Lisa Lynn Przybyla was Born to Eternal Life August 31, 2022 at the age of 56 years. Beloved wife of Terry. Cherished mother of Trevor and Jeremy. Loving daughter of John (Diane) Schroedel and the late Mary (nee Kuehl) Schroedel. Dear sister of Jackie (Lou) Blankenheim, Bill (Kay) Schroedel, Sandy Grymkoski, Jessica (Garrett) Hartwig, Sheli (Josh) Albrecht and the late Tammy Schroedel. Daughter-in-law of Sharon Cebula and the late Robert (Diane) Przybyla. Sister-in-law of Jeff (Lori) Przybyla, Karen (Tommy) Boyce and Jason Przybyla. Further survived by many nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, other relative and friends. Lisa also leaves her beloved cats, Casey and Huey, to be cared for by her family. They were her constant companions and she loved them very much.
Lisa grew up in central Wisconsin. She graduated from DC Everest High School in 1984 and attended Mid-State Technical College in Wisconsin Rapids. After graduation, she moved to the Milwaukee area, where she met her husband, Terry. Lisa started a 30+ year career at MGIC, where she made many life-long friends.
Outside of work, Lisa devoted her time to family and friends. There were many trips made up north and annual trips to Great America and Door County.
When she was diagnosed with ALK-Positive lung cancer in 2017, she became a very active advocate for both ALK-Positive and the American Lung Association. She wanted to help all who were affected by this cancer, anyway she could. She participated in many fundraisers and clinical trials. Lisa would tell you, “Anyone who has lungs can get lung cancer.”
It was Lisa’s wish to personally thank Dr. Smitha Menon and her staff for their guidance over the last 5+ years. She was so very grateful for the extra time she got and all the memories that were made during that time. Lisa’s family also wishes to thank everyone from Horizon Hospice for their compassionate care during the last part of Lisa’s journey here on earth.
