 A dear and special lady, Virginia “Jenny” Gail Green Lewis, age 64, passed away peacefully at her home in Waynesville on Monday, November 13, 2023. She leaves behind a legacy of love, warmth, and cherished memories.

Jenny was born May 28, 1959 and was a lifelong resident of Haywood County, holding a deep and abiding love for where she was born and raised. She was a dedicated homemaker and a wonderful cook. Her delicious homemade peach cobbler was a favorite comfort food of relatives and friends. Jenny was a skilled crafter and her hands created many lovely items that were a testament to her artistic spirit. She also had a keen eye for finding treasures at local yard sales and her shopping trips always became fun adventures. Among her loves were the beauty of flowers and in her quieter moments Jenny enjoyed the simple pleasures of watching television, particularly the classic shows that held a special place in her heart.

 Above all, Mrs. Lewis was a woman of strong Christian faith who read her Bible and lived her life guided by the principles of love, kindness, and compassion.

We give thanks for the life of Virginia “Jenny” Green Lewis and we shall hold her precious memory forever in our hearts. 

 Jenny was preceded in death by her parents, William Thomas Green and Evalee Gay Hannah; a sister, Dicie Wells and an infant sister, Mary Jane Green ; her brothers, Randy Green and Thomas Green. 

Surviving are her niece, Sandy Green of Waynesville; a sister-in-law, Pamala Green of Waynesville; her best friend, Vanessa Haney of Waynesville; also her special dog, “Benji” and many friends.  

 To honor the request of Mrs. Lewis a private graveside service was held.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Lewis family.




Condolences from family and friends

I know you are not suffering or hurting any more but I sure miss you. Angel, "little one", sure misses you as much as I do. She looks for you every day. I miss our visits and each other's phone calls. I miss our laughs and our plans to go to all these places. This year I am gonna miss us going to eat our Thanksgiving meal, which was our tradition on holidays. Life is lonely without you. One day, my sweet friend, we will see each other again. Until then, enjoy that Heavenly beauty.
Vanessa Haney
I wish that I'd known. For a portion of my childhood I called this woman my mother. I have some fond childhood memories spent with extended family. This woman who was once married to my father, made a great effort to raise 2 little girls who belonged to another woman. That takes courage.
