Lisa loved athletics and spent countless hours riding her bike, lifeguarding and playing sports with all of her friends.

She was involved in academics, student activities and athletics there as well. Lisa then went on to work at the United States postal service, where she met her lovely husband, Gary Dombrowski. Lisa put all of her efforts into maximizing her 30 plus years as a coworker there. She worked with many different people and held leadership positions because of her skill set and work ethic. Lisa and Gary Dombrowski got married on November 14, 1992. They then started their life together and became members of St. Albert the Great Church. Lisa and Gary loved spending time together, traveling and trying new places. Their favorite adventures were with family and friends, especially Eddie and Donna Runyen. In 1994 Lisa and Gary had their only daughter, Nicole. Lisa devoted her life to her daughter and did everything she could for her family’s happiness. Lisa spent her days with her daughter at the park, at the beach and eventually taking her to every sporting event there was. Lisa loved the shore, she loved her faith in God, and she loved her family. Lisa was a true peace maker and enjoyed the simplicity of life. She spent her time giving and providing to all those around her. Lisa’s favorite place was home, surrounded by those she loved. Lisa is also survived by her nephews and nieces; Dana, Bobby, Gina, Michael, Alexis and Kaitlyn.

I offer my deepest sympathies to her family and friends. I went to Saint Ambrose and CD with Lisa and her brother, and am very sorry to hear this news.
Lisa was a beautiful person inside and out. Conversations with her were always about family. She got so much joy sharing stories about Gary and Nicole. I'm keeping the entire family in my prayers in your time of sorrow. May God bless you and keep you and comfort you.
Lisa was a wonderful woman, wife, mother, sister, Aunt, and special friend to many. We especially loved sharing so many family gatherings together. Family was always so important to Lisa. Lisa loved the beach in Sea Isle, She would spend hours and hours sunning herself. Sharing Family time at the beach with the Dombrowskis, the Hnatkowskys, and the Dizillos were the best of times. We will miss you dearly. We know there's a special place for you in heaven. Our prayers are for Gary, Nicole, and whole family.
Gary, Buggsy and I really want to give you and your family our deepest and most sorrowful condolences. May Jehovah give you the strength you need 🙏
So sad to hear this news. I was childhood friends with Lisa and Michael back on Clarkson Street. Lived two houses up. My parents were friends with hers. I also went to St. Henry's for German grammar school back then. We moved to the Northeast back in the summer of '69 when I was 11. I was heartbroken at leaving then and fell out of touch with my old friends from Olney. Have very nice memories of Lisa and Michael. My sincerest condolences to her husband Gary and daughter Nicole.
