Ida Jo (Haas) Paulk Stewart went to be with the Lord on January 8, 2024. She was born on September 15, 1928 to Eva (Russell) Hass and William Haas. Jody attended Deming Public Schools. She married Clifford Paulk Jr. in 1946. Their union produced William, Clifford III, Richard and Ronald (who was born with cerebral palsy).

Her husband Clifford passed in 1955 and she was left to raise four boys on her own. When she was 38 she enrolled at Western New Mexico University to attain her teaching degree. She then taught second grade at Columbus Elementary school until her retirement in 1990. She received a Golden Apple award while teaching at Columbus. After retirement she married Clyde Stewart in 1990.
