Lisa May Torry Smith, 37, died October 19th, 2017 from injuries sustained after being struck by a vehicle, while walking her child to school, in Missouri City, TX.

Lisa was born in Carson City, NV on June 21st, 1980, growing up in the area until moving to Arizona for secondary school and college studies. True to her adventurous spirit, Lisa literally "threw a dart at a map" and when it landed in Florida, picked up and moved to Miami, FL, in 2000 where she worked, played, and finished her studies.

A few years after school, Lisa met her husband Elliot, who was introduced by a family member. Lisa and Elliot quickly fell in love and decided to dedicate their lives to one another through marriage on May 2nd, 2009. Conceived in love, Lisa and Elliot welcomed two beautiful sons into the world, Logan Samuel Smith, 2011, and Owen Tarafa Smith, 2013.

Lisa was a dedicated and loving mother, devoting endless energy to creating a loving, safe, enriching, and adventurous environment for her sons. Lisa made the ultimate sacrifice to protect her child.

She was also a supportive and passionate spouse, who would spend considerable time talking with Elliot, and inspiring confidence to help him succeed in life and fatherhood.

In addition she was a committed and compassionate friend to many. Spending countless hours with friends, helping them by equally being a sounding board, shoulder to cry on, and companion in fun.

Lisa will be missed deeply by her husband, sons, family and dozens of friends. We will carry on her legacy by remembering how much she cared about the people closest to her, continuing on the path that she helped guide, and above all, loving each other and enjoying life as she did.

We love you always Lisa, and will never forget you.

She is survived by her husband and sons, Elliot, Logan, and Owen Smith; mother Elaine Brooks, sister Gina Torry, aunt, cousins, and a multitude of dear friends.

A visitation will be held Friday, October 27, 2017, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Settegast-Kopf Co. @ Sugar Creek where the family will receive friends. A remembrance service will be held at 3 p.m. in the chapel.
