Lisa (Melissa) Jo Parnell, 57, passed away at Mobile Infirmary on Monday, February 13, 2023. A native of Washington County, Lisa was born April 2, 1965. She worked at the silk mill in Jackson for a time but was primarily a homemaker. She was an easy-going lady who collected porcelain dolls and angels and loved taking pictures. She was what is known as a homebody, preferring to stay close to home, though she did enjoy occasional trips to the mountains, where she loved to see the foliage.
However, Lisa’s greatest love was for her grandchildren. ‘Mimi’ loved to spend time with and spoil Kendall and Grey. They loved her just as much as she loved them.
