Anna “Tinky” Lewis

Anna “Tinky” Lewis, born Dec. 13, 1950 to Gilbert and Lucy Ruiz, entered into eternal rest on Dec. 11, 2021, one week after her father Gilbert entered into eternal rest.

Tinky was a graduate of Globe High School. After graduation, she moved to Phoenix and attended Lamson Business College. Upon graduation, she began working for Valle Del Sol in Phoenix. After being in Phoenix for several years, she returned to Globe where she held many jobs, with the most recent being a Sergeant with the Arizona Department of Corrections, retiring after several years of employment.

Those who knew Tinky knew how special this lady was. She was one of a kind, the life of the party. She loved to tell jokes and often cracked up at her own jokes before she’d get to the punchline. She was always willing to lend a helping hand. She was always there for her family and friends no matter the situation. Tinky loved to be around other people, going places and meeting new people. She loved cooking for family and quilting with friends.

Tinky is survived by her husband Fred Lewis, her son Angel Rosalez, her brother Gilbert “Owen” Ruiz, her sisters Debra Moya, Laurie Ruiz and Lorraine (Ramon) Remos, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents Gilbert and Lucy Ruiz, and her son David Rosalez.

Visitation was held on Dec. 16, 2021 at Lamont Mortuary Chapel, with a graveside service to be held at a later date.
