Obituary

Mrs. Lissette M. James, age 37, of Metairie, Louisiana passed away in Alexandria, Louisiana on Sunday, January 27, 2019.

She was born December 18,1981 in Manhattan, NY. She was a graduate of Temple University in Philadelphia, PA with a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education. She was an educator in Onslow County, NC, Rapides and Jefferson Parish, LA. On June 25, 2005 she married Joseph Gregory James in Jacksonville, NC. Together, they have three children. She enjoyed cooking, baking, hosting, trips to the beach (even having to be rescued at sea), crab legs and any type of seafood, working on science projects with her nephews, however, hated being barefoot in the grass! What she loved the most was spending time with her family! Her husband said it best, "Lissette didn't lose anything, she didn't lose a battle, she won Christ, she won life and her reward is heaven".

Preceded in death by her birth mother, Ana Milady Diaz; father and mother-n-love, Joel Ashley and Rachel Joyce James and nephew, Ryan O'Neal Foxworth
