Lisa Lynette Overstreet, 61, of Winnsboro, passed away unexpectedly on August 11. Lisa was born on April 27, 1961, in Hopkins County to J.B. Davis and Janice Baxter. She will be deeply missed by her friends and family, especially her two children with whom she was very close.
She was a longtime employee of the Winnsboro Dollar General store as well as Whispering Pines Nursing Home where she made many lifelong friends. Lisa treasured her beloved children and would tell everyone she met how proud she was of them. She also loved her faithful canine companion, her miniature poodle Gia, whom you may have seen riding around town with her and even accompanying her into business establishments. She was extremely tough and was a 20-year stroke survivor. She enjoyed taking road trips with her daughter, eating a good steak, and making people laugh. She had a huge heart and would help anyone in need whether they had two legs or four. She was a fiercely loyal friend who asked for little, but gave so much. She did not take compliments easily, but she was a beautiful person inside and out.
Lisa was preceded in death by her brother Chris Davis of Winnsboro; and her parents, her father J.B. Davis of Greenville, and her mother and stepfather Janice and Ronnie Smith of Winnsboro. She is survived by her two children, her daughter Dr. Crystal Goodman and husband Colonel Joel Buenaflor of Carlisle, PA, and son Jesse Goodman of Winnsboro; her brother Shannon Davis and wife Bobbie of Winnsboro; her Aunt Sue Joyner, who was more like a sister, and husband Kelly of Winnsboro; as well as many beloved cousins, nieces, nephews, and cherished friends.
