Barbara Jean Lewandowski

April 17, 1943 — April 29, 2024

Gloucester, Virginia

Barbara Lewandowski, age 81, of Mathews Virginia, passed away peacefully on Monday, April 29, 2024 at Heron Cove 2 in Gloucester, Virginia surrounded by her family. She was preceded in death by her husband Alan Lewandowski. She was a resident of Mathews for over 33 years. Barbara was born in Detroit Michigan. Barbara was an avid quilter and member of several local quilting guilds. She enjoyed quilting tours overseas to England, Ireland, France, and Russia. Barbara was also a very talented painter in both oil and watercolors.  She was an avid cat lover and was adopted by a local cat named Smokey who was unknowingly co-owned by several other residents in Mathews. She later rescued a special kitten named Punkin who became her sidekick for nearly 20 years. Barbara was an incredible cook, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, wife, and friend to many!

Barbara was known to all for her sparkling personality, good mood, big smile, laugh, and her great sense of humor. 


Barbara is survived by her children Cliff and David Lewandowski: her two grandchildren, Bryce Lewandowski and Blake Pepper: her great grandchild, Danica as well as her brothers Mike, Brian, and John Hlavaty.


Our family would like to send a special thanks to the staff members at Heron Cove 2 for the loving and attentive care they provided for our mother over the years.
