Nancy Ruth Lewis, 80, of Bay City, our loving and devoted wife, mother and grandma passed away on the afternoon of Thursday, October 2, 2014 at McLaren Bay Region. Nancy was born in Weston, West Virginia on July 28, 1934, the daughter of the late Gilbert and Bertha (Hutton) Goulet. While playing in the band at Central High School, Nancy would go on to meet a football player by the name of Harry Lewis. They dated, fell in love and were united in marriage on July 24, 1953 in Biloxi, Mississippi. Nancy worked as a comptometer operator at Dow Chemical and was also a dedicated homemaker. She loved traveling, winters in Gulf Shores, Alabama and Lakeland, Florida watching the Detroit Tigers spring training, bingo, spending time at the casinos, and most of all, spending time with her family. Nancy's great love of the Detroit Tigers, Bay City Central football and love for her family will live on for generations to come. Nancy leaves to cherish her memory her loving husband of sixty-one years, Harry Lewis. She was the unconditional loving mother of Terry (Betty Roberson) Lewis, David (Jacquelyn Lacosse) Lewis and Debbie (Howard) Gilbert and devoted grandma of Katie (Joe Spahr) Lewis and Christopher (Jennifer) Lewis. Nancy is also survived by her sister-in-law, Delores Sochacki and brother-in-law, Tom (Janet) Lewis. In addition to her parents, Nancy was preceded in death by her sister, Bethany Goulet and sisters-in-law, Jeanette (Bud) McShane and Barbara (Ed) Wachowski. Nancy's family will be present to receive visitors on Monday, October 6, 2014 from 10:00 AM until her 11:00 AM Memorial Liturgy at All Saints Parish (Church of St. Boniface), 510 N. Lincoln St., Bay City. Fr. Jose Maria Cabrera will officiate and private inurnment will be held in Great Lakes National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to All Saints Parish or the Humane Society. In honoring Nancy's love of the Detroit Tigers, those attending Monday are asked to wear their favorite Detroit Tigers apparel. Final arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 955 N. Pine Rd., Hampton Twp. Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family online at www.skorupskis.com When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom-filled room. Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little-but not too long And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me-but let me go. For this is a journey that we all must take And each must go alone. It's all a part of the Master's plan, A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick of heart Go to the friends we know, And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss Me-But Let me Go!

  6. Dave, Dad, Terry, Deb,…Chris and Katie….Words cannot begin to express how sorry I am over the loss of your Mom.wife and grandma.. I only knew Mom eight years, but I will always remember our wonderful times together. The recipes…emails…and her newsletter from Golf Shores. Every week she would send me a copy. We shared a love of bird watching, and planted flowers together. We had so much fun at the annual family Christmas party. Mom said to me on more than one occasion, she would like me to be her future daughter in law. πŸ™‚ We spent a lot of time watching the Tigers with Mom.
    She was a wonderful mother, wife, and grandma. She took wonderful care of the family, and kept the household running smoothly. I will always miss Mom….but speak with her daily…and she watches us from Heaven.
    She has left her earthly body, to be free of pain….and we will join her again one day. I love you…..and was blessed to have known you. You enriched my life more than you know. Love you always, Jackie

  9. Harry, I’m so sorry for your loss. Nancy and I marched in the BCC’s band, and played in the Band Bounce. I’m so happy to have sat and talked with her at our last reunion. I pray I took pictures of your table with the football on it. I wish we could have spent more time together as friends throughout the past 60 years or so, but it wasn’t meant to be. Nancy had a great personality, and she’ll be missed by a lot of her classmates…I’m positive.
