Roys in 1941. They raised two children, Lee and Lynn.

The family did lots of camping in Eastern Washington, wherever there were good fishing lakes. She and Hal did some traveling, to Europe, Hawaii, Florida, and California. After Hal passed away in 1987, she still enjoyed her gardening until she moved to a condo in Edmonds.

Lissette was the first neighbor to welcome me into my new condo 20 years ago. She continued to be one of my favorite friends through the years. What a darling lady with a great sense of humor....we had some really great laughs together.
