Service to others was Lisa’s calling in this world. She served in many different capacities as a nurse, most recently in home health pediatrics. She was a sponsor, friend, and peer to recovering alcoholics. She was tireless with a crochet hook, making wool hats for premature babies, handcloths for abused women, sleeping mats for the homeless, and scarves for the rest of us. Her final gift was of life itself when she was able to become an organ donor.

Lisa’s family will remember her as a remorseless punster who accepted either laughs or groans with equal satisfaction. They’ll remember her as a healer, adept with both a medicine cabinet and a comforting word. Finally, they’ll remember the daughter, sister, wife, and mother who confronted the challenges of life and chose more compassion, more love, and just a little more silliness in spite of them.

Lisa is preceded in death by her father Marlynn and brother Darold McKinnon. She is survived by her mother Karen, and stepfather Paul Isaacson; adopted father of 54 years, Dave Strong; siblings Derek, Michele, DeAnn, and Justin Strong; sons Weston Tyler Thompson, Bradon William Pulley, and Spencer Clint Pulley; and husband and love of her life Clint William Pulley.

A celebration of Lisa’s life will be held on Wednesday April 3, 2024 at 11:00 am in the Highland Gardens in American Fork. A viewing will be held Tuesday night April 2nd from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Anderson & Sons Lone Peak Chapel located at 6141 West 11000 North, Highland, UT and on Wednesday morning from 9:45 - 10:45 am prior to the celebration of life.
