Lola P. (Swinford) Smith Obituary

Lola P. (Swinford) Smith, 89, went home to be with the Lord on November 1, 2015 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. She was born on October 29, 1926 in Roscoe, Texas to Robert and Lola (Kemp) Swinford.

Lola enjoyed her fulfilling career as a teacher in New Mexico and California. She was a long time member of the Christ Community Church family where she sang in the choir and volunteered wherever and whenever she was needed. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and friends and being there for anything that they might need. She had the most loving spirit and lived life to the fullest. She will be truly missed but never forgotten.

Lola is survived by son Dan Smith and wife Renee, their children Danny Smith, Jonathan Strain and Sally Strain; Son Ron Smith; daughter Diane Bradley and husband Scott, their children Leanne Slater, Shannon Smith and Dillon Bradley; grandchildren Justin and Jennifer Smith; sister Jessie Butler and husband Wright; sister Audna "Sissy" Balko; ten great grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Clifford Smith; son Douglas Smith; brothers, Bob Swinford, Frank Swinford and HJ Swinford; sisters, Mary Scoggin and Nella Isaacs.

We want to give a special thanks to all of the wonderful people who cared for Lola during her battle with pancreatic cancer; her baby sister Sissy, daughter in law Renee and the wonderful people at Hospice Home Care.

A Memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Wednesday November 4, 2014 at Christ Community Church with Pastor Jack Brock officiating.
Should friends desire, contributions may be made to the Legacy Christian School.

The Smith family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the services.
