Lisa was a graduate of Vanlue High School. She had been attending both the Lighthouse Pentecostal Church of Carey and the Bridgeport Church in Dunkirk.

She worked for years at the Elks Lodge, in catering and management. She loved being in this line of work with her serving heart.

Lisa loved her family and friends more than life itself. Those that knew her, know what a huge heart she had. She had a great sense of humor that would leave you laughing. Lisa loved the lord and had accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Her faith in God carried her through the toughest and darkest times in her life. She will be greatly missed.
