Rita Lee McConnell Lewis


Rita Lee McConnell Lewis, 71, of Greenup, Kentucky went to be with the Lord on Wednesday November 28, 2018 after a long battle with Alzheimers at her residence surrounded by her loving family.

Mrs. Lewis was born February 23, 1947 in Howell, Michigan a daughter of the late Thomas “Tom” and Virginia “Louise” Gullett McConnell.
