LEWIS; Elizabeth (Betty) Stein
1922 – 2015
Having lived a blessed life, Betty passed away peacefully with joy, on September 30th, with family at the age of 92. Born of Scottish immigrants in Vancouver, BC, where she grew up, she met the love of her life, Joseph Lewis, who was blinded by an accident at age 18. Together they raised a family of four children, blessed with their love and courage. Survived now by her daughter Ruth (Bud), her sons, David, James (Jane), and Mark (Jill), her grandsons, Stephen, Andrew, Michael (Oriana), Dale, and Jeffrey (Alison), her granddaughters, Joanne (Craig), Corinna, Sarah (Brian) and Nicole, also great granddaughters Lakiesha, Ashlee, and Alexandra, numerous nephews and nieces, sister Margaret Burns, sisters-in-law Dolly De Domenico and Nina Fletcher. She was a source of inspiration to all who knew her. And we thank you Mom, for the treasure chest of memories you have provided us; your spiritual life has been a testament to us all. The family wishes to thank the emergency ward nursing staff (especially Marie) at Peace Arch Hospital for their kindness and attention, and a special thanks to Dr. Niamh Darby. And thanks to all the friends of Betty and to the entire family for all the kindnesses expressed.
We love you dearly Mom, and will keep you in our hearts forever. Now as a family we continue to pray:
“Father, bless us and keep us, and make your face to shine upon us and be gracious unto us. And lift up your countenance upon us and give us peace. Even so, come Lord Jesus”.
Private family ceremony only.
