Ambrogetti,  Inger-Lise

Inger-Lise "Lisa" Ambrogetti passed peacefully on December 30, 2021, after a courageous fight with cancer. Lisa was born August 10, 1939 in Oslo, Norway. As a young woman, she started working at the Swan Apothecary in Oslo. She later went to Iceland as a nanny, but shortly went to work for the Catholic nuns in Reykavik, Iceland. During her stay there, she met and wed her first husband, a USAF officer. Lisa became a US Citizen in 1959. Lisa had two children of this marriage, Lynda and Lynette. In April 1997, she was married to Walter Ambrogetti from Klamath Falls, Oregon. They lived in Vancouver first, but returned to Klamath Falls about 10 years ago. Lisa had worked in retail, and for years she volunteered at Treasures. She enjoyed working and visiting with people, she loved fishing, hunting, travelling the world and going on walks. In the early 60s, Lisa joined the Klamath Falls Lodge of the Sons of Norway. She ensured her children and other members would know her Norwegian culture and traditions. She continued as an active member of the Sons of Norway no matter where she lived, and was active at the Lodge, teaching the language and culture, during her last years in Klamath Falls. In July 2021, Lisa was diagnosed with brain cancer. She received outstanding care from providers, nurses and therapists at St Charles in Bend Oregon. She was able to return home for a few months, where her husband Walt, daughter Lynda and caregiver Janeen took care of her, laughed with her and made her days as good as possible. God called her home suddenly on December 30th, sparing her from further pain and suffering. Lisa is survived by her husband Walt Ambrogetti, daughter Lynda Daniel and husband Fred Daniel, her deceased youngest daughter's fiancé Petre Gurau, brothers Terje Liltvedt and Roy "Basse" Liltvedt, and numerous relatives in Norway, England, Italy and the US. Services will be held at Hope Lutheran Church, 2314 Homedale Road, on Saturday, January 15 at noon. A reception will follow there. Interment will take place at Klamath Memorial Park on Monday Jan 17 at 10 am. For the safety of all of our loved ones, we ask that all attending please wear a mask
