She had also built dollhouses for sale in the 1980’s. She loved all animals, especially her cats, dogs and ducks. She took in rescues throughout her life and also supported no-kill shelters. As a young girl she enjoyed horse-back riding. She had wild, but domesticated ducks named, Daisy, Anna and Pete. The ducks lived by or on her property.
She called herself a Yankee Maniac. She collected Yankees memorabilia and rarely missed Spring Training in Florida. Lisa loved the coast and the ocean. She loved Cocoa Beach and she collected lighthouses. She loved to go clamming at Cedar Key, Florida and to fish off Florida’s many piers.
A very artistic, sensitive and hospitable person, she loved many kinds of music, but especially 1980s Rock and Broadway Show tunes. Lisa was active in the Chickasaw Ridge Homeowners Association for over 20 years, serving on its board of directors.
She had an AA in Accounting from Valencia College, Orlando and her work was often based in fund raising. She worked at LaAmistad, a home for troubled children and the Medical Eye Bank in Orlando which provided cornea tissue to assist the blind. She enjoyed her work at Musak and Advertising on Hold, creatively writing copy for commercial on-hold messages. She retired in 2015 from Del-Air in Sanford, FL.
Lisa had a great sense of humor and was most happy at home with her cat Jade while enjoying her neighbors.
