Memorial Fund for Lisa's Loves

In her 47 years, Lisa touched countless lives with her joy, creativity, unfailing good humor and unforgettable smile. Cancer took her from this world much too soon in September 2017. Lisa was a wise and caring mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, public health advocate and communications professional who would have blushed wildly at all this praise.

Lisa’s true passion always was her family, especially her husband of 13 years, Ed Creswell, and their twin boys, William and Steven, who soon will turn 9. Lisa’s love for the three closest men in her life was boundless.

The outpouring of love from her family, friends and colleagues in the days since her death has been astounding. Many of those who love Lisa have expressed a desire to contribute to Steven and William’s college education.

If you would like to honor Lisa's legacy in this way, please consider making a donation here. Funds raised on this site will be used toward the cost of a four-year university plan with Florida Prepaid College Board for each of the boys.
