After Lisa Steelman’s mother was released from a rehabilitation facility, she became her caregiver (as well as being a full time mother to an autistic son herself). Apparently one of the staff at the rehab facility had COVID and soon after Lisa started complaining of fatigue and chest congestion….
According to her GoFundMe page:
… That was Thursday night (April 9). Friday morning, Lisa couldn’t get up from the couch that she was sleeping on by my mom’s bed and was taken by ambulance to Mercy Hospital. Friday night we were told that they were running several tests and trying to stabilize her. We were semi -encouraged. Saturday morning we woke to the totally unexpected news that “Lisa probably wouldn’t make it”. No one could go see her except Perry, her husband who was allowed to be at her side when she passed away from COVID virus complications.Lisa Steelman’s GoFundMe page to benefit her autistic son
Lisa Ann Plamp Steelman of Bridgeton died of COVID-19 on April 11th. She was 56. It was suspected due to exposure and symptoms that her husband and son also had COVID. Her mother Marjorie Plamp passed 5 days later on April 16; it’s unclear if she also died of COVID.
Along with her husband, son, and extended family, Lisa Ann leaves behind the children at Rose Acres Elementary in Maryland Heights where she was a paraprofessional for the past 14 years.
