Geraldine Lewis lived life to it’s fullest. She rode horses, motor bikes and lived for the great outdoors. She was widowed by her husband Slim Howay. Her life of adventure included barrel racing, working on a ranch and dominating the travel industry. Her love of animals was shown throughout her life, her fav dog Bobby and her love of saving animals in need. Charlie, Bear and Annie.

In her later years she drove her RV around the world all on her own. She always enjoyed learning about life and the animals who lived in it. You would often find her explaining every episode of animal planet verbatim.

The strong woman that she was raised 3 children and 6 step children. She was also widowed by her second husband Hector Lewis. She brought joy to her family with her creativity, sewing skills and always made time for her family, 3 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. She sewed hundreds of quilts, ceremonial clothing and outfits for those in need. Her grandchildren quite often referred to her as ‘the coolest grandma in the world,’ screaming out teenage rock songs while driving them and their friends to sporting events.

Her children Kym, Rhonnda and Cliff remember the strong, independent, resourceful and beautifully talented woman who took on many adversities.
