Lewis; three grandchildren, John W. Lewis, Jordi Summers and Izabella Walker; sisters, Wilma Wade and Penny Young and brothers, John Rose, Earl Newcomer and Terri Newcomer.

Her legacy of unconditional love and empathy for others lives on in all of the members of her family and the many other friends and loved ones whose lives she touched.
