Lisa Campbell-Patterson the youngest child born to Jack and Edith Campbell of Blockton, IA passed away after a brief illness on April 7, 2020 at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, AZ.
Lisa chose a career in law enforcement, beginning with the Taylor County, IA Sheriff’s office and ending after serving over thirty years with the Polk County, IA Sheriff’s office in Des Moines. The Iowa State Fair was Lisa’s favorite time of year, rarely missing a day at the fair while she lived in Des Moines. Demonstrating products for Anderson Erickson in her early retirement was a part-time job Lisa enjoyed, she preferred AE eggnog to any other refreshment ever devised.
In 2015 Lisa made her second home in Apache Junction her permanent address. Lisa loved the Superstition Mountains, walking the trails and going for a drive. Experiencing the desert and all Arizona had to offer was one of her favorite pastimes. Lisa always said she was never lost as there was always a place to turn around.
Lisa was preceded in death by her husband Warren “Pat” Patterson and her parents.
Lisa is survived by brothers, J. R. Campbell (Ann) of Topeka, KS; Allen Campbell (Sandy) of Arvada, CO, three nieces and a nephew and a host of friends from all over the United States and Canada. Lisa’s presence made a lot of people’s lives much more meaningful, she never knew a stranger and will be missed by her family and a host of friends.
Private services and internment will be held at Rose Hill Cemetery in Blockton, IA at a later date.
