Lisa was born on February 18, 1964 in Rochester. She was a proud graduate of Bishop Kearney High School. She worked at General Motors for 20 years where she met her husband, Frank. Most recently, she worked for the Brockport Central School District. She started in the High School cafeteria and then after hard work and determination, became a bus driver. She was an extremely dedicated worker and truly loved her job and each child she worked with. Lisa was very dedicated to her family. Family always came first to her. Her greatest joys in life were the birth of her three children Kristi, Alyssa, and Frankie and watching them grow and become the beautiful people they are today. She also found immense joy in the birth of her two grandsons, Jackson and Asher. Lisa’s love for animals was a life-long passion. She was heavily involved with local rescue agencies as well as larger scale missions like Empty the Tanks, where she and her family would go to Marineland to protest the captivity of animals. Lisa’s motto in life was “every living thing has a purpose.” She had the most beautiful smile with such a natural warmth to make anyone in her presence feel happy and loved.
