Lisa Faye Neadeau, 49, passed away in St. Paul, Minnesota on Thursday, September 26, 2019. Lisa was born in Minneapolis on January 5, 1970, to Margaret Neadeau and Dudley LaRonge.
Lisa graduated from the American OIC Business Administration Program and worked at Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center as a Financial Services Assistant. She then went on to work as a blackjack dealer for many years at Mystic Lake. She left her job at Mystic Lake to take care of her mother until she passed.
Growing up Lisa loved hanging out with her homies. She loved playing pool and music and dancing. She threw down that cardboard on the streets of southside Minneapolis and popped and locked it. She was a member of the Inner City Rockers. Lisa loved cooking and was an excellent cook. Lisa always kept her home clean and beautiful. She was a classy lady and kept herself and Robert and Baby Dale in the latest fashion trends.
Lisa was smart and goal oriented. She knew what she wanted, and she would accomplish her goals with style and grace. Lisa was always so nice and really really cared about people. People were drawn to her because of it. She had a huge heart and was always willing to help people, even people she didn’t know. Lisa would get up in the middle of the night and run to you if you needed it. She could be tough when she needed to and could really throw down. Kids loved her, she was a really good mom and loved her kids fiercely – “mama bear” fierce!
She loved her mom and brother Dale and always made sure they were taken care of. She was always laughing and smiling. When Lisa walked into a room it was all eyes on her. She had an amazing aura and an outer beauty like no other.
She is survived by her sons Robert Neadeau-Conboy and “Baby” Dale Neadeau; the love of her life and life partner Robert Iron Necklace; special children Vanessa Barrientez, Brandon Dunkley, Jake IronNecklace and Micah IronNecklace ; sister Elizabeth LaRonge; special sister Julie Ausin Robles; brother Edward Neadeau and many, many friends and family. Lisa was preceded in death by her mother and father, brother Dale Neadeau, son Todd Weldon Jr and and numerous other family members.
