Lisa Marie was born to George Finn and Kathryn Johnson on July 15th 1972, in Fosston Minnesota. At the age of three she moved to Larimore, North Dakota and resided there until 2012.

On May 21, 2016, Lisa was united in marriage to Gene Hiltner in New London, MN. They shared almost three years of marriage before her passing.
Lisa was a happy and bubbly woman. She loved spending time with her children and especially her grandchildren. Her family was her world and she definitely made sure the world knew that. She also took pride in her gardening; it was her work of art. Lisa was a very selfless woman; she always made sure everyone else’s needs came before her needs.
