A mother of four, a caregiver to many, a foster parent and a volunteer. Those are just a few of the traits that make up this year’s recipient of the mother of the year award, Edith Rose Stewart-Lewis.
Lewis, 87, received the award during the Owen County 4-H Fair and Horse Show July 14.
“I’m grateful to have this happen,” Lewis said. “It’s almost unbelievable at my age to even get it.”
Although the award is usually a surprise to the recipient, Lewis said she knew she would be receiving the award.
