I am so saddened to learn of Lisa’s passing. I knew when I taught Kiera & Rowan at Parish Day School that Lisa was an exceptional mother,wife,class mom & a beautiful lady inside & out. I’ve missed talking with you all at Trinity. I will hold your beautiful family in prayer. I will always remember how special you are & your deep love for Our Lord. Your family will have you in their hearts forever.❤️

Lisa you were a light in an often dark world and have been a shining example of what it really means to love one another. Though, I’ll miss your bright smile and beautiful friendship I feel some comfort that you are no longer suffering. I can only hope to one day attain the grace I saw in your beautiful soul. Until we meet again, Dear Friend, I will always keep you and your family in my prayers.

We are so very sorry for your loss. Sending our deepest sympathy and prayers to the Psimas and Guskiewicz family. Lisa will be sorely missed. She was such a kind and beautiful person. We instantly became friends on the soccer sidelines. Wishing Rob and her children peace and comfort at this very difficult time.

Rob, there aren’t words that seem adequate right now. I just feel lucky to have known Lisa, especially during the beginning of your relationship. She was such an easy person to like and I loved when she called you ‘Psimas’ like the rest of us. She will be missed by many.
