This is Lisa's daughter, Mariah. I just wanted to let everybody know that while driving to work, she was swept away in the river. She had been missing since yesterday at 6 a.m. but this morning, firefighters found her body in her car. She was the best person I know. She was also more than a fantastic wife and mother, the best any of us could ask for.

Oh Mariah, you and your family have been on my mind all day. I am so very, very sorry and heartbroken over your loss. I never had the joy of meeting your mother in person, but we shared many emails. Please know my husband and I are praying for you all, for the peace only God can give.

My sincerest condolences for the sudden catastrophic loss of your Mother.

The loss of such creativity diminishes us all, but her work does remain: memory made tangible. I doubt that it is much consolation to you and your family at this stage but perhaps, at some later time, you may take comfort in the knowledge that many stitchers continue to bring Lisa Roswell's vision into actual being with needle, thread and linen.

I am heartbroken by this news. I only met Lisa once, at a cross-stitch club meeting, but I was so impressed by her warm, creative spirit. Such a bright talent! Such a big heart! I'm grief-stricken for you and your family, Mariah. Peace to you....

I can't imagine the loss of your Mom for your family - as she must have been the heart and soul of your home. Look at how many people whose lives she has touched - through her work as a nurse, her work as a designer, and as a friend to so many.
We're all so saddened and her loss will be felt by so many in the needlework industry. We were inspired by her creativity.
