Tzaneen mourns the loss of a beloved member of the community as the news of the death of Lisa-Mari Stoltz (38) tunnelled its way through the hearts of everyone who knew her.

“We are devastated to announce the death of Lisa-Mari Stoltz (née Cilliers), 38 years of age. Lisa was born and lived her life in Tzaneen, went to school at Unicorn and Merensky, and was a much loved member of this small community. Lisa worked closely with her father, Jan Cilliers, and husband Brendon Stotlz, as a director at Vision on Line,” her family announced.

Sadly, Lisa died on the 31st May 2022 from complications in surgery. She leaves behind her husband Brendon, two precious daughters Amelia and Erinn, parents Jan and Erika, sisters Claire and Gabi, and the rest of her loving family and close friends.

“Lisa was a kind, sympathetic and caring person. Beautiful both inside and out. She was always willing to help and give of her own time. She was a strong woman who loved her family fiercely with every fibre of her being. She loved her Creator and applied Biblical principles in her daily life. She has been an example to us all, to continue showing love and kindness regardless of the difficult times we may face. Lisa lived her life giving unconditionally to others, may we all strive to do the same.”

The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude for all the love, support and sympathies in this incredibly difficult time.
“Memories saturate my heart and the story of you spills from my eyes.”
