Lisa Jones Vail, age 59, of Cabot closed her eyes for the last time in this life and opened her eyes in the presence of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, October 16, 2021.
Lisa is survived by her loving husband, Gary; Mother Valinda Jones; Sister Carrie Jones (Marty), her Fur baby- MAX, Bonus Sister Gina Myers-Gunderman, Numerous uncles, Aunts, Cousins, and her extended family on Epperson Drive.
Lisa is preceded in Death by her Father Jimmy Jones, Grandparents, John & Inez Whittle, Eula Ingram and Clarence Jones.
Lisa was a 1980 Graduate of Cabot High School. She worked for many years in the administration side of the dental field until her health prevented her from continuing to work, she then spent her days caring for her mother. Lisa loved to spend time traveling and camping with Gary. Lisa was always a force to be reckoned with, she lit up a room when she entered it. She was quick witted and had an infectious laugh. Lisa was always willing to show up and help when you needed her. If you knew Lisa well-you knew it was always her way. Before you knew it, she had you doing exactly what she wanted… A born leader you might say! She had several unique talents like coming up with her own words to songs and swearing she was right, getting her fingers stuck in small spaces (it’s a wonder she still has all of them) and the ability to turn a short 2-hour trip into a 5-hour drive.
Lisa would want us all to remember her with laughter not tears, she always made those around her laugh and in this world, we need more laughter. Her life was worthwhile, she had made many, many people smile over the years and has touched many lives.
Lisa’s legacy of kindness, compassion, love and laughter will live on through those who were apart of her life. Gary, Carrie and Valinda request that instead of sending food or flowers, that you be a blessing to someone who is struggling. Be the light in someone’s darkness as Lisa was to many and help those whose calling is to help others. Memorials can be made in Lisa’s honor to your local Food Bank or Humane Society.
Services are under the trusted direction of A Natural State Funeral Service and will be held in the Chapel on Thursday, October 21, 2021 with a gathering of friends and family beginning at 3 PM and a Celebration of Life Service at 4 PM.
