Lisa Kaczmarczyk (Dow)
Lisa Kaczmarczyk (Dow), 50, passed peacefully on Saturday, September 4th 2021 surrounded by family. Lisa was a strong advocate for and involved mother to her beautiful daughter Regina. She loved watching Regina's volleyball games and always made time to create special memories with her daughter. Lisa found joy gardening and creating a beautiful environment for her family. She adored Brian, her husband of almost 20 years, and enjoyed baking Christmas cookies, making s'mores over a fire, and dancing in the kitchen. Lisa was always busy—she assisted teaching religious education on Sundays, volunteered at her daughter's school whenever she could and was always there to help a neighbor in need. Lisa was a 1989 graduate of St. Charles High School in St. Charles, IL.
Lisa loved to spend time with her sister Tina Schwanebeck (Dow), brother-in-law Steve, and nieces Carli and Cami, spending time outdoors together. Everyone enjoyed Lisa's contagious, energetic laugh and her smile.
Lisa's mother, Jean Dow (Motz), aunts, uncles, and countless other family members, always held a special place in her heart. Not only did she feel supported and loved, but she enjoyed holidays, dinners, and fun times with all of them.
She loved spending time with the numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews whether it was at family reunions, weddings, or just hanging out for the weekend. Though introduced by marriage, she felt accepted and loved as she was able to be her authentic, true self.
Lisa was preceded in death by her father George Dow and her grandparents.

I have such great memories of Lisa from highschool, Marilyn's, then many years later my daughter coached Regina in volleyball. She was always such a kind and smiley person. My heart goes out to her family and I know Regina will make her mom proud up in heaven.
