Sandra Lee Lewis, 53 of Winooski, passed away suddenly from a long illness on Wednesday February 24th, 2016 in the home of her loving family. She was born on December 27, 1962 the daughter of Donald and Jennie Bushey of Burlington. She married her husband Richard W Lewis Sr on July 7, 1979 and was married for 36 amazing years. She is survived by her husband, her two remaining daughters, Tanya Crowley and Tina Lewis, her son Richard W Lewis Jr who had proceeded her in 2008, her son in law Adam Crowley, her two sisters Gail Babcock and Sherry Bushey, her brothers; Paul Bushey, Donald Bushey, Gary Bushey and Ricky Bushey, her grand daughter Brianna Lewis, her mother in law Mary Gardner and many nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends. Sandy was such a beautiful, loving, caring, thoughtful woman that truly brought a lot of joy to anyone that knew her. Her family meant everything to her. She struggled and suffered for many years from several medical problems but still continued to fight every day to be with her family. She had a smile that would always brighten up the room and she was such an inspiration to many who knew her.

Sandy was a loving wife and an amazing mother to three children of all who will miss her dearly. Before her sickness, she worked in retail and loved what she did. She was a hard working woman who never gave up. Her favorite thing to do was spending time and making memories with her husband and her two daughters. The glow on her face just showed how happy she was she was when she was with her girls. All who knew her knew how important her girls and her husband were to her. She loved being outside with the sunshine on her face and taking a ride with her husband in the country sides. She loved taking care of her cats who never left her side. She loved planting flowers and having them in her home but most importantly her roses. She loved her roses! She was such a caring woman who could brighten up anyone's day.

She is a beautiful soul that will never be forgotten by all that knew her. May she rest in peace with God as his new angel until we all meet again some day.
