Obituary

WATCH LIVE FUNERAL STREAM HERE (12 NOON MDT)

Lisa Mitchell Diquattro left this earth on the morning of May 8, 2022—Mother’s Day. She was released from the pain and suffering brought on by liver failure due to cancer. She fought valiantly for almost eight years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014. But more importantly, she lived a life of determination and was motivated to be strong no matter what obstacles life presented to her. She was a champion and example of faith to all who knew her, particularly her family. Lisa was a devout member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but more importantly she was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ.

Lisa was born on Easter Sunday, April 10, 1955, to Don Jarvis Mitchell and Lois Bybee in Boise, Idaho. She lived most of her life on a farm. She lived in Madras, Oregon until she was ten years old and then the family moved to Basin City, Washington. Her father was a hard worker and she was very involved in various duties on the farm during her youth. Lisa attended and graduated from high school in Basin City.

After graduation her parents supported her in attending college at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. That is where she met her future eternal companion, Steve Diquattro. Lisa married Steve on April 23, 1977 in the Oakland Temple. After their marriage Lisa supported Steve in his final year at BYU by working as a secretary for the Department of Information and Library Sciences in the Harold B. Lee Library on campus. Lisa gave birth to their first child, Brannon Lee, on April 6, 1978. A few weeks later Steve graduated with his degree in Computer Science and they were off to San Diego, CA for Steve’s first job.

After two years in San Diego they moved to Portland, OR where Steve had accepted another job with better pay and in a more affordable location. That is where they were able to purchase their first home. They lived there for over thirteen years. During that time Lisa gave birth to her other three children: Kyle Steven, Deidre Anne and Sean Cameron. Lisa served in various capacities in her ward including a counselor in the Relief Society, Primary teacher and Primary President. She was put in leadership positions at a relatively young age which helped shape her and gave her early experience for future callings.

Another job offer for Steve brought the family to Orem, UT and later Pleasant Grove, UT. Once again Lisa was honored to serve in the Relief Society at different times as president, counselor and instructor. She also served as a primary teacher. Lisa had a passion for teaching and dedicated herself to study and prayer for every lesson she taught. She used that same passion when asked to speak in her church services.

Lisa was blessed with many talents besides a gift for teaching. She was an accomplished seamstress and spent many years sewing different things as gifts to others. She loved to paint, including tole painting and water colors. She had a creative knack for decorating all things within the home. Above all else, Lisa’s priority was her family. She loved her children and adored her grandchildren. She has left a hole our hearts but that will be temporary as we know that she has been made whole now and has returned to that God who gave her life and is reunited with loved ones who have gone before. Lisa was preceded in death by her father, Don Jarvis Mitchell, and sister, Janet Mitchell. She is survived by her husband, Steve Diquattro; her children, Brannon Diquattro, Kyle Diquattro, Deidre Gibb (Matt) and Sean Diquattro (Amanda); twelve grandchildren: Samantha Diquattro, Sydni Diquattro, Hayden Diquattro, Serra Diquattro, Sophie Diquattro, Kollin Diquattro, Hadley Diquattro, Cayman Gibb, Vienna Gibb, Evia Gibb, Juno Gibb and Gracie Diquattro; her mother, Lois Bybee Mitchell; and siblings, Diane Wheeler (Paul), Don Mitchell (Nadine), Darwin Mitchell (Missy) and Blair Mitchell (Janae).
