Lisa Gay Culp Workman, age 44, of Springfield, Mo., formerly of Joplin, passed away at 3:10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, 2011, at Cox Medical Center South in Springfield, after a valiant battle with cancer.

Born April 19, 1967, in Joplin, she was a 1985 graduate of Parkwood High School and lived in the Springfield and Joplin areas all her lifetime. In 1990, she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Missouri Southern State University. In 1998, she received her Master of Science degree in Taxation from University of Tulsa, Okla. Effective April 18, 2007, Lisa was promoted to firm-wide director of tax services for BKD CPA and Advisors, only the third person in BKD history to hold this post. She was a member of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Joplin, and was actively attending Hope Community Church in Springfield. Lisa loved her three Yorkies, traveling and spending time with family and friends. She was active in the Joplin community, serving as a Board member for the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce and the Southwest Missouri Estate Planning Council.

On Oct. 3, 1998, she married Brian C. Workman at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Joplin. They just celebrated their 13th year together. He survives.

Additional survivors include a daughter, Madelyn Renée Workman, of the home; her mother, Dolores G. Culp, of Joplin; two brothers, Gary G. Culp and wife, Donna, of the Neosho, Mo. area and Mark A. Culp and wife, Connie, of San Diego, Calif.; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Her father, Gene G. Culp, preceded her in death.

She will be sadly missed by her family friends.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church Family Life Center with her brother, Gary G. Culp, minister, officiating. BKD employees and their families will be seated as a group. Interment will follow in Osborne Memorial Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday at Parker Mortuary.
