“An uncontrollable urge to giggle overtook me. I tried to smother it and ended up snorting in a most unladylike fashion.”
― Helen Harper, Bloodfire
This is a perfect description of a late night conversation with Lisa Dukes. She was someone who loved fully and laughed without restraint. Someone who was not only easy to speak with but was fully present in the midst of it. Whether discussing her most current book series she was reading, or who she thought was going to win in The Great British Bake Off, or even just discussing how each other’s days have gone, Lisa made it a habit to give you her full attention.
She was born Lisa Michelle Dukes to Dan & Angela on December 18th, 1979 in Orlando, Fl. She filled her time with a career that she loved at the Virginia Credit Union, celebrating with friends at weddings and baby showers, buying a home in Chesterfield, laughing and smiling at Girls’ Night, traveling to South America in 2010 on mission work. The list goes on.
Lisa has always had a warm and generous heart, with a great sense of humor and a sprinkle of mischief. She was an avid reader whose favorite genres were mystery, fantasy, and historical fiction (extra points if the author could mix all 3 together). A phenomenal artist who enjoyed painting, crafting, and baking (yes, it’s an art form). She was definitely an artist who shared her heART through hand made christmas ornaments, hand painted pottery, or a specialty made birthday cake.
“Eventually, you realize that people are a better home than a place.”
—Annette Marie, Unleash the Storm
That’s who Lisa was – a home to those she loved.
Please join her friends and family in celebrating her life at Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service Sunday Nov 14th @ 2pm.
“Be excellent to each other. Party on, Dudes.”
