Frances Elizabeth “Boots” Keyes Lewis, 84, of Bedford passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, June 30, 2022 surrounded by her family. She was the wife of the late Harold Lewis. Born in Lynchburg on February 25, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Leslie and Evelyn Keyes. She was preceded in death by her two sons, Pete and Brad Lewis; one brother, Melvin Keyes; and one sister-in-love, Nancy Martin. She is survived by her daughter, Desiree Lewis (Stephanie) of Bedford; her grandchildren, Stuart Lewis (Wendi), Mathew Lewis (Kathryn), Cole Lewis and Courtney Lewis (Nick); four great grandchildren, Camden, Bryce, Mercy and Elizabeth Lewis; her brothers, Bobby (Jackie), Clinton (Janie), Sonny (Rose) and Billy (Michelle) Keyes; and a host of nieces, nephews and adopted kids and grandkids that loved her dearly. Frances was most proud of her children and grandchildren and loved them unconditionally. She loved spoiling her grandchildren more than anything. She loved her snacks, especially sharing them with her great grandchildren. Frances loved flowers and was a retired Kroger florist. She also loved fresh summer vegetables from the garden, shopping and antique stores and of course reading. Frances’ compassion, love, stubbornness and most of all her witty sense of humor will always be remembered by her family, friends and those she loved. As her nephew laughingly told her, Frances was as pure as the wind driven snow. A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Tuesday, July 5, 2022 at Burch-Messier Walnut Street Chapel, 1235 Walnut Street, Bedford with Rev. John Sines, Jr. officiating. Burial will follow in Virginia Memorial Park. Arrangements by Burch-Messier Funeral Home, Bedford, 540-586-7360
