Lisa Kay Dralle passed away Feb. 10, 2020, at Barnes-Jewish hospital in St. Louis after a hard fought battle with pulmonary fibrosis.
She was preceded in death by an infant brother and Charles (Chuck) Dralle, who was her dad since she was five.
Surviving is her mother, Martha Kaye Dralle Perkins; sister, Janet Swopes; Half-brother, Christopher Dralle; Step-sisters, Anna Moos and Laurie Foster; five nieces; three nephews and many friends and co-workers.
Lisa loved life and always had a big smile. She graduated from college, wanting to be a nurse, but went into other medical fields. She worked at Mercy Hospital where she gave 110% to her work. Living on borrowed time, this was a feat as in 2015, she was told she had three to five years to live.
As the disease progressed, she maintained that smile and positive outlook dragging her oxygen tank around. She never gave up working to the end.
She accomplished more in her life than anyone knows and came through a smiling winner.
No formal funeral service is planned.
