Debra Elizabeth Lewis

April 8, 1958 - July 26, 2019

Quietly at the Northumberland Hills Hospital on Friday, July 26th after nearly a year long battle with breast cancer.  For over 41 years the beloved wife of Walter Lewis.  Loving mother of Erin Panepinto (Rob) and Sarah Smith (Steve).  Doting grandmother of Rose and Lily Smith.  Dear daughter of Gordon and Joan Pearce of Petherick’s Corners, and loved daughter-in-law of the late Fred and Helen Lewis of Roseneath.  Sister of Wally (Connie), Terry, Teresa, Lorrie Pearce and Cathy Cotrona.  Sister-in-law of Leonard Lewis. Proud aunt to her nieces, nephews and great-niece and nephews. Friend to many.  Teacher to some. Deb loved being creative.  After years of various forms of expression, she found herself teaching folk art and then quilting.  She loved making things, especially beautiful, practical things.  Every gift of them came with part of her inside.

A special thanks to the nursing teams in the Cancer Clinic and Intensive Care Unit at the hospital.  They made a difference. Friends may call at MacCoubrey Funeral Home Cobourg, on Wednesday July 31, from 7 to 9 pm. A memorial service will be held at the funeral home on Thursday August 1 at 2 pm.
