On January 6, 2021, Lisa Catherine (Edwards) McVey, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend, passed away at the age of 51. Lisa was born on January 31, 1969, in Columbus, Ohio to Nancy Carolla and Roscoe Edwards. Lisa’s best years were spent being a loving and devoted mother of her children. She loved her children deeply and was so incredibly proud of them.
Lisa was selfless and cared greatly about others. She was sweet, loyal, kind, and would do anything for her family and friends, and often did. She was incredibly fun-loving and had an amazing and contagious smile. Lisa loved spending time with her sisters, who were her very best friends. Even at an early age, they took every opportunity to spend quality time together, which later in life grew to also include all of their kids. Lisa’s family was the most important thing in the world to her.
Lisa was preceded in death by her father Roscoe Edwards. She is survived by her children, Chelsea, Brittany, Justin, and Logan, her grandson Kyree, her mother Nancy, her siblings Laura, Anna, Tony, Shawna, and Christian, and nieces and nephews.
Lisa’s family would like to raise awareness of the devastating opioid epidemic that is claiming lives at an exponential rate and leaving families without their loved ones.
