Darul Sukoon Facebook page paid tribute to Sister Lewis. The organization wrote: “All our Children Nuns and Staff are heartbroken, as we have lost a huge part of us.

Please pray for the children to whom she has been a mother, for the nuns for whom she was a sister and a true inspiration, and for all the Staff who love her.”
