Lisa is survived by her daughter, Elizabeth Schultz, her brother, Eric (Michelle) Butler, and her father, Tim Killen. She was preceded in death by her mother, Marilyn Rhamy, her aunt, Wanda Warren, and her aunt, Susan (Bob) Baas. She also leaves behind her nephew, Adam Butler, niece, Sarah Butler, cousin, Ronda Warren, and uncles, Ted (Pat) Butler and David Butler.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Lisa’s honor on Saturday, February 10, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. at First United Methodist Church of Gilbert, located at 331 South Cooper Road, Gilbert, Arizona. She will be interred in a beautiful glass niche at San Tan Memorial Gardens at Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek, Arizona.
