Our truly kind and wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, sister and friend, Angeline Lunceford Lewis, returned to our Heavenly Father, April 11, 1997 of causes incident to age.
Born May 27, 1908, Orem, Utah, to Joseph W. and Mary Cordner Lunceford. Married Elvin William Lewis, June 16, 1926 in the Salt Lake Temple. He preceded her in death February 26, 1995. Her long life has been one of service to her family and friends. She has been a faithful lifetime member of the LDS Church, serving diligently in several capacities of every auxiliary. She was a member of the Sacajawea Daughters of Utah Pioneers and had been president of Tabiona High Band Mothers. To the very end, even through her physical suffering, she remained supportive of her family and retained her remarkable memory, her keen wit and her dignity. To her large posterity, she was an example of grace, love and unwavering faith in the Lord, a legacy to bless untold generations to come.She attended Lincoln High School in Orem, Utah. After marriage, she lived in Tabiona, where she was very supportive of her husband, who was a sheep and cattle rancher, dairyman and land developer. He developed Mt. Tabby Springs Subdivision. She loved Tabby Mountain and loved sharing it with others. She loved gathering chokecherries off the hill. Everyone benefited through jars of jelly made with love. She served as Mother of the Year for the Uintah Basin, and as alternate Utah Mother of the year in 1967. She loved to work in her garden and flower garden -- which were always exhibits of her love for the outdoors...Her motto "A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives a rose" helped exemplify her love for compassionate service...Always doing something for someone else. She delighted in the fact that all ages from town called her "Grandma Lewis". Everyone enjoyed an ice cream treat on all visits to her home.
