LEWIS, Carolyn Ann Lander, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 6, 2013, with her family by her side, in Lansing, Michigan.
Carolyn was a proud member of the first graduating class of Bishop Donahue High School. As an active alumnus and former member of the Board of Directors, Carolyn’s commitment to the school’s legacy was evident not only by her time spent organizing events, but also by her having established an academic scholarship for current B.D.H.S. students.

She was very active in the church and had the pleasure of teaching religious education to hundreds of children in numerous dioceses throughout the Midwest.
