Delores Lewing

Delores “DeLo” Lewing was born December 4, 1935 and passed away peacefully at the age of 83 on July 13, 2019.

Services celebrating her full and joyous life will be held on July 20 at 2 p.m. at Alford Heights Baptist Church in Many with burial at Old Pisgah Cemetery following the service. Visitation will begin at 12 p.m. immediately prior to the service.

DeLo was born and raised in Belmont where she became known for her skill on the basketball court at Belmont High School. She later married Wayne Lewing and moved to Fisher where they raised their two daughters, Diane and Kim. DeLo was a kind and steadfast daughter, mother, sister, wife, grandmother, and a friend to all. If you made it out to her house, you could count on a full meal waiting on you, most of which would be lovingly fried, with a side of tea almost as sweet as her. DeLo was a faithful member of Alford Heights Baptist Church, and she loved spending time with her friends in the women’s group.
