   Erin was a member of Glad Tidings Church in Decatur, Illinois and later the Crossing Church in Quincy.  She loved listening to the Christian Radio Music Station, and going to the car races to cheer on her favorite driver No. 24, Jeff Gordon. She enjoyed participating in all of the activities offered at the nursing home and cherished the time spent with her family and her son.  Erin thought everyday was special and will be remembered for her smile and inspiring those around her.

   Erin was employed at Walmart and Casey's as a cashier until having to retire due to ill health.

Lewis of Decatur, IL; a brother, Ryan McKee (Bobbie Jo) of Winchester, IL; a sister, Tonya McKee of Springfield, IL; paternal mother-in-law, Erma Lewis of Decatur, IL; one step brother, Todd East (Brandy) of Quincy, IL; a sister-in-law Debbie Thomas; and many loving nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.  

   Erin was preceded in death by her father; a sister, Hannah L. McKee; paternal grandparents, Robert and Mary McKee; maternal grandparents, Andrew and Darlene Schneider; and paternal father-in-law, Donald Lewis Sr.

   A Celebration of Life Service will be held Tuesday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. in the Crossing Church at 48th and Maine in Quincy, with Pastor Chris Schaefer officiating.

   Visitation will be at Tuesday afternoon at The Crossing from 2:00 p.m. until the time of service.  
   Inurnment will take place at St. John's Lutheran Church Cemetery in Decatur at a later date.

God has gained a very special Angel. Erin lived everyday to her fullest and no matter what was going on with her day or ours we would always leave the room with a smile. Her smile was so contagious! Julitta, Erin was very blessed to have you as her mom. Always by her side! It is obvious where Erin got her smile and sense of humor from. I have never seen two people who smiled or loved like you an Erin. Thank you for becoming a part of our Sycamore family you both are an inspiration to us all and will be forever in our hearts.
