Shelley Stewart has been married to Marty Stewart since 1975. They had two amazing kids, Dana (39) and Douglas (36). Shelley was born and raised in University City, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. She graduated from the University of Illinois and moved to Chicago, Illinois, working for the “Chicago Tribune” in advertising sales and marketing/research until Dana’s birth. A stay-at-home mom for 10 years, Shelley went back to work in real estate and was the manager/realtor for Oak Brook, an Illinois firm, for 20 years. Now Shelley is semi-retired and still does the books for the company. Her spare time is devoted to family and the not-for-profit, Dragonfly Angel Society, a web-based resource center for cancer survivors.
When Shelley’s daughter, Dana, was diagnosed with breast cancer, Shelley took on the role of care partner, her favorite title next to “Mom.”
