Obituary of Lisa Marie Sweeney

Lisa Marie Sweeney, former communications manager, died on Sunday, September 6th, 2020 after an extended illness in Denver Colorado. She was 59, just three weeks away from her 60th birthday.


Lisa was born in Rochester, Minnesota on September 24th, 1960. She worked for the local cable company and was promoted many times in the cable industry which led to her living in Portland, Oregon for a brief time and then settling in Denver, Colorado.


Lisa loved her family. She loved to garden and had an amazing green thumb.  She loved the ocean and being in a boat on the water. All that knew her, knew her intelligence matched her beauty.  Lisa loved to dance and was the life of a party.  She will be dearly missed by her family and friends and especially her children.


Our family would like to thank Tom Reppert who was a best friend to Lisa for 23 years. The two of them were able to enjoy many special times together. He was always there to lend her a hand when she needed it.
