Lisa Annette Blanton

Age 63, of Burton, passed away on June 21, 2024. In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place. Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family on Lisa’s Tribute Wall at
Lisa Annette Blanton was born on August 2, 1960 in Flint, Michigan, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles and Mary (Hager) Palmer. Lisa met James (Skip) Blanton in March of 1980 and they were married November 7, 1981. They shared 34 years of marriage until his death. They raised 2 daughters in Burton, MI. Lisa loved her family and most especially her 2 grand kids whom she was so proud of. She enjoyed the local country music scene and made many friends that way. Lisa also took great pride in her flower garden and especially her Peace rose bushes. She could often be found outside around her pool grilling hot dogs with her family or cooking a delicious meal for them. In the morning you would find her with her beloved poodles at her side and a warm cup of coffee that would be refilled all day.
Surviving Lisa are her two daughters; Nicole and husband, Chad Barr, Melissa Blanton, her grandson  Casey and granddaughter Brooklyn May as well as several cousins and nieces and nephews.
Lisa is preceded in death by her husband James (Skip), parents; Charles and Mary Palmer and brother Chuck Palmer.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    I am so blessed to have met Lisa. I first met her as one of my patients and then I became to know her as a friend. She will forever be in my heart and I will remember her fondly. Lisa had strong faith in Jesus and I know she is with him now dancing around and I know she will be waiting for me on the other side❤️❤️❤️
