It is with great sadness that the family of Patricia Lucas Lewis announces her passing after a courageous battle with cancer on August 28, 2019, at age of 85 years. Known fondly to family and friends as Pat, Trish, Grandma Trish, or simply Mama, she was born June 22, 1934 to Pauline and George Lucas.

She also enjoyed playing bridge and flower arranging for her church, St Mark’s. Her friends and family, both near and extended, were very dear to her and a big part of her life. She was a strong and courageous woman.
