Lisa Fox had an infectious love of life, her kind, loving, and adventurous spirit will live on in all who knew her. Lisa had a passionate heart, and a desire to live life to its fullest potential. She never met an adventure she didn’t want to take, a horse she didn’t want to ride, or a country song, to which, she didn’t want to dance. She was the kind of person who would be there in the middle of the night, if she was called, show up with food if you were hungry, and sit with you for hours if you were sad. She was truly magical. Things always seemed to work out in her favor, and she was very generous with all of her blessings. In our hearts we know that her wings were ready, but we were not. Though a piece of our hearts has gone with her, she will live on in our memories and we know she will be with us as we find our own adventures.
Lisa lost her battle with COVID-19 in the early morning hours of March 29, 2021. Her desire to live never wavered. She did not give up hope at any point of her hospital stay, often taking phone calls from her family members and making plans for what she wanted to do after leaving the hospital.
Born in Santa Barbara as the youngest child of 6, Lisa had a life long love of horses and was extremely proud of her Native American heritage. She held many different jobs over her life and was always willing to assist her family members whenever it was possible.
Lisa is survived by Tyler Fox, her beloved son, her brothers Larry and Paul, and her sisters Silvia, Carmen, and Maria, as well as her many cousins, nieces and nephews.
