Lisa G. Kirkland, 56, of Boise, Idaho, passed away on March 5, 2018 from natural causes while spending time with her much loved family.
Lisa was born in Castro Valley, California on December 28, 1961 to Jesse Moore and Evelyn Moore. She had one brother, Darren Moore of Boise. She married Rodney L. Kirkland on March 3, 1984 in Winnemucca, Nevada. They later divorced in July 1998 and remained friends. She graduated from Meridian High School. She worked at Sysco Food Services of Idaho since 1999. She had many hobbies from car racing, football, and baseball; but horses were her passion. She loved to ride and be around them. Whether she was brushing their manes and tails or riding; just being around them made her complete.
She was the most amazing mother and grandmother that anyone could have ever asked for. She was always there regardless of time of day for anyone. She always told us that my brother and I were the best things that had ever happened to her; but the days her three beautiful grandchildren came into this world put a run up for the greatest thing to have ever happen to her. She was the grandmother that we all wish we had growing up. Those babies will always be the apple in her eye. She smiled every time she saw them, and you knew that they made her complete.
Obituaries always say to tell a story, but I can’t just pick one. Every time we were all together, which was weekly, we always had a blast. Our fondest memories of us all together with her would be the Oregon Coast trips that we would randomly go on, without a plan other than to have a good time and be together.
She is survived by her children, Ashley M. Voss (spouse Greg J. Voss) and Cody L. Kirkland (spouse Danielle E. Kirkland); grandchildren, Paislee M. Voss, Peyton K. Kirkland, and Easton L. Kirkland; brother, Darren Moore; and many other friends who adored her. She was an absolute amazing woman, mother, grandmother, and friend who forever will be missed and loved more than anything in this world. We can here her saying now “Hakuna Matata” It means no worries.
Her Celebration of Life service details will follow once full details are put together. She is being cremated at Cloverdale Funeral Home in Boise, Idaho. Her ashes along with her father’s ashes will be spread along the Oregon Coast which is what she wanted.
