Lisa Pulley

May 31, 1967 — March 27, 2024

Lisa Strong Pulley passed away suddenly but peacefully on March 27, 2024. She was born to Marlynn McKinnon and Karen Hansen Isaacson (formerly McKinnon) on May 31, 1967, in Tacoma, Washington. She went on to graduate from Provo High School and become a registered nurse through Weber State.

Service to others was Lisa’s calling in this world. She served in many different capacities as a nurse, most recently in home health pediatrics. She was a sponsor, friend, and peer to recovering alcoholics. She was tireless with a crochet hook, making wool hats for premature babies, hand-cloths for abused women, sleeping mats for the homeless, and scarves for the rest of us. Her final gift was of life itself when she became an organ donor.

Lisa’s family will remember her as a remorseless punster who accepted either laughs or groans with equal satisfaction. They’ll remember her as a healer, adept with both a medicine cabinet and a comforting word. Finally, they’ll remember the daughter, sister, wife, and mother who confronted the challenges of life and chose more compassion, more love, and just a little more silliness in spite of them.

Lisa is preceded in death by her father, Marlynn, and brother, Darold McKinnon. She is survived by her mother, Karen, and stepfather, Paul Isaacson; adopted father of 54 years, Dave Strong; siblings, Derek, Michele, DeAnn, and Justin Strong; sons, Weston Tyler Thompson, Bradon William Pulley, and Spencer Clint Pulley; and her husband and the love of her life, Clint William Pulley.

A celebration of Lisa’s life will be held on Wednesday, April 3, 2024, at 11:00 AM in the Highland Gardens in American Fork. A viewing will be held Tuesday, April 2nd from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at the Anderson & Sons Lone Peak Chapel, 6141 West 11000 North, Highland, Utah, and on Wednesday, prior to the celebration of life from 9:45 - 10:45 AM. Please share a memory on Lisa's tribute wall.
