Nothing brought Mrs. Ewing more joy than her boys ~ her "baby" Greg, and the "little ones", Zachary and Alex. There wasn't anything she wouldn't do for them and she knew, no matter what, they were always there for her. They honor her every day in who they are and what is yet to come.

Mrs. Ewing was preceded in death by her step-son, David Lewis Ewing, step-daughter, Laura Lee Revere; and sister, Patricia Ann McMillan.
