June 15, 1934 — March 30, 2023

Joan Temples Lewis, 88, of Batesburg, passed away Thursday, March 30, 2023, surrounded by family following a brief illness. She was born in Bartow, Georgia, a daughter of the late Johnnie Seibron Temples and Ruth Eskew Temples. Mrs. Joan graduated from Batesburg-Leesville High School where she was a star basketball player.

Mrs. Joan was married to her beloved husband Bobby for 53 years. She was an active member of First Baptist Church of Batesburg until Covid and then continued to worship faithfully at home.

Mrs. Joan is survived by her daughters, Debbie Moses (Steve), Tisa Lewis; son, John Lewis (Laurie); grandchildren, Courtney Quattlebaum Carreiro, Lindsey Quattlebaum Culley (Tim), Alex Moses (Mary Grace), Brittney Fulmer, Andy Longshore (Lindsay); great grandchildren, Rowan Lewis Carreiro, Harper Lewis Culley, Hudson Lewis Culley, Doug Fulmer, Carolyn Bradburn, Lainey Longshore, Evan Longshore; and family friend, Heather Ferguson.
