Lisa M. Barnes, 57, of Gardiner Road, Wiscasset died April 23, 2021 at her residence.

She was born in Damariscotta, Maine on Jan. 1, 1964, a daughter of William W. and Gloria J. (Allen) Barnes.

She graduated from Wiscasset High School and entered the U.S. Air Force in 1984. She married John P. Rock in 1985. Lisa obtained her master electrician’s license and went on to operate her own business in South Carolina.
