Minnie Adline Smith Lewis
August 07, 1932 - April 09, 2021
Minnie S. Lewis was born in Arcola, Louisiana to the late Martina Denoms and Robert Smith Sr., on August 7, 1932.
Minnie attended Mount Cannon School and Church where she was encouraged to join and serve the Lord.
She was the second oldest girl of eight and mischievous of all of her siblings. She loved to play jokes on all of them (young or old). No one was safe from her pranks. She leaves behind her baby sister, Carrie Caldwell (Bird) and brother, Randell Smith to remind us of all of the pranks and also her caring nature.
Preceding her and meeting her at Heaven's Gates are: Cleotha Lewis (Spouse); her siblings; William Smith, Willetta Vernon, Milton Smith, Charles Smith, Robert Smith Jr., Woodroe Smith and Joyce Smith and a son; Havon Lewis.
Minnie Lewis participated in the Eastern Star in 1967. Although, she wasn't an active member, we still remember the crisp white attire that she wore and her beautiful smile she portraited when she was with all the members.
She was also a CNA for over forty plus years. Most of her career was at Charity Hospital of New Orleans and Lafon Nursing Home. She was also a caregiver. Minnie loved her work and her patients. She would even take them fishing on any given day. This would be their outing and exercise for that day and it brought much joy to their hearts. She made her job look easy as a Caregiver.
To cherish her memories, Minnie Leaves behind: her children; Attie Brooks, Esther Trotter, Charlie Lewis, Martena (Leroy JR) Williams, Cleo (Rodney Jr) London, Sondria Brown, Shirley Wicker, and Patricia Harris. Also abundantly blessed group of nieces, nephews, grands, great, great great, great great great grandchildren.
The Funeral Service will be at 10:00 AM on April 17, 2021 at Kingdom of God Church in Bogalusa, Louisiana.
