Margaret Lewis

May 28, 1922 — July 11, 2014

Margaret Lewis passed away peacefully on July 11, 2014, after a lengthy illness. She was a resident of Solano County for 60 years, having moved to Suisun Valley from San Fernando Valley in 1954 and then to Fairfield in 1972.

Margaret Beeson Lewis grew up in Santa Ana, Calif. She attended junior college there, then received her teaching credential from Santa Barbara State College, with a bachelor’s degree in home economics.

She married Lloyd Lewis in June, 1942 and they resided in Southern California before moving north to Suisun Valley, where they enjoyed fruit ranching and teaching. Margaret taught junior high school in Napa before serving as chairwoman for the home economics department at Fairfield High School. She was a member of Suisun Valley Farm Bureau, Retired Teachers, Daughters of the American Revolution, Colonial Dames, UDC, UMW, University Society, and Monday Morning Breakfast group.

Margaret is survived by daughters, Carole, Linda and Beverly; grandchildren, Gregory, Teresa, Rowan and Robin; along with several nieces, nephews and many friends.

Her husband of over 50 years predeceased her in January 1993.

At her request, there will be no memorial service. Instead, she would like people to spend time with family and friends, or helping someone in need.

Donations may be made in her name to Meals on Wheels, where Margaret volunteered for many years, or to a charity of your choice.

Her goal was “Try to leave the world a little better than the way you found it.” She was an inspiration to all who knew her and she will be missed.

    Margaret was such a sweet, lovely lady and her smiling face will be deeply missed at our Chief Solano Chapter,DAR, monthly meetings. My mom, Pat McKnight, has known Margaret for years and has many fond memories of them being active in the Chapter and sharing rich and wonderful times together. I have only known Margaret for the last 7 years but will always remember her kind, encouraging, sweet personality. Always greeting you with her genuine smile. You will be deeply missed dear Margaret but know that you will never be forgotten. Blessings to Margaret's family - may you grieving be short and the memories of Margaret be long. We will always be celebrating her life! Sincerely, Nanette McKnight Shamieh and Patricia McKnight Chief Solano Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution

    I became acquainted with Margaret through the Fairfield Senior Center Day Trip program. She was such a pleasant passenger on our vans and I loved to hear her laugh at other passengers jokes/comments. At some point Margaret started needing her daughter, Carol, to accompany her on the trips for which she had signed up and thus I became acquainted with Carol. Carol, I will miss your moms wonderful outlook on life. My deepest sympathy is extended to you, yours sisters and other family members.
