Before his untimely passing, Jerry Lee Lewis, an American singer, songwriter, and pianist, was living a comfortable married life with his wife, Judith Brown. When they were both attending one of Lewis’s shows in Los Angeles, they finally ran into one other. Brown was 25 years old at the time, and she was engaging in a love relationship with her ex-husband, who was also the singer’s cousin, Rusty.

But despite the fact that they were romantically involved, Lewis couldn’t help but glance across at Rusty, who was also in attendance at the performance, and assure him that he would marry Brown in the event that he did not. Nevertheless, after the performance, the singer and Rusty’s girlfriend did not run into each other for a considerable amount of time and distance.

During that time frame, Lewis completed the task of tying the knot many times. His sixth marriage, which he entered into with Kerrie McCarver in 1985, ended in divorce twenty years later in 2005. After experiencing yet another unsuccessful marriage, Lewis continued to live a single life for some time until running across Brown once again in the year 2010.

In the same year, the pianist struggled with major health concerns and was ultimately compelled to employ Brown as his carer. The passage of time brought the couple even closer to one another, which resulted in a deeper sense of attachment to one another. After that, Lewis and Brown began dating exactly six months after their second encounter with one another.

The revelation that Brown was also Lewis’s partner came as a surprise to everyone, since most people had only considered Brown to be his carer. Despite this, the two had developed a strong fondness for one another behind the scenes.

On Christmas Day, December 25, 2010, the singer made the decision to take his relationship with Brown to the next level by surprising her with a gift that he hid beneath the Christmas tree. The following is what Lewis’s caregiver shared with The Sun (about Lewis):

“He presented me with a ring for Christmas, but it wasn’t until a few months later that he revealed that it was an engagement ring. He just finished telling her, “I want to let you know that the ring I gave you for Christmas was a vow that I would marry you,” and she was completely taken aback.”

After the couple became engaged, Lewis made the proposal that he and his girlfriend should be married in Ferriday, Mississippi, in March of 2012, and his girlfriend accepted the proposal. On that particular day, the pair exchanged their wedding vows in a low-key ceremony in the presence of their immediate families and a few close friends.

Brown said that from the moment they took their seats in the pastor’s office, everything seemed to fall into place as if it had been predetermined. According to her, neither she nor Lewis had the impression that they had been married before, and it seemed as if it was the first time that they had exchanged wedding vows.

Brown said to Rusty that she didn’t take Lewis’s words seriously when he first met them and told her that he would marry her. At the time, they had just met. In spite of this, the fact that they finally did end up together was nearly unfathomable after so many years had passed.

The marriage of Jerry Lewis to Brown was the cause of a rift in his relationship with his family.

Without a question, Lewis and Brown were overjoyed at the prospect of spending the rest of their lives together. However, the singer’s family, particularly the singer’s ex-wife Myra Gale, became estranged from him as a result of his relationship with his current partner. Not only was Myra once married to Lewis, but she was also his cousin.

When she and the singer finally decided to be married, she was just 13 years old. After bringing into the world two children, the couple’s relationship was doomed to fail in 1970 when it was revealed that Lewis had married his cousin when she was only 13 years old, which was disastrous to Lewis’s profession.

After they finalized their divorce, everything seemed to be heading in the right direction until Lewis made the decision to marry Brown. It is essential to take into account the fact that Myra’s brother, Rusty, was also Brown’s ex-husband. Because of this, things became worse between Lewis and Myra as a result of the problems that surrounded their relationship.

In an Instagram post from 2015, the latter said that even after she and the singer had separated, they continued to communicate because of their daughter Phoebe. The post was published by the later.

Phoebe reportedly had a job with the entertainment legend, and Myra said that whenever Phoebe went to see her daughter, she would also run across Lewis. However, everything changed once the singer tied the knot with Brown, who had not yet moved on from her relationship with Rusty when she started dating Lewis.

Phoebe had stopped working for her father when Myra and Phoebe were married, as was reported by Myra. As a direct consequence of this, Myra terminated her relationship with Lewis and finally eliminated him from her life. After that, she said that she was able to find serenity and tranquillity in her life now that Lewis was no longer a part of it.

Myra’s autobiography, “The Spark That Survived,” was published the year after her divorce from Lewis. In it, she describes the challenging situations she faced throughout her marriage to Lewis and how she overcame them. Myra, while discussing the difficulties that are described in her book, said (as reported by the LA Times):

“I did not only make it through it. Having been through that has made me a stronger person. I have become more resilient and appreciate many aspects of life that the majority of people take for granted. I suppose you could say it was like putting me through the ringer. You emerge victorious from the crucible; you prevail.”

Fears regarding the Afterlife are Something That Jerry Lewis Also Has

In an interview with the Guardian that took place in 2015, Lewis discussed the concerns he had about life after passing. The musician said that for a very long time, he was plagued by the uncertainty of whether or not he would go to paradise when he passed away.

Lewis said that he had done all in his power to live a virtuous life. However, he would find himself thinking about it every time he was on the verge of falling asleep.

On the other hand, although Lewis was concerned about where he would end up after passing, Brown was given the assurance that her husband would go to paradise. She reassured Lewis that his disobedient behavior was pardoned and that there was no need for him to be concerned about anything.

After an interview with the publication a few years earlier, Lewis ultimately passed away on October 28, 2022, at the age of 87, at his residence in Desoto County, Mississippi.

Brown, who was at her husband’s side when he passed away, claimed in a press release announcing the singer’s passing that Lewis was not frightened to passed away in his last days. Brown was there when Lewis passed away.

Brown claims that the pianist expressed excitement at the prospect of spending eternity with Jesus. In spite of the fact that he was nearing the end of his life, Jerry Lee Lewis never lost his trademark grin or his rock-and-roll sprit. His family, friends, and the people that he influenced will all mourn the legend very much after his passing. I pray that God would grant him eternal rest.
