NANCY CHARLES FISHER LEWIS

ANDERSON, MO. — Nancy Charles Fisher Lewis, age 82, of Anderson, Mo., passed away at her home on Monday, Dec. 17, 2012, with her loving husband by her side.

Nancy was born Sept. 17, 1930, in South Bend, Ind., to the late James and Helen (McFarren) Charles.

She married Paul Lewis on Dec. 13, 1997, at Granbury. She graduated from Marion High School in Marion, Indiana in 1948, and was chosen to be the Easter parade queen. Nancy graduated from Indiana University in 1952, with a B.S. in education. She had a career as an educator for 45 years. She taught students from kindergarten to the college level. She earned her first of three master's degrees in special education. She was about to complete her Ph.D when she had the opportunity to become principal of the elementary campus in Glen Rose.

Nancy worked closely with Tarleton State University and her elementary school was selected to be one of the mentor schools for the state of Texas.  She retired in 1997, as a special education teacher, an elementary teacher, a diagnostician, an early childhood teacher and as an administrator.  Nancy touched the lives of many and her love for children was a driving force throughout her life.

Nancy is survived by her loving husband, Paul Lewis, of the home; her son, David Fisher and wife Michelle of Glen Rose, Texas; a sister, Phyllis Rinehart and husband Don of Brandon, Miss.; two grandchildren, Tiffany Fisher Brooks and Hunter Fisher; a stepson, Philip Lewis of Denver, Colo.; two step-grandchildren, Jeffery Lewis and Cari Lewis, both of Oklahoma City; cousins, Billy Charles and wife Niki of Marion, Ind., Sarah Davis and husband Tim of Indianapolis, Ind., and Helen Leonard of San Jose, Calif.; along with a host of other family, friends and neighbors who will dearly miss Nancy.

Visitation will be held from 12:30 p.m. until service time at the Anderson Chapel of the Ozark Funeral Homes, when the family will receive friends at this time.
