Lisa Ann Widlund-Diaz

Lisa Ann Widlund-Diaz, age 64, of Hatfield, Arkansas, passed away on Saturday, February 17, 2024, at her home. She was born on August 14, 1959, to Shirley Jean English of Arlington, Texas.

At a very young age Lisa moved to southern California to be raised by her aunt and uncle after the passing of her mother. During her childhood she developed a passion for horses and enjoyed riding them along the beach. After graduation from Marina Highschool in 1977, she took an interest in raising Egyptian Arabian horses and starting a horse-breeding business, which she named “Antiquity Farms”.

In 2004, after both of her children had left to serve in the Air Force, Lisa moved with her horses from Aguanga, California, to Hatfield, AR, to enjoy the peace and quiet and continue pursuing her business and expanding her legacy. To this day she has pedigrees recorded in various online breed registries.

Lisa was a strong, intellectual woman, with a sentimental heart and a delightful sense of humor to match. She will be laid to rest alongside her mother, Shirley.

Lisa is survived by her son, Austin Diaz of Beaumont, California; and her daughter, Geneva Diaz of San Antonio, Texas.

Services are planned for Saturday March 23, 2024, at 10:00 am at Moore Funeral Home and Memorial Gardens in Arlington, Texas. Cremation arrangements are entrusted to Bowser Family Funeral Home in Mena, Arkansas.
