Judy Ann Lewis, 61, of Lewiston, Minn., died on Monday, January 28, 2019, at her home after a three-year cancer battle.
Judy was born on April 25, 1957, to Clarence and Janet Franke in Rochester, Minn. Judy was one of four children. She helped her mom out by babysitting her brothers on many occasions. Judy graduated from Dover-Eyota High School and attended the VoTech in Rochester. During this time, she met Mark Lewis through his brother, Paul. The two began dating and fell deeply in love.

The young couple then bought Pete’s Meats in Lewiston where Judy helped run the front counter and the books. Judy’s hobbies included collecting Barbies, cooking, crocheting and cross stitching.
