Lisa Ann Sport Herrington

February 8, 2021

Lisa Ann Sport Herrington, 54, of Molino, FL, died February 5 after a brief illness.

Born in Atlanta, GA, on December 26, 1967, Lisa graduated from Tate High School in 1986 and was well known as a local hair stylist for 30 years, working most recently at Mane Street Styles in Pensacola. Known for her laughter, generosity, and kind hearted spirit, Lisa’s family was the light of her life, and she was most content when spending time with them. She embraced her newest role as grandmother to the twin granddaughters with joy and vitality.

Lisa grew up in Pinewoods Presbyterian Church of Cantonment, but in recent years was an active member of First Baptist Church, where she sang in the choir.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John “Buddy” and Elizabeth “Betty” Sport. She is survived by her husband, Scott Herrington, two daughters, Amanda Jenkins and Tori Herrington, a son, Scott Herrington, and four grandchildren, Bailey, Alliana, Atalie and Wyatt. Also surviving are her brothers, Mercer Sport (Jean) of Cantonment and Lewis Sport (Paula) of St. Augustine, FL, as well as numerous nieces and nephews: Haleigh Sport, Hunter Sport, Tanner Sport, Heather Sport Bowman (Noah), Tavi Sport, Matthew Fraser (Ainsley) and Christopher Fraser.

The family will receive guests at a visitation February 13 at 12:30 p.m. at Pinewoods Presbyterian Church in Cantonment, followed by a celebration of her life at 2:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Covenant Care.

    I was so sorry to hear about Lisa. She’s been my hairdresser for a long time and I considered her a very kind hearted person and a friend. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren. I will truly miss her.
