Elizabeth “Lisa” Hope (Bergman) Canouse, age 58, of Berwick, passed away Tuesday, November 24th, 2020.  Lisa was born in Northeast Philadelphia to the late Bernard and Edith Bergman.  On Friday afternoons in her youth, you could find her enjoying a cheesesteak from her favorite place, Steve’s, right around the corner.

Lisa moved to Berwick once getting married and made this her home.  She loved spending time with her husband and kids, cooking, shopping-especially Marshall’s, and hanging out with her beloved dogs:  Sophie, Stella, and Kenzo.  She was employed at Berwick Area School District for the last 17 years.  She was a loving and kind person who enjoyed working with the students daily.  Lisa loved rooting for her Philadelphia sports teams.  She was an amazing mother, wife, friend, and woman.

She will be truly missed by her husband of 31 years, Barry, as well as her three children:  Emily, Meredith, and Michael.  In addition to her spouse and children, she is survived by her brothers:  William “Billy” Bergman and Robert “Bobby” Bergman (Rose); cousins:  Kaya Latterman, Barry Latterman, Ester Robles, and Trudy Buri.  She is also survived by her mother-in-law:  Laura Canouse; brother-in-law:  Lewis Canouse (Kathy); sister-in-law:  Jackie Davis (Wayne), as well as countless nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her parents, as well as a sister, Ellen.
