Lisa Marie Campagna
August 15, 1962 – November 4, 2021
Beloved mother, daughter, sister, and friend
Lisa Marie Campagna left this earthly realm on November 4, 2021, after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 59 years old.
It would be wrong to say that Lisa lost her battle with cancer, because she never stopped fighting. She stayed strong and resilient where others would have given in. All the while, not missing one beat of her living life with her family and friends. Through her, we know what spirit and perseverance truly look like.
Lisa was born in Brooklyn, New York to Frank and Annette Campagna. Lisa joined her brother Frank and sister Rene’ growing up in Las Vegas, Nevada surrounded by a loving family and a wide range of colorful characters. After attending Bishop Gorman High School, Lisa went on to study around the globe, attaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of London.
Lisa selected a profession in employee benefits and health; first through the creation and management of group insurance plans and later introducing workplace wellness and health informatics into the structure using her vast knowledge of the health insurance industry coupled with her strong personal commitment to preventative and alternative medicine.
Lisa moved to California early in her professional life and settled into the Bay Area. She loved the beautiful landscape and positive feel of the area and its people. She danced often, practiced yoga dutifully, and began to teach yoga as part of her wellness initiatives.
Lisa married Chris Lopes, and in 2004 gave birth to Christopher Lopes. Being a mother to Christopher was the blessing of Lisa’s life. She loved to spend evenings huddled on the couch listening to Christopher play his guitar.
Lisa was abundantly spiritual and recognized the common good inside of many religions. Lisa loved to be in the grasp of nature; biking and hiking as often as she could. Her nature walks gave her perspective and peace up to her final days.
Lisa was preceded in death by her father Frank and is survived by her son Christopher, her mother Annette, her sister Rene’, her brother and sister-in-law Frank and Kathy, her ex-husband Chris and his daughter Olivia.
There will be a mass at St. Sebastian Church in Greenbrae on Friday, November 12th at 3:00pm. On Saturday, there will be a memorial gathering from 12:00pm – 3:00pm at the Muir Woods Park Community Association Clubhouse. Muir Woods Park was one of Lisa’s favorite places.
