Lisa was born in Danville, IL in August 1964 and is the daughter of Gloria Miller living in Somersworth, NH and granddaughter of Illa Horshauer living in Danville, IL. Lisa has two brothers, Jerry Shelato of Somersworth, NH, and Rob Miller of Long Island and a sister, Melissa (Shelato) and her husband Mike Hillard of Bismarck, IL.

Lisa is predeceased by her father Brian Shelato of Danville, IL and her step-father Roger Miller of Somersworth, NH and predeceased by her mother-in-law (who she simply adored), Patricia Peaslee of Gainesville, FL. Lisa always knew how to make a room brighter and make people laugh when she entered, and was loved by so many, including her longtime friends: Jodi & Dan Duncheon (IL), Michele Burns (NH), Debbie & Dave McCann (NH), Debbie & Mark Miller (NH), Carl & Diane Gomez (IL), Debbie Cheek (FL), Cindy & Anthony Volpe (FL), Peggy Gangemi (FL) and Judy & Bob Sikorski (NY). Lisa also loved her two pet dogs and three cats. Lisa loved to travel, and some of her favorite vacation spots were walking on Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota with family and friends, watching the leaves change color in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, going to Key West, Bar Harbor, San Francisco, Atlantic City, Cape Cod, Niagara Falls, Novia Scotia, St Augustine, Savannah, New York City and eventually talking her husband into going on a cruise to the Bahamas just 6 months before she passed. Lisa had the rare opportunity to go on a US Navy nuclear submarine while sitting in the sonar room on a dependents cruise that submerged in the Long Island sound and fly on an Air Force KC-135 and sit in the pilot chair while flying on a refueling mission with her husband Vinny. Lisa will be dearly missed every single day and will always remain close to our hearts. May she rest in peace. We love you Lisa always and forever!!

I miss you terribly, but I know you will always be watching over me, my gaurdian angel. When it rains, I know you are near me. I'm so proud that you fought so hard just so you could stay a little while longer with us. You are free now Mom!!
**You were there for my first breath, and i was there for your last.**
I will hold you close to my heart and think of you often.
We Love You!

I love you now and forever my beautiful wife! I miss you so much, but I know you are always looking over my shoulder to guide me in the right direction. You are an angel now, so fly free to peace and eternity. We will be together whenever I hear or play "Open Arms" by Journey. That was and will always be our song to each other.
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!
