Lisa moved to a farm in South Dakota with her family when she was an infant where she spent most of her childhood. She attended school at Moritz District No. 33 and after high school, she attended beauty school in Sioux Falls. Shortly after finishing cosmetology school, Lisa moved to Stockton, California, where she met her first husband and later gave birth to two of her children. Lisa’s family was a close knit one growing up and through adulthood. They all stayed close and some of her greatest pleasures were spending time with her siblings and sharing the joys of their growing families throughout the years. Lisa later met her second husband in Stockton and together they had a third child. She loved to dance, loved listening to music, reading, horses, and her special kittens throughout the years and she liked to see different places. She also lived in Oregon and New Mexico and spent the last 13 years in Arizona. Lisa has a special group of friends at work who love her like family. Wherever Lisa was, she enjoyed the simple pleasures of life and made many friends throughout the years that were dear to her. Lisa’s family was and will always be the center of her life.
