Macconi, John
John Macconi – Walsenburg World – August 21, 1919 – Dust Explosion Kills 18 at Ojo, Five Escape – Helmet Crew Rush from Trinidad – Presence of Gas and Falls of Rock Delay Reaching Last Four – The worst explosion that has ever taken place in Huerfano County occurred Monday at Oakview, the mining camp of the Oakdale Coal Company 25 miles west of town. It happened in the older workings of the company where 40 miners are employed. The first reports gave the number of dead at 35 or 40, but a checking out of the men brought the casualties down to a smaller number. Three found their way out through an old entry, and of the first three rescued, two are alive, although badly burned. Up to the next morning 12 dead had been removed and later two more were added to the list, but it was necessary to force fresh air into the mine passages before the remainder could be reached. The number then left was six and one more was gotten out Wednesday. Help was rushed to the scene of the disaster, helmet crews and first aid teams from the other Huerfano and Las Animas County mines and it was through their efforts that it was possible to get the men out so soon. One accident occurred that nearly lost one of the rescuers his life. He and another man were bringing out “Big Steve” Christopher, the fire boss, over a big fall of rock when he stumbled and fell on his breathing bag. It’s a miracle that he did not break the bag and cause his asphyxiation with gas. James Dalarumi was the leader of the rescue crew. The cause of the explosion has not been definitely determined, but it is thought that possibly a small explosion of gas exploded dust in the mine. Possibly some of the men secreted matches about their person, though it is the habit to have all the men searched before they enter the mine. The explosion was unusually heavy and the shock was felt for some distance away from the mine, though there was no outside upheaval, but a cave in and a heavy fall of rock on the inside. There were about 100 diggers employed in the Oakview mine. The explosion occurred in the sixth south entry were about 40 men were working. The men working in the other entries got out safely. Superintendent Britton went into the mine shortly after the explosion and penetrated into the gas area, but was overcome, and had to be removed and put to bed. Mine Inspector Thompson of Trinidad and State Mine Inspector Dalrymple of Denver arrived on the scene as speedily as possible. Sheriff Neely and Coroner Thorton also left immediately after hearing of the accident. The dead are: Mike Johnson, single; Juan Balteira, single; John Soltis, who leaves a wife and three children; Frank Pajk, leaving wife and boy of 17; John Macconi, leaving wife and two children; James Blye, leaves wife and child; Joseph R. Franks, known to many in Walsenburg, leaves wife and child; Andrew Guilano, leaves wife and child; Magil Muzzieg, single, an old Mexico miner; James T. Ingram, leaves wife and two children. He and his grandson, A. Oxford, were found locked in each other’s arms. A. Oxford, single; Charles Monson, leaves a wife; Joe Margulski, leaves a wife; Joe Garcia, a soldier boy, leaves a wife and child; Tony Barela, single; William Christopher, single; John Fassaro, single; Frank Divechio, single. At 11 o’clock this Thursday night the bodies of the last three, John Soltis, Frank Divechio, and Frank Pajk, were taken from the mine and have since been removed to town.

MacLeod, Malcolm H.
Rev. Malcolm H. MacLeod – Pueblo Chieftain – January 21, 1919 – Died – MacLeod, Malcolm H., age 57 years, died at 1024 East Eighth Street, Jan. 20. Body at Whiton’s. Pueblo Chieftain – January 21, 1919 – Rev. Malcolm H. MacLeod D. D. Dies of Attack of Pneumonia – Rev. Dr. Malcolm H. MacLeod died of pneumonia at his residence, 1024 East Eighth street yesterday noon. He had been ill but a week with pneumonia, which developed while on a visit to the churches at Brandon and Chivington a week ago. Dr. MacLeod was the Presbyterian evangelist for the Presbytery of Pueblo, and had a wide acquaintance especially in Presbyterian circles all over the state. He was the stated clerk of Pueblo Presbytery, and was frequently called to eastern states to make known the work of Home Missions in the West. He was a native of Nova Scotia, and was 57 years of age. In 1892 he graduated from McCormick Theological seminary and his first pastorate was at Winnemack, Ind. From there he was called to Ontario, California. While there he was married to Miss Mary E. Gray of that city. He came to Colorado as the pastor at Alamosa and then at Fountain. He became the pastor of Westminister church of this city, which afterward became a part of the Mesa Presbyterian church; and twelve years ago he was called to the work of an evangelist for the Presbytery of Pueblo, which covers nearly the whole southern part of the state. His work required an unusual stock of patience and down right common sense. There was a ruggedness of discernment which wore well with the men with whom he was brought into contact. Leaders of Home Missions in the national offices held him in high esteem and frequently sent for him to make known the work of the western churches in the east. A man of sane and yet mellow judgment; one whose home life was unusually inspiring, and whose large acquaintance depended upon him for a wise discernment of ecclesiastical matters. Westminister College conferred the degree of doctor of divinity upon him in 1912, and it was a deserved recognition of faithful service for the Presbyterian Church in Colorado. Two children, Malcolm, a student at Centennial and Margaret, are children left with the widow. Pueblo Chieftain – January 24, 1919 – Funeral Notices – The funeral of Rev. Malcolm H. MacLeod, D. D., was held at the Whiton chapel yesterday morning at ten o’clock. Impressive services were conducted by the Rev. Hugh T. Gary, assisted by the Rev. F. A. Hatch. Mrs. R. Walmsley and Mrs. H.

Mays went to the scene and asked the trouble, when he was accused of throwing a rock at them. After several words passed, Maes was attacked by the men and had it not been for the arrival of Oscar Deus and Anastasio Trujillo, who took a hand in the game, Maes would probably have been cut to death. Maes was taken to the courthouse basement, where a doctor was called and found 14 cuts about his body, but only seven were effective. He is in a serious condition, but may recover. The men who did the cutting took flight but were arrested and lodged in the county jail to await their trial. Those arrested are Casimirio Abeyta, Amadeo Abeyta and Eulojio Abeyta.

Casimiro Abeyta and Amadeo Abeyta were placed under $10,000 bond for each appearance at the next term of the District Court. The bond in the case of Eulojio Abeyta and Eugenio Abeyta against whom there is less evidence was made lighter. These two are out on bond; the others were remanded to jail.

Maldonado, Modesto E.
Modesto E. Maldonado - Huerfano World - March 16, 2017 - Modesto E. Maldonado, aka “Maudy”, passed away on March 11, 2017. He was residing at the Spanish Peaks Veterans Community Living Center in Walsenburg, Colorado. Modesto was born and raised in Walsenburg, Colorado. His parents were Rafael and Lucianita Martinez Maldonado, also from Walsenburg. He married Viola Gutierrez in 1949, to whom he remained married until his passing. They are well known in the Walsenburg area as a dedicated and close couple. Modesto grew up on a family ranch, where his dad and two older brothers Milton and Albert raised sheep and grew fruit trees. Modesto graduated in 1946 from St. Mary’s Catholic School, Walsenburg. He was drafted for WWII, into the US Coast Guard’s Merchant Marines at age 17, serving as a Shipman on the steam ship USS Astoria, delivering food and military supplies to the Aleutian Islands until the end of the war. Upon discharge from military service, Modesto returned to graduate with his original classmates, having accumulated enough credits from previous summer classes. After graduation, Modesto completed one year at Regis College in Denver. In 1948 his father sold the 2000 acre ranch southeast of Walsenburg (just west of I-25) and purchased the Sunset Motel, Grocery, and Gas Station. His father died in 1950 and Modesto took over the running of the business and the care of his mother. He later purchased land east of the motel and built up an overnight trailer park, which he later converted to long term trailer court. Modesto worked seven days a week with the motel and trailer court and at several different daytime jobs over the years. Day jobs included driving a milk truck for the Corsentino Dairy Ranch and working at the creamery in Pueblo; selling New York Life Insurance; as an accountant for the Community Action Program in Trinidad, Colorado; and ultimately at Safeway grocery until he finally retired at age 62. Although the motel, apartments and store were later demolished, he continued to run his trailer park business for several years after retirement. Unlike the other branches of the military, the Merchant Marines were not recognized as veterans and therefore didn’t receive benefits until a lawsuit was settled on January 19, 1988. Mariners Schumacher, Willner, and Reid sued the Secretary of the Air Force, Edward C. Aldridge, Jr. 665 F. Supp. 41 (D.D.C. 1987). The judge ordered the Board to reconsider their denial and the Board granted veteran status to WWII mariners that served between December 7, 1941 and August 15, 1945. Ironically, the Merchant Marines experienced more casualties per capita than any other branch of the military. For that reason, it is considered the most dangerous branch of the military to have served in. Although Modesto considered it an honor to serve his country, he never spoke much about it unless asked. However, due to the diligent efforts of those that pushed for the recognition of Merchant Marines, Modesto was able to receive care at the Spanish Peaks Veterans Community Living Center from May of 2014 through March 2017. Modesto and his family were truly blessed by the loving care and attention he received from the staff and management of the Veterans Living Center. He was proud to wear his white cap with the Merchant Marine logo while at the VA, and he continually received thanks and praise from so many people for his service to his country. Modesto is survived by his wife Viola of 67 years, seven children, Pearl (Levi Crespin), Vernon (Juanita Vallejos), Maudie (Georgia Davis), Janelle (Ken) Saad, Adrian (Brenda Arnett) Maldonado, Tammy Maldonado, and Brenda (Bill) Maldonado; eleven grandchildren, Marlon Crespin, Tage Crespin, Kelan Crespin, Desarey Maldonado, Brandon Maldonado, Mahri Saad, Matthew Maldonado, Brianna Maldonado, Marissa Maldonado, Vanessa Maldonado, and Austin Maldonado, and one great grandson, Dominic Maldonado. Rosary will be at 9:30 am on Saturday, March 25 at St. Mary Church in Walsenburg, followed by Funeral Mass at 10 am. A reception will follow at the Huerfano County Community Center in Walsenburg.

