Lisa was born and raised in Dayton, OH. She attended Trotwood school, then attended city of Miamisburg school. She became a mother at a young age and continued to persevere to provide the best life possible for her family. She worked hard her whole way through college while caring for 4 small children. Lisa received her RN and loved caring for others, it was her passion. Lisa also followed in her daddy’s footsteps and shared his same love for real estate. She continued her education and became a licensed real estate agent along with all her other duties. Lisa met her husband Oscar while working as a bookkeeper at a local restaurant. It was love at first sight. They have spent almost 30 years growing and creating their life together. They enjoyed every adventure with each other including vacations, holidays, weekend getaways, and just spending precious time with their family and friends. You could always count on having a great time at the Lopez household. They opened their door to anyone and Lisa always treated everyone like they were part of her family.
Lisa loved life and lived every second for her family, a true matriarch. Lisa’s smile would brighten any room she would walk into. Her laugh would put a smile on everyone's face. She had a kindness that others could only dream of and was always there for anyone in need. She was a true angel on Earth and is missed deeply by all who knew her.
