Phyllis Greene Lewis

June 8, 1943 — May 27, 2023


Phyllis Greene Lewis, of Newport, passed away at home on Saturday, May 27th, 2023. She was 2 weeks shy of her 80th birthday.

Phyllis was born in New Bern, NC to Sudie Nixon and Sandy Greene. She was married for over 40 years to her husband Hubert Lewis, until he left this world in 2007.

She was a proud Grandmother, Mother, and faithful member of First Apostolic of Morehead. She loved to crochet, garden, exercise, and most of all THRIFT SHOP!  Her dream was to go on one last cruise and plane ride before she departed from this earth.
