Lavinia M. Stewart was born in St. John, New Brunswick, on 17 August 1857. She was the eldest child of the Rev. Charles Stewart and Harriet Starr. At an early age, she and her family moved to Sackville, New Brunswick, where her father was, for many years, the Dean of Theology at Mount Allison University. She was sister to Harriet “Hattie” Stewart (1862-1931).
She attended the Mount Allison Female Academy from 1870-1874, graduating in piano, as one of the first two music graduates of Mount Allison. From 1875 to 1881 she taught piano at the Academy. In 1881, she traveled to Scotland to study piano and organ with Emil Burger and J.J. Findlay. Stewart died in East Kingston, New Hampshire, on 23 May 1907.
