Mrs., O’Brien was the social worker at Park School for many years. Jean Luft, a teacher at Willard and former president of DEC, the teacher’s union, told the RoundTable, “Lisa helped and supported many families. She also worked at Washington, Lincoln and Willard Schools. … Lisa was a remarkable person and we will all miss her.”
