Lise was born on January 7, 1932 in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she grew up.

In the early seventies she married Bengt Rickberg, and they moved to California in 1975. Around 1986 they moved to Bath, Maine, where they lived until Lise moved to Hill House Assisted Living in 2017. Lise was a private person, and those who knew her appreciated her friendship.
