Emily Louise Lewerenz, 18, of Weston, beloved daughter of Eric and Heidi Lewerenz, died in a tragic car accident on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
Set to graduate high school on May 24, Emily was unsure of her life’s next adventure, but was ready to embrace the unknown with both arms.
Emily was a gifted painter and writer, and enjoyed snowboarding, theater, and singing. Emi expressed her faith in the Lord Jesus in many ways. Actively involved at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church and Restoration Church, she was a leader, a hard worker, a confidant and caring soul.
Last year, Emi worked at Camp Forest Springs and served with the Compassion in Action Mission Team in Honduras. She enjoyed waitressing and planned to send a portion of her money to dig a well for those in need of clean water. Always willing to listen and offer a warm hug to siblings and friends, Emily was a loving daughter and incredible sister. She lit up a room wherever she went and will forever be remembered as a joy-giver and a light-bearer.
Emily is survived and celebrated by her parents; six siblings, Zachariah, Isabelle, Jeremiah, Miriam, Elliana, and Evangeline; grandparents, Fred and Connie Souba; grandfather, Jim Lewerenz; and aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends everywhere.
A funeral service will be at 12 p.m. on Friday, May 26, 2023 at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church, 6205 Alderson Street, Weston, with Rev. Lance Hoelscher and Rev. Jordan Balk officiating. Visitation will begin on Thursday, May 25 at 4:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the church and continue on Friday beginning at 10:00 a.m. until the time of service at the church.
