Lois Taylor Lewis, 83, of Newport, peacefully passed away Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2021, surrounded by family in her home.
The graveside service will be open to the public and is at 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8 at Bayview Cemetery in Morehead City. For those unable to attend, the service can be viewed on through her obituary page on Munden Funeral Home’s website.
Lois was born on April 24, 1938, in the home across the street from where she passed. Lois’s life was filled with smiles, strength, warmth, empathy, generosity, and laughter. Her strong love for Jesus and living life the way He did, inspired others to love Him also.
Lois met her husband Greg at Morehead City High School, and they were married in 1957. They spent 64 loving, faithful, devoted years together. She had a passion for family and spending time with them and was so proud of her three children and six grandchildren.
Lois worked at the U.S. Marine Base at Cherry Point in the Technical Library after spending many years as a full-time homemaker. Lois spent her life selflessly serving the Lord and others at Soundview Free Will Baptist Church. She had a deep passion for music and singing, cooking for others which brought her great joy, and a deep love for the culture and people of Carteret County.
She is survived by her family: husband, Gregory P. Lewis; son, Greg Lewis, Jr. and wife Tracey of Newport, NC; daughter, Valerie Lewis Kennedy and husband Jay of Maitland, FL; daughter, Joni Lewis Mansfield and husband Mark of Morehead City, NC; and grandchildren, Hannah Kennedy Sellers and husband Dr. Jason, Megan Mansfield, Kathryn Kennedy Ernst and husband John, Jessica Lewis, Michael Mansfield, and Maddelyn Mansfield.
