Resident of Mountain View
After a courageous battle with cancer, Lisa passed away peacefully in her home with her devoted dog, Bear, by her side. She was born Lisa Lynn Canali in San Jose, CA, and was the beloved daughter of Gabriel and Beverly Canali, both deceased. Lisa is survived by her loving brother, Scott Canali, sister-in-law, Anita, and cherished nephew, Rob Canali, loving uncle Bob Miller, aunt Beth Miller, and her cousins Craig (Eva) and Rick (Julie) Miller and their children.
Lisa graduated from Homestead High and attended college at Chico State. She was an enthusiastic fan of the Giants, 49ers, and Bruce Springsteen. Lisa worked for many years as a legal and executive assistant in Silicon Valley and also made contributions to her family's business, an Ethan Allen showroom located in Mountain View, CA.
She is dearly missed by her family and friends, who will be invited to a private celebration of Lisa's life to be scheduled in early 2013.
