Lisa McGinley was a wife, mother, daughter, and, coach, and friend to many who passed away after a difficult battle with COVID-19.
Lisa was an avid sports fan, but more importantly she was her sons’ biggest fan. She would attend all of their sports events, taking photos, and cheering them on. Lisa was incredibly proud of her sons and was always the loudest parent in the stands.
