Lisa Mary Sloan, 48, passed away on Saturday, May 8th after sustaining debilitating injuries in a car accident 4 years prior.
Lisa served the Southeast Chapter Secretary, Treasurer-Elect and Treasurer, and as House Chair for several years, always selecting great venues for our meetings and events. She has been greatly missed by the chapter since her accident.
Lisa, a life-long Memphis resident, attended the University of Memphis and Christian Brothers University. At the time of her accident, she was the Director of Product Compliance for W.M. Barr after previously serving as a Scientist for Merck. Lisa enjoyed running, running with her dog, Archie, and running marathons. Lisa was a self-appointed eyewear spokesperson and had more pairs of glasses than is reasonable. She loved working in her yard, entertaining at her house, going to Grizzlies games, and making lists. One of her greatest pleasures was traveling with her cherished friends to ski, visit the beach, or run marathons.
She is survived by her mother, Laurie Holland, sisters, Julie Cupples and Leslie Holland, nephews, Jon, David, and Chase Cupples, and Reid Holland-Allan, and beloved dog, Archie. She was preceded in death by her father, Herbert C. Holland, Jr. In lieu of customary remembrances, donations may be made to the Memphis Jewish Home. http://www.memphisjewishhome.org/
