Arthur J. and Simone D. Cushing of Meredith are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Lisa Simone, to Ross Anthony Robertson, son of Kimberly J. Thomas of Meredith and Mark A. Robertson of Irvine, California.
The proposal took place on the bank of the Corrib River in Galway, Ireland near Menlo Castle. Ross surprised the parents by arranging for them to be traveling on the Corrib River just as the proposal took place. Lisa was equally surprised to see the family in Ireland. A congratulatory dinner was held that evening at Cooke’s Restaurant in Galway City.
Lisa, a biology major, and Ross, an engineering major, graduated magna cum laude from the University of New Hampshire, Durham in 2012, and were members of the Inter-Lakes High School Class of 2008. Lisa is working towards her medical degree as a physician’s assistant while Ross is employed at CH2M HILL, an engineering firm in New York City, where the couple resides.
No date has been set for the wedding.
