Lisa Margaritis’s Family & Friends Support

It is with deep sadness, that we say goodbye to a beloved daughter, wife, mother, friend, and teacher.  Lisa Margaritis, 49, tragically lost her life while saving someone else.    

During a stand-up paddleboard yoga class in Southold, NY, Lisa, an experienced paddleboarder, was helping a fellow student who was struggling with unforeseen rip currents.  While tethered, Lisa fell into the water and her board got stuck on a bridge piling.  Unfortunately, she drowned and lost her life at Hashamomuck Pond.  A beautiful soul who will be missed by so many people.  

Sadly, Lisa leaves her 15 year old son and husband.  

We created a GoFundMe account - just  as she was there to help someone else, we’d  like to be there to help others in her memory.   All donations will go to benefit the St. Aidan’s Scholarship Fund in memory of Lisa Margaritis.
