Vickie Stewart McClain, 50, of Greensboro, GA, died Thursday, May 29, 2008 at St. Mary''s Hospice House in Bogart. Born on September 20, 1957 in Winston-Salem, NC, she was the daughter of Frances Ennis Stewart of Lugoff, SC and the late W. M. Stewart.

She taught second grade for two years at Harnett County Elementary School. In 1982 she moved to Greene County and was co-owner of Granite Shoals Marina.

To the Stewart and McClain families--Vickie will certainly be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. I don't think that I ever saw her when she was not smiling and displaying her true Southern charm which made her restaurant a pleasure to visit. I was the mail carrier for the restaurant for a number of years and she graciously allowed me to take my breaks there and always welcomed me with a big "hello" and her warm smile. Please accept my husband's and my deepest sympathy in your great loss. She was truly a pleasure to know.

We loved coming to Granite Shaols when Vickie was there. Our grandson took to her where he really didn't to others when he was a baby. She always would bring him lemons just to see him suck on them and would always get such a big laugh at his face. And that smile of hers could melt away any troubles. We will miss you Vickie!!!!!! We will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.

Vickie was a beautiful person, I've never met anyone who could make me laugh as much as she did. The world will now be a sadder place for me. I wish I had known so that I could have paid my respects.
