Alisha was born on March 4, 1996 and was the second child born to Gloria Lopez and Eddie Baca. Alisha had a smile that could light up a room, everyone that was ever around her would say her laugh was contagious and she always had something funny to say. She had a loving heart and was such a forgiving, kind person. In her early years she was a great athlete; she played softball, basketball and volleyball. As a young teen she was diagnosed with Lupus, despite dealing with this illness she always wanted to live life to the fullest. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, her favorite thing to do with family was play games and listen to music. She loved being around children, she loved seeing smiles on their faces and would do whatever they wanted just to make them happy. Alisha loved going out to the mountains to find peace. She was fearless and was always up for a new adventure, and she never backed down. Everyone who had the pleasure to know her will greatly miss her, and forever cherish their memories with her.