Mallaby, Oliver W.
Oliver W. Mallaby – Pueblo Chieftain – May 23, 1918 – Oliver W. Mallaby Dies Suddenly at His Home in New York City – News of the death of Oliver W. Mallaby will be received with real sadness by a host of Puebloans who knew and respected him in the highest degree. Mrs. A. K. Barwise, an intimate friend of the Mallaby family, received the sad news by wire yesterday that Mr. Mallaby had passed away at the New York City home at 5:30 in the morning. There were no particulars, and there having been no intimation that Mr. Mallaby was in other than the splendid physical condition, he enjoyed when here last summer, the news came as a shock. He was the senior member of the Mallaby-Campbell Investment Company with offices in the Central Block. He had been a resident of this city for many years. He removed to New York, where he became a leading figure with one of the largest insurance companies. The family, consisting of his wife, and two daughters, Mrs. Howard D. White and Miss Julia Mallaby, went to New York to reside, and that is still their home. Retaining his interest in the Pueblo Company, Mr. Mallaby made a number of trips to this city, and was always greeted with the utmost cordiality by his many friends. Mr. Mallaby was a man of lovable disposition, yet strong personality and the strictest integrity. The site of the central block was sold by Mr. Mallaby in 1892, to the T. & H. Pueblo Building Company, which erected the handsome structure of which Mr. Mallaby was placed in charge. Mr. J. E. Campbell later became a partner and since Mr. Mallaby departed from Pueblo, has been in charge of the building. The Mallaby's family owns considerable property in this city, including a handsome residence at 1707 Lake Ave. The late O. W. Mallaby was considered an expert in realty management and values, and for a number of years has been in charge of the Real Estate of the United States Life Insurance Company of New York. It is presumed the funeral and interment will be held in New York. Pueblo Chieftain – May 18, 1918 – Resolutions – Pueblo chapter, the Colorado Society Sons of the American Revolution, records with profound regret and a deep sense of loss the death of Compatriot Oliver William Mallaby. He was born in New York City, May 8, 1856, and was married to Martha Louise Beatty, who was born in New Orleans, La. His two children are Julia Bleeker Mallaby, born in Pueblo, August 13, 1886; and Grace Holmes Mallaby Whitehouse, born in Pueblo, August 13, 1889. He was a descendant of Major William Popham, who was president of the Society of the Cincinnati in 1842 and was major on the staff of General Clinton in the War of the Revolution. A great grandfather of Compatriot Mallaby was Anthony L. Bleecker, major of the First Regiment of New York. He was for many years an honored resident of this city and state and gave valuable service in their upbuilding. His memory will be long cherished by numerous friends. By resolution of the Pueblo chapter, S.A.R., the sincere sympathies of our members are thus extended to the bereaved wife and daughters to whom a copy of these resolutions are expressly sent.

She shared her love by teaching and mentoring others from an early age until the end. She will be greatly missed. A quote from Rama at the age of 26 years in her Log Of Life book under Ambition states: “To be the best citizen I can in the sense of a duty to my fellow man. To gain and impart as much knowledge as possible in the time I have been given.” Those who knew and loved her feel she fulfilled that goal.

Manchester, Minnie Sandoval
Minnie Sandoval Manchester - Chronicle News - February 1, 2007 - Former Trinidad resident, Minnie Sandoval Manchester of Camarillo, CA, passed away on November 22nd of natural causes at the age of 99 years, 9 months. Minnie, the youngest of nine children, was born Maria Herminia Vigil in Tercio, CO, on February 18, 1907. Tercio, a small village, was one of many Colorado Fuel and Iron Corporation (CF & I) company towns. CF & I typically operated the coal mines and owned the towns lock, stock and barrel. The coal and by-products were used at the CF & I steel mill in Pueblo, CO. The miners were paid at the company store, sometimes in script good only at the store. Minnie's father worked at the coke ovens. He died during the flu epidemic of 1917. Her mother never remarried. The family experienced hard times for many years. Minnie married Philip Sandoval in 1923. They moved to Vermejo Park, NM. Philip worked various jobs, including driving the mail truck for his brother-in-law, Florentine Vigil, who was postmaster. In 1930, they moved to Trinidad and bought the Motor Freight Line, which they operated for many years. The line serviced the various CF & I towns and communities between Trinidad and Tercio. Times were lean, but the business survived the coal strikes and recession of the 30's. Minnie's life centered around family values. She had six children. She enjoyed being a wife, mother, and homemaker. Minnie saw to it that her children had a good education and went to church regularly. The children were taught courtesy, respect, consideration, and responsibility. They all had chores and sometimes part-time jobs. To Minnie, work was not gender-related. The family ate dinner together between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., when Philip came home. Minnie had a talent for many things. She was extraordinary, a woman for all seasons. She was a high-energy person with a zest for life and a strong will. Barely 5 feet tall, with an 8th grade education, she was not afraid to tackle anything. She was resourceful. Minnie's "get out there and get the job done" attitude was an inspiration to her family. She helped with the business of bookkeeping, drove a freight truck when drivers were not available, and often went out at night to rescue Philip when he was stranded in a storm or had a vehicle breakdown. Because Philip worked long hours, 6 days a week, Minnie did most of the house repairs and maintenance in addition to taking care of the day-to-day family needs. She fixed the plumbing, painted, hung wall paper, operated a hardwood floor sander, maintained a beautiful garden, sewed clothing for the family, cleaned the septic tank, and skinned deer and elk, afterwards pressure cooking and canning the meat. Sometimes Minnie worked in women's apparel shops, when extra money was needed. She began a 35-year career selling Avon products, winning many awards. She also carried a line of mail-order jewelry, greeting cards, and announcements. During World War II, she helped feed the soldiers and sailors, when the troop trains passed through, be it 11 p.m. or 4 a.m. The day after the war ended, she answered an ad to sell "A History of World War II" book. She got the jump on everyone and sold hundreds. She was always looking for opportunities. There was also time for fun. Minnie always looked forward to dancing on Saturday night with Philip and friends, even after a busy week. There were also house parties with dancing to music played on various instruments, including the piano and violin. The rug was rolled back, a bottle of "'fortified beverage" magically appeared, and the party was on. The children sat wherever, under the dining room table or in the corners, and enjoyed. Minnie played the piano, not very well, but this didn't bother her. One Sunday, after early dinner, she serenaded the family with an old concertina Dad brought home and put on the shelf. She learned to play it on the sly. When we were little children, Santa Claus visited us at Christmas, either Mom or Dad was usually missing. But, one year, they were both there. Another neighbor family had the same experience. It was a mystery for a long time. Minnie also found time to socialize with the ladies in the La Bonita and Cozy Corner clubs. On holiday weekends in the spring and summer, several families often went to the old cabin, which had been salvaged when the CF&I started razing Tercio. Philip and relatives moved the cabin to Torres, 10 miles away. It had kerosene lamps, 3 double beds, running water from the creek, and a classy triple outhouse. The men played cards and fished, the women cooked and chatted, and the kids slept in the open bed of the truck, looking for shooting stars and contemplating the complexity of the universe. Of course, there were also 4th of July picnics in the Stonewall Valley. Minnie never fully recovered after the deaths of Rosella, her oldest child, in 1947 and her husband, Philip, in 1953. She grieved a lot, worked a lot, and started restructuring her life. She still had teenagers at home. She sold the freight business and, in 1955, she moved to New Mexico and then to California to be with family. She supported herself, working long hours selling Avon, bought a house, and saw her children complete their education. She married Wade Manchester in 1965. He died in 1975. Minnie's eyesight was severely diminished by the age of 80; still, she persevered through difficult times for nearly 20 years. Minnie is survived by four children: daughter Phyllis Sandoval of San Luis Obispo, CA, and sons George (Judy) Sandoval of Ventura, CA, James (Betty) Sandoval of Moorpark, CA/ and W.J. "Sandy" Sandoval of Pocatello, ID. Minnie is also survived by the widow of son Vernon, Carol Sandoval, of Chino, CA, eleven grandchildren, thirty-one great-grandchildren, and ten great-great-grandchildren. Preceding her in death were her husband Philip, daughter Rosella, son Vernon, daughter-in-law Katheline, and grandsons Mark and Bryan. Family services were held in California after cremation. Interment will take place at the Trinidad Catholic Cemetery in July, 2007, where she will be reunited with her beloved husband Philip and daughter Rosella. The family wishes to thank the staff at Park Place Village and to acknowledge the comfort and assistance of the Vitas Hospice attendants. We appreciate their love and respect for Minnie in her final days. You are loved. Mom. May you rest in peace. And may you and Dad dance again in the company of Angels.

