Elizabeth “Libby” Lewis, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016. She was born in Samson County, N.C. to the late Avery and Mittie Warren.
Libby worked as a retail clerk at the Naval Base Exchange in Norfolk, before turning her life’s focus on becoming a homemaker and raising a family.
She was a longtime member of Ocean View Presbyterian Church and was active in the Women’s Auxiliary of the VFW Post No. 3160 in Ocean View and the Lennox Gardening Club.
Libby had a generous and caring soul, and when able, lent a hand to anyone who needed help. She cared for everyone in her community and loved her family dearly. In this difficult time, it brings comfort to her family to know that she is going home to be reunited with her husband, Brooks Emerson Lewis, her parents and her six siblings.
Left to cherish Libby’s memory is her daughter, Shari Wootten and husband, Andrew; granddaughters, Elizabeth McClure and husband, Colin, and Anna Wingate; her son, Ronald Lewis; and grandson, Ronald Hooper.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016, from 6-8 p.m. at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Tidewater Drive Chapel. A funeral service will be held Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016, at 11 a.m. in the funeral home chapel. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Cemetery.
