On October 15, 1983 she was united in marriage to Victor J. Young Sr. From this union two beautiful children were born.
Lisa grew up in Mt. Olive, NC and began her formal education in the Wayne County Public School System. She graduated from Southern Wayne High School in 1981 and continued her education at East Carolina University and Wayne Community College. For several years she was employed by O' Berry Center in Goldsboro, NC until she pursued her dream of becoming a Daycare Provider. She established Mrs. Lisa's Home Daycare in September 1996 where she provided lots of Love, Affection and Education to so many children in the community and surrounding areas. For most of her adult life she was a member of Deeper Life Church Ministries where she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and remained a devoted and faithful servant until her health began to decline. Although she could not attend church on a regular, her faith never failed!
