Lilly, finished her life on earth and entered the "place" she called "Paradise". My sister, Peg, was with her.
We were greatly blessed by her loving, companioning presence. She was 94 years old on April 11. From her we gained wisdom and strength, and learned lasting lessons of loving compassion and faithfulness.

We are so thankful we were able to keep Mom in the house where she was born as, together, we made this long journey with her toward her Eternal Home.
We are grateful for the Hospice "angels", and all of you who supported us with prayers and compassionate presence along the way.

She married George Nicholas Alwon (1) Bethany Lutheran Church, Brooklyn, NY, on 27 March 1943. Initially, Mom and Pop got married here on the day they eloped. Later, they married in Our Lady of Lebanon Roman Catholic Church. She married George Thomas Lewis (17) Lake Tahoe, NE, on 26 June 1988.
Gloria was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Her mother, Angelle, was born in Egypt with Syrian roots. Her father, Badie, came to the US from Syria at age 16. He started out selling fruit, working in the restaurant business and then starting a linen and lace factory in China. He had to travel by train & boat for 23 days to get to China, where he lived for a few years.

After returning from China, Gloria’s father married her mother. Gloria was the oldest followed by 3 brothers. They had a good life in the Bay Ridge area of Brooklyn.

Shortly after graduation from high school, Gloria married a friend of her brother. She met George while being her brother’s “date” at a dance. She was 18 years and George was 19 when they married.

Gloria's marriage to George was not well taken by her family. Her dad, Badie thought that George was a Muslim and poor. Badie didn't want them to marry.

After the marriage, they eloped to Worcester and stayed with Jeannette and George Solomon. They escorted them to White City and held a party for the newly weds at their home.

Jeannette recalls that Mom called her mother Angelle. Angelle was happy with the marriage. We guess that Angelle made things smooth at home because shortly afterwards, George and Gloria moved in with her parents and that is where I was born.

Along with her 6 children she also helped her brother Floyd raise his children after his wife died. She took in 2 of her other brother Joe's kids during the summer!

All of Gloria’s children went to college. Her children now live in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Massachusetts, Texas and Colorado. Her daughter, Anita, died of lung cancer several years ago. Gloria has 6 grand children.

She had a stroke after having both hips replaced in the early 90’s. Gloria moved into Emerald Pond in 2001. She spends most of her days in her apartment with friends.

Gloria loved her husband, her children and her grandchildren a lot. They came before all else. As a tribute to her, the grandchildren often write wonderful letters and poems to her. Here is one by her granddaughter, Katie. The arrangement comes from ee cummings.

He graduated from Fort Hamilton High School where he was known for his baseball batting skills. He was captain of his baseball team and played on the football team. His favorite sports were baseball, football, bowling, golf, and of course, swimming. He never had the energy for work around the house but when his tee off time came around or going to the beach or pool he was always ready.
One of the biggest moments of his life was trying out for the Brooklyn Dodgers back in 1945. When his children asked what happened he would say he was able to hit the ball but could not run fast enough. He had the special ability to watch the game on TV, and at the same time, listen to several other games on the radio, and still be able to tell you what was happening in each game.
He was accepted to Georgetown College but decided to work for the family business with his dad and brothers. He met and married Florence Halvorsen on June 11, 1950 and raised 5 children. His oldest son was Bruce, then daughters, Barbara, Gail, Irene, and Nancy. Floyd has 8 grandchildren with a future grandson due this January. After becoming widowed in 1977 he met and married Gladys Helal Shelala on November 3, 1979 and gained 4 stepchildren and 7 more grandchildren. His family was very important to him and he loved them all dearly.
He was very active in the Masonic Order becoming a member of Damascus Lodge. He achieved Master Mason status and then became secretary for many years to follow. He also was active with the order of Eastern Star and Triangle girls.
Floyd worked hard all his life. He worked with his father, Badie, in quilting manufacturing. He finally retired and moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to enjoy the sun. There he spent many a day chitchatting with his fellow neighbors, playing cards with the guys, and floating on his noodle in the heated pool. His family and friends described him as a mild mannered man with great honesty and integrity. His children always realized how important he was in their lives but over the past few days, we have come to see how he touched the lives of others as well. He resided Brooklyn, NY.

When Kenny was born, Dad and Aunt Lady were at the movies, Jido and Taita were visiting the Jebailey's.

We were living on 10th Street at the time, but Mom wanted to be near the hospital. So, she and the family stayed at the Katen's on 79th Street.

In the early evening, Uncle Butch comes home. Remember, that he is a teenager at this time. He notices that Gloria is going to the bathroom a lot. He tells Gloria that maybe they should go to the hospital. But neither he nor she can drive.

So, Gloria calls for her parents at the Jebailey's. Ms. Jebailey had a few drinks and brushed Gloria off, telling her not to worry.

Here is a story from Dennis emailed on Oct 6, 2005 that I believe describes my brother:

"I just have to relate this story to you all. Today on my way home I noticed a particularly long line of cars, in both directions, at the stop light ahead. Three police cars with lights going-- uh oh an accident for sure. The police blocked off one side of the road so cars had to be directed around, this is what caused the delay. But I didn't see any accident. As I got closer I noticed a wire was down halfway across the road. Ah, a power line so they were calling the power company to move the wire. But.....I thought it didn't look like a power line. As I got closer here comes a fire truck. Three firemen jump out and get the cones to cordon off the area. Finally it was my turn to drive by. I looked at the police officer and said you do know that's only a telephone line???? He said "is that what it is"? I said yes-- would you like me to move it for you. He said that would be good cause he didn't touch wires. I jumped out grabbed the wire and threw it off the road. Everyone cheered and honked.... Three firemen, three cops and all it took was a little old electrician to save the day. I could not believe they were that incompetent.
