Alicia Jean "Lisa" Braswell
STATESBORO, Ga. -- Our beautiful mom, Alicia Jean "Lisa" Braswell, age 50, died peacefully surrounded by loved ones on October 28th at East Georgia Regional Medical Center after an extended illness.
    She was preceded in death by her father, Danny Hyland Braswell; her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Braswell and Mr. and Mrs. Elton Rowe.
    Our mom was a 1989 graduate of Southeast Bulloch High School. She was a member of The Bridge Church in Pembroke and served as the director of Operations at Open Hearts Community Mission.
    Dearly loved by residents and volunteers, Lisa was a unique combination of a den mother, role model, parent and confidant to the residents. She was devoted to her work and her legacy will live on in the many lives she touched.
    A lover of the outdoors, gardening and plants, she also enjoyed working on Saturdays alongside her dear friend, Becky Polk, at Polk's Plus in Pooler.
    Her greatest work on earth were her two sons for whom she had an unwavering love.
    She is survived by us, her two sons, Danny James Bohannon (his fiancée, Brooke Michelle Hendrix) and Wesley Hyland Bohannon, both of Stilson; her mother, Ophelia Rowe Braswell; and her sister and brother-in-law, Delia and Chip Mobley of Statesboro; five aunts, Dianne Braswell Lamb (James) of Brunswick, Dale Braswell Holcombe (Kenny), Richmond Hill; Darlene Braswell Conley (David), Debbie Braswell Holcombe and Janice Rowe Holcombe (Mark) of Rincon; several cousins and many special friends.
    Visitation will be Sunday from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. at The Bridge Church, 745 Mason Road, Pembroke, GA 31321.
    The funeral service will be at 4 p.m. Sunday following the visitation, with the Rev. Lawrence Butler officiating.
    Pallbearers will be Lynn Parker, Teddy Parker, Brendan Padgett, Brent Conley, B.J. Parker and Ken Holcombe.
    Honorary pallbearers will be volunteers, board members and residents of Open Hearts Community Mission.
    Burial will be in Eldora Cemetery.
    In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to her son's college fund. Checks may be made payable to Wesley Bohannon College Fund and mailed to Edward Jones Investments at 43 Courtland Street, Statesboro, GA 30458. (912-489-8636).
    We will miss our mom's laughter, her jokes and pranks. She was our world and we were hers. Our sadness is great, but as Christians, we are left with a most precious assurance, the joy of knowing she is whole and well in heaven and that we will see her again one day.
