She enjoyed her collection of classic movies while at the nursing home, including: Doris Day, Shirley Temple and Andy Griffith; her favorite was “The Gun in Betty Lou’s Handbag” and “Borrowed Hearts.”
She was a beautiful and sweet person with a heart of gold who loved everyone and always saw the good in people. A devout Christian, she enjoyed studying the bible and attending church. She also enjoyed family vacations to many places and enjoyed horseback riding, snorkeling, teaching pre-school children. Lisa loved her trip to Hawaii where she and her husband rode a motorcycle to the top of a volcano as well as the summers she spent in Hong Kong and Paris, France with her parents. Lisa also enjoyed reading, aerobics (her favorite instructor was Denise Austin) and nature walks to Mill Hollow with her husband Troy and her dogs. She was an animal lover who had many pets over the years including her cat Lucy that she adored. Lisa also volunteered at the Animal Protective League where she assisted with the cat room.
