Lisa A. Sanders was born on April 25, 1963, and grew up in the city attending West High School. Later on, she attended Job Corp in Salt Lake City where she learned how to drive CDL trucks and restaurant management.

In addition to being sweet, loving, kind and giving to those around her, Lisa had many hobbies that brought joy to her life.
