Joseffa Conrad Stewart, wife of Boyd Stewart, longtime Olema rancher, died unexpectedly Monday in Carmel where she was on a holiday.
Death apparently was due to a heart attack.
Mrs. Stewart, 78, was born in San Francisco. She had lived in West Marin for 60 years.
Stewart long has been a leader in the West Marin ranching community and operates a ranch there. Park of the former Stewart property is now included in the Point Reyes National Seashore.
Also surviving is her daughter, JoAnn Wisby of Olema; a sister, Lou Phillippi of San Francisco; and one granddaughter.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Monday at 11 a.m. at Sacred Heart Church in Olema. Burial will be at Olema Cemetery.
The family prefers memorial donations to the Music Scholarship Fund at Dominican College in San Rafael.
