Lisa's Story

Text size

Lisa Susan George, age 62, of Joplin, Mo., went home to her Heavenly Father on May 7, 2017 following an illness. She was born July 31, 1954, in Webb City, Mo., to Ralph Lee and Thelma Lee (Barton) Chrisman.
Lisa was employed at Freeman Health Systems as a Patient Service Coordinator for 10 years. She was an amazing giving woman and could always be seen with a smile on her face. One of her greatest joys in life were her grandkids, who she talked about every chance she got. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and was especially excited about celebrating 40 years with her husband.
She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother, one sister and two nephews.
Lisa married Jimmy George, the love of her life on August 8, 1977, in Carlsbad, N.M., and he survives.
She is also survived by one son, Rick McCarty and wife, Tabatha, Joplin; four grandsons, Zac, Eric, and Chandler McCarty and Hudson Coach; two granddaughters, Lisa Kay McCarty and Olivia Coke, all of Joplin; one brother, Charles Chrisman and wife, Martha, Seneca, Mo.; five sisters, George Ann Stockton and husband, Jim, Gayle Baker and husband, Billy, Donna Navarez and husband, Mario, and Vicky Jennings, all of Carlsbad, and Cathy Millard, State of Texas; her niece, Christy, who selflessly cared for and supported her during her strong fought battle with cancer. As well as numerous other nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family and friends.
Memorial graveside services will be 2:30 p.m. Friday, May 12, at Ozark Memorial Park Cemetery. The family will receive friends at Hedge-Lewis-Goodwin Funeral Home Friday from 1-2 p.m. prior to the service.
Arrangements under the personal care and direction of Hedge-Lewis-Goodwin Funeral Home Webb City.
