Elizabeth Lewis
Elizabeth "Betty" V. Lewis, 87, St. Marys, died at 10:57 a.m. Nov. 20, 2013, at her residence, with her daughters at her side.
She was born April 16, 1927, in Sidney, to Albert and Katherine Mears Chappie.   In 1942, she married Frank Eberle, but became a young widow less than two years later when Frank died while serving his country during the Battle of the Bulge. On June 7, 1947, she married Ralph "Tubby" A. Lewis, who died Jan. 11, 2004.
Survivors include three daughters, Sharon (Richard) Wappelhorst, Steele, Ala., Sandie (William) Shopp, Salado, Texas, and Betty (Richard) Burdick, Huntsville, Ala.; 11 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and 5 great-great-grandchildren.
Also deceased are a great-grandson, Matthew Wappelhorst; two sisters, Pauline Paulus and Alberta Fannon; and a brother, Charles Chappie.
She was a homemaker and worked for a number of years in the dietary department of Joint Township District Memorial Hospital, St. Marys. She was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church and its Altar Rosary Sodality, and American Legion Post #323 Auxiliary, all in St. Marys. Her favorite pastimes included embroidery and traveling to visit her children and grandchildren. A loving mother and a wonderful grandmother, she will be missed immensely by the members of her family.
Mass of Christian Burial is 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, the Rev. Barry Stechschulte officiating. Burial will follow at Resthaven Memory Gardens near Moulton.
