In 1987 Lisa met Scott McAlister and they had three beautiful boys, Brandon, Brodee, and Braxton. Lisa loved her boys more than anything and had a special bond with each of them. When Lisa became a grandma, she quickly gained the name “Grandma LeeLee” to Ryden, Brogan, Makenna, Brynlee, Nyxon, and Logan.

Lisa was the Green Bay Packers #1 fan. She enjoyed watching the Packers’ games with her family and was the leader of the PACK. GO PACK GO! Lisa loved deeply and if you were her friend you were her friend for life. Lisa was an avid fisherman and spent countless days fishing with her friends, her son, Brodee, and her grandkids. She loved and found peace in the mountains and she had a knack for decorating and crafting. Most of all she was fun and always up for a good joke and laugh.

Lisa is survived by her three sons, Brandon (Maci) McAlister, Brodee (Teagen) McAlister, and Braxton (Mikayla) McAlister; her parents, Larry and Sue Stephenson; her three sisters Lorry Nickel, Lana (Chris) Reichert, and Shannon (Jim) Gnesa; six grandchildren, whom she loved dearly, Ryden, Brogan, Makenna, Brynlee, Nyxon, and Logan; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Family and friends will be received from 5 until 7 p.m. Thursday, January 13, at Rasmussen-Wilson Funeral Home, located at 1350 E. 16th St., in Burley.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests that you make a donation in her memory to a charity of your choice.

A celebration of life will be held this summer somewhere in the mountains at one of her favorite places.
