Miggie was the oldest of eight children of Pop and Mom Lewis and although she never married or had children of her own, Miggie was never alone. Her parents lived with her until their passing. She was always surrounded by a great number of family members as well as thousands of Lewis Family fans. Miggie loved the music her family sang, loved spreading the ‘news’ to her family and friends, and staying an active part of their lives.
