Lisa was born Aug. 14, 1957, in Geneseo, the daughter of Edward and Betty (Gernant) McCann. She graduated from Geneseo High School in 1975. She worked in the banking industry her entire life, spending the past 30-plus years as a conversion analyst for Fiserv. Lisa enjoyed life to the fullest. She loved spending time with friends and family and was a Bears, Yankees Cubs, Fighting Illini and NASCAR fan. Her back door was always open to anyone who wanted to come by to visit. The TV in her kitchen was always on, and if not tuned in to a sporting event, was dialed into the Food Network. She raised several Schnauzers over the years, and will be missed by her little buddy, Linus.

Lisa is survived by her sister, Patricia, and friend, Steve Walker, of Geneseo; brothers, Ed (Michele), of Cedar Falls, Iowa; and Steve (Heidi Parkhurst), of Coal Valley; five nieces and nephews, Cade and Madison McCann, of Cedar Falls; Alison Tomczak, of Naperville; Michael McCann, of Moline; and Darby Finnegan and friend Tyler Pitlik, also of Moline; and her special great-niece and nephew, Sadie and Owen Tomczak, of Naperville, who always refered to her as “Aunt Lisa.” She also is survived by a fantastic circle of friends. She was preceded in death by her parents.

The family wishes to express their thanks to the staff at Dr. Garneau’s office. A special thanks to the wonderful staff at Clarissa Cook for making Lisa’s last days on this earth so comfortable.
