She was born on December 18, 1965 to Harold Scott Senior & Hazel Iris Riley in the city of Rock Springs Wyoming.
She married Mitch Keith on October 15, 1990. They have lived in Kansas City the past 10 years.
She is survived by her husband Mitch and their 3 children, Kaleb and his wife Samantha, Kris & Kedrick. She is also survived by her brothers and sisters: Denise Madison, James Scott, Harold Scott junior, Tina Burnley, Dale Scott, Ann Bowlby and her niece/daughter Samantha Ann Madison. As well as her "adopted" kids Branson, Vinnie, Dakota, Zack, Sam and others.
She called herself a Domestic Engineer Extraordinaire, but she was so much more than that. She was also a mother, wife, daughter and friend to so many! She was an artist and crafter. She helped several people get their Masters degrees but never finished her own, Masters of sociology. She was only one class and dissertation short and desperately wanted to finish.
She was a social worker for Swope Health Services and school teacher for 2 years at Bridger Middle School, in the Independence School District. She loved both teaching and social work. She worked on a grant with her friend Joy Ruto to help teach and take care of children/teens in Africa.
She shared some of her thoughts on Facebook, including her religious views, on which she wrote "I believe it is all about finding your spiritual balance and harmony!"
On Political Views, she said "Dont get me started on my thoughts about government".
She was passionate writer and was working on a book which would be titled "From White Trash to Golden Garbage". It was too be about her journey from poverty to abundance from a sociological perspective.
Five years ago she wrote on Facebook, "I am married to my best friend ever; its not just anyone that you can take a nearly 19 year journey with through nearly every physical and mental storm possible and still look forward to spending time with them!
I am a mother of three boys, all of which are in various locations along that path we adults refer to as adolescence! As if that is not enough of a challenge, we also stay busy with Boy Scouts, school events, and many other various fun teen age boy activities.
Currently in between jobs as they say. Looking for the perfect middle age mother tired of working job. Hoping to return to school within the next several months to finish my Master's degree, only have a couple of classes left! I am really hoping to get started with marketing myself as a writer! This would fulfill a dual purpose for me, I could do something I truly want to do and be able to pay the rent!."
Lisa Ann said her favorite quotes changed depending on the particular circumstances she was dealing with on this journey we call life! At the time of the writing it was
"Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears!" and "Perserverance is the ability to stick to something your not stuck on."
We're definately not stuck on living without her, but hopefully knowing she will be watching over us will help us persevere.
She always had a dream to bring Peace every where she went and she often had kind and comforting words to share with others. One such example of this is in a post she shared in the past. She shared a beautiful version of this quote by Henry Scott Holland, and it's a great way to give her a final voice now;
Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
That, we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect.
Without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you.
For an interval.
Somewhere. Very near.
Just around the corner.
All is well.
"I love you more than all the fish in the ocean
I love you more than all the sand on the beach
I love you more than all the stars in the sky.
I love you always and forever"
"Aunt Lisa I am going to miss you. You and uncle Mitch made a huge impact on my life, more than you probably even realize. You have always been there for me Ever since I can remember. You never once judged me or my poor decisions i sometimes made, you May not have agreed with some of them haha I now look back and understand why you didn't agree. Never once did u judge me though and that always ment alot to me. You always tried to find the good in people and never talked bad about people.
