Christy Lison Obituary
Christy Lison

Neenah - Christy (Lutz) Lison, age 68 of Neenah, passed away unexpectedly late Friday, July 6, 2018. She was born December 23, 1949 to Phyllis (Malek) Lutz and Herman Lutz in Torrance, California. She grew up in Manitowoc living with her mother and grandparents, August and Angeline Malek, and among her aunts, uncles, and cousins. As a young woman, Christy had a tight bond with her mother Phyllis, and was devastated when she passed suddenly in 1976.

Christy was a graduate of Manitowoc Lincoln High School, class of 1968. In high school she enjoyed being on the pom-pom squad and served as a life guard at a local swimming pool. She also graduated from UW-Oshkosh with a B.S. in Lower Elementary Education in 1972. In college she was on the synchronized swim team. While at UWO, she met the love of her life, Peter Lison. They married shortly after graduation and together had two children whom they raised in Neenah.

Christy worked as an Inside Sales Manager for two Neenah companies, Ameritel Corporation and then Bemiss-Jason. In 2015, she retired after many years of hard work.

What mattered most to her was her family. She was lovingly referred to as Nani by her grandchildren. She loved being in nature and had a soft-spot for animals. She will be remembered as a very compassionate person and was a constant student of nutrition, always researching and studying health and wellness, wanting to keep herself and her family well. Christy was a very spiritual woman with a strong faith, and was a member of St. Gabriel Catholic Church.

She is deeply loved and will be sadly missed by her husband, Peter; her children: Patricia "Trish" (Umer) Lison-Sheikh; and James "Jay" (Keali) Lison; her grandchildren: Peter Lison; Zakary Sheikh; Sophia Sheikh; Kiran Lison; and Violet Lison. She is further survived by her father-in-law, James Jay Lison, Jr., as well as by Peter's sisters and their families: Kathy O'Neill, Susan Armstrong, Joan Orchard; and by her aunts; Marion Malek and Joan Butz; and many of her cousins who she felt close to.

Christy was preceded in death by her parents and grandparents as well as by her mother-in-law, Marian Lison; and uncles: Arnie Malek; Jim Malek; Bill Butz; her aunt, Margaret Malek; and a cousin, Mike Butz.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Friday, July 13, 2018 at St. Gabriel Catholic Church, 900 Geiger St., Neenah. A visitation will be held at church from 9:30 A.M. until the hour of service.
