Barbara Ann “Babs” (Baldwin) Lisko

Barbara Ann “Babs” (Baldwin) Lisko, 64, of Slovak, peacefully passed away on Thursday, February 20, 2020.  Babs was born January 21, 1956 in Little Rock, Arkansas.  She was the daughter of Carlee Baldwin and Virginia Nell (Sample) Wood.  She was preceded in death by her parents and sisters, Connie (Baldwin) Lopez and Cindy Baldwin Lozano (Bill).

Babs lived her young life in the Hazen and Lonoke areas before moving to California.  She graduated from Western High School in Anaheim.  She moved back to Little Rock soon after graduation.  Babs married Freddie Lisko of Slovak in February of 1979.  They have four children, Jennifer Holzhauer (Blake) of Fayetteville, Arkansas, Katie Madden (Matt) of Dyersburg, Tennessee, Brian Lisko (Ellen) of Hazen and Zach Lisko of Florence, Alabama.  She has 4 grandchildren, Landon, Emerson, Lucy and Avery; 3 step grandchildren, Clayton, Tyler and Stella all of whom adored their Granny.  Babs is also survived by her brother, Dennis Baldwin of Siloam Springs, and Jimmy Harris (Tina) of Shenandoah Junction, West Virginia; several brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Babs was a member of Sts. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church in Slovak where she was involved with the Altar Society, flower Committee, and Catechism.  She was a great cook and a wonderful florist.  Babs loved the Lord and her family above all.  She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.  Anyone that knew her was blessed because she loved so many like her own.  There is no doubt that Heaven gained a special angel.

Visitation will be Sunday, February 23, from 4:00 to 6:00 at Sts. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church in Slovak. Rosary will follow.  Funeral services will be Monday, February 24 at 10:00 A.M. at Sts. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church with burial to follow.

The family would like any memorials to be made to Sts. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church.

    Cant express enough for what all this grest lady helped me with when I was young. I was blessed to live up the road and babysit the girls. She was so good to me. I remember her always having Freddies supper ready when he came in from the fields. I loved her and this part of my family dearly. May you rest in peace sweet lady.

    I had the privilege of serving as the mailman for Freddie and Babs Lisko from 1989 to 1996. They were always courteous and helpful so it was a joy to get to see them from time to time. Our thoughts and prayers continue for this wonderful family. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance in this time of sorrow. Billy and Gail Booth
