In Loving Memory of Lenita L. Lewis
Lenita Bailey Lewis was born on December 29, 1957 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the seventh child of Carl and Marietta Bailey. She attended Indianapolis Public School #44 for elementary education and Shortridge High School. She professed a hope in Christ as a young adult and joined Greater Sheperd Church of Indianapolis. She was employed by Goodwill Industries and the Athletic Club of Indianapolis. She also worked in the healthcare industry.
Lenita was united in holy matrimony to James Lewis on October 27, 2012.
Her parents and one brother, Carl Bailey preceded her in death. During her Christian journey, Lenita joined Promise Land Christian Community Church and served faithfully under the Pastorate of Richard and Co-Pastor Kathy Willoughby. She was a current member of New Birth Family Life Worship Center and served as an Usher under the leadership of Pastor Sarah Barbour.
A loving wife, mother, sister and friend, she enjoyed spending time with family, crocheting, upholstery, church functions and learning and studying the Word of God. She never met a stranger who didn’t quickly become a friend. Her warm and friendly nature will be missed by those who knew and loved her.
Lenita Lewis departed this life on August 17, 2017, at the age of 59 years, 7 months and 19 days.
She leaves to cherish her memory: a loving and faithful husband, James Lewis; 2 daughters, Latiya Bailey Gill (William), Kiana Taylor, 1 son, Mark Taylor, 3 stepdaughters, Kataja Smith, Shanda Smith and Bianca Grant; 5 step-sons; Marvin Taylor Jr., James Taylor, Kevin Smith Jr., Alfontz Grant, Larry Grant and five sisters, Marietta Gurnell, Starice Bailey Fox, Geneva (James) Evans, Casita Bailey and Melinda Bailey; two brothers, Aaron (Janette) Bailey, and Gerald Lei (Sharon) Bailey; six grandchildren, Curtis Bailey, Ketashia Taylor, Corease Taylor, Asheona Taylor, Coreonte Taylor and Coreon Taylor and a host of other relatives and friends.
