If her cup was around, one of her kids or grandkids were going to take it.She worked at Mainstream for many years and she loved everyone there, and “Devorn” was loved by Mainstream. The world has never known a more kind soul or anyone with a bigger heart. She was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Ricky Don Lewis and Rodrick Dale Lewis.
