Carolyn Ann Lewis, 79, of Bladenboro went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, March 18, 2021 at Southeastern Regional Medical Center. Left to cherish her memory are her loving husband of 61 years, William Lewis of the home, sons, Michael Lewis (Charlene) of Bladenboro and Jonathan Lewis (Sherry) also of Bladenboro, two sisters, Shirley Edwards of Raeford, Joyce Pettus of Fort Mills, SC, one sister-in-law Carolyn C. Biddy of Lumberton, four grandchildren: Ethan Lewis (Katie), Trent Lewis, Callie Lewis, and Logan Lewis, two great grandchildren Leighton Lewis and Everleigh Lewis, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph D. Clements and Ruby Davis Clements, an infant son, James Gregory Lewis, and brother, Jerry Clements.
Carolyn was a devoted Christian wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. She always put her family’s needs first. Her sons and grandchildren were the apple of her eye, and she always treated her daughters-in-law like they were her own. Carolyn was outgoing and social, always sharing an encouraging word with others. She was a devoted member of West Bladenboro Baptist Church and loved her church family. She enjoyed mowing her grass, shopping, and spending time with those she loved. The joy, compassion, and kindness she shared have left an eternal impression on the hearts of many. Those she left behind look forward to meeting her again one day.
The family will receive friends on Saturday, March 20, 2021 from 7-9 pm at the Bladen Gaskins Chapel in Bladenboro. A graveside service will be held on Sunday, March 21, 2021 at 4:00 pm in the Lewis Cemetery, Bladenboro with Pastor David G. Anderson officiating.
All attendees are respectfully asked to wear masks and practice social distancing.
