Kay C. Lewis, 73, passed peacefully from this life into the loving arms of our Lord on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at RoseCrest Assisted Living. Born July 16, 1947 in Rutherfordton, NC, she was the daughter of the late Louise Matheny Gray and James Edward Greene.
She attended the University of South Carolina in Spartanburg where she earned her Nursing Degree in 1979. She was a dedicated nurse who provided compassionate care to all of her patients. She retired from the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control in 2009.
Being a lifelong caregiver, Kay’s favorite pastime was caring for others and helping anyone in need. She loved gardening and cooking, but most of all, spending time with her family and friends. She was also an active member of Cudd Memorial Baptist Church for over 30 years.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 53 years, Tommy Gene Lewis, Sr., and her youngest son, David Scott Lewis.
Kay is survived by her children, Tommy Lewis, Jr. of Spartanburg, SC, Debbie Siderio (Chris) of Powhatan, VA, and Jennifer Halverson (Sam) of Charlotte, NC; three grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and brother, Roger Greene (Rita) of Westminster, CO.
