Lillian LoNeva “Lonne” (Lewis) Kalus, 77, Glen Campbell, died Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2011, at her home.
She was born Jan. 15, 1934, in Clearfield, a daughter of the late Nelson O. and Frances L. (Yeager) Lewis.

Mrs. Kalus was a member of the Glen Campbell United Methodist Church, where she enjoyed music, playing piano and singing. She also enjoyed reading.
