Patricia (Anthony) Lewis passed away in Lake Bluff, Illinois, on December 27, 2018 at the age of 92. Patricia was born in Erie to Fred and Marion Anthony on June 10, 1926.

Patricia was a resident of Erie for 80 years and graduated from Academy High School. She was employed by the Boston Store until her duties as a mother dominated her life.

Patricia was the beloved wife the late of Norbert Lewis; mother to Michael, Linda (Cieslak), Mary, David and John. She is survived by her brother Fred Anthony, 12 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

In addition, she enjoyed antiquing, cooking, gardening, playing bridge and, most of all, sailing on Lake Erie. Patricia, despite many hardships in later life, always had a positive outlook due to her strong belief in God. She will be missed by all.
