Lisa was born on June 16, 1965, in Marshalltown, Iowa, to her parents, Robert and Carol (Mitchell) Bauge. She spent most of her life enjoying family and friends. Lisa loved cooking, cross stitching and especially quilting. She spent many happy hours creating quilts for her family and residents at the head injury program in Waterloo. After her stroke in 2005 and with the help of this program, Lisa graduated as independent. She then created a program with the help of the Knot Sew Perfect Piecers quilting family to make quilts and other pieces for anyone in the program and staff.
