Obituary of Alissa P. DeLapa
Lisy (Alissa) DeLapa, 32, passed away after a brief illness. She was a beautiful daughter that any parent would be proud of! Being a loving free spirit is the reason she brought joy to every life she touched. Everyone that met her knew how special she was, especially her sense of humor. Lisy enjoyed her nieces and nephews as much as they enjoyed being with her.
She was the best Aunt Lisy ever (aka the baby whisperer). Lisy loved Ohio State football, dancing (always the hit at every wedding reception), animals (she thought of herself as an animal whisperer), her golf cart that was painted scarlet and gray and Sophie her dog
She graduated from Woodridge High School and Medina County Career Center. Lisy was employed by United Dental Labs where she truly enjoyed working with all her friends.
Preceded in death by her mother Heidi; aunt Diane DeLapa; grandfather Dr. Richard DeLapa; uncle Bob Mulrennan; grandma Alice Welch, cousin Alena Aloisi and dog Mackenzie. Lisy leaves behind her dad and mom R.J. and Dawn DeLapa; sister’s Jessica (Andy) Ports, Erika Boggs, Ashley Allen; nephews Jaxon, Collin, Ryan and Luke; nieces; Bella, Charlee, Cate and Ally; grandparents nana (Patricia) DeLapa; granny (Chris McMullen); grandpa Larry Chipner
and grandma Sharon Chipner; aunts and uncles David (Lynne) DeLapa, Joanne DeLapa, John (Jennifer) DeLapa, Nancy Keny (Tom Barzditis), Shawn (Karri) Chipner, Cat, Lori (Jr) Aloisi, Gretchen (Phil) Drago, Martin Leopold and Jimmy Welch and many cousins and friends. We would also like to thank the ICU staff at Cleveland Clinic - Medina Hospital and Cleveland Clinic Main Campus MICU for the wonderful care and treatment that was received by Lisy!
