Mikel “Mikie” Ida Lewis, age 77 of Rehoboth Beach, DE, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Friday January 22. 2021, after a short battle with Covid Pneumonia. She was born on July 25, 1943 in Detroit MI, daughter of the late Wentworth Eugene (Budd) and Irene Frances (Cox) Beeman. Mikie attended The Ray Vogue School of Design in Chicago (now the Illinois School of Art) and her classmates were to be her lifelong friends. She had a flair for interior design and decorated her homes beautifully. Mikie had a quick and sassy wit, a great smile, and lit up any room she entered. She was known for her generous heart and was always the first to lend a hand. She will be sorely missed by all her friends and family. In addition to her parents, Mikie was preceded in death by her first husband, Peter Hunt Seaton; and her brother, Dr. Peter Wentworth Beeman.
