Lisa Ronkowski's family expenses

It saddens us to announce the untimely passing of our beloved family member and friend, Lisa Ronkowski.  She was only 41 years young. She brought much joy and love to all she knew.  There will be a noticeable void with her absence.

Lisa was diagnosed in January 2017 with Stage 4 cervical cancer. At that point, she vowed to Aaron and their four children, Brandon, Desiree, Logan, and Emily along with her sister, Peggy, and her brother, John, that she would fight everyday for them. She loved them with all of her heart and lived by the saying, "Everyday is a gift, that's why it is called the present." A year after her diagnosis, she has been reunited with her parents and is no longer suffering.

Lisa was blessed with determination long before cancer struck and she used it to draw personal strength as she endured chemotherapy, radiation, and several hospitalizatons.  She was a fighter the whole time. Even though her body needed a rest, she still beat cancer through her attitude and passion.  It is now our turn to carry on the fight and offer her family our support.

The members of Lisa's family live modest lives and the expense of memorial arrangements are an enormous financial burden. We are coming together to ensure a perfect and beautiful rememberence of Lisa. We want her to be laid to rest without inflicting financial hardship on those who have to say goodbye too soon, particularly  Aaron as he continues to provide for their four children as a single parent during this devastating time and continue to pay for her medical expenses.

We want to thank you in advance and let you know it is difficult to express our deep gratitude to all of you for your kindness and support.  At this time, we are keeping the service among her closest family members and later will have a memorial in Spring to celebrate Lisa's life with her family and friends. We will keep you updated when it is scheduled.

Our sincere thanks and blessings to you.
