- Obituary -

On Sunday, August 8, 2021 Lisa Carolyn Obioha Walls, devoted wife and mother, was called home and healed in heaven at the age of 55. Lisa, a demure, fun loving fashionista, was born on June 22, 1966 in Kansas City, MO to Barbara and Robert Herron, Sr. who lovingly called her ‘Ladybug’. At an early age, she was baptized at Prince of Peace Missionary Baptist Church where she sang in the Junior Choir and served in every way she could. She received her high school diploma from Paseo High School and attained a Certified Nursing Assistant certification that enabled her to serve in healthcare for over a decade. She was overjoyed in her first marriage when she welcomed the birth of her only child Cierra Chuly (Obioha) Boyd, and on April 7, 2001, she married Ellis Ray Walls who loved her for over 20 years and helped raise her daughter Cierra since the age of 10.

Lisa strongly valued community and was a good, loyal friend. She loved her family, friends and church. She had immense joy whenever she could talk to her best friend Bridgechette, and looked forward to her daily talks with her niece Robin, regular check-ins with her nephews, and three times per day facetime calls to her one-year old granddaughter Chiamara (her greatest gift) – who was learning to affectionately call her “Amore,” which means ‘love’ in Italian. She was known for being selfless and authentic. She was always true to herself and spoke the truth no matter what, telling it like it is and never holding back.

Lisa also lived a life of servitude and had a passion for giving back. She volunteered at a domestic violence shelter for many years – something she said brought her fulfillment and honor. She was the ultimate bookworm as well, reading hundreds of novels, and her favorite – biographies and autobiographies. She was also a devout Christian and known for her strength and faith throughout all health challenges she encountered, studying The Word daily. When she wasn’t deep into scripture or a new book, or investing in others, she enjoyed shoe and clothes shopping. She owned countless pairs of shoes and was a trend-setter, always lighting up the room with her fashion – never looking like anything of what she was going through. Lisa had a creative mind and also loved the arts. Her hobbies included home interior design, baking and she relished attending live plays, musicals and concerts at her favorite venue, Starlight Theater. She also cherished time with her husband Ellis, going on outings and dates to the movie theater, the City Market and local restaurants. And when she traveled, Atlanta was her go-to destination where she spent time with her beloved daughter, never missing a milestone; settling into a new job, marriage to her son-in-love Tommy, the birth of her granddaughter and her granddaughter’s first birthday on July 3, 2021.

Lisa was preceded in death by her father, Robert. She is survived by her husband Ellis, her daughter Cierra (Tommy), her granddaughter Chiamara, her mother Barbara, sister Jacqueline (Fred), brothers Johnny (Diane) and Robert Jr., and niece Robin (Delvin) and several other cousins, nieces and nephews.

My cousin-friend, words truly cannot express how much I will miss laughing and talking with you. Those cherished moments at the annual family Christmas Breakfast will not be the same without you. That was our major catch up time. CeCe is correct when she shared you enjoyed shopping for clothes and shoes. You always were a classy dresser, I guess we all got that from Grandma and our aunts. As for speaking your mind, well, most of the granddaughters are known for that too. We were taught to speak up and stand up for what we believe is true. You were so brave and so strong. You fought a good fight, you finished your course. Now, you're resting in the strong arms of the almighty. Forever loved and remembered💞

Lisa was a beautiful person inside and out. It was always a pleasure to see and talk to her. She handled life with an amazing strength and grace. My prayers are with you all during this difficult time. May our Lord provide a peace that surpasses all understanding and may she rest in eternal peace.

Dr. Teresa Marshall

Cierra, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this time of loss. I can't even begin to express how my heart aches for you. I wish you healing and peace and that God continues to surround you with the loving memories to bring you comfort and strength.

LADYBUG; You will be well missed big little sister. The joy we had going over the Word of God, the times we comforted one another through heartaches and pains. But your pain and suffering has ended. Know longer having to imagine laying your head in the bosom of Christ as the pain level increased. You ran the race well. Your faith stood in your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Who brought you through so much; “NOW REST!!” With all my love; your little bro JOHN-JOHN

Johnny M. Herron

I’m going to truly miss you Lisa! Our last conversation you celebrated my recovery from breast cancer & thanked God for his healing power over me. We were always concerned about each other & we always remembering to keep one another lifted up in prayer. We’ve cried together when my dad passed & you said your dad missed his dialysis buddy. We’re forever connected & you’re forever loved! Until we meet again my Sista. Love you always!

Laurie Bey
