Her youth was spent in Colorado where she attended Green Mountain High School in Lakewood, Colorado. Following she moved back to the Stuart – Menlo area and lived until moving into Des Moines. Her employment consisted of managing a hair salon, working in the billing and reimbursement department of Iowa Health and her favorite position of all was being a fulltime mom and grandmother to her children and grandchildren. Lisa was united in marriage to Jon Huff on November 11, 2000 and following their marriage they made their home in and around the metro area. Lisa took immense pride in being an Army Veteran’s wife. Lisa enjoyed coloring and keeping up with family and friends on Facebook. Her biggest enjoyment in life was her children, grandchildren and extended family. She was also an avid supporter of the LBGTQ community.
