LAVONNE L. LEWIS

LAVONNE L. LEWIS

Lavonne L. Lewis went to be with her savior on the evening of Friday, August 23rd at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Tacoma. Born Lavonne Lucille Hamerly on October 30th, 1935 in Sheridan, WY, she was the youngest of 4 sisters. She married husband William “Bill” Lewis on November 22, 1963 in Pollock Pines, CA. Their three children, Michael, Kevin and Kimberly Lewis, 11 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren were her pride and joy. She was also very fond of their three rescue pets, Lacey, Sophie and Thumper and doted on them often.

Prior to moving into their beloved retirement community, Lavonne and Bill made a beautiful home in Issaquah that provided comfort to many for over 35 years. She was a skilled square dancer, enjoyed her floral gardens and loved playing card games with friends and family. She enjoyed traveling to see family in Brazil, Australia and Germany. She hiked Mt Haleakala and camped at Yellowstone National Park alongside her family as well.

She tended to friends when ill and crocheted baby blankets for charity. She lived as an example of love and inclusion. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt and friend. Even throughout their great loss she is keeping the family joined together.

May she rest joyfully in the arms of her maker. “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26.

The family will be hosting a reception in her honor to be held in the courtyard of her residence, Village Green Retirement Campus in Federal Way. It will be open to all who loved her on Saturday, September 7th from 1 PM – 4 PM. Memorial contributions may be made to the Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC).
