Lisa Paxhia Clark September 21, 1964 to March 23, 2023
Lisa was born in Wichita, Kansas to Alan and Anita Paxhia. She graduated from Liberty High School (Issaquah, Washington) 1982 and from the University of Washington in June 1987. On August 29, 1987 she married Lt Gary Clark and they immediately started their adventure together by being stationed and moving to Germany.
Lisa and Gary made their home in Cocoa Beach, Florida where they raised two children, Ciara Clark and Andrew Clark. Lisa was a beautiful light that touched everyone she knew. Her love of travel, cooking and friendship brought joy to everyone that was blessed to be in her presence. Not only could she cook the most fabulous meals, but you felt like her love transcended through the food she was cooking. She was always available to lend an ear when you needed help and through her unique perspective you always felt better to take on the world after that. She will be missed in so many ways. But we see that heaven has truly received an angel from earth.
She is survived by her husband Gary, her daughter Ciara (Neil Barsode) and son Andrew. She is also survived by her mother Anita Drummond (stepfather Dave Drummond), father Alan Paxhia, sister Susie Paxhia and brother Michael Paxhia, her in-laws Char and Jim Turner, Tom and Elaine Clark and Kona the family pit bull. She was preceded in death by her brother Paul Paxhia and Step Mother Deborah Paxhia.
Lisa passed at home surrounded by her family after suffering three and one-half years with breast cancer. A Memorial service will be held at Buckman-Williamson in Cocoa Beach Florida followed by a reception at the home.
