It should come as no surprise to the people that knew Anna L. “Nancy” Lewis that she would leave this world with as little fanfare as possible. Nancy earned her passage into heaven on Jan. 28, 2018, following a brief illness. Moreover, according to her wishes, if you attempt to calculate her age, “it is none of your Beeswax!”

The daughter of the late George L. and Marie T. Berg, Nancy was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsulvania, and was preceded in death by her siblings Rosemary Berg Charles, George L. Berg Jr. and David T. Berg.

As with most children of the depression era, Nancy was traditional in her ways but generous in her giving. In addition to her key roles as wife, mother, and homemaker, Nancy worked a variety of administrative and volunteer positions throughout her life.

Nancy married the love of her life, the late David A. Lewis in 1948 and this devoted partnership would grow for over 64 years sprouting a family of six children, their spouses, 12 grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Nancy and Dave relocated over the years from Pennsylvania to Connecticut, Florida, and later to Georgia.

Nancy was a devout Catholic, a loving and patient mother, and an adoring grandmother. Known by her friends for her petite size, sparkling smile, and exceptional memory; her children/grandchildren will always remember her for her tenderness, crisp Ginger cookies, endless offers of refreshments, and her meticulous selections of unique greeting cards for every occasion.

Nancy is survived by her brother Bernard Berg (Linda) of Easton, Pennsylvania; her children, David A. Lewis Jr. (Sue) of Pittsgrove, New Jersey; Gail Lewis (Michael Godkin) of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina; Debbie Lewis Conyers (Rick, deceased) of Roswell, Georgia, Dan Lewis (Penny) of Carrollton, Georgia; Douglas Lewis (Allison) of Roxbury, Connecticut; and Christine Lakso (Darin) of Norcross, Georgia. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Erin Fuller, Brenden Lewis, Jeffrey Lewis (Jayne), Craig Lewis, Meagan Lewis Mapson (Jeff), Jessica Conyers Press (Natan), Leslie Lewis, Christopher Lewis, Brian Lewis, Amanda Lewis, Brad Conyers, Rachel Lakso; and great-grandchildren, Aidan Leurdijk, Colin Leurdijk, Blair Lewis, and Bennett Lewis.

Friends and family are invited to attend a celebration of life mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Carrollton, Georgia, on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be directed to either Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church or to Seasons Hospice Foundation (
