After having children, Lisa thoroughly enjoyed her time as a fulltime mother. She had a tremendous passion for life and brought an unparalleled level of enthusiasm and commitment to every project and initiative she participated in. She was heavily involved in her community, and actively fundraised at her children’s school, drove for Meals on Wheels for 10 years, a Girl Scout Troop Leader and coached cheerleading on the weekends. She loved vacationing to the New Jersey Shore and found beauty in all things wherever she went. Lisa enjoyed gardening, birdwatching, and was an animal lover. She was an avid learner – teaching herself how to needlepoint, knit and rug hook to name a few. Lisa loved playing in her tennis leagues; enjoyed the competition but above all, she loved the wonderful friendships she formed with her teammates.
