Patricia (Diane) Lewis died at home on Monday night, February 1, 2016. Her husband (Donald Lewis) and her sister (Phyllis Brandon) were beside her bed at the time. The massive cancer discovered in her pelvic area in April 2015 eventually caused her death. Surgery and subsequent chemo treatments failed to totally cure her. Rather than continue treatments, Diane opted to leave the hospital in January and spend the rest of her life at home.
She was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi to John Paul Morris and Bessie Evelyn Morris on June 18, 1941. After being raised and schooled in Mississippi. She sought work in Memphis, TN and later moved to the Dallas area.
After employment in property management for 30 plus years she retired and entered activities that were pleasing to her. She loved animals so she volunteered to help at the Operations Kindness shelter in Carrollton. She spent many hours at adoption shows for dogs and cats. Another activity that interested her was gardening. She underwent training to become a Master Gardener.
She was a very personable individual and accumulated many friends over the years. She loved to travel and did so with her husband. Many vacations include cruises and visits to various islands.
A memorial service in her honor will be held at the North Dallas Funeral Home chapel, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch , Texas 75234 at 2 pm Thursday, February 11, 2016.
