5/16/1953 ~ 1/15/2020\r\n\r\nLisa Ann Stephens came into the world on May 16, 1953, born to Louis and Norma Martineau in Salt Lake City, Utah, while her father was away serving in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. She lived most of her life in Utah, with only a few years spent living in the Denver area. She loved to spend time with her grandparents who lived both in St. George and Salt Lake City. From her mother’s side, the Mros Family, she inherited a great love for music. Her grandfather played both the piano and the organ. Most of her cousins also had great musical talents. Lisa had a beautiful singing voice and loved to sing to her children and later to her 6 grandchildren. Her favorite songs were primary songs, most of which she knew by heart. Her home was always filled with music from classic rock to opera, and she could sing along with almost any Broadway musical. \r\nLisa was a great cook and would always make cookies, cakes, and candy and give them to anyone she felt needed a lift. She served in many different church callings, but her most loved calling was teaching Relief Society. She would prepare for weeks in advance to make sure she would have the Spirit with her. There was always a craft or baked good that accompanied her lesson and tied into the theme. She was always the first to volunteer to bring food or do anything else that was needed of her. Even as her health declined and she was living with significant pain, she continued to truly live the principle “I am my brother’s keeper.” She was the happiest when she could make someone else’s day a little bit better.\r\nLisa truly loved the gospel and was always seen reading her scriptures. She loved the Lord and taught her children that they could rely on Him. Lisa never doubted in her faith and always looked to our Savior to get her through difficult times.\r\nLisa was very creative and she loved to make crafts and homemade cards for others. Her talent for crafts led to a hand-made craft business. She sold her work at shops, craft fairs, and out of her home. \r\nLisa loved spending time at the family cabin especially in the fall when the leaves changed color. Together with her husband, she would drive the road over Guardsman’s Pass to Park City and Heber, spending the whole day just enjoying nature and the beauty in the canyons. She liked traveling to different places until her health started getting bad. She and Ron went on cruises to Mexico and Alaska. Whenever she would go anywhere on a trip, she would always look for the right gift to bring back for each member of her family. Lisa was happy in any location as long as she was with family, but the trip to Alaska with her father and siblings held a special place in her heart. \r\nIn everything she did, Lisa gave it her all. No matter the size of the task, large or small, she put her full heart into it. She was always ready in a moment’s notice to do whatever she could to help out someone in need. She was a beautician by training and her ladies were more than customers, they were family. Her children grew up wondering why they had so many aunts. Some of her clients traveled many miles to come have their hair done and visit with her. Many of her ladies were clients for over forty years. And if one of her special ladies passed away, she was the one who would go to the mortuary to do their hair. While she worked, she would talk to them as though they were just getting their hair done at a regular appointment. She loved to do that little bit of service. \r\nShe was loved by those who knew her and she gave love in return. She always made sure everyone that came to her home felt welcomed. She took in people who needed help and gave them love and a place to stay. Some have even become part of the family. She led by example all her life and we need to follow that example. It is so hard to know that she will no longer be a part of our lives here on Earth. We will all miss her very much. \r\nLisa will continue to be honored and loved in this life by her husband, Ronald Stephens, her four children and her six grandchildren: Luke Stephens (Alida) and Brycen Stephens; Corbin Stephens (Darci) and Hudson, Grayson, and London; Sara Stephens (Mark Giecek) and Dannika Giecek and Isabell Garcia; and Jeff Stephens. \r\nA viewing will be held from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., Sunday, January 19, 2020, at Jenkins Soffe Mortuary located at 4760 S.

The funeral will be held at 11:00 a.m. on January 20, 2020, at the Hillcrest Stake Center, located at 8485 S. 1000 E., Sandy, with a viewing immediately prior from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. Interment will be at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1700 E. 10600 S.
