Sadly, we lost an angel on earth Friday May 31 2019 when Lisa Louise Portelli passed away comfortably at her home after courageously battling ALS.

Born in Newark, NJ, to Louis and Mary Izzo. Lisa graduated from Millburn High School, and went on to Edicott College in Beverly, MA, where she earned her teaching degree.

Her passion and dedication for teaching awarded her many accolades while serving the Paterson Public Schools for over 35 years. She wore "many hats" and became a mentor to all those around her. As we may have lost a beautiful person here on earth, heaven has certainly gained a sweet angel in heaven.

Lisa is survived by her loving husband Jim of 36 years; and her dear brothers Kenneth Izzo, and Jeffrey Izzo and his wife Lynda Tortoriello. She also leaves behind many loving family members, close friends, associates, and her cherished pets Diva, Bogart, Cooper, and Bronson.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Lisa’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital would be greatly appreciated.

Portelli,

I was so lucky to know you and work with you at School #1 (where we always went by last names...) We even shared an office for a time... I am sure your memory will be a blessing to all who knew you.

Love Infinitely,
Collucci