Mandolini, Bob
Bob Mandolini – Walsenburg World – January 6, 1898 – Two Men Killed – Cold-Blooded Murder Sunday at Pictou – Five Men Under Arrest – Bob Mandolini and Dave Evans Were the Murdered Men. The Capture of John Nigro and Others – A shooting affair occurred at Pictou Sunday evening about 7:30 which resulted in the instant death of two men, Bob Mandolini and Dave Evans. The facts in the case as far as they are known by the general public are as follows: Bob Mandolini was standing behind the bar of his saloon at Pictou, chatting with five men who were standing before the bar, when he fell dead from a shot through the head fired from without through the window. A second shot grazed the chin of Dick Owens and entered the head of Dave Evans before even he had turned his head when he saw Mandolini fall. Three other shots were fired burying themselves in the adobe wall at the back of the saloon. Britton, the deputy sheriff at Pictou, was at the scene almost immediately, and was told by the people who had gathered that someone had run down the railroad track. Suspicion, for reasons unknown to the officers, was fastened upon John Nigro, an Italian, whose cabin was found to be empty and his Winchester gone. Mr. Britton took after this man, who, when he saw him coming, opened fire upon the deputy. Five shots were fired when the man fell to the ground in the shelter of a group of pinons. Mr. Britton then awaited the coming of Sheriff Farr. Mr. Farr and his Under Sheriff, Bud Farmer, searched the clump of pinons, but found no one. Sheriff Farr immediately organized his men, and every road watched, and squads searching the country. Notices were sent to all stations, and sheriffs of surrounding counties notified. Mr. Farr and his men were out all night. In the morning it was found where the man had crawled several rods from the place where he fell, and his trail was immediately taken from there. He struck across country east toward Cucharas. In following his track it was found that he returned three times within half a mile of his home at Pictou. The man was easily tracked because Sheriff Farr discovered that the left shoe of the party who left the pinons was run down at the heel and made an impression in the sand that was easily followed. And impression of the left shoe of the man Nigro exactly corresponds with the tracks made in the sand. Farr and Farmer finally came upon the man in the Anderson pasture. He opened fire upon them at long-distance, and quite a number of shots were exchanged. Undersheriff Farmer circled around, unperceived by the man, to the rear, and found himself within 20 feet of the man just as he was climbing from an arroya. Mr. Farmer sprang forward and dealt the man a blow with his six shooter and forced him to give up his Winchester. The man, however, still had a six shooter and a belt of cartridges. Farmer forced him before him, and, when they came up to the sheriff, the prisoner was disarmed. Just then another deputy came up, the prisoner was placed on this man’s horse and the cavalcade came on the double quick to Walsenburg, followed by an angry crowd from Pictou. The prisoner safely in jail, however, the feelings of the crowd had time to cool. The man John Nigro, offered resistance to the officers from the time he was sighted by the officers until he was placed upon the horse and brought to jail. At the time of his capture he was heavily armed with a six shooter and belt of cartridges, a 40-82 Winchester with 85 rounds of ammunition. Two other men, Charles Capps and Camille Lawrence, were also arrested about this time. After the coroner’s inquest two others were arrested as the tracks seem to show they were with Nigro on the hill where the cartridges were found. The shooting was done from a little raise just across the street and creek from the saloon. Four empty 40-82 Winchester cartridges were found here which the balls taken from the walls of the saloon exactly fitted. The Winchester carried by the man taken in the arroya – John Nigro – was also a 40 and the empty cartridges were the same as those he carried. No one seems to know why John Nigro did the shooting. Whether Mandolini and he had ever had any trouble does not seem to be known, but these are facts which will doubtless come out in the trial. Bob Mandolini, the deceased, is a son of Jacob Mandolini, an old time resident of this county. He is also the brother of Mrs. J. B. Dick of this place. He was about 27 years old. He leaves a wife and two children. The funeral services were held at 2 o’clock Tuesday, Rev. Price officiating. Dave Evans, the other murdered man, was a brother-in-law of Mr. Howell, the superintendent of the Solar Mines. Evans will be taken to Rockvale, Colorado, for burial. He has a wife and two small children there. At the coroner’s inquest over the bodies on Monday, the jury found that the deceased Mandolini and Evans came by their death from a leaden bullet fired from a 40 or 45 Winchester in the hands of some person or persons unknown to them. Sheriff Farr, Undersheriff Farmer, and Deputy Sam Tyler deserve great credit for the manner in which they prosecuted the search for the man Nigro and his accomplices. These officers were out all night and from 7 o’clock Sunday night until 6 o’clock Monday evening had only one meal. Mr. Farr deserves great credit, too, for the able manner in which he organized his men. He was well supported, too, by his able deputies sworn in for the occasion. Walsenburg World – January 13, 1898 – In Justice McBarg’s court yesterday Mike Calabras, Antonio Savant and John Nigro were found guilty of the murder of Robert Mandolini and David Evans at Pictou, January 2, 1898. These parties were placed under a $5,000 bond separately for their appearance at the District Court. They were unable to give bond and were remanded to jail. The officers of this County have worked faithfully and constantly for the apprehension and conviction of the guilty parties. The evidence seems undoubtedly to fix upon these three men as directly concerned in the killing. Walsenburg World – February 17, 1898 – The empanelling of the jury in the John Nigro case began Monday morning and was secured by 12 o’clock. The evidence had been entered and the case went to the jury at 3:30 Tuesday afternoon. At 7:30 in the evening the jury returned a verdict of murder in the second degree. The court at 3:30 Tuesday had immediately proceeded to impanel a jury for the trial of Mike Calebras and Antonio Savant on the same charge as Nigro. The jury was secured by five. The court began to receive testimony Wednesday morning. Walsenburg World – February 24, 1898 – Yesterday at 10:30 a.m. the District Court convened to hear the motions for new trials, to pass sentences upon those convicted and then adjourn. All day Wednesday and the better part of Thursday of last week, was spent in trial of Mike Calabras and Antonio Savant as accomplices in the Pictou murder. Strong circumstantial facts of guilt were produced as to Calabras, but the jury after due and careful deliberation brought in a verdict of not guilty. The court sentenced John Nigro to confinement in the penitentiary at Canon City at hard labor for life or a period of 99 years. Negro will remain in the county jail for 30 days while his attorney files a bill of exceptions. Sheriff Clarke of Trinidad came up Friday and arrested Mike Calabras immediately after his acquittal on the trial for murder at Pictou. He was taken to Trinidad where he will stand trial for a grievous offense.

Margulski, Joe
Joe Margulski – Walsenburg World – August 21, 1919 – Dust Explosion Kills 18 at Ojo, Five Escape – Helmet Crew Rush from Trinidad – Presence of Gas and Falls of Rock Delay Reaching Last Four – The worst explosion that has ever taken place in Huerfano County occurred Monday at Oakview, the mining camp of the Oakdale Coal Company 25 miles west of town. It happened in the older workings of the company where 40 miners are employed. The first reports gave the number of dead at 35 or 40, but a checking out of the men brought the casualties down to a smaller number. Three found their way out through an old entry, and of the first three rescued, two are alive, although badly burned. Up to the next morning 12 dead had been removed and later two more were added to the list, but it was necessary to force fresh air into the mine passages before the remainder could be reached. The number then left was six and one more was gotten out Wednesday. Help was rushed to the scene of the disaster, helmet crews and first aid teams from the other Huerfano and Las Animas County mines and it was through their efforts that it was possible to get the men out so soon. One accident occurred that nearly lost one of the rescuers his life. He and another man were bringing out “Big Steve” Christopher, the fire boss, over a big fall of rock when he stumbled and fell on his breathing bag. It’s a miracle that he did not break the bag and cause his asphyxiation with gas. James Dalarumi was the leader of the rescue crew. The cause of the explosion has not been definitely determined, but it is thought that possibly a small explosion of gas exploded dust in the mine. Possibly some of the men secreted matches about their person, though it is the habit to have all the men searched before they enter the mine. The explosion was unusually heavy and the shock was felt for some distance away from the mine, though there was no outside upheaval, but a cave in and a heavy fall of rock on the inside. There were about 100 diggers employed in the Oakview mine. The explosion occurred in the sixth south entry were about 40 men were working. The men working in the other entries got out safely. Superintendent Britton went into the mine shortly after the explosion and penetrated into the gas area, but was overcome, and had to be removed and put to bed. Mine Inspector Thompson of Trinidad and State Mine Inspector Dalrymple of Denver arrived on the scene as speedily as possible. Sheriff Neely and Coroner Thorton also left immediately after hearing of the accident. The dead are: Mike Johnson, single; Juan Balteira, single; John Soltis, who leaves a wife and three children; Frank Pajk, leaving wife and boy of 17; John Macconi, leaving wife and two children; James Blye, leaves wife and child; Joseph R. Franks, known to many in Walsenburg, leaves wife and child; Andrew Guilano, leaves wife and child; Magil Muzzieg, single, an old Mexico miner; James T. Ingram, leaves wife and two children. He and his grandson, A. Oxford, were found locked in each other’s arms. A. Oxford, single; Charles Monson, leaves a wife; Joe Margulski, leaves a wife; Joe Garcia, a soldier boy, leaves a wife and child; Tony Barela, single; William Christopher, single; John Fassaro, single; Frank Divechio, single. At 11 o’clock this Thursday night the bodies of the last three, John Soltis, Frank Divechio, and Frank Pajk, were taken from the mine and have since been removed to town. The coroner’s inquest will be held at 10 o’clock Monday morning at Walsenburg. Two of the dead miners were members of the Maccabee Lodge; Joseph R. Franks in Walsenburg and Joe Margulski of the Denver Tent. The body of the latter was shipped to Denver Thursday evening where he will have a Maccabee funeral. The funeral of Joseph Risdon Franks will be held in Walsenburg Sunday morning at 10 o’clock under the auspices of the Walsenburg Tent of the Maccabees.

