Obituary: Barbara Jeanne Lewis

March 1, 1958 ~ January 29, 2023

Barbara “Barb” Jeanne Lewis, 64 years old of Sturgeon Bay, WI, died on January 29, 2023 at the Sturgeon Bay Health Center, Sturgeon Bay.

Barb was born in Chicago, IL, on March 1, 1958, the daughter of Robert and Daisy Ann Lewis and lived there until the family moved to Moline, IL, in 1964. She graduated from Moline High School in 1976 and moved to Sturgeon Bay in 1980. Over the years, Barb worked in banks in Moline and Sturgeon Bay, retiring from Nicolet National Bank in Sturgeon Bay in 2018. For the last several years Barb lived with her parents, taking care of them in their later years. She had been a member of Faith Lutheran Church in Moline and Bay View Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay.

Barb’s favorite pastimes included her passion for reading and her love for spending time with her nieces and nephews and then their children at Sand Bay, especially buying them floating toys for playing in the bay. In her younger days she liked traveling to visit family in Colorado.

Barb is survived by her sister, Kathy (Rick) Neylon; brothers, Dave (Trudy) Lewis, Tom (Cathie) Lewis, and John Lewis; nine nieces and nephews, Zak (Monika) Lewis, Andy (Jen) Lewis, Kate Dechambre (Phil Gieschen), Mark (Bekah) Lewis, Matt (Natalie) Lewis, Elyssa Lewis, Sarah Dechambre, Jake Lewis, and Tanner Lewis; seven great-nieces and nephews; and her close friends, Erin Peterson and Ingrid Honold. She was preceded in death by her parents.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

The family would like to thank all the very special people at the Sturgeon Bay Health Center and Door County Medical Center for the love and care they gave to Barb and the rest of the family.
