Miss Lisa Marcelle (Burkhalter) Haddock, age 52, of Cartersville, Georgia, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving family, on Sunday, April 14, 2019.

Lisa was born on July 30, 1966, in Cartersville, Georgia, to the late Mary Josephine and James H. Wofford III.

Lisa grew up in Cartersville and graduated from Cartersville High School (Class of '84). She went to work for Lever Bros., where she started at the front desk, eventually working her way into administration. She later worked at Excel Christian Academy in administration and coached cheerleading. She was an active member at the Church at Liberty Square (formerly known as Cartersville Church of God), where she participated heavily in children's ministry and small groups/Sunday School.

Those who knew Lisa knew that she was full of life, never met a stranger, and showed kindness to everyone. Lisa loved gardening, bird watching, the beach, her dogs, and most of all, her children. She loved the Lord with all of her heart, and sharing the Word to others. She leaves behind a legacy that will never be erased or forgotten, and will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Lisa is preceded in death by her parents.

She is survived by her two daughters, Emma Nicole (Nikki) Burkhalter and Mary Elizabeth Burkhalter; her two sisters, Lea Ann and Laura Wofford; her very special lifelong friend, Caron Chase; several nieces and nephews also survive to cherish Lisa's memory.

A Celebration of Life Service to honor Lisa's life will be held on Thursday, April 18, 2019, at two o'clock in the afternoon in the sanctuary at the Church at Liberty Square with Pastor Kimberly Reeves and Dr. Jacob King officiating. Burial will follow the service at Oak Hill Cemetery. Serving as pallbearers will be Keith Turner, Mason Turner, Matthew Wright, Dexter Jones, Michael Davenport, and Andrew Williams.

The family will receive friends for visitation at Owen Funeral Home on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, from five o'clock in the afternoon until eight o'clock in the evening.

Nikki and Mary Beth, whenever I think of your mom, what comes first and foremost to my mind is her fierce love for her girls. I am filled with admiration for the courage with which she fought this battle and you have my sincere condolences on the loss of your precious mother.

I had the pleasure of working with Lisa for several years. She was so full of joy! Her love of life and enthusiasm were contagious. No matter what was going on, she always had a smile. I will never forget our conversations about the funny things all our 'critters' were doing. The comforting thought in all this is that her beautiful spirit lives on. Nikki and Marybeth, you are in our prayers!

I was blessed to have worked with Lisa for several years at Excel Christian Academy. She was the most level headed person I have ever known. Regardless how trying the day, how heavy the workload, or how pressing the deadline, she never panicked. Her approach to every situation was always Christ-like, and I am thankful for the influence she had on my life. I am a better person today because of Lisa. Nikki and Mary Beth I am praying for God's strength and peace to surround and comfort you.

Lisa was one of my first friends when I moved to Cartersville our senior year of high school. There are some people that you never forget, and she is one of them for me. Dance with the Angels my friend.

I met Lisa and family when we moved to Signal Mountain. We enjoyed get to gethers, painting parties and just visiting on the porch or deck. We would often plot silly adventures and laugh till we were nearly ill. I will miss our texts and her smile. I will miss her.

I worked with Lisa at Lever and the conversations we had and the laughs we shared was truly unforgettable. The last time we talked, even though she was in pain, we shared some great memories. For her girls, please know Lisa was truly a gem with a heart of gold. If there is anything I can do for you all, please don’t hesitate to let me know. Will truly miss my friend.
