Congratulations to Marian Lewis!
Marian Lewis was born in 1923, making her a young at heart (soon-to-be) 92-year
old. She studied organ and church music at Westminster Choir College in
Princeton, NJ, graduating with the class of 1945. Marian gave piano lessons to
hundreds of eager students and had a major impact on the careers of many Slate
Belt musicians and music teachers. Many of her former students continue to
communicate with her to this day.
At the Faith United Presbyterian Church in Pen Argyl, she is an Elder, serves as their Organist, and sews with the Quilters. At Chandler Estates, she provides transportation for other seniors and is on the resident council overseeing programs. Marian is part of the welcoming committee as well. With her smile and unassuming nature, hers is usually the first friendly face seniors encounter.
In the midst of all that, she finds time to hold a monthly piano sing-along that is popular with the residents. Marian is also involved with My Brother’s Keeper that gathers every Wednesday at Hope UCC and transforms donated blankets and fabric into sleeping bags for the homeless.
In recognition of all these achievements, Marian was presented with the Northampton County Outstanding Senior Citizen Award on May 7, 2015. The Faith United Presbyterian Church of Pen Argyl’s congregation hosted a luncheon celebrating this honor after worship on May 3, 2015.
Well done, Marian…WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!
