Lisa Marie Bane Slomka, 60, passed away Tuesday, February 7, 2023, at her home in Dublin.  She graduated from Pulaski County High School in 1981, was employed with H. H. Hunt Corporation in Accounts Payable and attended First Dublin Presbyterian Church.  Lisa was preceded in death by her father, Harvey Randall Bane, her former husband Joseph Thomas Slomka, Jr., and their son who was the light of her life, Joseph Thomas Slomka, III (Joey).

Lisa’s bright light and big heart has left us way too soon.  She will always be remembered for her loving and caring nature and her sense of humor.  She never met a stranger and always enjoyed sharing a funny story or a joke.  Lisa treasured the little moments in life; especially times with her mom at Kroger on “coupon days” and day trips with her sisters. She was happiest when she had the opportunity to celebrate life events with her family and friends.  She also cherished her fur babies; Blaize, Sneezie, Pearl, and Minnie.  Lisa loved God, her fiancé, her family, and her friends deeply and is now reunited in heaven with her dad and her son, Joey, whom she missed so much.

She is survived by her fiancé, Cecil “Buck” Ratliff; mother, Barbara Reed Bane; sisters, Sandra White and Patricia Johnson (Jerry); nieces, Amanda Hall (Brian) and Alyson Chrisley (Sabrina); nephew, Steven White (Nichole); great nephews, Rhys and Coen White; great niece, Keelyn Hall; and many other relatives and friends.

The family will receive friends from 1 until 2 p.m. on Monday, February 13, 2023, at First Dublin Presbyterian Church.  Funeral services will begin at 2 p.m. with Pastor Mary Ann Armbrister officiating.  Interment will follow in Highland Memory Gardens.

Flowers will be accepted or donations may be made to: First Dublin Presbyterian Church, 409 Church St., Dublin, VA  24084 or The Compassionate Friends of Roanoke Valley, 2408 Electric Rd., Cave Spring, VA  24018

Lisa and her family are in the care of Mullins Funeral Home & Crematory in Radford.
