REGINA LEWIS' idea of a good time was to catch a play at the Walnut Street Theater, a concert or dance at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts or Robin Hood Dell, any venue that featured R&B and soul music - or reading her Bible at Bright Hope Baptist Church.

Regina had eclectic taste in the performing arts, from the down-home rhythms of the Philadelphia Sound to ballet. And she was a student of the Bible at the famous North Philadelphia church.

Regina Lewis, who worked 35 years at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in various supervisory and management positions, died Jan. 14 of complications of breast cancer at the age of 56.

"She was a warm, loving person," said her daughter, Kimberley Lewis. "She was a thoughtful, happy woman."

Regina was born in Philadelphia and graduated from William Penn High School in 1975. She also took courses at Jefferson University.

The former Regina Council was married to David B. Lewis.

Besides her husband and daughter, she is survived by four sisters, Dorothy Dandridge, Darlene Orr, Sharon Sanders and Cassandra "Yvette" Steward.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Donor Services, P.O. Box 650309, Dallas, Texas.
