Obituary

Patricia G. (Pat) Lewis met her Savior at the portals of Heaven on Sunday, October 25, 2020, just 8 days past her 89th birthday. Her children were at her side as she departed for Home. Pat was born in Coleman, Texas, on October 17, 1931, to Benjamin A. and Evelyn H. Ganaway. She attended schools in Coleman and later Grand Prairie. Her family moved back to the Ganaway family farm at Mt. Peak about the time she entered High School. Pat was a cheerleader her senior year and graduated in 1949. Pat began dating Troy Lewis in 1948 following his honorable discharge from the Army. They were married on August 4, 1951. In a break with tradition, Pat and Troy married in his home church, First Methodist of Midlothian. The custom of the day was to marry in the bride’s church (First Baptist of Midlothian), but Troy had accepted a leadership role in his church and Pat was desirous to honor her new husband by marrying in and attending First Methodist. Pat and Troy were faithful members their entire married life. Pat and Troy had two children, Kim and Keri, whom they raised and educated in Midlothian. Both graduated MHS and both now have their homes on the Lewis family farm. Pat had three successful careers in her life of 89 years. Her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids will attest they had the best Mom / MeMom ever. In addition to her role as Mom, Pat worked as an executive secretary at the Mobil Oil Research Lab in Duncanville for 7 years and then as Secretary to the Superintendent of Midlothian Schools from which she retired after 23 years. Her mother, Evelyn Ganaway, had been a teacher for nearly 30 years, most of those at Midlothian High School. It seemed only natural that both of Pat’s children and two of her three grandchildren would pursue careers in education. Perhaps Pat actually had four careers: her favorite role was that of grandmother to three and great-grandmother to nine. In addition to shepherding grandchildren and great-grandchildren during her retirement years, she enjoyed raising goats, donkeys and longhorns with Troy on his grandfather’s farm. Also, one of her other enjoyable pastimes in those early retirement years was taking Dan Dipert bus tours around the country with Troy. In later years they enjoyed simple vacation trips to destinations like Red River, NM and Fredericksburg, TX. Pat was preceded in death by her parents, by Troy her beloved husband of 69 years who went Home exactly four months before her (June 25) and by her infant granddaughter, Katie Lauren Emerson. She is survived by son, L. Kim Lewis; daughter and son-in-law, Keri and Bobby Emerson; grandchildren, Leigh and Billy Fields, Jake and Megan Emerson and Sam and Emily Emerson; nine great-grandkids; and her beloved “baby” brother, Nick B. Ganaway of Atlanta , Ga. A graveside celebration of life for family and friends will be held at the Mt. Zion Cemetery, 3211 Mt. Zion Rd., Midlothian, Tx. 76065 on Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. The family will appreciate observance of social distancing and face coverings during the short visiting time after the service. The body will lie in state at the Midlothian Funeral Home, 200 E. Ave. E, Midlothian, Texas on Friday, October 30, 2020 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. for those who wish to pay their respects in a more private and Covid-safe setting. The casket will be open; however the family will not be present during these hours. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Pat’s name may be made to First United Methodist Church Jesus Fund, 800 S. 9th St., Midlothian, Tx. 76065 or Happy Hill Farm, 3846 Hwy. 144, Granbury, Tx, 76048 Family footnote: Mom spent her birthday in the hospital. We could not be with her, but we could deliver the mountain of greeting cards she received. There were so many she could not open them all in one day! We later learned that the Baylor Waxahachie staff had given her a party complete with banners and balloons. She texted someone that evening that she had a good birthday! We are profoundly thankful for the many cards and prayers that were sent her way and for the hospital staff who loved her enough to throw her a party. There aren’t enough words…..

I have so many memories of Pat (and I have to include Troy); I grew up knowing, respecting and loving them all through my growing up years in our church. Pat, always the smiling gracious lady who never missed an opportunity to say 'hello, good to see you!' She was such a help to me during my earliest teaching years. As I started my career in MISD, she was in a position to advise and direct me when I had to resign to move away during husband's military obligations. Her advise helped me know the best decisions to make for my 'future retirement' many years ahead. I will forever be grateful for her expertise and care in making certain I knew the options available. Leigh, Jake and Sam may not remember my 'full circle' story that I shared when each was in my 5th grade class at J. R. Irvin: I was so honored to share that not only did their Grandmother Pat have a special place in my life and heart . . . but their GreatGrandmother Evelyn also . . . she was my MHS Senior year Spanish teacher and Senior Class sponsor. That is a 'full circle' memory story I will always remember with love. My heartfelt love and respect to all the Lewis Family, Jeanne Ray

Pat and Troy are two of the most special people I’ve ever met. Their love for God, one another and all of God’s children was truly evident. I have so many fond memories of visiting with them at church Sunday mornings and at Lord’s Acre. But perhaps my fondest memory is of Mrs. Pat’s beautiful smile. She wore it every time I saw her. And it greatly complimented that of her dear husband’s. It’s such a blessing to know the Lewis’s. They are so very loved and truly will be missed.
