August 8, 1938 ~ September 7, 2017
Soelia Hope Talamantez Lewis, our beautiful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother has returned to the open arms of our Heavenly Father on Thursday, September 7, 2017, at Davis Hospital and Medical Center. She was born in Brackettville, Texas, on August 8, 1938.
She moved to Shelley, Idaho, when she was a child. As a teenager she met and married Terry Tyler. They moved to Kaysville, Utah, and had five children together and were later divorced. She then married William Keith Lewis (later deceased) and had one child.
Hope was a strong and amazing woman who loved her family with all her heart and soul. She raised six children on her own. As an adult, she went back to school and earned her High School Diploma from Davis High. Later, because of her love for children, she opened Hopes Daycare out of her home. She ran her daycare for over 25 years, where she positively impacted so many of those children's lives. To her grandchildren, she was known as the Pizza Grandma. She was a member of the LDS church. Hope loved life, loved everyone and had a way of making everyone feel special. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her.
She is survived by her three sons and three daughters: Debra Tuck of Kaysville, UT; Marty (Shirley) Tyler of Logan, UT; Jayne Tyler of Plano, IL; Sue (Lynn) Prestgard of Layton, UT; Kevin (Wendy) Tyler of Logan, UT; Billy (Jon) Lewis of Holladay, UT. She is also survived by her three brothers and one sister: Dick (Kim) Talamantez, Layton, UT; Yvonne (Murry) Pierce, Layton, UT; Roland Talamantez, Idaho Falls, ID; and Larry Talamantez, Idaho Falls, ID. She has 21 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, Babe and Mary Talamantez; her husband, William K. Lewis; her brothers: Bob, Homer, and Alfred; her sisters, Gloria and Josie; and her two grandsons, Michael and Phillip.
