1969 - 2021
Obituary of Lisa Neumann
NEUMANN, Lisa was called home to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on December 11, 2021 at age 52 after a two year battle with cancer.
Lisa was born May 28, 1969 to loving parents Taras and Helen Peleshok and was the younger sister to Linda, Terry and Sharon. She met her loving husband of 33 years, Reiner Neumann, at Campbell Baptist Church. Lisa began her full-time job as Mom in 1989 with the birth of her first son, Christopher and in the coming years gave birth to two more boys; Brian and Stephen. In 2020, Lisa welcomed Lesleigh into the family as her “daughter in love” when Lesleigh married Christopher. She was promoted to Grandma this year with the birth of Madeline Elise Neumann, Christopher and Lesleigh’s first daughter.
Lisa will forever be remembered as the world’s most thoughtful and caring person. She always put others first and was known affectionately as “Mom” not only by her boys, but by their friends who she always welcomed into her house. She was the ultimate host and an incredible cook with family gatherings almost always held at the Neumann house. The only thing more important to her than her family was her faith in Jesus Christ, which she held onto through her entire life, even as the battle with cancer wore on. Her positive attitude through even the toughest times was an inspiration to all who knew Lisa and she’d always remind us; “Don’t worry, God’s got this”.
The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude to the doctors, nurses, personal support workers, friends and family who supported them on this difficult journey over the last few years.
