Marjorie Ann Cameron Lewis King

Marjorie Ann Cameron Lewis King, 82, of Russellville, passed away April 2 at Helen Keller Hospital.

Mrs. Marjorie worked for more than 30 years at a seamstress at Lawrence Corporation, ABC Industries, HD Lee and a couple of other smaller sewing plants. She was a tough lady, a fighter who overcame a lot of adversity in her life, a loving mother to seven kids and, most importantly, a devoted Christian lady. She taught Sunday School for years in the Baptist Church.

She was a songbird who loved to sing solos or lead the choir. She taught herself how to play several instruments, including the accordion, and loved to do artwork. She loved her children, but her grandbabies and her great-grandbabies were her sweet babies that meant the world to her.

She leaves many wonderful memories for her family to cherish.

She was preceded in death by her husbands, Buford H. Lewis and Hershel King; great-granddaughter, Emily Grace King; parents, William Roy and Lizzie Irene (Patrick) Cameron; brother, William Roy “Buddy” Cameron Jr.; and several nieces and nephews.

She leaves to cherish her memory her children, Pamela Joyce Pugh (Greg), Buford Dale Lewis (Caroline), Ronald Kelly Lewis (Janna), Brian Keith Lewis, William Daniel Lewis, Mark Christopher Lewis (Tabitha) and Mary Christy Calhoun (Ramey); daughter-in-law, Phillis Lewis Mayfield; 11 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and a niece, Lisa Jenkins (Sam).

The visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. April 4 at Spry Memorial Chapel. The funeral will be at 10 a.m. April 5 at Spry Memorial Chapel. Speaking at the funeral will be Bro. Steve Amos and Bro. Mark Daniel.

Burial will be at Macedonia Cemetery, Russellville.

The pallbearers will be Mason Soeder, Corbin Hall, Bart Lewis, Shayden Romans, Dustin Lewis and Patrick Lewis.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the nurses and staff of Arabella Nursing & Rehab for your love and care of our mother and grandmother.
