She ended her career as the office manager at JD Labels in Burleson. She grew up in Ft Worth and then lived in Burleson for 35 years before moving to Cleburne this year.
Lisa loved watching her grandkids in all their activities from soccer to volleyball to motocross to baseball and rodeo. It did not matter what it was as long as she was with her grandkids she was happy. In her last months she was happiest with her newest grandson who was 6 months old. They were all her pride and joy. Anyone who knew her knew this instantly. She also enjoyed being at the lake with family, the water park with the grandkids and she loved her Texas Rangers. Lisa had a smile as big as Texas that lit up any room she was in. She was always a happy and laughing person who loved life.
