Lois Lee Lewis

Lois Lee Lewis Lois Lee Lewis, age 100, passed away to her heavenly home on February 27, 2019 in Murchision, Texas, with her family by her side. She was born on December 21, 1918 to Lonnie Lee and Tina Viola Read Leopard. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband J.D. Lewis.
Lois had an amazing life and lived it to the fullest. She was a very hard worker, strong willed, and determined. She took care of her husband J.D. of 73 years before his passing, and her daughter was her pride and joy. Lois loved the Lord and served him all her days. Through her life she led several people to the Lord with her witness for Him. She served as pianist and Sunday School teacher for Mt. Zion Baptist Church for over 30 years. She was a very caring and merciful lady who took many in under her wing and treated them as her own. In her family there was no "in-laws", if you were in her family, you were family, period. She had a very close relationship with all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a great example to her family and taught them how to love.
Her contributions to the community are too numerous to list individually, however for the better part of four decades she alongside her husband, J.D. helped found and serve in interior positions in the following organizations: Black Jack 4 H Club, Athens Riding Club, East TX Horse show Association, Henderson County Horse Committee, Texas State Challenge Horse Committee, Texas State Challenge Horse Show, Henderson County Livestock Show, particularly The Queens and Princesses Contest. Her entire life was spent in service to others especially the youth of Henderson County.
Survivors include her sister, Mae Hodge; her daughter, Sandy Lewis Thrasher and husband Steve; her grandchildren, Russell Quattlebaum and wife Amanda, Jaime Mire and husband Clifton, Chris Quattlebaum and wife Alina Rich, David Thrasher and wife Kelsey, Ashli Thrasher; her great-grandchildren, Casey and Megan Stegall-Mire, Kaitlyn Mire, Dakota Mire, Jayden Mire and Julianne Mire; her great-great grandson, Rhett Stegall-Mire; several nieces or nephews.
Lois would say if she were here with us to today, "Serve the Lord, your fellow man, love your family, and don't take any wooden nickels." In lieu of flowers, please make memorials in Lois's name to the East Texas Hospice which is based out of Tyler, Texas.
