Teresa Anne Lewis, 60, passed away peacefully on   July 28, 2020 at her residence in Winchester, Indiana with her loving husband by her side. Teresa was born October 1, 1959 in Union City, Indiana to the late James and Lilly Powers. She was a 1978 graduate of Jay County High School and employed at IU Health Jay for 7 years. Previously she had worked at Blissfield Jay Products for 35 years before the plant closed. She was the most dedicated employee who worked hard all of her life. Teresa married the love of her life, James Victor Lewis on September 24, 1983 who survives. James and Teresa’s children were their Labrador dogs and she loved horses, especially the 400+ Breyer horses.  She enjoyed going to Siesta Key, spending time with her family and having fun with her friends playing cards at their home. Teresa was a loyal, generous, fun loving, witty person, who was a great listener and best friend to all. However, you knew her, no one could ask for a more loving wife to James for 36 years, an amazing sister, a sassy sister-in law, an unforgettable aunt, awesome cousin, and forever friend. She made a difference in people’s life by always sharing a smile and a kind word.
Teresa was the oldest of the Powers sisters who survive, Janet Powers-Portland, IN and sister, Cindy (Doug) Cash. She is also survived by her two loving sisters-in-law’s; Dinah Collins and Cheryl (Dave) Tillman, Union City, IN and several nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents and father-mother-in law, James and Jeanne Lewis.

I met Teresa in January of 2018 at Jay County Hospital where she worked. She was soon to become part of the IU Health Jay team and I was very pleased to have her on our team. I had never seen such a "go getter!" She had work ethics like none I had ever seen before. She was never late, she never called in, she took an occasional vacation that she was always excited about and she was very particular about how she did her job. She even made sure that we all had the right "tools" to do our job and had James put our names on our box knives. Teresa had a poinsettia in our department that she nurtured long after Christmas was over and even had a contest with a fellow team mate to see whose would last the longest. Teresa won, hands down. She was very kind and caring and I have missed her the past nine months. I am so sorry that she will now be missed forever by her family and friends. She was a most wonderful human being.

Teresa is remembered as the little time who was on her pony as our school passed her house. She was always a ride or driver of ponies and horses. My Dad and her Dad were friends. I lived a couple miles from where she was raised in Jay County. Many memories of horse shows, chariot races, and harness races. Condolences to her husband, Sisters and family.
Always,
Barbara Lake.
