Lisa and Tim moved to Greenfield, IA in March 2000 and began a fifteen year career with Cardinal IG, Greenfield, IA. Lisa and Tim were married at their home on July 11, 2014.
While Lisa loved gardening, flowers, and yardwork, visits from her grandchildren brought her the most joy. She was an frequent poster to facebook and spent many hours playing Yahtzee. She could be found dancing around her house listening to music from the ‘70’s. From a pair of african grey parrots (Kizzy and Kunta), that would call her name and mimic her laugh, to the multitude of cats and dogs that were a constant part of her life, Lisa had a life long love of animals. She even got mad at Tim for preventing her from caring for a rat that had taken refuge in their garage. Lisa also had a passion for cooking and enjoyed frequent road trips with her husband.
