Obituary of Lisa Ann Frost

Bloomfield – Lisa Ann Frost was joyfully welcomed into the world on January 27, 1963, and passed away peacefully on March 20, 2024, after a 43-day period of incredible stress. She was surrounded by her loving family and the hospital chaplain who guided her journey with thoughtful prayers. She was laid to rest on March 25, 2024. Lisa was preceded in death by her mother, Anita (VanDeventer) Frost in December 2001, her father, Robert Lloyd Frost in January 2002, and several aunts and uncles. Lisa is survived by her sister, Bobbi (Andrew) Stipp, nephews, Matthew Evans and John Stipp, all of Heltonville, Michael (Josie) Evans and expected great-nephew, Anthony C. Evans, of Leesville, and “Mom Judy” Stipp, of Heltonville. She was a homemaker and lived most of her life in Greene County. She was in 4-H, winning several ribbons at the local and state level and was a pen pal to friends in Japan and South Korea in youth and a member of Theta Rho Sorority, Rebekah Lodge, and the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW. Thanks to her parents and reminiscent of the Victory Garden practices, Lisa became involved in vegetable gardening and home canning and other food storage methods. She maintained her love of the garden, growing seedlings of vegetables, herbs, and perennials in her small greenhouse. She was a fan of Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard in Bloomington, often selling and donating produce and plants to others. She raised chickens and other livestock on her small homestead and sold fresh farm eggs to many people who would drive in from other counties. Lisa also enjoyed bluegrass music and was so enamored with the banjo that she decided to teach herself and spent many hours joyfully practicing. Lisa was the unofficial curator of family antiques and memorabilia, including a quilt that was pieced together from a uniform worn by a civil war ancestor on her maternal grandmother’s side. It was placed in the casket with her, where she can continue protecting it. She was a friend to the disabilities community, always accepting those who needed a chance. She was courageous in all that she attempted. She experienced life with determination, always holding her head high regardless of those silly, little missteps that all humans make along the way. Believing in second chances, she trusted and forgave freely. People always knew where they stood with her. Those who truly knew and cared about Lisa, understood her challenges and accepted that part of her. To those family members and friends, the family is very grateful for their understanding and will keep you in their prayers in return. Lisa is already missed and will always be loved. We look forward to seeing her again. A special thank you to Aunt Gloria Hoppe for the plot so that she can be with her sister and nephews, and to hospital Chaplain Cheryl (City Church), for baptizing Lisa the day before her passing.
