Elizabeth "Liz" Lewis Obituary

Elizabeth "Liz" Lewis, 93 of Byesville, passed away on Sunday (December 10, 2023). She was born July 19, 1930 to the late Tom and Mary (Guttas) Lewis.

Liz graduated from Byesville High School in 1947 and also graduated from Cambridge Business College. She worked in the Accounting Dept at Plastic Toys, Byesville Pottery, Ekco, and retired after 33 years from Fabri Form. 

Liz was a devout Catholic and a prayer warrior. When a family member or friend was in need of prayer she was always their first phone call. She enjoyed traveling and often reminisced about her travels to Europe and her visit to Rome. However, one of her favorite travels was a walk up the alley to see her post office friends in Byesville. She loved to shop, dance, and especially loved her family and friends. She was known for her birthday and anniversary phone calls to those she loved. 

Liz was a bookkeeper and member of the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Byesville, Ohio until it closed. Recently, she was a member of Christ Our Light Church in Cambridge, Ohio and served on the finance committee.

In addition to her parents, Liz was preceded in death by her siblings, Freddie, Freda Saba, John, George, Adele; her niece, Kristie Morrison; and her best friend and cousin, Geneva Lewis Tonnous.

Left to cherish her memory are Jack (Barb) Lewis, George (Teresa) Saba, Jr., Tom Lewis, Maria (Mike) Burkey, Paula (Jim) Tonnous Bakos, and Thomasina (Dennis) Tonnous Crock; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Friends may call from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday (December 15, 2023) at Black-Epperson Funeral Home (231 E Main, Byesville).  Additional visitation hours will be held Saturday (December 16, 2023) from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Christ Our Light Parish (701 Gomber Avenue, Cambridge), where a Funeral Mass will follow at 11 a.m. with Father Nicholas Ginnetti serving as Celebrant.
