Linda Owensby Lewis, 86, of Marion, passed away Sunday, March 3, 2024 at Autumn Care of Marion.


She was born in Marion on December 6, 1937 to the late John Harold Robinette and Sallie Owensby Robinette.


Linda was employed for many years at Collins & Aikman as an inspector. She later joined her late husband and son as co-owner of Carolina Chocolatiers.

She is survived by one son, Michael Lewis and wife Miranda; two grandchildren, Sara Lewis and Michael Lewis; and seven siblings, Nadean Penland, John Robinette, Joe Robinette, Jewel Robinette, Jimmy Robinette, Jerry Robinette, and Angel Robinette.
