Flora Judge Lewis, 85, of Rossville, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.
Flora dedicated her life to loving and taking care of her family. She was a hard-worker all of her life and retired from Rossville Mills. She would say that she loved to work and only retired when the plant closed. Her happiest times were spent with family, camping, and on the fishing bank in Langston, Alabama late at night. This was her thinking time.
Mrs. Lewis was preceded in death by her husband, J.C. Lewis, parents, Mary King Judge & Walter Judge, sisters, Gertrude Parks, Daisy Gently, Gracie Bradford, Juanita Harbin, Mary Alice Judge, and brother, Claude Judge.
Survivors include her children, Glenda (Mike) Marshall, Margaret Edmondson, & Robert Larry Lewis; grandchildren, Christopher (Amanda) Marshall, Nicole (Cruz) Silva, & John (Jodi) Edmondson; great-grandchildren, Brayden & Ben Marshall, Elizabeth, Isabelle, & Cruz Silva, and Phillip Edmondson; sisters, Ina Hunt, Carolyn Reel, & Polly Keller; sister-in-law, June Roden; many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to express their appreciation to Amedisys Hospice for taking care of their mother. Her last wishes were that her family be happy, stay close and love one another. “When you closed your eyes and soared to heaven, we could hear the faint flutter of your wings and you left.” (Author unknown)
