Sunday's Obituary: Lisa Gill

I have always clipped this that and the other news bit from the local papers. December of 1991, I saw in the paper (looks to be from the now-defunct Village News or Parkesburg Post) the obituary of a high school classmate. I believe she – Lisa Gill – was the first of our class (Class of 1987) to pass since graduation.

Her obituary reads:
Lisa M. Gill, 23, of 5 E. Bridge St., Parkesburg, died unexpectedly on Thursday, Dec. 19 in Lancaster General Hospital.

Born in West Chester, she was the daughter of John L. and Janice Adams Gill of Parkesburg. She had lived most of her life in Parkesburg and was graduated from Octorara High School, Class of 1987.

Miss. Gill was presently serving her internship at the Lancaster General Hospital, and would have graduated from Millersville University in July as a medical technician.

She was of the Catholic faith. While in high school, she had been a member of the National Honor Society.

Besides her parents, she is survived by two brothers, John L. Gill and Joshua L. Gill, both at home, paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John M. Gill, of Coatesville; and maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter E. Adams, of Parkesburg.
