Carol "Lisa" (Bridges) Smith died at hospice on February 15, 2018 in Albuquerque, NM due to complications following surgery. She was 69. Lisa is survived by two daughters, Jordan Cristea (Bill) and Ramona Devine; five grandchildren (Troy, Darion, Scott, Dean, and Alexander); and three step-grandchildren (Ashley, Josh, and Jack).

Lisa was born on October 6, 1948 to Willie Caroll Bridges and Mary Ella (Williams) Bridges of Sulphur Springs, TX. She was raised in Dallas and moved to New Mexico in the 70's, graduating from UNM with a degree in Psychology, and later obtaining a degree from the University of New Mexico School of Law.

Lisa was an accomplished and passionate attorney working in commercial litigation, while providing pro bono services to victims of domestic violence. Lisa retired as shareholder from the firm Bannerman and Williams in 2009. After retirement, Lisa was dedicated to several charities, volunteering her time and services to various hospices, Meals on Wheels, and several ESL and literacy programs.

Lisa lived a disciplined and peaceful life. She was an avid reader. She had a deep appreciation for music, art, and the beauty of nature. She was hardworking, frugal, honest, and real. She had the most beautiful smile.
