Lisha Vance, age 57, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019.

Lisha was born May 20th, 1961 in Avery County to Tommy and Shirley Vance.

She was proceeded in death by her paternal grandparents, Viola and Ross Vance and maternal grandparents, Floi and Lonnie Aldridge.

Survivors include: her parents, Tommy and Shirley Vance; sons, Cameron Johnson of Wilmington and Cody Johnson of Marion; sister, Lori Vance of Marion; grandchildren, Elijah, Austin, Oakley and Dallas; nephew and niece, Tyler Hall of Marion and Tiffany McIver of Clemmons; fiancé, Tim Adkins and her closest friends, Christy Carpenter and Kim Rumfelt.

Lisha had an unshakable love for her boys. She raised them with such a servant’s heart and took great pride in making their childhood adventurous and loving. As the boys were growing up, her home was where all of the kids wanted to go and Lisha would welcome each of them with loving arms. Animals were no exception. She adored both horses and dogs.

As the boys grew older, Lisha began her career in law enforcement and later transitioned into working with high-risk youth at a juvenile home. She made a profound impact on their lives and loved them relentlessly with a mother’s love.

Lisha was the best listener you could ask for. She always saw the best in people, oftentimes when others didn’t. She is an irreplaceable daughter, sister, mom and friend. She was so generous; always willing to give, even if it was the last of what she had. Lisha’s legacy continues on through all who loved her and encountered her kindness, loyalty and great sense of humor.
