Michelle Eva Garber Lewis passed away at home on Nov. 3 after a long and valiant fight with Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) cancer.
She is survived by her husband Craig Lewis, sons Sean and Matthew, sister Marsha Epstein along with many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and brothers and sisters-in law.
Michelle was predeceased by parents Sam and Esther Garber, siblings Yvette Shure, Sharon Halpern, and Stanley Garber.
Michelle was born and raised in Atlanta and attended the Hebrew Academy and then the University of Georgia where she met Craig, her husband of 30+ years.
After five years marriage, Michelle and Craig created the Atlanta Pet Resort from a little plot of land in Marietta, which they owned, operated, and loved for 25 years and sold in 2021.
Her proudest accomplishment was with her husband raising their two strong, caring, and amazing boys.
Michelle was the glue that kept and brought their family together from around the world. Her house was always open. “Michelle radiated positivity.” She had friends from all walks and stages of her life. From her American Class in Israel to the Mommies group, the Matthew’s mom group, the Sexy Six, and high school and college friends. Michelle never met a stranger and would make friends at the drop of a hat.
Michelle will be missed by those near and far for her “Sunshine,” and her fiery, intense, loving, caring and open heart.
Our world has dimmed since you left us, but I know your family will shine so much brighter now that you are with them.
Many thanks to her dear friends for the continued support of her family. Many thanks to WellStar Hospice for their care of Michelle on this last leg of her journey. Arrangements by Dressler’s, 770-451-4999 www.dresslerjewishfunerals.com.
