On Friday, Dec. 19, 2014 we lost a beautiful woman and heaven gained this lovely caring saint. A celebration of her life in Christ was held on Sunday, Dec. 28, 2014 at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Onalaska. She was a loving wife (of Bruce J. Kerr) and mother of a son (Karl J. J. Kerr).
Lisa was Chairman of the Board of Directors for World Lutheran Deaf Outreach and worked tirelessly to improve the organization and help in every aspect of his conception and growth. Lisa and Bruce were instrumental in establishing Deaf Ministry in the LaCrosse/Onalaksa, WIsocnsin area for many years. Lisa was blessed with many gifts from her Lord, the most important was her deep and loving caring nature for others. She was never too busy to listen to someone and would always let people know of the deep love that Jesus had for them. If you were blessed to be in her presence when she led a group in prayer, you were immediately uplifted and encouraged. She prayed with her very heart and soul.
So much can be said of Lisa. She will be deeply missed by her family and all her many friends but we rejoice that she has finally achieved her lifelong goal of being in the presence of her Lord and Savior. It is easy for us to say:
Well done, good and faithful servant!
