Lisa Dalton

Lisa Dalton

Secretary/Treasurer

Lisa graduated from St. Pius X High School in Albuquerque. She graduated from UNM with a B.S. in Elementary Education and completed the accelerated B.S.N. program at UNM as well. She began her career in the funeral profession with Daniels in 2009 as a pre-need counselor. She began an internship in preparation/embalming and received her license in 2012. Lisa has a son, Anthony, who is a junior at UNM and a son, Brandon, who is a junior at La Cueva.

Lisa currently manages Albuquerque Central Care Center and oversees the transfer, preparation and/or cremation of the loved ones. Lisa says trying emotional times and challenges are an everyday occurrence at the care center. She feels that is why the team appears to be more like family than just co-workers. Lisa strives for perfection and upmost dignity the entire time the loved one is in her care. This work can only be explained as a calling from above. The care center employees are the “behind-the-scenes” angels truly devoted to giving grieving families an opportunity to exhale knowing their loved one was protected and taken care of with love.