Mariani, M.
Miss M. Mariani – Walsenburg World – January 1, 1914 – Funeral Dishonored – The Walsenburg Correspondent of the Pueblo Star-Journal reports that striking union miners here today interrupted the funeral of Miss M. Mariani, 16-year-old daughter of an Italian miner who refused to go out on strike. The girl had died of typhoid fever and the father who is employed at the Walsen Mine had asked for a military escort at the funeral. The escort was furnished and on the way to the cemetery the militia men had to threaten to arrest some of the union miners in order to prevent an attack on the funeral. The strikers hissed the priest at the church and en route to the cemetery. They lined up before the church along the road and shouted and hissed the passing funeral cortège until the militia, exasperated past endurance, ordered silence on penalty of arrest of the heartless offenders. This is the second occasion at Walsenburg where a funeral procession has not proven too sacred for the strikers to seize the occasion to vent their spleen. The other occasion occurred on the day of the LaVeta murder and passed unnoticed.

Marquis, Frank
Frank Marquis – Walsenburg World – January 23, 1902 – Explosion at Pictou – An explosion occurred in the Pictou mine Monday morning, killing Frank Marquis, J. H. Brewer and Pete Johnson, (colored) and injuring Milton Phipps, Andrew Simons and Dominick Peano. J. H. Brewer, who was suffocated by the fire damp leaves a wife and eight children. Frank Marquis, who is about 24 years of age, was apparently suffocated but had some bad bruises on him. Milton Phipps, brother of Superintendent Phipps, was badly bruised about the head, hands and upper part of the body. Andrew Simons, a Slavonian, was badly burned and otherwise hurt. His forearm was broken and a piece of wood driven into his neck back of and under the left ear to the depth of one inch and a half. Phipps and Simons were sent to the C. F. & I. Hospital at Pueblo on Tuesday morning. Dr. Baird was soon on the ground and gave such relief he could to the living. Coroner Ahlquist and the coroner’s jury, after ascertaining all the facts, brought in a verdict that the accident had been unavoidable. No one is able to account for the explosion, nor is it known whether it was gas or powder. In the former history of the mine, but little, if any gas has ever been found in the entry, where the accident occurred. The place had been inspected as usual by the fire boss, whose duty it is to go through all parts of the mine every morning before the men go to work, for the purpose of detecting the presence of gas, and that he reported a little pocket of gas in one of the old abandoned rooms, but it was not sufficient to cause any alarm whatever. The men had been to work about an hour when the explosion was heard. There is no one able to give any explanation as to the cause and it will probably remain a mystery. The death of the three men was due to suffocation and the others were injured by suffocation and concussion. Brewer and Johnson had been in this part of the country for only a short time and very little is known about them. Frank Marquis is a young man who lived in this country for many years and leaves many relatives and friends to mourn his loss it is said the men who were injured will recover. Walsenburg World – January 23, 1902 – Frank Marquis, who was killed on Monday by the Pictou mine explosion, was buried on Tuesday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. from the residence of his parents on W. 7th St. The interment took place at the Masonic Cemetery, attended by a large concourse of friends.

Martiko, Pete
Pete Martiko – Walsenburg World – March 15, 1907 – Killed in a Mine – Pete Martiko, an Italian miner, was killed Wednesday morning by a fall of rock at the Rocky Mountain Mine, run by the Consolidated Coal Company at McGuire, Colorado. The deceased is a single man about 35 years old and has no family or relatives in this country. Coroner Lamme of LaVeta came down yesterday morning and impaneled a jury and held an inquest over the body. In the course of the testimony it was brought out that it was known that the roof was bad, but it appeared that nothing was done to secure the roof. Martiko entered the next morning and hardly begun work when a wedge-shaped piece of rock of several tons fell on him, killing him instantly. There are a large number of those wedge-shaped pot rocks in the Consolidated Mine. They have their base in the roof of the working rooms and their apex points upwards into the solid rock. One of the first deaths in this mine from that cause was that of Superintendent Whiles’ own father, which occurred soon after the mine was opened up. In the case yesterday the coroner’s jury brought in a verdict that the deceased had come to his death by a fall of rock in the Consolidated Mine and that it was owing to the criminal negligence of the management of the mine.

Some 12 years ago Mr. Palmer, her father, came from Missouri on account of ill health and purchased a farm near Malachite.

About eight years ago the deceased was married to Mr. Martin. Two children were born to them of whom one remains. The disease that ended the father’s life preyed upon that of the daughter. Nearly a year ago in the hope of improvement her husband took her to California, but instead of betterment it increased the difficulty, so in the autumn they returned to LaVeta. For a time she seemed better but of late has gradually failed till death brought release. Mrs. Martin was a lady of excellent ability and worth of character and very much loved and esteemed. She was an earnest Christian, warmly attached to the church of her choice. It’s a sad blow to her husband whose untiring attention to her comfort and welfare was so marked.

Martinez, Adolpho
Adolpho Martinez – Walsenburg World – September 21, 1916 – Adolpho Martinez Dies – Man Who Attempted to Hold up Italians Died Saturday – Inquest Held Saturday Afternoon – Adolpho Martinez, the prizefighter, who attempted to hold up three pedestrians on 10th St. and was shot in the neck, died Saturday. An inquest was held Saturday afternoon and a verdict of death from a gunshot wound inflicted in self defense was reached. The testimony showed that Martinez left his house early in the evening and attended a picture show, in which a robbery scene was depicted. He returned home, left his good clothes in a shed and put on some old clothes and a mask. He entered his brother’s house and took a pistol from there, which was later found near the scene of the hold up at a place where Martinez told the officers he had thrown it. One of the Italians who was held up testified that Martinez pointed a gun at them and demanded that they give up their money. They all had money, having just been paid off at the Walsen mine. Martinez snapped his gun at one of the men three times, and seeing him attempting to shoot, the middleman of the Italians pulled his gun and shot Martinez. Fearing that they would get in trouble the three men then ran away and went to their homes at Walsen.

Alfonso Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - December 3, 2017 - Motorcycle driver killed in I-25 Pueblo crash identified - The victim of a fatal motorcycle accident that took place Saturday evening on Interstate 25 has been identified by Pueblo County Coroner Brian Cotter as 35-year-old Pueblo resident Alfonso Martinez. Prior to the accident, Pueblo police dispatch received a call of a careless, reckless driver on a motorcycle traveling in the wrong direction on Interstate 25. The reporting party informed dispatch that the motorcycle was heading northbound in the southbound lanes. "Within seconds, we got another call that he had been hit," Pueblo PD Sgt. Howard Jackson told The Chieftain. "He collided head-on with a (red Dodge Ram 2500) pick-up truck." Another truck, a Ford F150, was also involved, and Jackson said it appeared the motorcycle initially struck the Dodge, then crashed into the Ford before coming to rest. Martinez was pronounced dead at the scene. Jackson said police did not suspect drug or alcohol use on the part of the two pick-up truck drivers, but whether or not the motorcycle driver was under the influence at the time of the crash is still under investigation. Toxicology tests are pending. The accident resulted in the closure of both southbound lanes of the interstate at mile marker 95 for several hours. During the closure, traffic was diverted off the highway at Indiana Avenue, south to Pueblo Boulevard and then back onto the interstate while investigators worked the scene. Jackson told the Chieftain that the motorcycle likely entered onto interstate at the Pueblo Boulevard off-ramp.

Whether he lay on the track or staggered on it just before the train came is not quite certain. When the engineer of the LaVeta (down train) saw him he was lying between the rails but so near that he could not possibly stop the train before it struck the unfortunate man. He was mutilated almost past recognition by his friends. His head was cut off, brains scattered along the track, right arm cut off at the elbow, both legs broken and his whole body mangled. Coroner Ahlquist was telephoned for and an inquest was held just after noon and the above facts elated. The man was unmarried, but his parents, brothers and sisters are living at Cucharas.

