Lisa B. Sherlock

June 02, 1955 - August 06, 2018

Barrington, IL Lisa B. Sherlock (nee Brown), 63, of Deer Park, passed away on August 6, 2018. The daughter of the late Earl L. and Yvette Brown, Lisa was the loving wife of Bob Sherlock for 37 years; beloved mother of Will (Kristen) Sherlock and Meghan (Florentino) Sherlock Salazar; sister of Earl (Kathleen) Brown, Alan Brown, Julie (Bruce) Rioux and Eugene Brown; aunt and cousin of many.

Born and raised in Fort Kent, Maine, Lisa received her BA in speech pathology from the University of Maine. After marrying Bob, she moved with him around the U.S. before settling in the Barrington area in 1995. She worked at Barrington High School as a tech/media specialist and before that as a special services aide.

Lisa would want to be remembered for bringing joy to those around her. She loved to get people laughing with her. She was a doer and orchestrator with smarts, energy, creativity, and organizational skills. She loved being a mom and was great at it. From little childhood scrapes to her kids' biggest moments, she was always there, loving her family more than anything. She also held a tender place in her big heart for the kids of the Barrington area, encouraging and guiding the pre-teens and teenagers she met at school and in the community.
