She loved spending time with friends and family, was a Bears, Yankees, Cubs, Fighting Illini and Nascar fan. Her back door was always open to anyone who wanted to come by to visit. The TV in her kitchen was always on, and if not tuned in to a sporting event, was dialed into the Food Network. She raised several Schnauzers over the years, and will be missed by her little buddy Linus.

Lisa is survived by her sister Patricia and friend, Steve Walker, Geneseo, brothers Ed (Michele), Cedar Falls, Iowa, and Steve (Heidi Parkhurst), Coal Valley, Illinois; five nieces and nephews, Cade and Madison McCann, Cedar Falls, Alison Tomczak (Doug), Naperville, Illinois, Michael McCann, Moline, and Darby Finnegan and friend Tyler Pitlik, also of Moline; and her special great-niece and nephew, Sadie and Owen Tomczak, Naperville, who always referred to her as “Aunt Lisa”. She is also survived by a fantastic circle of friends. She was preceeded in death by her parents.

The family wishes to express their thanks to the staff at Dr. Garneau’s office. A special thanks to the wonderful staff at Clarissa Cook for making Lisa’s last days on this earth so comfortable.
