We walk in Memory of Lisa Skluzacek.
Elizabeth “Lisa” Skluzacek, age 46 of Lonsdale, lost her long and courageous battle to cancer on October 14, 2016. She was born on April 17, 1970 to George and Inez Jirik. She grew up in Lonsdale and attended grade school at LNMV and graduated high school from Bethlehem Academy in Faribault. Lisa graduated in 1992 from The College of St. Benedict with a degree in elementary education. She then went on to passionately teach 4th grade at St. Dominic Catholic School in Northfield for 24 gratifying years. She married Tim Skluzacek on August 13, 1994 in Lonsdale and gave birth to two beautiful children, Megan in 1997 and Jack in 1999.Lisa truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures. She was a religious woman involved in many church activities through St. Dominic Catholic School in Northfield and Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Lonsdale. Family was always the most important aspect of her life. She enjoyed many sporting events sitting next to Tim cheering on Megan and Jack at Tri-City United High School, always looked forward to annual family trips to Lake Miltona, and cherished time spent with family close to home. Additionally, adventurous travel with her close girlfriends most often involved excursions to places such as Washington, D.C. and New York. She will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend whose greatest passion was teaching and spending time with her loved ones.
