1956 ~ 2017
Margaret Lisa Borich Oliver was born on June 25, 1956 in Salt Lake City to Peter (Peppy) and Margaret Borich. She passed away on Saturday, October 28th of natural causes.
Lisa was raised in Bingham Canyon and as a young girl the family moved to Midvale. She attended and graduated from Hillcrest High School. Following graduation, she moved to Hawaii where she met and married the love of her life Forrest Oliver.
In Hawaii, they worked hard, enjoyed the local life style, made many lifelong friends and raised two loving children, Aaron and Erica. When the children were very young, the family moved to Sandy, Utah to be close to her large family (The Serbo-Croatian Nation). In Utah, they worked, made many friends and raised their children.
She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Dana (Ron) Wood and husband Forrest. Lisa is survived by her children Aaron and Erica, two sisters Sandy (Bob) Ulery and Mike (Louie) Cononelos, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins and their children.
Lisa was kind, strong willed and opinionated on political issues. She was a loving mother, aunt and friend and kind to everyone she met.
A celebration of her life will be held this weekend for immediate family and friends. Because of her love of people and animals, the family requests that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to an appropriate charity.

Lisa was a force of nature. Fun, a contagious laugh, smiles in her eyes. Smart and always someone you could go to for help. The world has lost a good person. Aloha Lisa.

Lisa was one of my first friends when I moved to Hawaii and knew no one. She and Forrest were such fun people. Both made the world better and passed way too young. I'll miss her smile and laughter but remember her fondly forever.

Lisa was such a bright spot in life, whether I met her at work or someplace else. I'm so grateful to have had her influence in my life.

Oh I loved Lisa so much! I had the pleasure of working with her years ago. I will always remember her kindness and her willingness to help anyone. She could always make a yummy lunch out of almost nothing, and she always made enough to share. She was such a hard worker. She was a friend to everyone. Beautiful inside and out. She was a part of my Robers Craftstore Family that I will cherish forever. I love you Lisa. Thanks for everything.
