Lisa died March 19, 2020, following a three-year-long fight with lung cancer. She passed peacefully, at home in Bethesda, Md., surrounded by her husband and their two sons.

A native of Kansas, Lisa came to Princeton after graduating from Shawnee Mission High School. At Princeton she majored in French and joined Colonial Club. After graduation she spent a year in France as a Fulbright scholar, reading Proust.

Returning to the United States, Lisa graduated from Stanford Law School in 1981 and joined the firm Van Ness, Feldman, Sutcliffe and Curtis in Washington, D.C. where she practiced law for 10 years. In 1989 she married Michael Steinberg, and celebrated in 1991 the birth of their first son, David, and in 1996 a second son, Ethan.

Lisa absolutely loved all things Princeton, and attended Reunions often. Lisa wrote, “We live our lives, we hope to set good examples for our kids, and we try to help others. It took me a few years to figure out that that is pretty much what life is all about.”

The class extends deepest sympathy to Lisa’s husband, Michael Steinberg; and their sons, David and Ethan.
