Lisa Denise Kesler of Corydon, KY  passed away Monday, December 12, 2022 in Evansville,IN.  She was born in Sullivan, Mo by the late Floyd Charles Belfield and Gladys Head. She was raised in Carmi, IL by her late loving parents Malcolm and Betty Robison of Carmi, IL. 

A loving mother and homemaker, Lisa was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, most especially over the holidays. For many years leading up to her passing, she collected a large library of cookbooks and would often give them to her daughter in laws. So, they could prepare her amazing dishes as well. Lisa loved to shop for her children and grandchildren. When she wasn’t cooking or shopping she was making beautiful homemade crafts for her family. Lisa loved spending time with her husband and their dog hersey. Lisa and Bill loved to travel out of state, take camping trips, and ride their motorcycle for hours making new memories everywhere she went and with whomever she was with. 

In recent years, Lisa was fighting a very hard battle with her health. Her husband, Bill Kesler lovingly cared for her in the last 12 years of her life. Even though she was fighting a very courageous and exhausting battle, she still made time to call, text or video chat with her children and grandchildren on an almost daily basis. Lisa was always full of wise and kind words. She loved hard and even prayed harder. Anyone that was blessed to receive her love knew how lucky they were. Leading up to her passing, Lisa made sure to shop for her entire family’s Christmas gifts, dragging Bill into every store she could in a day’s time. Even though she did not feel well, she wanted to make sure EVERYONE had a gift to open on Christmas day. Lisa was that kind of woman, no one was ever left out or would leave her house hungry.She would come to your house and insist on cooking and cleaning for you while she was supposed to be on vacation relaxing. Lisa loved when all her children and grandchildren were in the same place.Even though in recent years it only happens a couple times of year, these were the moments that kept her fighting and never giving up.  She truly loved being a wife, mother, and most importantly grandmother. Throughout her life, Lisa Kesler was referred to in many ways. Her favorite name by far to be called was grandma. She was always sharing her grandchildren’s pictures and telling everyone she knew about all the great things they were doing in their everyday life. 

Even though she had many different reasons to be sad in life, and where many would have given up. Lisa chose to get up and fight everyday, with Bill by her side every step of the way.  Lisa struggled over the years with the idea that there were family members she had never met.  She spent the better part of the last 4 years researching her ancestry. She was able to find and reunite with many sisters, brothers, cousins, nieces and nephews. With a growing family, Lisa wanted nothing more for everyone to meet her children and grandchildren. There is peace in knowing that this will finally happen in honor of Lisa. Lisa truly believed nothing would take away our memories, so there is solace in knowing her loved ones have many great memories with her.

Her children and grandchildren would like to thank Bill for the love and care he showed her throughout the years. Even though we know at times it was not easy, he never gave up on her.  Lisa’s children will forever be grateful to Bill for the way he showed his love for her every day of every year they were together. Lisa was Bill’s babygirl and he made sure to let everyone know it, with his words and even more so his actions. 

Lisa is preceded in death by her birth parents, adopted loving parents, and granddaughter Omunique Fetcher. Lisa is survived by her Husband Bill Kelser, Children Allen Fetcher and wife J’Nia, Jason Fetcher, Ben Fetcher, and Alex Fetcher and wife Paige. Grandchildren Quenton Fetcher, Mikisha Taylor, Serenity Fetcher, Bailey Fetcher, Se’Ria Fetcher, Gabriel Kai Fetcher and Winter Fetcher.

Please in Lieu of flowers we would like plants for her children and grandchildren to nurture and watch grow for many years in remembrance of their beloved mom and grandma.
