Lisa Ruth McGarvin was born on January 30, 1959, in Worland, Wyoming and died on January 31, 2020, with loved ones by her side after a short illness.
Lisa’s love for her family, friends, and animals touched many during her 61 years. Lisa worked as a paralegal at Daly & Sorenson at the time of her death. She was a grandmother, mother, stepmother, sister, daughter, and a dear friend to many.
In 2012, she moved back to Gillette, Wyoming to be close to her family, especially her grandchildren. Lisa was a very proud mother of three adult children with Robert Mills. She shared the last seven years with the love of her life, Danny Hoekstra, and was a stepmother to Shalayna and Chelsea.
She is survived by her three adult children and five grandchildren: Tara Twomey (Shannon) and Kayleb (18); Ashlee Fischer (Joe) and Clara (7), Carson (5), and Cadee (2); Hunter Mills (Alli) and Arlo (2). She is also survived by her dad, Larry McGarvin, and siblings, Jeff McGarvin (Kathy), Lucinda McGarvin, Melissa O’Melia (Bill), and Jillian Balow (John). Lisa was greeted in heaven by her mom, Susan McGarvin, her nephew Drennen O’Melia and many, many four-legged pets that she rescued and adopted.
A memorial service for Lisa will be held at 1:00 p.m., Friday, February 7, 2020 at Gillette Memorial Chapel with Pastor Paul Baughman officiating.
Memorials may be made in Lisa’s name to benefit Fur Kids Foundation or Drennan’s Dreams Foundation.
