Ms Nannie Omega “Miggie” Lewis passed away on Tuesday, December 26, 2017, at the Select Specialty Hospital in Augusta, Georgia. For many years she sang with her sisters, brother, and parents as the Lewis Family, perhaps the most beloved bluegrass Gospel group of all time.

The old maid of the family, Miggie was a favorite of everyone in the family and with fans everywhere.
