They loved to play together, for many summers they would set up a large slip and slide in their backyard and invite the neighborhood kids over and share in the fun. In 2007, they moved to a farm in rural Independence. Lisa and Scott were sure to take advantage and teach their boys how to work on the farm, and many lessons were learned. Lisa spent countless hours supporting her boys in the many 4-H activities they participated in.

Lisa’s life revolved around her boys. She loved taking care of them and watching them grow into who they are. Whether it was cheering them on in their sporting events, supporting them in their 4-H events, or sharing a smile and laughter while having fun; she was there for them with her whole heart.
