Ana-Lisa Albright, age 40, died peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 11:11 PM. Lisa was born at home on May 18, 1980, in Hot Springs, Arkansas to David and Kari Albright. She graduated from Oden High School in 1998 and The Art Institute of Dallas in 2000. Lisa’s artistic talent, creative genius, and generous spirit were unmatched. A few of Lisa’s joys in life were Saturday mornings at the Farmer’s Market, riding her bicycle all over northwest Arkansas, and spending time with friends and family. However, nothing surpassed her love and devotion to her daughter, Aurora.
When Lisa was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in October 2014, she summoned her inner Tank Girl and went to war on that cancer; she gave it all she had and more. She conquered it for six hard-fought years.
Lisa is survived by her daughter, Aurora Faye Coker; her father and mother, David and Kari (née Wallstrom) Albright; a sister and brother-in-law, Jessica (née Albright) and Zach Newcomb; a brother and sister-in-law, Adam and Abigail Albright; two nieces, Clara Newcomb and Alberta Albright; and two nephews, Isaac “Ike” Newcomb and Mosha Albright.
Family, friends, and others whose lives Lisa touched are invited to the HERITAGE FUNERAL HOME, 1591 S 48th Street, Springdale, AR at 2:00 PM on Friday, October 23, 2020 to remember and celebrate her precious life. Please wear a mask and dress casually, as though you were planning to meet-up with Lisa at the Farmer’s Market! If you are unable to attend in person, the service will be live-streamed on Lisa’s Facebook page.
