Heavenly Father received the greatest gift on January 17, 2019. She has been the bravest sweetest girl that there has been born. Lisa has lived a life full of goodness. She has had a great impact on everyone’s lives that has ever known her. Lisa has loved everyone unconditionally. No one has had a bigger heart. She has always been full of wisdom, love, and light. Lisa has fought so hard to live. She did that for all of us. She never met a stranger and anyone that ever met her never forgot her. She loved her wonderful family. Lisa’s sweet husband of 32 years Tim. Her children and her grandchildren. Lisa has always loved the Lord and she has been closer to him than is imaginable. Nana was the magic work for her.

Lisa is survived by her husband, Tim of the home; two sons, Timmy and Amber of Monkey Island, Ok, and Josh and Sarah of Webb City; one daughter, Megan Morrow, Jacob, of Miami, Ok; grandchildren, Parker, Bronson, Ada, Larami, with three more due in 2019. Lisa is also survived by one sister, Amy Wallace, Jim, of Joplin; and her parents, Larry and Margaret Shepherd of Joplin. She is also survived by her mother-in-law, Hilda Matthews and brother-in-law George Matthews, and Glenda of Arnaudville, La. Also surviving are a host of family and friends.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, January 21, 2019 at 2:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Joplin. The family will receive friends on Sunday, January 20th from 3:00pm until 5:00pm at Mason-Woodard Mortuary in Joplin. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to send donations to the Hope House of Kansas City and may be entrusted to the mortuary.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss...I didn't know Lisa well. She seemed to have a sweet soul. I pray for comfort upon you and your family..

I didn't know Lisa but would like to offer my sympathies and comfort. She sounds like someone that was a friend to all and would do anything for anyone. We need more people like that in this troubled world. I would like to send comfort to her family in the way of 2 Cor 1:3,4. God is willing to comfort us when we go through trials. He does this through his word, through his people and through the wonderful avenue of prayer. I look forward to meeting her in the grand resurrection promised in God's word. John 5:28, 29 . I hope that as time goes by, your pain will turn into beautiful memories of Lisa for time is a healer.

My deepest sympathy to your family as you mourn the passing of Mrs. Matthews. I pray hope from God's Word will be your strength as you meditate on His promise to end death and tears of sadness." 1 Thessalonians 4:14, Revelation 21:4, John 5:28,29,
