Lisa Fae O'Dell Perkins, 47 of Diana, peacefully left this world and went to meet her Lord Jesus on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at her home with her family by her side. She was born April 22, 1965 in Cowen to William Richard "Bill" and Sondra Fae Tracy O'Dell, was a lifelong resident of Webster County, and Christian by faith. She loved life, her Lord Jesus, family gatherings, reading, raising flowers, collecting and polishing rocks, and looking for arrowheads.
She participated in the American Cancer Society Reach to Recovery Program, was guest speaker at the Huntington Country Club under the direction of Dr. Gerard Oakley to inspire women with breast and cervical cancer, and was volunteer speaker at Days Inn in Flatwoods for the Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program.
