She walked in a quiet but enduring faith. She was a beacon to her children, a strong, humble Christian woman who loved her Lord and Savior.
In previous years, she was a Deacon at her church and a volunteer at Las Yescas Elementary. She loved cooking for her children and grandchildren and, as she would say, “for All My Children”. To all of us she was “Amá”.

(Steve) Grendel, and Sylvia G. Sánchez; grandchildren, Amy A. Lewis, Fabian Flores, Claudia Ponce, Jessica A. Hawkins, Christina S. Galán, Adrian Ponce, Jesse Aaron Atkinson, Tyler Grendel, and Austin Grendel; great-grandchildren, Nathaniel A. Lewis, Allison A. Lewis, Kathryn A. Lewis, Madelyn A. Lewis, and Zephaniah Atkinson Grigar.
