Lisa was born August 2, 1966 in Sacramento, CA, and then grew up in various states across the country including California, Texas, Ohio, Alaska, and Montana. She graduated Great Falls High School in 1988, and was in the first class of special needs students that graduated from the high schools (GFH). Lisa joined Cascade County Aging Services when she was 19. She continued to work for them over the years as a dishwasher and a shredder. She was still working for them at the time of her death. Lisa joined Easter Seals over 20 years ago doing piece work. She was also still part of Easter Seals. She was waiting to get stronger to go see her friends and the Easter Seals staff again. She will miss them all greatly.
Lisa loved to bowl and was part of the Cerebral Palsy bowling league for over 20 years. She also loved Special Olympics and was currently a member of the Great Falls Hornets Special Olympics Team. Lisa participated in various events, basketball, track & field, bocce ball, and powerlifting. She also danced for the Orange Ballet Co.
Lisa never met a stranger. She made friends wherever she went. Her smile and energy would light up any room. She loved to sing "You Are My Sunshine". Each day you see the sunshine think of her, as she will be looking down on you smiling. We miss you baby girl! You are now free of the wheelchair and meds - welcome to your new home with Jesus, Mom, Dad, and the rest of our family. We love you!
