Carol Ann Lewis went home to Jesus on March 12, 2021 at age 87.
Carol was born to Clarence and Lucille (Beiesdorfer) Cron on March 2, 1934 in Celina, Ohio. As a child, she excelled in school and loved to read.
Carol met her husband, Robert Lewis at the Celina Roller Rink. They were high school sweethearts and married on July 4, 1952. The family quickly grew to three children, Terry, Sandy, and Jeff. They raised their family and lived in Celina most of their life, moving to Florida at the end of 2019 for the warmer weather and to be closer to family.
Carol was employed as a secretary at Immaculate Conception High School early in her working years. She retired from Kessler Builders as the Office Manager after nearly 39 years.
Carol also loved working in her garden, canning, and all kinds of crafts. She was especially passionate about quilting and created many beautiful quilts over the years. Her work was viewed and honored a number of times by local quilting groups.
Carol was predeceased by her parents, Clarence and Lucille Cron; siblings and their spouses: John and Rose Cron, Robert and Jean Cron, Betty Lou and Larry Shearer, and Judy Cron. Carol is survived by brother David and Mary Jane, and her children and their spouses: Terry (Carol) Lewis, Middleburg, FL, Sandy (David) Fritz, Mason, OH, and Jeff (Kathy) Lewis, Simpsonville, SC, as well as 6 grandchildren, and 9 great grandchildren.
