ODESSA - Caroline Lewis (born Caroline Fay), a loving mother and long-time Odessa resident, died in her home on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at the age of 92.

Caroline was born on March 5, 1926 in Lake Charles, Louisiana and grew up in Parkersburg, West Virginia. A bright and involved student, she graduated as Valedictorian of Parkersburg High School in 1943 and attended Rice University, where she graduated in 1946. At Baylor Medical School, Caroline met Bob Lewis, whom she married a year before her 1951 graduation.
