Celebrating the life of

Pamela Stewart

January 12, 1958 - August 18, 2022

Pamela Stewart

Pamela Stewart, formerly Goodine Cullen, passed away on August 18, 2022. She is survived by her husband George B Stewart II and daughter Tiffany Cullen. Pamela will be greatly missed by her friends and family here and around the country. As a young woman living in Charleston, SC, in the 70’s, Pamela was the first black person to own a business on King Street and one of the youngest business owners in the city. As a young business owner in Charleston, Pamela met who would become her closest and lifetime friend Julia Campbell when she dropped a pencil while standing on a sidewalk. 

While in Charleston, Pamela met and befriended many of the city and state’s lawmakers, business leaders and educators. She, herself, became an educator. She became the first woman to own a barber college in South Carolina and the first black woman to do so in the city of Columbia. Pamela even opened several training centers for further education in hair-styling and hair replacement. Within her colleges and training centers, Pamela went above and beyond the expected training of cutting and styling to promote reading, comprehension and everyday etiquette, business management, corporate communication, and even how to write a thank you note. She met her students where they were to encourage and transform their lives for the better. As a business owner and creative, Pamela also started her own line of Cosmetics that she named after her daughter, Cosmetics by Tiffany, and self-manufacutured a line of hair and body oil called New Horizon. Over the years, she produced recipes and products for haircare, personal care, and baked goods. A true Renaissance woman. 

As a mother, she was ever devoted and put a lot of her own personal projects and career goals on hold to insure her daughter had the time and love needed. She always encouraged and supported every dream and tried to guide Tiffany into lifelong career and personal goals. Tiffany would and does always say that Pamela (her mom) is her best friend. 

Widowed from her marriage to John Cullen, her daughter’s father, Pamela moved to Savannah where she started her life over and began rebuilding her career. In doing so, she met her current husband, George Stewart, who became the love of her remaining life. When making breakfast or planning a trip, she made sure her “Georgie” as she affectionate called him, would have everything he wanted and needed. 

Pamela leaves behind a myriad of family and friends who loved her dearly and will forever hold her close in their hearts.
