The family said Lisa was a devoted employee at the shop and had worked there for more than 20 years.
“She loved to work and had been there for almost a decade,” the family said.
A large area of bush has been cleared near the scene of the collision.
Fennells father is still in hospital.
The woman’s death has also raised questions about the safety of other bald head and shaver workers.
Victoria’s government has been criticized for not requiring them to wear helmets.
Fawns parents say she could have died had the road conditions been more hospitable.
The Government has been asked to look at the possibility of making the minimum requirement for a helmet mandatory.
The Victorian Government has said it will review the current minimum standards for head protection and also make changes to its laws to ensure people are not injured in an accident while using a bald shaver.
The Victoria Police Department said it is reviewing the situation and would make no further comment.
