Her Story

On Thursday, February 21, 2019 our beloved mother Rossie Lewis peacefully transitioned home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Rossie Lewis was born on December 28, 1937 to the late Joseph and Penny Mae Hill in Thomson, GA.

Rossie was educated in the Thomson-McDuffie school system. As a young woman she moved to Philadelphia, PA where she married her childhood sweetheart, Robert Lewis. From this union five children were born. They later relocated to Levittown, PA. She was gainfully employed with Columbia Lighting in Levittown for over 20 years. After retiring Rossie along with her loving husband moved back to Thomson, GA, which she always considered as home.

She was a life long member of United House of Prayer for All People. She faithfully served for many years with the “Back the Attack” in North Philadelphia and the “Faith Club” in Dearing, GA. She also sang with the Grace Get Together choir in Dearing, GA. On several occasions she and her husband would travel to Pennsylvania to spend time with their children and grandchildren. While in visiting in Pennsylvania she would often return to North Philadelphia to work in the kitchen.

In Dearing, GA when she could no longer drive herself, her husband would faithfully take her nightly to the House of Prayer. She was a G-Class worker and Tithes payer.

Some of her most enjoyable times were having her grandchildren visit with her every summer in Georgia. She loved working in her yard and reading her bible daily. She also enjoyed cooking and baking for her family. She was known for her Georgia biscuits!

She is preceded in death by her loving husband Robert Lewis; her parents Joseph and Penny Mae Hill; Six brothers, Elder Robert Hill, Sr., Leroy, Royce, Ira, Joseph and Thomas Hill. Two sisters, Lizzie Huff and Mary Leslie.

She leaves to cherish her loving memories to her five children; Robbie Lewis-Nixon, Juanita Lewis, Charles (Bernistine) Hill, Tonya Felder, Rob, Jr. (Lenore) Lewis. Nine grandchildren; Art, Jr, Arieal, CJ, DeJuan, Julian, Rakim, Raewon and Alysion. Ten great-grandchildren; Vanessa, Tynajah, Aniyah, Alyna, Aniyah, Jalen, Ava, Aryana, Raegan and Aliyah. Two sisters; Bernice Hill and Quennie Cease. One God-daughter; Alma Benton and host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives and special devoted friends. She also leaves to share in her memory her devoted companion Rico.
