    To the Mashaw family,

    When we learned of Lisa’s passing our thoughts immediately went back to those summer months many years ago when our families had the opportunity to spend time together. Gary, Denny and I often reminisce and share fond memories of those times.

    Please know that you are in our prayers and thoughts. We know that Lisa is living in the hearts of those she’s touched over these many years. Nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved by many.

    With love,

    Gary, Pattie and Denny Edwards

    Lisa Powell was such a blessing to my family. It is so hard to imagine a world without her. Lisa has went home to be with her husband Rookie and her maker, Jesus Christ. As hard as it is to lose her we must rejoice because Lisa is in a much happier place. Thank you for all the great memories Aunt Lisa. We love you and you will remain in our hearts FOREVER. You will always be “The Favorite Aunt”.

    We were so shocked and saddened to hear of Lisa’s passing. Our condolences to all her family & friends. We will not be able to attend her services or celebration of life party because we will be out of town helping Josh move from his apartment. Lisa and all of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    I remember Lisa best when we were young & foolish, before life’s harsh realities set in for so many of us, countless hours spent in the local taverns playing pool. The room lit up when she walked in. That smile, and that laugh, was just infectious, and over the years, it remained that way. That smile is what I will always remember about Lisa. Debbie, Diane, and all of Lisa’s family, please know my thoughts are with you today.

  • Pam Ives Posted May 30, 2009 2:08 PM

    My thoughts and prayers are with eveyone during this diffucult time. I really liked Lisa, she was always so upbeat and funny. Her laugh was so infectious, that just being around her was a true delight. And she was a great hairdresser too. Even thought I havent seen her in some time, I will always remember her in a very fond and wonderful way.

    To the entire Mashaw family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. As we reflect back on the many years we knew Lisa, we can’t help but share a tear and so many pleasant thoughts of our times spent together in Ogdensburg. Our trips to Ogdensburg will never be the same. Lisa was always a part of each visit “back home”………
    We have shared a lifetime with her and she will be so sadly missed. We were so blessed to be able to attend her Memorial service at Grace Covenant Church. May God give you strength during this time.
    in silence,
    Mark & Janet

    To the entire Mashaw Family and their families-
    I was shocked to hear about Lisa. She had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh — just a fun person to be around. When I’d see her we had some good laughs about school especially. Cherish your memories and remember her smile.
    Sincerely–Penny S.

    I am really sorry that Lisa has passed. I can’t really bring myself to deal with it, I only know that Lisa was ready to be with the Lord. I want to let you all know that I miss her dearly. I apologize that I couldn’t be there with you all. Please know that I think about all of you and know you are all missing her as much as I, even more I know. As soon as I can I would like to give each of you a huge hug, and share some memories and laughes. Once again I want you all to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so sorry. I loved her dearly.

    Thank you for taking special care with my mom and making her look BEAUTIFUL when she was alive. You always made her hair look so nice. You came to the hospital when mom was ill and you colored and styled her hair, that made mom feel so good. After mom passed away you and I had a heart to heart about death and dying. You were never afraid about leaving this world. You are now in the arms of Jesus.
