Patricia Ann Lewis passed away Tuesday, November 19, at Beehive Homes Assisted Living in Moorhead MN. She was born on April 29, 1940, in Oakes ND to Edwin and Eliza Long. She grew up and graduated high school in Verona ND.

She attended Nursing School in Wahpeton ND and graduated as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). She moved to Moorhead MN where she worked as an LPN at St. Ansgar’s Hospital for many years. She also worked at St. John’s Hospital in Fargo ND. When she learned about Hospice of the Red River Valley in the early ’80s, she knew she had found her life’s true calling and she spent the remaining years of her nursing career providing end of life care to patients and families throughout Cass and Clay counties.

Patricia married Ron Lewis (Dilworth MN) in 1969. They lived in Moorhead until moving to Frazee MN in 1995. After Ron passed away in 2008, she got her beloved Pomeranian (Gizmo), who was her faithful companion until her last days.
