Lisa Elaine Martinson
Lisa Elaine Martinson, 67, of Troy, passed away Wednesday, February 22, 2023. She was born November 26, 1955 in Malden, Massachusetts to Carl and Edna (Oberlander) Martinson.
Lisa was a medical assistant at Family Medicine Associates in Collinsville for 45 years. In her spare time, she enjoyed volunteering at the Metro East Humane Society and with SNIP Alliance where she would assist in their pet food pantry. Lisa never met an animal she did not like. Through her lifetime, she rescued all kinds of animals. Many were cats and dogs but she would rescue any animal that needed her, even sugar gliders, turtles and a special horse, Blue. Helping animals was her true passion. Lisa will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Survivors left to cherish her memory include her brother, David (Sandy) Martinson; nieces and nephews, Cindy (Jim) Frank, Amy (Andy) Allen, Brian (Shawna) Reed, Dr. Bradley Martinson and Brett (Julie) Martinson; great nieces and nephews, Jimmy, Jonathan, Mason, Henry, Kennedy, Stella and Madeline; dearest friend, Sandy Eaves. Lisa is preceded in death by her parents and two sisters, Paula Klein and Claudia Evans.
