Lisa Nicole McCorkle, age 40, of the Mound community, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Saturday, March 7, 2020.
Services for Lisa were held on Thursday, March 12, 2020, at White Mound Baptist Church, with the Rev. Bruce Cox officiating.
Private family burial followed at the Mound Cemetery.
Lisa was born on Sept. 8, 1979, in Gatesville with her twin sister, Lara. Even though her earthly body was challenged with severe Cerebral Palsy, she is now made whole. Lisa was the light of our family. She taught us the meaning of unconditional love, compassion, service and acceptance of others. Lisa was an angel on earth, and her smile would light up a room. Lisa loved to e-mail her family members, listen to books that all of her family would read and record for her to listen to, watch movies and listen to music. Her favorite book was the Children’s Bible and one of her favorite things to do was to send balloons up to Heaven to loved ones. You cannot put to words how much of a special spirit Lisa was. She was truly a blessing in our lives. She has forever changed our lives and our hearts.
On June 2, 1993, Lisa accepted Jesus into her heart at Vacation Bible School at White Mound Baptist Church at age 13. Three years later on that same date, Lisa was baptized by Bro. Jay Smith and her Dad at our home swimming pool with 45 of her loved ones attending.
Lisa is survived by her parents, Eric & Liz McCorkle of Mound; older sister, Kelli Casey and husband, Patrick, of Frisco; twin sister, Lara of Tampa, FL; five nephews; and her grandmothers, Pat Gilmer of Gatesville and Elizabeth McCorkle of Mound, as well as aunts, uncles and cousins.
