In Loving Memory
Elizabeth Therese Howard, at the age of 61, of Kernville, Calif., went to be with the Lord peacefully on Monday, April 23, 2018. Lisa, as many knew her by, was born on December 23, 1956, in Torrance, Calif. Lisa and her husband Nicholas of 21 years moved to Kernville in 1995. She had always loved the Kern River Valley, as it was where, as a child, her family had vacationed. Lisa was a licensed personal trainer through ISSA for 19 years. It was one of her true passions in life. But nothiACng compares to how she was a devoted wife, mother, grandma, sister, and friend. Her greatest joy in this life was her family, more than anything. Elizabeth is now in her eternal home with her mother June, father Jules, brother Richard, mother-in-law Jean, and father-in-law William, who she had missed dearly for many years.
She is survived by her beloved husband Nicholas; children Jason, Samantha, and Kyle; her sisters, Georgie and Linda; her grandchildren, Serena, Nicholas, Maric, Emma, Haley, Hayden, Scarlett, A.J., Katarina, Rosco, and Lyric; great-grandchild Ryder; nieces and nephews Matthew, Elise, Krista, Vincent, Audry, Joey, John, and Stephanie; and great nieces and nephews Chase, Daisee, and Tori. We will miss her every day until we meet again.
A wife, a mother, a grandma too, this is the legacy we have from you. You taught us love and how to live, you gave us strength, you gave us might. A stronger person would be hard to find, and in your heart, you were always kind. You fought for us all in one way or another, not just as a wife, not just as a mother. For us all you gave your best, now the time has come for you to rest. So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep, your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 20 , 2018, at:
Frandy Park, 11252 Kernville Road, Kernville, Calif., 93238.
