Lisa served the Malley Farm mission in a masterly fashion since 2015. She joined our Board of Directors in 2020. Lisa, one of our pioneers, not only assisted in the clean-out and upkeep of Malley Farm, but also served all the women that resided and recreated their lives here right up until her untimely death.
