With family by her side, Lisa passed away peacefully in her sleep after a courageous five year battle with cancer. With Christmas being her favourite holiday, it is only fitting that she would want to be remembered at this time of year. She leaves her strength in her husband Cliff and her sons Adam (Rachel) and Daniel.
Also left to cherish her memory are her two sisters Diana and Cathy, two brothers Adam Jr. (Diane) and Larry, parents-in-law Manfred and Marianne Fabig and sister-in-law Michelle.
Predeceased by her parents Adam Sr. (1972) and Carol (2005) Kolteski, and her brother-in-law Paul (2015).
Lisa was born and raised in Winnipeg, and attended Garden City Collegiate. Until her diagnosis in 2013, she worked in the executive office of the Gauthier Automotive Group.
The family expresses their sincerest gratitude to the doctors and nurses at CancerCare Manitoba, and the doctors, nurses and staff at the Riverview Health Centre Palliative Care Unit 3 East. You are all very special people, thank you.
Respecting Lisa’s wish cremation has already taken place and a celebration of life will be held on Thursday, December 20, at 11:00 a.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street.
In lieu of flowers, donations to CancerCare Manitoba or the Riverview Health Centre Foundation would be appreciated.
