Lisa L. McGough, a lifelong resident of
Malden, passed away in Boston on Tuesday, December 6, 2016,
after a courageous battle with cancer. Lisa was born in 1975,
the daughter of Kenneth and Bunny McGough. She was raised in
Malden and graduated from Malden High School with the Class of
1993. After high school she attended the University of
Massachusetts in Boston, where she received her degree in Early
Childhood Development. She then took a job with the Melrose
YMCA as a preschool teacher, where she has been working since.
Lisa loved to travel, and had a goal of
visiting every state in the nation. She also enjoyed reading,
and loved visiting the Boston Public Library. She loved her
family, and tried to get together with her nephews every
weekend. In the 7 years since she was diagnosed with cancer,
she fought a valiant fight against it, and never wanted to let
anyone know she was feeling down or in pain. She will be
remembered for her fighting spirit and her love of music.
She is survived by her parents, Kenneth and
Bernice “Bunny” McGough, her brother, Sean McGough and wife
Darlene of Everett, her sister, Sharon McGough and partner
