One of her earliest jobs was at Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma WA. She had a lifelong love of caring for all animals. Her beloved pets are her dog Daisy and her cats Kitty, Bandit and Peppy. Lisa retired from WSU in 2012. This allowed her time to pursue her passionate love for her Lord Jesus Christ, going on mission trips to Mexico with her friends and missionaries, Sonya and Victor Mayoral. She taught Middle Sunday School class at Palouse Federated Church and volunteered at Care Net of the Palouse. She enjoyed serving meals at church taking meals to friend’s homes and inviting people over for dinner. She is a passionate cook that always made an effort to use organic ingredients in hope of promoting a healthier lifestyle for her friends and family. It brought her great joy to be able serve others and witness to the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Lisa enjoyed camping on the St. Joe River with family, rock collecting, traveling, raising a strictly organic non-GMO garden, fellowshipping with other Christians, especially spending time with her friends, family and her cherished nephews and niece. She loved volunteering, fishing and felt that learning something new daily was important for personal growth. It brought her great joy to give her time, love, and important possessions to people she thought would enjoy them.
Lisa had a huge heart that always thought of others first. She will be missed by everyone who knew her, especially her husband and family.
