Lisa Eileen Allen, aged 66, passed away of natural causes at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale on October 2, 2023.
She was the daughter of the late Dr. Willis Allen and Vivian Norton Allen. She was born in Geneva General Hospital in N.Y. on April 20, 1957.
She attended Ovid Central School that became South Seneca Central School District. She attended and graduated high school from The Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, MA where she excelled in theater, varsity field hockey, and the cheer squad.
Post graduation, she attended The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. While in New York, she got hired to the legendary culinary market, Dean and Deluca, which she leveraged into a highly sought after management position. Lisa also worked at the famous music venue Max’s Kansas Steak House where she met many musicians. She moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. After the demand for accommodations for the 1984 Olympics, she was forced from her apartment, and left for Boston. She got a job with Harvard’s catering service, Creative Gourmet, and supervised their high-end events, such as Caroline Kennedy’s wedding.
