Barbara Ellen Hewitt Obituary
Hewitt, Barbara Ellen
Barbara Ellen Hewitt left this reality on August 6, 2016 at her home surrounded by her loved ones. Cancer took her body though she bravely battled it three times. She will be sadly missed by her husband John, 3 daughters and spouses, Lori Winn (Brent), Kelly De Rosa (Kevin), Cheri Sims (Geoff), 8 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Barbara was a practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu for over 25 years, sharing her gift with others. Barbara will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor, fun-filled parties, creative nature, beautiful singing voice and talent in whistling. Although her life was cut short she lived a full and fun life, after she retired from 23 very long years with the City of Mesa. She enjoyed her time volunteering for the Mesa Arts Center where she received the Volunteer of the Year Award in 2007. Barbara loved to travel, held game filled parties, laughed often and loved deeply. She taught her truth to those who welcomed it, which included that Anchor Man is the best movie of all time but Mama Mia has the best sound-track, and you are never too old to use crayons. Others may say that they had the best mother, wife or grandmother in the world but we were actually the ones that had her. Her body may no longer be with us but the wisdom she bestowed upon us will last for generations. She now enjoys time dancing, singing karaoke, organizing parties and watching over her loved ones. (This obit was approved by Barbara Hewitt) A celebration of her life will be held Saturday, August 13 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Oakwood Room at Sunland Village East located at 2615 S. Farnsworth Drive.
