LISA GREEN

Our beloved Lisa passed away peacefully and comfortably Friday afternoon, November 19, 2021 after a long illness, with her loving husband Darrell at her side holding her hand.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband Darrell; mother Hilda; aunt Cathy; sister Tara (Dan); niece Jordan, whom she adored; as well as uncles and cousins, with a special acknowledgement to cousin Darryl, for his daily messages of prayerful support. She will also be sadly missed by her husband's brother Colin and his family.
Lisa was fortunate to grow up in a loving family, treated to many vacations, summers at the lake and countless fun experiences. She cultivated a large circle of friends, who are also grieving her loss.
Lisa faced her illness with bravery and strength, never once complaining or feeling sorry for herself. She took hope in knowing she would one day be reborn in heaven. Her father Al passed before her and we take comfort that he was there to meet her.
After graduating from the University of Manitoba, Lisa joined the Public Service of Canada. Lisa spent the majority of her 34 year career with Correctional Service of Canada. Lisa loved her work and truly enjoyed connecting with and helping people try and get their lives back on track.
Lisa's children were her pet puppies, they meant the world to her and she spoiled them with love, affection and attention. She was predeceased by Piper and Quintana. Leaving Quetzal to be cared for by our favorite aunt Cathy. Lisa was truly heartbroken when we suddenly lost Quintana this past April.
Lisa was extremely generous with a heart of gold and an optimistic outlook on life, always looking for the positive. Unselfish to a fault, Lisa always put herself last and her friends, family and husband first. Always willing to offer support and encouragement to those she loved.
Lisa and Darrell enjoyed annual winter vacations to Mexico and summers on the beaches in Gimli and Matlock and eating in their favourite restaurants. They loved attending concerts, movies and Blue Bomber games together. Lisa was a 28 year Blue Bomber season ticket holder.
Being creative was an important part of Lisa's life and she left us with many beautiful cards, paintings and crocheted gifts. Tara and Jordan will cherish the memories of our girls' crafting afternoons that we enjoyed so much. Lisa wanted to expose Jordan to arts and culture and we loved going with her to movies, plays and other events.
Lisa's loss leaves a void in our lives that will never be filled, but the impact she had on the people she was close to, will be a part of us forever. We will carry her memory with gratitude and love. Thank you, Lisa, for being part of our lives.
The family also wishes to thank the staff at CancerCare Manitoba, Health Sciences Center GD04 and St. Boniface Hospital Palative Care for their care and support.
Lisa would be grateful for donations in any amount to the Winnipeg Humane Society in her name.
A private Celebration of Life will be held at a future date.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forver. Psalm 73:26
