Lisa died unexpectedly in her sleep the night of Tuesday, May 21st at the age of 50.

Lisa was a very sweet, kind, loving, compassionate, and intelligent woman. She volunteered at the Mental Wellness Center, talking to the members about their issues and providing them with great support. She was such a good listener. She was also an animal lover and she volunteered at the humane shelter. She rescued several animals from danger. Once she insisted that the car be stopped because there was a goose in the road so she assisted it to safety.

Lisa attended elementary school in Amherst , NH; boarding school at The Cambridge School of Weston, MA, and DU college in Denver, Colorado.

Lisa did not have children, but she deeply loved her fiancé’s children, and they deeply loved her.

Lisa was very close to her grandmother, Stella Buselli. Lisa’s ashes are to be interred with Stella’s grave in Wolcott, Connecticut at a later time.

Lisa is survived by her fiancé, Vahan Papakhian of Santa Barbara, and her mother, Anita Kachulis and her younger brother, James Buselli, both of Santa Barbara. She is also survived by her father, Frank Buselli and her stepmother, Pamela  Buselli, of Amherst, New Hampshire, and by her half-brother, Breck Buselli of Salt Lake City, Utah. Lisa is also survived by her former husband, Harvey Robbins, of Santa Barbara.

Lisa will be sadly missed by all who knew her and loved her, but never forgotten. Her memory lives on in our hearts.
