Lisa "Liso" Ann Rodriguez Maldonado was called to rest on October 7, 2021 at the age of 53, at the Hospice of South Texas Dornburg Center of Compassion in Victoria, Texas. She was surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor her legacy by living their lives to the fullest. Her battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma showed her courage in facing life challenges with a smile. Despite the pain, Lisa came out a hero and stayed strong until the end.
Her loving spirit captured the hearts of many and enjoyed making people smile at Circle G Truckstop where she worked for over 10 years. Lisa enjoyed cooking and baking goods for her family and friends. She was always there to lend a hand in helping family, friends, and those in need. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Lisa. She had a passion for music, loved dancing and spending time with family and friends.
