  16. I only knew Lisa for a few years at BVC. I had the pleasure of being her teacher in 1981 when I worked there. She was 20 years old and the friendliest and most outgoing person in the building. Her generosity was evident at Christmas when she gave me a Norman Rockwell Santa which I still have on permanent display. I think of her each time I look at it. I will always have fond memories of Lisa. RIP young lady. My heart is broken. Condolences to the entire Clancy family.

  17. To the Clancy, so sorry for your loss please accept our deepest condolences.

  18. I being a foreigner to Rhode Island 40 odd years ago was adopted into this large group; learned early it was a vocal and loving family. I met them all and in a very short time knew there was a central heart that encompassed all of them and that center was “Lisa”. I hadn’t seen her for quite a few years until last year, she smiled and recognized me instantly. Genuinely a special person, inspiring others to offer much to others. Her family shared her with all they knew, more people should have met and known her.

  19. My heartfelt condolences to the family. Lisa was truly one of a kind with her sparkling smile and twinkle in her eyes! May she rest in peace 🙏💖
