We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Salyer Funeral Home
Ann Yvonne Lewis, 85, of Chincoteague Island, VA passed away on Sunday, February 6th, 2022, at Shore Health and Rehabilitation Center in Parksley, Va.
Yvonne was born on the island on January 8th, 1937, to the late John and Mary Lewis.
She began her working career as an Avon sales representative but when Bill Salyer told her of a new doctor coming to town that needed an office manager, Yvonne applied, was hired and ran the day-to-day operations for 48 years. That doctor was Donald J. Amrien. She never called him anything but “the doctor” and you didn’t see the doctor until you went through Yvonne.
In her spare time, Yvonne taught Weight Watchers and maintained her membership at Union Baptist Church.
Yvonne is survived by her loving and dedicated daughter, Vicky R. Tull of Chincoteague Island; Step-son, Martin Lewis, Jr and his wife Corrina of Ohio; one step-grandson of Ohio and cousins, Bobby Umphlett and his wife Nancy, Audrey Justice and Joyce Reed all of Chincoteague Island.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Martin Lewis, Sr.
Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, February 9th, 2022, at 2:00pm at Union Baptist Church on Chincoteague Island with Rev. Kevin Eley officiating.
Interment will take place at the John W. Taylor Memorial Cemetery in Temperanceville, VA.
Flowers accepted or donations may be made to the charity of one’s choice.
