She is survived by her brother, Billy Lewis; daughters, Pam Powers, Deborah (Charlie) Whitefield, Judy (Victor) Mello; son Vaiden Martin; grandchildren, Frank (Kayla) Burrell, Jessica (Chris) Bibler and Kelsey Whitefield; great-grandchildren, Alex, Peyton, Max, Cole, Adalyn and Logan; great-great-grandchildren, Dawson, Oakley and Lyric; and some very special nieces and nephews. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Vaiden; granddaughter, Jennifer; and brother J.B. Lewis.

Ada loved her family and always welcomed anyone into her home. Her greatest joy was the untold number of people that gathered around her table for just coffee, cake and conversation, or the huge holiday feast she prepared for so many years. She had a wonderful sense of humor. Her unconditional love for her family and friends will be forever missed.

The Rev. Mitch Cochran and the Rev. Dwight Sibley will officiate.
Pallbearers are Russell Lewis, Bill Lewis, Ronnie Lewis, Chris Bibler, Jerry Seale and Butch Hammack.
