Lisa H. Oettlein, a lifelong resident of Rockland County, NY, began her journey to be with her Almighty Father, all the Angels and Saints on October 9, 2012. Lisa was surrounded by her loving family as she passed peacefully while residing at the Tolstoy Rehabilitation and Nursing Home in Valley Cottage, NY. Lisa was born on October 20, 1956 in Suffern, NY to Theresa and John Oettlein.
Lisa will be remembered for her love of family and especially her strong affection towards her nieces and nephews. Nothing made Lisa happier than family gatherings where she was frequently the center of attention. Lisa loved and enjoyed animals, bowling, needlepoint, movies, reading, board games, shopping and a good laugh. Lisa never asked for much in life, never complained, was never selfish and was content knowing she was loved by her family. She has taught all of us unconditional love.
Lisa is predeceased by her parents, Theresa and John Oettlein and brother-in-law, John Jacob. She leaves behind her sisters, Susan Kolwicz, Joanne Jacob, Claire (Karl) Hoermann, Lore (Wayne) Orchowski, Theresa (Albert) Kraml. Lisa will be forever missed by her loving nieces and nephews, Lara, John, Kirsten, Craig, Alex, Erik, Tyler, Emily, Erika and Kristin.
Family and friends may visit Lisa from 3-5 and 7-9 at the Wyman-Fisher Funeral Home in Pearl River, NY on Friday, October 12, 2012.
