Mrs. Lewing was a very strong person yet had a very gently and caring heart. She worked for Barksdale Credit Union for many years as the Collection Supervisor and later became manager of both the loan and collection departments. She retired in January of 1995 after many years of service where she gained many friends and developed long-lasting relationships. She loved to travel with her husband, listen to gospel music and work in her garden. The apples of her eye were her grandchildren whom she loved and adored. She loved her Lord with all of her heart and will be missed by all who knew her.
Pallbearers will be Keith Lewing, Johnny Lewing, Brandon Lewing and Roger Marcus.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to all the friends and neighbors that were so much a part of her life.