Antonio (Tony) Gilberto Martinez - Huerfano World - December 13, 2015 - Antonio (Tony) Gilberto Martinez, 91, of Walsenburg, CO passed away on December 11, 2015 in Arvada, Colorado. Tony was a sixth generation rancher, husband, father, and a friend to many. Tony was one of six children born to Juan Andres and Maria Martha Archuleta Martinez on the family ranch in Badito, Colorado. He was born on January 1, 1924. As soon as the children were capable, they learned to work and contribute to the overall functioning of the family ranch on the Huerfano River. After the early morning chores were done, it was heading off to a one-room schoolhouse on horseback to learn the three R’s and to face the daily challenge of learning the English language. At age nine, he was given the responsibility of plowing fields with a team of draft horses. He got bumped off the driver’s seat, landing very close to the sharp implements. Thinking quickly, he was able to shout a command to the horses to halt, narrowly escaping serious injury or death. Tony understood at this young age the importance of strong horsemanship skills and continued to hone these skills over a lifetime. Many stories illustrate how strong , self-reliant, and ambitious Tony was. As a young boy, he milked cows and sold the surplus milk to purchase his first bicycle and thus began his career as a prosperous rancher and businessman. Tony’s goal of graduating from high school was not an easy endeavor due to transportation issues. When the school bus no longer picked up schoolchildren near the ranch, Tony took it upon himself to stay at an abandoned gas station where the bus did pick up the students. He did not have electricity, heat or running water. He went to school during the week and returned to the ranch on week-ends to keep up with his share of the chores on the ranch. He graduated from Huerfano County High school in 1942 and the next September married his beloved Ernestine Salazar in Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Gardner, Colorado. With his wife’s wisdom, foresight, and homemaking skills, they worked as a team to raise their three daughters and build their family business. There wasn’t a night that went by that Tony was not on his knees in prayer asking for guidance and expressing his thankfulness. In addition to ranching, Tony operated the Martinez Grocery store on South Main Street in Walsenburg. He sold and delivered groceries to the early miners and residents in the area and some will remember Tony as their school bus driver at Walsenburg High School. Tony was active in civic and church affairs and was a member of several agricultural groups, including Colorado Cattlemen’s Association and the Upper Huerfano Soil Conservation District. With his knowledge of ranching and use of conservation practices, he made tremendous progress in improving his Bear Creek ranch. In 1986, he was named Conservationist of the Year. In later years, he and Ernestine traveled abroad and enjoyed many family outings and gatherings. He loved nature and was always in awe of God’s perfect creations. Tony is survived by his three daughters, Patricia Neeman (David) of Westminster, Cathy Pavlick (Gerald) of Billings, Montana, and Martha Duran of Westminster, Colorado; five grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; sisters Della Velarde of Walsenburg and Rachel Cordova of Tustin, California; brother, Frank Martinez of Albuquerque, NM; and numerous nieces and nephews. Services were on Friday, December 18, 2015 at 10:30 am at St. Mary Catholic Church in Walsenburg, Colorado.

Martinez, Arlene V.
Arlene V. Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - March 1, 2017 - Arlene V. Martinez, 61 years young, passed away peacefully on Feb. 25, 2017, at home surrounded by her family. She loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, read and studied the Bible daily. Preceded in death by her mother, Annie; and father, Gabriel Ornelas. Arlene is survived by husband, Rick Martinez; daughters, Carrie L. Gomez and Sara Gomez; grandsons, Christopher and Jeremiah Gomez; siblings, Gina (Tom) Guerror, Bill Ornelas, Tommy Ornelas, Audra (Pete Valdez) Ornelas; and stepfather, Archie Velasquez; numerous uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and friends. Leanie, as she was known by family, loved her daughters and most precious gifts from God, her grandchildren. What she loved to do was travel, and especially being near the ocean. Travels took her to Atlantic City, New York, Charleston S.C., Pensacola, Fla., Phoenix and L.A. Arlene graduated from Pueblo County High School in 1973. She wanted to pursue a career in nursing, but health problems would prevent that in 2005. But she would continue her education, and in 2008, she received her bachelor's degree in sociology from CSU-Pueblo. She enjoyed running, riding her bicycle and shopping; she couldn't pass up a sale. Arlene loved to watch "Days" and had it recorded so she wouldn't miss an episode. A Broncos fan who would be the first to yell out, "INCOMPLETE" against the opposing team's failed pass. Then she would go shopping for purses. Leanie spent many years in Denver, where she raised her family. A great cook for green chile and enchiladas, she baked and loved to have her sweets, including pastries and candy of all kinds, like cinnamon suckers, peanuts with M&Ms and candy bars. Then, she went shopping for clothes. She worked at several jobs in Denver, where she made friends easily, including Lowry's snack foods. She returned to Pueblo and began working at Boeing, where she built wire harnesses for the best rocket in the world. She and her friends there were known as "Las Chicas." She also met her future husband there whom she would marry in 2008. And then she went shopping for shoes. Arlene was a creative and talented person; she would draw, make Christmas wreaths and even a stone sculpture. Arlene was diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy with Parkinsonism in 2014, a very rare neurological disease without a cure. Symptoms included mild tremors to restless leg syndrome, low blood pressure that might cause her to fall if she stood too quickly after laying or sitting. There also would be loss of motor control, which would eventually cause her to need assistance in all of her daily activities. Through all of this, she prayed for a cure so she could remain with her family to make sure they would be alright. When her daughters and grandsons would visit from Denver, nothing else mattered as this was her best medicine. Leanie fought this disease for over three years, but she would lose. A special thank you to her caregivers, Gabrielle Pacheco, Mo Cordova and Phyllis Robinson. She is with God now; and when she can leave His side, she will go shopping and get things ready for those to follow. Rosary will be at 6 p.m. today, at Adrian Comer Garden Chapel. Memorial Mass will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 2, 2017, at St. Joseph Catholic Church. Pueblo Chieftain - March 3, 2017 - Arlene Martinez. A correction, please: Arlene Martinez passed away Friday, Feb. 24, 2017.

Martinez, Eliseo (Mrs.)
Mrs. Eliseo Martinez – Walsenburg World - April 5, 1907 - Killed on Bear Creek - Eliseo Martinez, who lives on Bear Creek, came into town yesterday morning and reported that his wife had shot herself the night before with a 22-calibre rifle. It is not generally believed, however, that it is a case of suicide, but that it is rather a case of wife-murder. Both parties had been in town all day Wednesday and, according to the husband’s report, when they reached home the woman went into the house secured the rifle and deliberately shot herself. The shooting is alleged to have taken place at six o’clock in the evening. Coroner Lamme came down this morning and will hold an inquest. In the meantime care is being exercised that the husband, Eliseo Martinez, does not get away. Walsenburg World – April 9, 1907 – Coroner’s Jury Verdict – The coroner’s jury in the inquest over the death of Mrs. Eliseo Martinez, who died at Bear Creek last Wednesday afternoon from the effect of a gunshot wound, brought in a verdict Friday afternoon that the deceased came to her death from a gunshot wound inflicted by an unknown party or parties. In the testimony before the jury the husband, Eliseo Martinez, reported that after leaving town last Wednesday and when they reached home he got out of the wagon to hitch the horses and his wife reached for a 22 caliber rifle that was leaning against the dashboard, and that the next thing he knew she was shot. He took her out of the buggy and carried her into the house. This happened about 6 o’clock. He did all he could for her and about 9 o’clock went out and informed the neighbors. When the neighbors arrived she was still alive but unable to speak. Dr. T. D. Baird, who made a post mortem examination, said the bullet entered the right side of the head about 2 ½ inches above the ear and came out at the left side about 1 inch above the ear. A bullet ranging this way could not possibly have been inflicted in the manner described by Martinez. In the doctor’s opinion the wound was inflicted by a bullet of a larger caliber than that claimed by Martinez. While the jury did not fix the killing upon Martinez, a warrant has, nevertheless been issued for him, and he is at present in the county jail awaiting a preliminary examination. Besides a 22 caliber rifle which Martinez claimed did the work the officers found a much larger rifle in the house, and it is the theory that Martinez killed his wife with the larger gun.

Martinez, José delaLuz
José delaLuz Martinez – Walsenburg World – January 19, 1904 – Body Recovered – The 26th of last March, José delaLuz Martinez, a Mexican sheepherder was reported lost. There were two sheep camps within 2 miles of each other in the vicinity of Rattlesnake Buttes. Martinez had charge of one. On the evening of March 26, 1903, he was returning to his own camp from a visit to his neighbor. It was dark when he finished his visit and left for home. He was never seen again alive. Searching parties scoured the country for him. It was intimated that he had been murdered. When the body of Mr. Vories was found at the foot of the Greenhorn it was thought that it was probably that of Martinez, though how he had wandered so far was not accounted for. Last Wednesday a Mexican herder while strolling at the foot of a cliff found the body of a man lying under a ledge of rock at the base of the bluff. It was that of the long-lost Martinez. The man’s neck was broken but otherwise there was no evidence of violence. In making his way home in the dark it was evident that he had fallen over the precipice and had broken his neck. The place of the fatal accident was but a short distance from the home camp. In the many searchings that had been made the body was not found because of the manner in which it was shielded from view by the ledge under which it lay. Searches had even been made at this very point. Probably Martinez rolled into his hiding place in his death convulsions. The coroner was notified of the find on Wednesday and on Thursday left for the scene to hold an inquest. Martinez was about 56 years of age at the time of his death. The body was buried in the Catholic Cemetery Saturday with appropriate services.

