Family, friends and fans of long time Chico Radio Personality Lisa Kelly are mourning her death tonight.
Lisa Kelly was a familiar voice on the airwaves, working for more than 30 years in North State radio on stations like "KFM", "Thunder" and most recently "The Hippo" and "The Wolf".
She was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in August, and passed away while surrounded by family in Chico Tuesday night at the age of 57.
Lisa was known for her big heart, her voice and her personality.
She was an avid animal lover and helped to promote many local events and charities through her work, including St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Lisa was recently named an "Official Chico Icon" by the "You Know You're from Chico When..." Facebook group.
Her family wishes to thank her fans and friends, and Enloe Hospice.
Plans are in the works for a Celebration of Life, but the date has not yet been determined..
