Lisa was born on April 15, 1944 at Cambridge City Hospital, the second of three children born to Margaret and John P. Queeney Sr. Lisa was raised in Dorchester and Milton, where education was the main focus of the family. In 1965, she graduated from the Cambridge City Hospital School of Nursing and earned her R.N., which was just the beginning of a very long and accomplished nursing career. In 1976, she earned her B.S. in Psychology at Emmanuel College, and in 1989, her M.S. in Applied Management at Lesley College. Lisa was also a Certified Case Manager, Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse and Gerontologist, as well as being a Medicare Specialist with management experience in acute, chronic, and long term care. Her resume further includes being the Director of Nursing at Eagle Pond Nursing Home in South Dennis MA, Vice President of Clinical Services at Berkshire Healthcare in Pittsfield MA, National Director of Clinical Support at Sun Bridge Healthcare of Albuquerque NM, and prior to her retirement in 2015, Director at Hospice of Marion County in Ocala FL.
Lisa met her true love and best friend Ken Brown in 1990. They were married in Chatham, MA in 1995. Later in 2005 they moved to The Villages, FL begin their retirement.
Lisa was a brilliant, dynamic, energetic and fun loving person whose infectious and unforgettable laughter could brighten any room. Life was always an adventure when she was around. She loved life, taking on challenges, her family, her friends, and her pets. Anything active and outdoors were her passion: biking, kayaking, all sorts of skating, scuba diving, skiing, snorkeling, windsurfing, snowmobiling, and swimming, to name a few. She was an inspiration, a mentor, and a caregiver. She was always ready with sound advice, a comforting touch, or a witty remark.
She was the light in all our lives. Losing her will be profoundly felt by her family and friends.
