In Memory

Lisa Beasley

Lisa Starr Beasley was born Sept 6, 1952 Long Beach, CA. Lisa died April 24 in Grass Valley, after a two-year battle with brain cancer. She lived much of her life in Marin County, graduating from Ross School, Redwood High, and College of Marin, where she was active in theater and a member of the famed 1971 "Old West Shrew" company that represented Marin at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Later, Lisa lived in Los Angeles and had a long career in crowd promotion, casting crowds for dozens of popular movies and TV series, culminating in running her own successful casting agency for extras, Cast of Thousands. Lisa was predeceased by her parents, Charles and Dora, and her brother, Kurt. She is survived by her cousins, Kay, Don, and Mylinda Dahl, of San Francisco. She is also survived by her chosen family, the Lehmanns (Lucianna, Kurt, Wes, Hal), and by the LDG (Lu, Karen, Kathy, Pam, Ginny, Alison, Nancy, and Pru), and by her little dog Otis. Lisa's grieving friends are too many to mention; all her life, people were drawn to Lisa because of her charismatic personality, her dry humor, and her genuine interest in everyone around her.

Lisa was one of the kindest people I've ever met, ever since 3rd grade at Ross School.
Effervescent as could be Lisa was helpful to everyone she met.
I was really looking forward to seeing her at the Reunion.
We will miss her.

SO SAD, My first great love, we dated thru high school. There are so many memories, I have thought of her many, many  times over the years. I'm sad to learn that she lived near me and we never met up. We laughed and really had a teenage love for each other. Bless her and rest in peace.😚

Along with Bud, my memories of Lisa go way back to small kids at Ross School. Huge heart, always a kind word and a heck of a lot of fun to be with. Another great one from our class moves on, but not forgotten.

I saw the notice about Lisa and the respective posts. I agree totally with my fellow classmates about Lisa'a always cheerful demeanor.  Like some others, I got to know her at Ross Grammar School, especially since we were always side by side when having to line up in last name alphabetical order.  I too would have loved to have seen her the next time we have a reunion. We all know that a wonderful and warm heart is at rest.

So very not fair, I remember the two of us in PE, we were the biggest girls in class, so when calisthenics happened she & I would start playing ballet positions & fake lifts, we had every one laughing, We always cracked each other up ...... Loving that memory, Her light will be missed .....

Lisa Beasley was one of my first friends at Ross School when we moved there. I will never forget her kindness as well as that of Kathy Rainey. We had our own Beatles fan club and our own trail to get from my house to her and Kathy's houses. Long ago and far away, Followed her career and her illness on line. Rest In Peace my old friend. You earned it.
