Mrs. Palmer E. “Lisa” (Mullen) Gillam, 62, of Carver MA and formerly of Hopedale MA died Wednesday (May 6, 2020) at the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth MA after a tough battle with cancer. She was the beloved wife of Mark S. Gillam.
Lisa was born in Framingham MA, the daughter of the late John J. Mullen Sr. and the late Harriette E. (Whitney) Mullen. She attended Hopedale public schools, graduating from Hopedale High School, Class of 1975. She also attended hair dressing school in Worcester MA.
Lisa has been a resident of Carver MA since 1997. Prior to that she had resided in Hopedale MA and Raynham MA. She was employed for many years as a hairdresser at various salons located in Milford and Hopedale. She also had worked part-time at Edaville USA and at CVS, both in Carver MA.
Lisa loved watching her soap opera “Days of Our Lives”; sewing, just like her mother; collecting antiques, baking treats like her beloved apple pie, spending time soaking up the sun at the beach and her trips to her family’s home in Maine. But most of all, she loved spending time with her daughters.
Along with her beloved husband of thirty-four years, she is survived by her two daughters: Meaghan Elizabeth Gillam and Kristen Anne Gillam of Carver MA; her three siblings: P. J. Mullen and his wife Claire of Yarmouthport MA, John J. Mullen Jr. and his wife Carla of Mashpee MA and Nancy M., wife of Scott Michelson of Milford MA; also several nieces, nephews, cousins, her uncle Philip Whitney of Natick MA, and her aunt Nancy Howes of Hopedale MA.
