Ms. Lewis also leaves behind one “special” granddaughter, Jennifer Harbin, also of Hot Springs. Ms. Lewis leaves behind 14 great-grandchildren as well as several nieces and nephews who she helped raise at one time or other and last but not least she leaves behind her soulmate and friend for the last five years, Roger Humphreys, of the Pines Nursing Home. He made her smile daily.
