Lisa was a unique and wonderful person.  She touched the lives of all who knew her. Lisa lived a full life, always embracing each day as a new adventure.  She was a warrior, fighting till the very end.  Lisa loved her family more than anything.  Her son, Jacob was her pride and joy.  She spent most of her life putting other people first.  She was a hard worker and loved her job as a medical assistant.  She loved and genuinely cared for her patients.

Lisa had a passion for music and art.  She loved movies and reading.  She was an avid animal lover and believed we are all related.  Lisa loved to laugh.  She could find humor in any situation.  Lisa believed in many things, she had a strong faith in God and believed we all had a purpose on this earth.

Lisa always said to “live life to the fullest, and not care what other people think about you.” She believed we are all made of star dust and one day we will all be together again in a wonderful new place.  Lisa loved the stars and the moon, the Fall and the Wind, the beach and the desert.  She loved nature and the universe.  Lisa will forever be greatly missed.  We will miss her beautiful smile and her blue eyes that could stare right through you.  The heavens wept the day she left this earth, for this world lost one of it’s brightest souls, her light will shine on forever in our hearts and minds.
