Teresann M. Lisa (née Tamburrino), 84, of Lansdale, PA, passed away June 19, 2020 due to a non-COVID related medical illness. With a zest for life, Teresann lived each day with joy as a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. In addition to her strong family presence, Teresann was also a savvy and successful businesswoman and entrepreneur. Teresann loved the warm weather of both Tamarac, FL in the winter and the beach shores of South Jersey during the summer. Spending quality time with her family and finishing the day with a large family meal were some of her favorite pastimes. Teresann loved to travel and her Catholic faith was very important to her. She was especially proud of her Italian heritage and was famous for her delicious meatballs.
Teresann was born on February 6, 1936 in West Berlin, New Jersey. She grew up in Camden County, New Jersey, where she attended elementary school and high school.

Throughout their lives they and their children lived in many different places in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Her husband, Frank, died on March 30, 2001 in East Stroudsburg, PA. Later, Teresann retired to Tamarac, FL where she enjoyed many special friendships.
