Lisa Lyman Nielson passed away at her home on Friday, October 6, 2017 from an aggressive form of cancer. She was born November 4, 1958 in Rexburg, Idaho to Asael and LaDee Fikstad Lyman. She enjoyed very much being raised with five brothers. She wrote a poem about brothers that partly reads, “Life will bring unending joys but if I had my druthers, I’d wish for all I know and love at least a dozen brothers.” She graduated from Sugar Salem High School in 1977, and attended Ricks College. Lisa loved her high school days and her classmates all of her life. She married LaVelle William Nielson on August 3, 1979 in the Manti LDS Temple. They lived and raised their four children at Fool Creek Flat and Oak City, Utah.
She is survived by her loving husband: LaVelle; their children: Eli (Lacey), Jacob (Fran), Cody (Erica), Kjersti (Jordan); 12 grandchildren: Ace, Sam, Adi, Meg, Bostyn, Quincy, Lilly, Beth, Jane, Katelyn, Scarlett, and Emmalyn. Oh how she loves those kids!
What do you say about a woman like Lisa? She is faithful, wise, headstrong, valiant, compassionate, multi-talented, courageous, slightly irreverent, loving, but mostly just plain awesome!
Lisa, we love you. We miss you.
