Lisa was well known in her Bronx neighborhood for taking care of her family and friends. She was a force to be reckoned with. If you knew her, then you know.
In The Bronx, Lisa loved hanging out with her family and friends. She loved music and going to parties, where she witnessed the innovation of hip hop and rap music.
In 1987, she moved back to Sandersville, Georgia to care for her ailing grandfather. After his death, she worked at Sandersville Technical College and did volunteer work in the Washington County Schools and a nursing home. She also assisted with taking care of her elderly neighbor until his death.
Ms. Duggan had a niece and two nephews whom she helped care for. They would come from New York and spend the summers with her. When her grandkids came along, she was the doting grandmother; spoiling her three grandchildren, within limits...if you knew her, then you know.
