Jayne M. Lewis, longtime resident of Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood, passed away peacefully in the early morning of Sunday September 5th. Jayne was born on September 6, 1945, in Springfield, Ohio, often joking that she was born in the South and had the accent to match. She would go on to attend Northwestern University (class of 1967) where she met many lifelong friends as a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. Prior to graduating Northwestern, she met her loving husband, then medical student Victor, and they shared nearly 50 years of marriage. Together, they had two children and pursued their shared passions of gourmet food and exotic travel. She was a consummate "hockey mom," traveling as far as Slovakia to watch her children play. In her spare time, Jayne was a member of several charity organizations including the women's board of the Lincoln Park Zoo and the now Lurie Children's Hospital. She also enjoyed playing tennis and tending her garden. She will be missed by both family and friends alike. Preceded in death by her husband Victor, her parents Harry and Naomi, and her brother Robert. She is survived by her sons Torrey (Carrie) and Michael (Elizabeth), and grandson Costner. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Jayne's memory to the Lincoln Park Zoo or Lurie Children's Hospital

MEMORIES & CONDOLENCES
Mike and Tory, I was saddened to learn of your parents´ recent deaths. I have fond memories of you boys playing hockey while growing up on Fullerton Avenue; of your dad smoking up the neighborhood with some blackened something or other on the grill; of your mom trying to keep everything and everyone in order and organized; and, of course, of Friendship, the dog. You all were very special and unique neighbors. I am sorry for your loss.
