Blakely Joe Lewis Obituary
6/21/2011 ~ 3/26/2013
Our sweet, precious little girl was freed from Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and RSV while being held in her Mommy's arms early Tuesday morning. She is now playing freely amongst the Heavens.
Blakely was such a blessing in our lives and to all who had the chance to share her with us. Her strength, determination, and courage have brought hope and optimism to so many around her.
Blakely loved watching Disney movies, especially Tangled and the TinkerBell series, also anything on TV with Mommy and Daddy (even soccer), she loved the outdoors and would often squeal with delight when we asked if she wanted to go outside or take a walk. She loved taking baths and car rides, shopping, doing crafts with Mommy, helping Mommy and Daddy make dinner, swimming in her little pool, hanging out with her cousins, watching birdies from Daddy's desk and watching her "sisters" Molly and Denver play, petting Pumpkin her favorite kitty and having her "big girl" comforter pulled over her for nite-nite. But her most favorite thing of all was to be held in the arms of her Mommy, whether it was being read to before bed or walking around the yard looking at flowers. Some of her adventures included: going to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone National Park, Daniel's Summit Lodge, the Hogle Zoo, the Museum of Natural History, a private showing of Wreck-It-Ralph, visiting the Shark Reef in Las Vegas, driving on HWY 101 along the coast of Central California, stopping along the way to walk around Solvang and the Santa Barbara wharf.
We have so many incredible memories of this little princess, who has changed our lives forever.
We would like to give sincere thanks to the many people that made a huge impact on Blakely and our lives: the staff at Primary Children's, especially her RT's Kaylee, Tanner, Sandrelle and Michelle who fought so valiantly to keep her here with us; her nurses; the Rainbow Kids Team; Dr. Swoboda and the SMA team; her pediatrician Dr. Baranko; our therapist Leah Jaramillo, who helped us grow immensely as a family; Weber/Morgan Early Intervention Program, specifically her OT Theresa, who she loved to play with and her PT Lisa for helping us get many of the things that made life easier for us; the thoughtful staff at the Ogden Main Branch of America First Credit Union and the South Ogden City Fire Dept.
Blakely is survived by her Mommy and Daddy, Janell and Elliot; her Great Grandma Bitner, her Great Grandma and Grandpa Milne, and her Great Grandma Thompson; her Grandparents Greg and Barbi Milne, Sally Lewis, and Chuck Lewis and Iran Lavasani; her Aunt Jaquelyn and Uncle Aaron Miller (Emma, Anna, Sara, Megan, and Madilyn), Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Duane Bickmore (Samantha, Sydney, Sari, and Hunter), and Uncle Scott and Aunt Carla Lewis; and her adopted Uncle Troy Thompsen.
In lieu of flowers please make charitable contributions in remembrance of Blakely to the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, theGSF.org, which instilled our NEVER GIVE UP motto; Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, FSMA.org; or to the Blakely Joe Lewis Memorial Fund at any America First Credit Union.
