Memorial service Saturday for Lisa Slader, 1965-2015

A memorial service is planned this Saturday for Lisa Slader, 50. Here’s the remembrance her family is sharing:

Lisa Slader passed away Sunday night after a two-year battle with cancer.

Lisa was born in San Angelo, Texas and raised in Burien. Her father worked at Boeing for 30 years. Lisa attended Evergreen High School, graduating in 1983. Lisa met Greg Slader in 1987 and they settled into the West Seattle neighborhood of Belvedere. Lisa had a 25-year career @ Northwest Administrators as she excelled in pension accounting.

Lisa is survived by her two boys and her husband. She was very involved with their youth sports, as her boys played baseball, basketball, and soccer in local West Seattle leagues. Jesse and Cameron went on to graduate from West Seattle High school.

Funeral Services are this Saturday (October 31), 11 am @ Forest Lawn Cemetery, 6701 30th Ave. SW in West Seattle.

    I didn’t know Lisa, but may have talked to her at her position @NW Administrators, as they handle one of my group’s pension. Condolences to her family.

    So sorry to hear of Lisa’s passing. I had both her kids at WSHS and knew this was something the family was dealing with. I wish them peace as they process this loss and hope their community of family and friends shows them love and comfort during this difficult time.

    I do remember Lisa from conversations by phone. My chest feels tight and my breathing constricted as I realize it was the passing of my husband, and hero, that connected me to Lisa. He two battled with “C” for 2+ years. He also left me two amazing children, which reminds me daily of the “team” love we created with him and still share in a way that is larger than life itself! Lisa may have had to leave, but the team you are with her and without her does not change… Not every person will last forever, but your team love most certainly will! May Lisa have the final rest she deserves… Peace and love to the family.

Sorry, comment time is over.