The shooting took place on Fifth Street near the school house. Martinez was driving by in a wagon when Lopez hailed him and began firing the fatal shots each one taking effect and any one of them being sufficient to cause death. The body was removed to Campbell’s undertaking rooms and prepared for burial. Lopez was lodged in jail. The shooting was the outcome of domestic difficulties of long-standing. Politically both parties were in sympathy. Walsenburg World – February 15, 1900 – District Court – The regular February term of District Court convened on the 13th with Judge Charles C.

Before the noon hour by order of the court an open venire of 29 new jurors was placed in the hands of the officers by the clerk. At 10 o’clock on Wednesday the work of selecting a jury in the matter of the People versus Lopez was begun. By 1:45 the following jurors were accepted and sworn to try the cause: S. D. Curtis, W. E. Brown, Robert Marshall, C. B. Aiken, D. B. Castello, Jasper Bruce, William Fowler, J. P. Erwin, W. Boyd, Joe Russell, William Babbitt, P. Dominguez. The introduction of testimony was begun before 3 and continued in the night session last night.

Walsenburg World – February 22, 1900 – District Court Adjourned – The regular term of the District Court closed on Saturday. The jury in the case of the People versus Lopez brought in a verdict of guilty of murder in the second degree.

Let us all be reminded of his love by remembering Joey's simple nightly prayer "God bless Mama and Papa, Grandmas and Grandpas, all my aunts uncles, cousins and my friends" Rest in peace my Joey Brown. Sadly missed by your family.

Joshua Jacob Cleto Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - January 12, 2015 - A 27-year-old Pueblo man and a Colorado Springs woman were killed Monday morning in a two-vehicle accident on Interstate 25 near Fountain. According to the Colorado State Patrol, Joshua Martinez was driving a 2001 Ford Mustang north on I-25 at 9:15 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle and went across the center median into the southbound lanes where it struck a 2013 Kenworth semitrailer pulling a tanker trailer. The Mustang struck the left side of the semi and traveled under the trailer hitting the rear axle. The impact caused the Mustang to be pushed backward and ended up in the center median. Martinez and a passenger, 22-year-old Amber Pacino of Colorado Springs were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the vehicle. Both were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the semi, Paul Hamelin, 55, of Pueblo West, was able to drive off to the shoulder of the road after impact. Hamelin was wearing a seat belt and was not injured.

According to a release from the sheriff’s office, deputies were responding to the area to check on a fire that was reported burning in the backyard of one of the homes. “Deputies responding to the call discovered a male in his mid-40s outside the home where the fire was reported to have occurred who began acting suspiciously. The male fled away from responding deputies, and as one of the deputies attempted to subdue the male, the deputy was attacked and as a result the male was shot and succumbed to his injuries,” said the Las Animas County Sheriff’s Office. The deputy responsible for the shooting has been placed on “routine” leave, said the sheriff’s office. The sheriff’s office has not said yet if the deputy was injured, or not, during the attack. Larry Martinez, an investigator with the Third Judicial District Attorney’s Office, said the Colorado Bureau of Investigation would be the lead agency in charge of investigating the incident, as they do for all officer-involved shootings. Las Animas County Sheriff James Casias said in a Thursday morning phone call that he had no other information that could be released at this time, but commented on the tragic incident. “It really is an unfortunate incident,” Sheriff Casias said. “We don’t know what’s going to happen in anyone’s life, not just today, but within the next 20 minutes.” Identification of the deceased man has not been released pending notification of next of kin.

The Las Animas County Coroner's Office identified the deceased as Kristian Martinez, age 44, of Valdez, Colorado. Las Animas County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call of a shed fire in the backyard of a Valdez home in the 20500 block of Highway 12, just before 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11, 2017. When deputies arrived at the residence, they discovered a 44-year-old male outside of the home, who began acting suspiciously. The man ran from the law enforcement officials, then apparently attacked the deputies as they attempted to subdue him. The man was shot during the altercation and later pronounced dead. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been requested by the Las Animas County Sheriff’s Office to assist in the investigation of a deputy-involved shooting occurring in Valdez, Colorado, on October 11, 2017, according to a Thursday, October 19 press release from the CBI. It’s believed Martinez was a relative of the homeowner where the structure fire occurred. Unconfirmed reports claim that Martinez may have attacked a deputy with a large pitchfork. Deputy Henry Trujillo, a longtime veteran of the LACSO, is on paid Administrative leave during the investigation, per policy. CBI agents are working with the LACSO and the Third Judicial District Attorney’s Office to investigate the deputy-involved shooting. An investigator with the Third Judicial District Attorney's Office was asked for comments on the ongoing investigation, but deferred all questions to the CBI as the lead agency in the investigation. CBI Communications Director Susan Medina published a brief statement via e-mail in response to a request for further information about the investigation. "Our official comment is: CBI agents continue to investigate the incident," Medina wrote.

Martinez, Louis George
Louis G. Martinez - Cortez Journal - September 22, 2011 - Louis G. Martinez returned to our Heavenly Father on Sept. 16, 2011. He was in the embrace of his loving family at the time of his passing. Louis was born in Trinidad, Colo. on April 22, 1934. He was born to Jose Domingo Martinez and Jennie Julianita Montoya. He was one of ten children. Louis married the love of his life on October 20, 1953. They shared 58 loving years, and raised four children together. He was a member of the Army National Guard for 33 years. He retired from the Guard in 1994. Louis was affectionately called "Grandpa" in his Unit, the 928th Medical Ambulance Unit. Louis worked at several jobs. He was Mechanic for Keesee Motors; he worked for Union Carbide as a skip tender and also worked in the construction trade. Louis had the most gentle soul. A resident of both Cortez and of Yuma, Ariz., he was loved by all who met him. He was one of the most honest, hardworking men you could ever meet. He was an exceptional husband, father, brother and Grandpa. Although Louis had many illnesses and lived the last part of his life in pain, he always met everyone he saw with a smile. He loved the Lord and prayed every day. We were given a small miracle on Sept. 2nd, when we almost lost him. But God let him come back to us for a short time.

Lucile Martinez – Walsenburg World – May 22, 1906 – Aguilar Murder Trial – Trinidad, Colorado, May 18 – D. Montoya and J. Garcia were today placed on trial in the District Court on a charge of murder. The trial promises to be the most important of the May term. While walking along the road near her home in the vicinity of Aguilar some six weeks ago, Mrs. Lucile Martinez, a young and handsome Mexican woman, was shot and killed by Montoya. The weapon used belonged to Garcia, who was with Montoya at the time of the killing. Montoya claims that the shooting was accidental, while the relatives of the dead woman claim that he was madly in love with her, and because she refused to leave her husband and elope with him he murdered her. All the parties in the tragic affair are very prominent in Aguilar, and the trial promises to bring out some sensational developments.

The Dodge then ran into the northwest end of the bridge before being driven to a stop. The Toyota ran off the right side of the road and went over the southeast bridge abutment and became airborne. The truck then struck the opposite side of the embankment, and flipped onto its top before sliding down the incline, ejecting the driver, and coming to rest on its right side. The driver of the Dodge, identified as Armando Lopez, 33, of Branson, was not injured, and was seen walking away from the scene. He subsequently has been arrested and is in custody at the Garcia Justice Center on an INS hold. The female driver of the Toyota was fatally injured and was identified as Mariah Martinez, 16, also from Branson. The crash is still under investigation by the Accident Reconstruction Team. It is unknown if alcohol and drugs are involved, but excessive speed appears to be a factor.

She was born on July 12, 1949 in Trinidad, Colorado to the late Mike L. and Nettie Zamora. She graduated from Trinidad Catholic High School in 1967. On July 22, 1967 she married her high school sweetheart, the love of her life George (Java) Martinez and in 1969 moved to Denver. She has two children, George Michael Martinez and Jessica (Tom) Neal.

Marie touched the lives of many people. She worked as a Paralegal for Colorado Legal Society for almost 25 years. Everyone who knew Marie can attest that she was a strong advocate for her clients and her knowledge and expertise ensured that they were treated with the respect and fairness they deserved. Marie's goal in life was to help all in need. Her zest for life and love for her family were evident until her last breath. She was small in stature but as she said "look out, dynamite comes in small packages." She is best described as spunky, ornery, feisty, loving and strong-willed. Her description of happiness was having all her family over to celebrate holidays, birthdays or simply have a meal with her. Her cooking was unbelievable and her salsa should have been bottled and sold. She fought for 16 years with health problems, but it was not until March 2011 that she knew she would have to give up her work. She never complained or felt her burden was too heavy. Her faith was strong and never waivered. Rest in peace and know you will be missed; your memory will forever be in our heart. Family can be contacted at 2060 W. 52nd Place, Denver, CO 80221.

