Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new. II Corinthians 5:17. These words of scripture speak volumes about Patricia "Jean" Lewis Bynum, age 73 of Alexis who went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at her residence.

Jean was well known in her community and throughout the region for her involvement with Alexis Baptist Church, her 35 year career in Tupperware and most recently with her friends at Curves. Jean loved her children and grandchildren greatly.

Jean was the bride of the late Jerry Bynum for over 43 years. She is also preceded in death by one son, Rodney Bynum along with her father; James Franklin Lewis, Sr.
