On Friday, July 22, 2022, Peggy J. Lewis passed away. She was born in Newport News to Robert Henry and Mildred Josephine (Dale) Lewis on January 13, 1939 and remained a life-long resident of the Peninsula. She is predeceased by her parents, and her siblings: Rita Huffman, Robert Lewis, Shirley Little, Joyce Todd, Thomas Lewis, John Lewis, Patricia Wallace and Randolph Lewis. She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
Peggy loved spending time at the beach and enjoyed many hours there, often with nieces and nephews in tow to enjoy those outings with her. She spoke fondly of her jobs and the friends she made at The Young Men’s Shop in Newport News and Circle Lanes Bowling Alley in Hampton. However, she said her “best job ever” was working as an Administrative Assistant for the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office for 21 years.
The family would like to thank the staff at Warwick Forest (Keswick Place Assisted Living and the memory care unit at The Gardens) for their excellent care of our aunt. Visits from Sarah and Walker, the facility dog, were the highlight of her days this past year.
Services will be Friday, August 12, 2022 at Altmeyer Funeral Home – Denbigh Chapel, 12pm. The family will receive friends at 11am prior to the service. Burial will be private.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Alzheimer’s Association.
