Lonie “Atilana” Lewis

October 5, 1942 — January 2, 2022

Gurnee, Illinois

Lonie “Atilana” Lewis, 79, of Gurnee, Illinois, passed away on Tuesday, January 2, 2022 in Park Ridge.

She was born on October 5, 1942 in Leyte, Philippines to Sabina Dataylo & Narcisco Cangas.  Blessed with vast cooking skills, dressmaking ability and a strong sense of direction, she migrated to the United States in the mid 1970’s.

Throughout her life Lonie enjoyed a substantial amount of friendships mainly within the US Filipino migrant community which included entertaining, cooking, dancing, social gatherings and most importantly group prayers.  Usually the loudest in the room, her colorful & outgoing personality touched almost everyone she encountered.  Fashionable and fierce, some would endearlingly say she was a “spitfire”.

Lonie is survived by her children, Melchor, Rolondo, Luzviminda, Harold, and Lisa; her 17 grandchildren; her 13 great-grandchildren; and her siblings, Willy, Linda and Tarcela.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Bruce; several brothers and sisters.

At the request of the family, services at this time will be private, with a memorial at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation in Lonie Lewis’ name to:

KIDNEYFUND.ORG (American Kidney Fund) or
