Lisa Mary O’Hara (Mansi), 56 of Glenolden passed away Monday July 18, 2022 at the Chester County Hospital in West Chester, PA. She was born August 9, 1965 at Delaware County Memorial Hospital to Benjamin L Mansi and the late Bernadette (Berry) Mansi.
Lisa attended Our Lady of Fatima grade school and then Cardinal O’Hara Highschool. During her time at O’Hara, she became a mom and continued and finished her education to receive her high school diploma. Lisa went on to work as a teller at Mellon bank. She also accompanied her mom and brothers working at Veterans Stadium as a Philadelphia Phillies usherette. After having her son Kevin, Lisa transitioned back into the workforce and became a beloved member in the community while working for several well-established local restaurants where she had her loyal patrons. For the last 20 years she worked for Independence Blue Cross/Blue Shield in various positions. Lisa was a lifelong resident of Glenolden where she was lucky enough to purchase the house behind her parent’s home and share a backyard for her whole adult life.
Lisa was so loved and had a very large and tight knit circle. She thoroughly enjoyed her time sitting in the sun at the Glenolden Pool where she met some lifelong friends. Her friends were her family, her family were also her friends. Lisa loved the beach and her time in Sea Isle City. You could find her first thing in the morning reading her books by the water and by late afternoon, she would be in the center of the family and friend’s circle. Over the last 7 years, Lisa developed a love of yoga and meditation and found strength, comfort, and mindfulness in her yoga community. Her true love in life were her children and grandchildren. Lisa loved and supported her children unconditionally, and was so proud of their accomplishments. Lisa’s grandchildren brought her pure joy. As their “Mom-mom”, she truly cherished simple times with them, spoiling them endlessly. Although her life was cut way too short, it was filled with friends, family and a lot of love.
In addition to her mother, she was preceded in death by her twin angels Stephanie and Kaitlin.
Survivors include her father, Benjamin L Mansi; daughter, Christy Loro (Ryan), son, Kevin O’Hara; Grandchildren, Lexie, Brady, Blake and Casey; siblings, Benjamin J Mansi (Suzanne), James A Mansi (Michele) and several nieces and nephews.

The family requests those attending to wear blue in honor of Lisa’s favorite color.
“Blue is a very spiritual color. It is the color of all-inclusiveness, expansiveness, peace, tranquility, and stillness. It is the color of the Throat Chakra, which is associated with self-reflection and expression, creativity, sense of purpose, and connection to deeper levels of awareness and existence.”
