Lisa Froeb Tribute

It is with great sadness and a very heavy, heavy heart that we announce that Lisa Froeb, a dear friend to Magdalene/Thistle Farms, wife to Luke Froeb, and mother to Jake and Halley Froeb, died in a hiking/climbing accident in remote Utah where Luke and Lisa own a cabin on Friday.

Lisa served this community as a Magdalene Board Member, Co-Chair of our 2010 fundraiser, and as a remarkable volunteer who was always eager to help and serve. Lisa was at the Grand Opening of the Thistle Stop Café, just prior to leaving for the trip in Utah.

A memorial service will be held Thursday, June 6, at 3pm in Benton Chapel on the Vanderbilt Campus. Reception will follow at 4:15pm-6pm at the Owen Graduate School of Management, right next door.

We offer prayers for Luke, Halley and Jake Froeb. A tribute page has been set up for her HERE and all are encouraged to join and post photos and memories of our dear friend.

  1. What an honor it has been to get to meet and know such a wonderful woman. So unassuming, lover of life and people. She is the epitome of a servant. My prayers are with her family at this time and as they move forward without Lisa. We will remember this wonderful lady, wife, Mom and friend.

  2. I knew Luke as a student in the 2008 eMBA program. My heartfelt prayers are with him and his family.

    May the Holy Spirit dwell within,
