The family will receive friends at the funeral home prior to the service beginning at 3:30 p.m. Lavada was the ‘feisty’ one of the family; she loved them dearly, especially her many nieces and nephews, and loved her cats and dogs as though they were people too.

She is survived by her sisters, Faye Bryson of Statesville, NC, and Charlotte Lewis of Cordele; her special friend, Eddi Corley of Statesboro; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, and her brothers, J.B. Lewis, Jr., Kelly Lewis, and James Howard Lewis. Arrangements are by Rainey Family Funeral Services.
