Virginia 'Ginny' Mae (Hutto) Lewis

June 17, 1921 - June 2, 2014

Virginia “Ginny” Mae (Hutto) Lewis, 92, Peabody Retirement Community of North Manchester and formerly of rural Macy, Sharpsville and Windfall, died at 5:28 p.m. Monday, June 2, 2014, at Peabody Retirement Community. She was born June 17, 1921, in Kokomo, to Ray Lindsay and Iva May (Galbreath) Hutto. She was married Aug. 8, 1944, at the Methodist Church in Windfall to Orville R. “Dick” Lewis, who preceded her in death Dec. 6, 2010.

She was a fine artist (in her own words – she dreamed of being a ballerina until she discovered fine art, then art was her main love in work or pleasure for the rest of her life), she won many honors in juried art fairs and events. Ginny was proud to be a meteorologist at Weir Cook Airport during World War II, later she was a homemaker, a mother, an interior designer, a teacher, a farmer and gardener as well as a genealogist who loved her husband with all her heart and worked alongside him for more than 66 years. She said she “hated” to cook, but she was a gourmet in all her attempts and many a “Ginny Lewis recipe” has been handed down to family and friends. She dearly loved Bible study and theological discussions with her family, as well.

She was a graduate of Wood High School (Windfall), graduated from Layton School of Art (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) and she then attended the School of Art at Indiana University in Bloomington until World War II began. Ginny was a lifetime member of the Methodist Church, active in the Sharpsville Methodist Church, the Windfall Methodist Church and later The United Methodist Church of Windfall. For many years Ginny was a leader there in the WSCS (UMW) and Vashti Circle. When relocated to northern Indiana, she was chosen as the music director of Emanuel UMC, Roann, a task she loved. She also loved entertaining the family with piano and organ music at home. She was a member of PerryDoRites Home Economic Club of Miami County, where she held several offices and served as president. As well as being active in the Order of the Eastern Star, Kappa Delta Phi Sorority, and the Business and Professional Women’s (BPW) Foundation, she was a leader for Girl Scouts and Brownies and a den mother for Cub Scouts and a leader in the PTA when her children were young.
