Lisa Ann Willardson Obituary
1968 ~ 2013
Henderson, NV-Lisa Ann Willardson passed away on December 26, 2013 at her home in Henderson, Nevada. She was born in Salina, Utah, to Kathy J. Bastian and Robert L. Willardson on February 21, 1968.
Lisa graduated from North Sevier High school in 1986; Summa Cum Laude from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 1999, and Cum Laude from UNLV's William S. Boyd School of Law in 2002, receiving an array of academic awards and accolades throughout her academic journey.
Lisa was the owner of the law firm Willardson Law Group, PLLC; CEO and Editor of the Nevada Judicial Watch and the Nevada Judicial Guardian. Lisa not only devoted her time and resources, but her entire being to protecting society's most vulnerable - children. With no interest or regard for acknowledgement or praise, she earnestly fought for those that didn't yet have their own voice and dedicated herself to the health and welfare of children as a volunteer, as well as, an Assistant District Attorney in Clark County, Nevada. Lisa received the District Attorney Meritorious Award. In the 10 years she practiced law, she never lost a case. She was currently a candidate for District Court Judge - Family Division.
Lisa was a huge UFC fan, enjoyed 4-wheeling, snowmobiling, skiing and vacationing with siblings, nieces, nephews and parents. She also enjoyed working at the ranch. She was a super fan of her nieces and nephews and cheered them on at rodeos, soccer games, skate board parks, baseball games and track meets.
Lisa is survived by her life partner, Steven E. Jones; her mother, Kathy (Russ) Bastian; her father, Bob (Carol Ann) Willardson; brother and sisters: Shawn Willardson, Natalie Oppenheimer and Trina Willardson; step-sister, Nicole Chynoweth; nieces and nephews, Tyesha, Darien, Sierra and Ryker; grandmother, Helen Willardson; and a large extended family.
Lisa is preceded in death by a step-brother, Jared Bastian; her grandfather, Arnold Willardson; and grandparents, Stan and Beryl Jensen; and a great love, Cody L. Mickelsen.
A private family celebration honoring Lisa will take place on January 4, 2014.