Martinez, Orlando
Orlando Martinez - Dignity Memorial - October 4, 2010 - Orlando was born to the proud parents of Blas and Katherine Martinez in Trinidad, CO on March 15, 1942. He has 2 brothers: Edward Martinez and Ernest Martinez. Orlando lived in Denver, CO most of his life going to Sacred Heart Catholic School from the first grade to the eighth, then to Cole Junior High School for ninth grade and then went to North High School where he graduated. He went to college for four years and obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Business. While there he won various awards. He was MVP and selected to play on Colorado's State team. He was very proud of his accomplishments. In 1963 through 1964, Orlando was the band manager for "The Star Lites." He successfully booked numerous gigs for them to play all over Colorado. He loved music and being a part of it was a great achievement for him. In 1964, he met a girl named Joann Vasquez. They dated for a brief amount of time. They decided they were in love and wanted to share their lives together forever. On November 20th, 1965, Orlando and Joann made it official; they were joined in marriage...Joann became his beautiful wife. They went on to have 5 children: Denny, Sandra, Orlanda, Chris, Gerald and 5 wonderful grandchildren. He really enjoyed his family and loved them very much. His family kept him busy with various school events and family activities. Orlando, lived life to the fullest and enjoyed the many things life had to offer him. Anywhere he went he always had a smile on his face and made new friends, no matter where he was. Anyone who crossed his path took a liking to him, he was so likable and funny! He was a happy go lucky person, always able to make light of any situation. He gave of himself unselfishly and always helped others. One or Orlando's favorite sayings was he was the cutest one in the family. Jokingly he would call a lot of people "Fayo or Faya," he would say it meant "very good friend." He loved to gamble, especially when he won! He was a true Bronco fan and loved his Broncos regardless if they won or lost. He used to say that Josh McDaniels would call him for the coming week's game plan. Now Josh McDaniels will have to make his own game plans. I'm sure Orlando will be watching and rooting for them in Heaven. His life was taken early due to illness. Maybe, God thought it was time for him to suffer no more, so he took him in his arms to be in Heaven with his mother, father and all the family and friends we've lost over the years. Four days prior to his passing, he had and insulin attack, which left him tired and wasn't coherent. After awakening he told his wife, Joann, he had seen a beautiful whit light; it made him feel very much at peace. As he looked down, he saw a yellow light; he heard a voice...it said to him, "It wasn't his time to go, not yet." Joann said after having this discussion with Orlando, she knew he would not be afraid to die when his time came. His time came sooner than what we expected, his death was a peaceful one. We believe the Lord takes us when he is in need of our services in Heaven. Guess he needed someone to help make all his angels laugh and smile as Orlando did for all of us while he was here. Orlando will always be remembered by his wife Joann and his family and friends. We will always love you, Orlando.

Martinez, Rose
Rose Casias Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - April 7, 2017 - Rose Casias Martinez was called upon Tuesday morning, April 4, 2017, to partake in a banquet prepared for her by her mother, to celebrate her being presented perfect before her Abba Father, for the ultimate reunion. She is no longer in or of this world but while she was here, she was an instrument of the Gospel of Grace. A vessel of honor and a true Ambassador of Yeshua. Her Bible testifies to the many, many hours she spent as a disciple of God's holy word. Tattered but treasured, always nearby, constantly poured over and deeply cherished. The more tattered her Bible, the more renewed was her spirit. She was a prayer warrior always willing to pray for anyone, at anytime for any reason. This is and forever will be her greatest gift and her eternal legacy. She loved and prayed for her children, her grandchildren, her brothers and her whole family. She even prayed for those who hurt her. If anyone who ever lived deserved to be blessed with the desires of her heart, it is her. She persevered in truth, never, ever wavered in her faith and remained anchored to God's holy sac-red word. For all the thousands of people she prayed for, do not be dismayed, for she is in a new position much closer to the ear of the Almighty. The greatest teachers in the universe are those who teach others how to fall in love with Yeshua. This is her, the greatest teacher our family has ever known. We will all miss her as much as she missed her mother but we cannot help but grieve and be joyful at the same time. After all, she is the one who taught us how to.

Mason, George
George Mason – Walsenburg World – February 16, 1911 – Body Found after Nine Years in Broadhead Mine – Diggers employed in the old Broadhead Mine, near Aguilar, yesterday made an interesting find – that of parts of a human skeleton which mine officials believed to have been the body of one of the two victims of an explosion in this mine over nine years ago. Residents of this section at that time will remember that of the four victims, the bodies of only two were recovered, those of George Greenville and Harry E. Keye, while William Gilbraith was taken out alive, though badly burned. The other two men known to have been in the mine were George Parker and George Mason, and no traces have ever been found of either body to this day. Soon after the explosion in 1902, the shaft was abandoned, and only recently has it been reopened for operation. Much interest is centered in the identification of the body found, and no effort will be left unused to determine which of the two it is.

Mather, Charles
Charles Mather - Chronicle News - September 1, 2006 - Details of Wednesday’s I-25 work zone accident - Following yesterday’s report, details of the accident that occurred on I-25 that claimed the life of one Colorado Department of Transportation worker were made available. “This is another needless tragedy on Colorado’s highways,” said Bob Torres, CDOT Region Director. “These crashes are preventable if drivers would just slow down and use extra caution when driving near highway workers.” The multiple vehicle crash 22 miles south of Pueblo involved a 2000 Freightliner driven by Robin Kirkland, 36 of Beulah, Colo. and a 1996 Toyota Tacoma pickup driven by Bette L. Waitman, 68, of Albuquerque, N.M. According to Sergeant Luke Armstrong of Troop 2D Pueblo, both vehicles were traveling northbound in the left lane near milepost 71 in an active construction zone with the right lane closed for re-paving. The pickup was traveling in front of the Freightliner, and had slowed for traffic when the Freightliner failed to reduce its speed, veered to the right and collided with a Rotomiller machine actively removing asphalt, being operated by Charles Mather, 34, a CDOT employee of Pueblo West. The semi then collided with the Toyota and spilled its load of large boulders onto the roadway and the Toyota. The Rotomiller rolled onto its left side, ejecting Mather and erupting into flames. As a result of the initial impact, a 2000 International CDOT dump truck, driven by Norman Thacker, 57, of Rye, Colo. which was in front of the Rotomiller sustained damage from the flying debris. A second CDOT worker, Gerald Buchanan, 48, of Boone, Colo. who was standing near the right rear of the Roto-miller, jumped over the east guardrail to avoid the crash and fell approximately 20 feet down into a dry creek bed and sustained serious injuries. Kirkland, Waitman and her front seat passenger, Jerry Waitman, 70, also from Albuquerque, were all transported from the scene to St. Mary Corwin in Pueblo, Colo. where they were treated for injuries and released. Mather was transported to St. Mary Corwin where he was pronounced dead at 12:14. Buchanan was transported to Parkview Medical Center and was admitted. Thacker sustained no injuries and remained at the scene. The crash remains under investigation, but alcohol/drug involvement are not considered contributing factors. Mather has been employed with CDOT since June of 2005. He is survived by wife Leena, who is pregnant and is due in October. Mather is the 24th CDOT employee killed in a work zone since 1951. The injured CDOT employee, Jerry Buchanan is listed in critical condition with two shattered ankles. “The people working on our roadways are mothers, fathers, brothers, and friends,” added Torres of the Colorado Department of Transportation. “Today is a very sad day knowing that an unborn child will never know its father.”

Matteson, George T.
Lt Col (USAF Ret) George T. Matteson - Dignity Memorial - April 17, 2011 - George T. Matteson, father to four children and grandfather to seven, passed away April 16th, 2011 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He began his life on September 19th, 1932 in Fort Collins, Colorado but soon found himself in Walsenburg, Colorado being raised with his two sisters and one brother by his loving parents. When he was of sufficient age, he left to attend Seminary for the Catholic Priesthood. He was in many ways a very private man and, for reasons known only to him, chose to leave that path after two years to briefly dabble in a career in broadcast journalism before finally devoting himself to the United States Military. In the United States Air Force he started out at the bottom as an Airman, ultimately retiring as a decorated officer with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel having served his country for almost 30 years with the utmost energy, integrity and imagination. He served us, his family, with an even greater energy, integrity and imagination but blended this with a steadfast love, accepting our failings with quiet support and celebrating our successes with enthusiasm. In 1957 he found and married Donna Jean Mullen, a woman of a strength and resilience equal to his own, and through a nomadic 32 years of military life, raised us, their children, in many different houses but always in one home. It was obvious to those who knew them that in their shared time together they invented a special, unique bond out of the many challenges and opportunities in a life of predictable uncertainty. When she passed away suddenly in 1989, it clearly took a toll on him but he never lost his equilibrium and he never lost his sense of curiosity about the life that surrounded him. He always seemed to be looking for new challenges with a pragmatic and optimistic eye, willing to accept with his usual resilience and faith the changes, both easy and hard, that come with the opportunity of life. It's with sadness and with this same pragmatic resilience and by the grace of Providence that we his children, Debbie, Kevin, Cindy, Patricia; his grandchildren, Christopher, Daniel, Emily, Ian, Sarah, Jason, and Che'; his brother, Byrne and sisters, Sandy and Karen, must accept this last and final change in his life. Arrangements under the direction of Swan-Law Funeral Directors, Colorado Springs, CO.

