I worked with Lisa at Network Photography. She always had a smile and was willing to work whenever and wherever she was needed. She was genuinely a nice person. The world needs more people like her. I am glad I knew Lisa. Prayers for the family. Erin Rothe Parbs

I was blessed with knowing Lisa for over 20 years. Lisa was much loved as a friend, a colleague, and a nurse by so many people she touched. Lisa and I spent many years together at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and worked closely during her time with the Herma Heart Institute Research Team. Lisa had a unique gift for engaging with children and families during very stressful times and helping them to feel safe. Her empathy for the young patients she cared for was unparalleled and was especially valued by their parents and families. Lisa always had a positive attitude and took on any task with willingness and a smile. She was a valued member of many teams and made important contributions to care, research and publications. Lisa will not be forgotten. She will be missed.
With heartfelt sympathy to all of you who loved her,
Kathy Mussatto
