Lisa's lifelong work ethic began when her mother passed away when Lisa was only 7 yrs old.
Lisa took on the role of caregiver to her younger siblings. When Lisa first came to the U.S. she worked as a domestic engineer. She later worked as a Chef for Scholz's Hofbrau. Lisa will be remembered for her kind and giving spirit and unconditional love. She acted as a "mother" to many. She was a long-time member of the German-American Club of Albany, where she was past President of the Ladies Auxillary. She loved sitting on her back deck watching the birds, listening to her music with the love of her life, Willi. You knew that you'd made it into the "family" if you received one of her hundreds of hand crocheted blankets. She took great pride in cooking for and caring for her family, always remembered birthdays and generally just enjoyed giving love to her friends and family.
Calling hours will be held on Friday, June 18, 2021 from 4-7pm at New Comer Cremations & Funerals, 343 New Karner Rd., Colonie, NY 12205. Interment will be held on June 19, 2021 at 11:00am at the Scholz Family Cemetery in East Berne, NY.
