Obituary for Jesuesa "Susie" Lewright

December 25, 1927 - February 18, 2018
Austin, Texas | Age 90


Jesuesa "Susie" Lewright, of Austin, Texas, walked into the arms of the Lord on Sunday morning after living a rich and vibrantly happy 90 years.

Susie was born on December 25, 1927 in Refugio County, Texas. She was small in stature, but a giant force in the lives of all who knew her. Susie married the love of her life, Jack Lloyd Lewright in Victoria, Texas on October 18, 1947. Susie lived a long and full life; she was loving, a natural nurturer, kind beyond words, open minded, forward thinking, non-judgmental and always the life of a party. Susie never knew a stranger and her home was always open to anyone in need. She enjoyed traveling, bingo and regular trips to any slot machine.

Her greatest joy in life was time spent with her parents, siblings, nieces, nephews and especially her role as a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Susie is preceded in death by her parents, Teodoro and Reymunda Santos Rodriguez (Silva): husband, Jack Lloyd Lewright; brothers, Gumecindo (Ruby), Teodoro, Jose (Rachel) and Antonio; brother-in-law, Rudolph Hernandez.

Susie is survived by her children, William Lewright (Tzadcan), Dr. Jack Lewright (Ginger), Terry Lewright, Rina Vasquez, Joe Lewright (Tami), Lora Estrada (Marty), and Michelle Lewright (Billie); sisters, Mrs. Teresa Hernandez, Mrs. Genevieve Martinez (Robert), Mrs. Micaela Aleman (Refugio), and Mrs. Toni Bocanegra (Robert); sister-in-law, Beatrice; 20 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who loved her dearly.

Honoring Susie and serving as Pallbearers will be her grandsons, William Lewright, Bryan Lewright, Brent Lewright, Michael Vasquez, Joseph Lewright, Jack Lewright, Janzen Lewright and Joshua Lewright.
