Marlys's Story

Text size

Marlys Ann Lewis from Buckeye, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on January 13, 2018. She was born January 14, 1928 in Robbinsdale, Minnesota to her parents Frank and Minerva Seibert. With her master's degree in education, Marlys was an elementary and college level teacher for 28 years. Her kind, gentle, patient soul loved bringing knowledge to the youth. She also served the Lord as a missionary on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona and New Mexico. There she learned the language, raised her family, and exemplified the love of Christ to all. One of her God given talents was to play musical instruments. She played the piano at church for many years and also taught her children the art of music. She was also a passionate artist and her original paintings and hand written drawings grace the walls of her children and grandchildren's homes today. Marlys was a devoted mother to her children, Ross Woodruff Jr and Deborah Holcomb along with her son and daughter in laws, Mike Holcomb and Melanie Woodruff. She was a caring sister to Karen Holt and Sue Gibson, a loving grandma to her 14 grandchildren, Edward and Angie Perez, Shawn and Jenny Brown, Ross and Val Woodruff, Gregory Woodruff, Christina Woodruff, David and Gabriela Holcomb, Scott and Deidra Willard, Drew and Cynthia Holcomb and 10 great grandchildren. Marlys dearly loved Jesus and her family. She is now rejoicing with the Lord and reunited with loved ones who have gone before in the Lord. Until we see you again, we love you.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
