NORTHEAST HARBOR – Barbara Bel Geddes Lewis, 82, passed away peacefully Aug. 8, 2005, at her home in Northeast Harbor. She was born Oct. 31, 1922, in New York City to Industrial Designer Norman Bel Geddes and Helen Belle Sneider Geddes. While in her teens, Barbara began an acting career on the Broadway stage that would soon bring her vitality and creative spirit to the world. Many joyful years were spent with her beloved husband, Windsor Lewis, at “The Farm,” their home in Putnam Valley, New York. It was there that she shared her great love for all creatures of the earth with her daughters, surrounded by her precious dogs, geese, and birds. Barbara’s refined sense of color and design manifested itself in her wonderful paintings and drawings. She was the creator of two books for children and a popular line of greeting cards. After more than a decade of television appearances, Barbara discovered the endless joys of living life in Northeast Harbor. It was here that she savored the tranquil beauty of her surroundings with her many dear friends. She will be deeply missed by her daughters, Susan and Betsy; five grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; her chipmunks, birds, and squirrels. Gifts in her memory may be made to the World Wildlife Fund, 1250 24th St., NW, Washington, DC 20037. At Barbara’s request her ashes will be scattered privately in her favorite place.
