Lisa was born in Flint on February 8, 1967, to Harold and Evelyn (Birchmeier) Bila. Lisa attended The Millet Center for special needs individuals in Saginaw starting at the young age of two.

Some of her favorite things to get involved in were bowling, assembling puzzles, dancing, attending family gatherings, and working at The Junction of Hope. She especially liked receiving her paycheck so she could shop till she dropped. Lisa enjoyed listening to country music. Her favorite country artist was Dolly Parton and her song was “Achy, Breaky, Heart.” You can’t forget her infatuation for Elvis. She loved the color pink, receiving presents, interacting with young children, holding babies, steak, cheeseburgers with ketchup and Slurpees. Lisa always requested a spoon when she ate. She was a quick witted, loving individual with an infectious smile. You could always count on her for a good one liner.
