Barbara Jean Lewis-Olsen
Date of Passing:
Barbara Jean Lewis-Olsen, 61, passed away on July 30th, 2021, with her two loving children by her side. Barbara was raised in Riverside, and spent much of her adult life living in Chepachet, returning to East Providence in her later years.
She leaves behind her two children, Jennifer and Thomas, as well as countless other family members and lifelong friends who will miss her dearly. Barbara never met a stranger, and dozens of people referred to her simply as Auntie. She devoted her life to two things: raising her children, and supporting the New England Patriots. A talented stained glass artist, her creations decorate the homes of many who loved her.
Calling hours are Saturday August 7th from 2pm to 4pm at the W. Raymond Watson Funeral Home in Riverside. In lieu of flowers, please consider planting something in your own garden to honor Barbara’s love of gardening.
