She graduated from high school in Sheboygan Falls, WI. in 1951 and continued her education at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, majoring in French.

She always wanted to the see the world and so she did by train, plane, auto, bus, tramp steamer, thumb and shoe leather. She started out by visiting the mountains of the west where she ended up teaching school in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. She also worked in Los Alamos, NM, Chicago and New York. Her big stop was Paris, where she took “au pair” jobs to improve her French. Later on in life she spent two years teaching English as a second language in the middle of China.

Lisa was always very compassionate of all people. She worked in many resettlement programs supplying housing and other needs for homeless people from WWll and other conflicts. One in Austria, and another was in Algeria where she met her husband Giuseppe (Dante) Citarelli.

They were married at the Italian Consulate on August 6, 1966, in Tangier, Morocco.

Dante’s work took him many places, including Iraq, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia. They bought an old farmhouse in Collevecchio, Italy, northeast of Rome, so that they would have a home base.

They had three sons, Ben, born in England, and Matteo and Lorenzo were born in Morocco. Lisa and the boys returned to the U.S. when Dante’s jobs didn’t provide living facilities for families, and the boys attended school in Sheboygan Falls, WI. at various times.

Lisa was preceded In death by her parents, her husband, Dante, in 1991, brothers-in-laws Frank Novak, Marvin Tinkle, Roberto Citarelli, Mario Citarelli, Antonio Citarelli and sister-in-law, Mira Citarelli.
