Lisa Romero-Muniz: Her smile 'brightened the darkest of nights'

Lisa Romero-Muniz, a secretary for Gallup-McKinley County Schools in western New Mexico, was killed in the shooting, school district superintendent Mike Hyatt said.

Her son, Anthony Romero, told CNN she was generous and kind.

"She wore her heart on her sleeve ... she would give you the last dime she had with no questions asked and treated everybody like family."

Anthony Romero said his mother's smile would "brighten the darkest of nights."
She had worked for the school district since 2003 at three different schools and specifically worked as a discipline secretary, acting as an advocate for students during times of discipline.

"As many students have mentioned in some Facebook posts and to many of us, she was there for them and she respected them and tried to work with them as much as she could," Hyatt said.

He said Romero-Muniz was outgoing, kind, and considerate of all those she worked with.
"We cannot express enough the loss that our organization feels at this time, and the heartache we feel for Lisa's husband, children, grandchildren and family," Hyatt said.
