Lisa was a 1976 graduate of Hoopeston High School in Illinois. She was a teacher’s aide at Rossville Elementary where she worked since 2001. Her love for her family, friends, and dogs was apparent in everything she did.  She took pride in her home, working in her yard and flower beds, and enjoyed being outside. She loved playing the piano and singing at Rossville Bible Fellowship. She was known for her sense of humor, was never afraid to laugh out loud or make a joke, and always knew how to be the light in any room she entered.
