Lisa was born August 27, 1962, in Lincoln County, TN to Lola Whitaker Gray and the late Stanley Dale Gray. She attended seminary classes at Sewanee and was known by many to be very compassionate and empathetic. Lisa had a true servant’s heart, caring more for the needs of others than for those of her own.

Lola, the message I received from you today broke my heart. As I told you, I can’t begin to fathom the loss of a child, of any age. I know what a close bond you and Lisa shared and I am so grateful for the wonderful memories you have to help bring you comfort. Please know that we will keep you in our daily prayers, asking God to give you strength to keep going and the peace only He can give. You, Stan, and Lisa were a big part of our lives many years ago in Dallas and you will always have a special place in our hearts. We love you! Linda and John
Lola and Family, my heart breaks for you. Lisa was a sweet young lady and I enjoyed talking to her from time to time as neighbors. Lola, I am only a phone call away if you ever need anything. May God comfort you during this trying time. With Love,Judy
I loved Lisa. She was special and we shared a passion for plants. I will miss her especially when we have our cousins together.for lunch. Know that you are in my prayers, Lola, in the loss of your precious daughter. Rest In Peace, Lisa.
So very sorry to hear this. Lisa was a true joy to be around and always so kind to me. She had such great advice for me. Prayers for peace and comfort for the family.
Our thoughts and prayers to all the family. Lisa was always a delight to be around and an impression to all that had the opportunity to know her. Lisa will be surely missed!

Lisa was more a sister than cousin. We shared so much in common and kept in touch by texts weekly sending pictures, talking about anything. We stayed close in heart because We never had the opportunity to live close. We always knew we were there for each other. I can’t imagine life without her being a text or call away. I love her so much. I am glad for the pain she had to end and know she is at peace with my wonderful Uncle Stanley and her dogs Autumn, Chelsea and Josie she loved so dearly. I have such good memories of the Christmas times together growing up and vacations we shared. Lisa will always be in my heart.
Lola and family , so sorry for your loss. You are in our prayers
I worked with Lisa at the Hamblen Co. Sheriff’s Dept. and we became fast long time friends. Lisa is why I became the “plant freak” that I am today. I didn’t know that she was sick, I wish I had known. Sorry for your loss.
I worked with Lisa for many years with TDOC. She was a sweet lady and she will be greatly missed. My sincerest condolences to her family.
