Her Husband, Mitch, remembers the moments he fell in love with her;
They had been dating 6 months and he was in her garage fixing something for her and of course playing his music to loud. She came in, locked eye contact with him. He thought he was in trouble. Walking across the floor to him, she reached the radio and turned the volume up louder.
Mitch says she was his girlfriend for 30 years, roommate for 29 and Wife for 28 years.
Lisa requested to be cremated and her remains mixed with the remains of the 23 animals she and Mitch shared during their 30 years together. Included is her pony, Polly, who Mitch shipped from Maine to Colorado to seal the deal and make her his forever. There are locations in Maine and Jamaica Mitch and Daughter Autumn will spread Mom at her request.
Her Daughter, Autumn, was born August 24, 2002. She was an awesome Mother and with all her other roles; Daughter, Sister, Niece, Aunt, Daughter-in-law, Grand-daughter and Wife.
Autumn remembers her Mother;
She has always thought of her Mom as a role model and is very proud to call Lisa her Mother. Autumn will always cherish her memories with her Mom. She is very proud of her mother and her ability to have been able to fight for a long as she did but Autumn knew it was her time to go.
