Leona Sue Lewis passed away at home surrounded by family on May 28, 2024, after a battle with cancer. She was born in Medford, Oregon, on Feb. 5, 1956, to Warren Dick Harding and Lucille (Jansen) Harding. She moved with her family to Washington State as a child.

After a first marriage that produced two sons, Kole and Kane, Sue met and married Blaine Lewis in Ellensburg, WA. They moved to Redmond, WA and had another son together, Klayton.

Sue had a passionate faith in God. She and Blaine made the move to Messianic-Judaism and joyfully served that community as they studied the Jewish roots of Christianity. Sue loved caring for animals and children. She had a heart for others less fortunate. In the 1990s, Sue and Blaine joined the Ski Patrol at Snoqualmie Pass. She also worked for a time at Great Harvest Bread and at Eye Associates Northwest and for a number of years Sue owned and operated a business, Farm Friendly Pet Services but mostly enjoyed her role as mother, homemaker and home school educator. Sue was a good cook and hostess and liked to plan meals around holidays or special gatherings. She enjoyed traveling, especially their trips to Hawaii, Canada, the Midwest, New York, and England. She also liked relaxing at home with Blaine watching British TV. Romantic at heart, she loved daily, monthly and annual traditions.

In 2010, Sue and Blaine moved to Port Townsend. Later they bought a farm outside Quilcene where they farmed and raised goats, sheep, geese and chickens.

Survivors include her husband, Blaine Lewis, stepmother Julia Harding, mother-in-law Fran Lewis, siblings Allen, Angela, Steven and Brian; sons Kole (Teri), Kane (Lois) and Klayton (Lindsey) and grandchildren Kanyon, Kaden, Ephraim, Ezra, Ziva, Rivka, Tirzah and David.