Mattie, Albert
Albert Mattie - Chronicle News - August 26, 2011 - On November 8, 1925 Albert Mattie was the 9th of 10 children born to Giuseppe and Jennie Mattie at the family home in Segundo, Colo. Albert departed this life to enter the kingdom of God on August 24, 2011. Together with his sister, Lucy, his brother, Joe Jr. and his sister-in-law, Clara, many nieces and nephews and his many friends are left to cherish his memory. Preceding him in death were his parents, Giuseppe and Jenny, and his siblings; Mary, Rose, Arthur, Josie, Anne, Ernest, and Sam. The following brothers and sisters in law have also gone before him; Bob Tapia (Rose), Pino Carnelli (Josie), Howard Birchler (Anne), Frances Mattie (Sam), and Conrad Pelletier (Lucy). Except for his service to his country in World War II where, because of his size, he was initially a turret gunner on a bomber in the Army Air Corp and later, a supply clerk, Albert lived his entire life in Segundo. There he cultivated many lifelong and lasting friendships. He also etched his place in the memory and hearts of many through his community involvement, sense of humor, genuine concern for others, and his overall good nature. Since 2009 Albert has lived at Trinidad Nursing Home where his personality continued to shine through, endearing him to the staff and other residents. For more than 50 years Albert worked at the Segundo store, first for the Hadad Family, then for his dear friend, Nick Ringo Jr. Even after his retirement he was known to frequent the store on a regular basis to “supervise as necessary” and help make the sausage. A devout Catholic, Albert’s participation in and ownership for the St. Ignatius Church in Segundo as unparalleled. He is best remembered for his elaborate Christmas decorations, singing in the choir with his friend, Ercelia, and his general propensity to take charge of church business to “get things done.” Albert was an alumnus of Primero High School and a great supporter of anything black and orange. With some of his friends he formed the original “booster club” and actively supported the Bulldogs in many wild and creative ways. In later years he directed that same enthusiasm toward the Kennedy Community Center and the many programs it offered, especially ceramics. As a confirmed bachelor, his ability to dance the jitterbug and ice skate with his friends at the Primero ponds was surpassed only by his ability to cook pasta and bake. Albert was known to always try a new recipe and test it out on his family at the many holiday dinners he prepared for them. However, he is best remembered for his baking, especially traditional Italian holiday cookies and wedding cakes. In the final analysis, nothing better can be said in summation of Albert’s life; except that he was a faithful and dutiful servant of God, and a friend to everyone. Visitation will be Sunday from 2P.M.-6P.M. at the Comi Funeral Home Chapel. Funeral Services will be Monday August 29, 2011 with Rosary at 9:15Am at the Comi Funeral Home Chapel, followed by the Funeral Mass at 10 A.M. at Holy Trinity Church.

Mazzone, Albert
Albert Mazzone – Walsenburg World – March 30, 1899 – Albert, the two-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mazzone died on Friday of last week after a lingering and severe illness of several weeks. The little fellow was a sufferer of spinal meningitis and had received the best medical treatment and nursing but was called from a happy home, leaving fond hearts to mourn. The lifeless body was laid to rest in the Catholic Cemetery.

Mazzone, Caroline
Caroline Mazzone – Walsenburg World – May 15, 1913 – In Memoriam – Died at her home in our city, Friday, May 9, Caroline Mazzone, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mazzone, age 12 years. The sad news of Caroline’s sudden death cast a shadow over the whole community, for her short but happy life was spent among us, and every heart was touched with sympathy for the stricken ones, from whose fireside the light has fled. For 12 bright, sunny years not only had she been the joy and comfort of the home, now left desolate without her, but her sweet, childish presence brought a warmth of sunshine and happiness into the lives of all with whom she came in touch. We feel the emptiness of human words in times of better sorrow, yet He who “has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows will comfort and sustain.” During her brief school days in our city, Caroline’s sweet face and winsome ways won the hearts of both teachers and pupils. When they heard of her death her classmates with their teachers sent to the saddened home a token of loving remembrance an abundance of flowers – flowers, emblems of the pure and gentle spirit now safe with Him who “carries the lambs in His bosom.” Loving hands tenderly laid the little form to rest in the Catholic Cemetery Saturday morning. The funeral services were conducted by Father Sugare at the grave. May time bring its resignation to the devoted family and friends who are left to mourn; yet, while we mourn, we may rejoice that there is no cloud so dark that there is no light behind it; no sorrow so poignant that there is not a balm for the wound it inflicts, for above all comes a comforting thought that the gentle child was spared earth’s cares and sorrows, that her memory but forms another cord to draw her loved ones to the bright hope beyond. Poem: “For none return from those spirit shores, who cross with the boat man cold and pale. We hear the dip of the golden oars, and catch a gleam of the snowy sail. We only know that their barques no more, may sail with us o’er life’s stormy sea; yet, somewhere, I know, on the unseen shore they watch and beckon and wait for me.”

Mazzone, David
David Mazzone – Walsenburg World – December 13, 1900 – David Mazzone Passes Away – Died, at Walsenburg, Colorado, Tuesday, December 11, 1900, about noon, from hemorrhage, caused by an abscess in the throat, David Mazzone, son of Charles Mazzone, a prominent businessman of Walsenburg. Dave was only about 20 years of age at the time of his decease and had been sick but a few days, so that his death came as a sad surprise to the people of Walsenburg. The deceased was a bright, intelligent and pleasant mannered young man with prospects of a most brilliant future before him and numbered among his friends all of Walsenburg. Funeral services were conducted from the house and Catholic Church this afternoon at 2 o’clock, the Red Men of Wahatoya Tribe No. 46, Improved Order Red Men of which order he was a member, being in attendance.

Mc Kinsie, Sarah
Sarah McKinsie – Walsenburg World – June 21, 1900 – Fatally Burned – One of the saddest and most painful deaths that it has been our duty to record is that of Miss Sarah McKinsie of the Walsen Mines, which occurred Monday night. The little girl had kindled a fire on Monday for the purpose of helping prepare dinner, when the oil can that she was holding exploded and saturated her clothing with hot, burning oil. In an instant she was a mass of flames. Her cries brought her mother to her aid, who, after being severely burned about the arms, face, and body, succeeded in subduing the flames, but not till Sarah was burned deeply almost from head to foot. Medical aid was at once called for and Dr. Baird at once responded and did all that medical science and skill could do to allay the pain, but after about 12 hours of intense suffering the spirit left the body. The mother’s injuries are not serious though very severe. Sarah McKinsie was buried Wednesday afternoon from the Presbyterian Church here, where she has, since coming to this part of the county, been a faithful attendant. The Sunday school class of which she was a member, led by Miss Maude Wycoff, their teacher, and the Sabbath school, paid her a touching tribute as the body last appeared on earth. Rev. Hench officiated at the funeral services. The deceased was about 14 years old, pleasant, bright and good, and gave promise of years of noble womanhood.

McAliney, Francis R.
Francis R. McAliney – Pueblo Chieftain – October 20, 1919 – F. R. M’Aliney Dies At Home In This City – Popular Citizen Passes Away Following Lingering Illness – Francis R. McAliney, one of Colorado’s ablest lawyers and most eloquent orators, died at the family home in this city, at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon, at the age of 61 years. Mr. McAliney had been in failing health for more than a year, but the seriousness of his condition was not fully realized by the members of his family until a few days before the end. Strenuous work for several years on the government war boards, during which time he practically closed his law office, overtaxed him physically and hastened the end, in the opinion of his friends. Mr. McAliney was born at Alton, Illinois. Early in life he took up the study of law, graduating from Blackburn college. He practiced his profession in Chicago and St. Louis, and later in Kansas for a time. Thirty years ago he came to Pueblo, and five years later was married to Miss Mahar, who survives him. He is also survived by three daughters, Mrs. Katherine Loveland of Denver, and Misses Margaret and Anna. Frank R. McAliney was one of those whole-souled, big hearted men with whom it is considered a social asset to be acquainted. He was public-spirited and liberal, and always active in public and charitable matters. Among the lawyers of the state he was classed as a man of high legal ability, strong and upright character; he was known as one of the most eloquent speakers in the courts or on the rostrums of Colorado. Tho always active in matters political, he was not a seeker for office prefering to assist others in reaching their points of ambition. In state, county, district and national conventions he was often an imposing figure, and tho a loyal Democrat, he was liberal in his political and social views. Several times Mr. McAliney held the position of president of the Pueblo County Bar association, was at one time city attorney of Pueblo, and at the time of his death was serving his second term as Pueblo county’s legal adviser. During his practice of law in Pueblo, Mr. McAliney was for a time associated with such able legal men as J. J. McFeeley, A. W. Arrington, and the late Judge J. E. Rizer, prior to that gentleman’s occupancy of the district bench. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and at one time was grand knight of the local council of that order.

McChesney-Cleland, Helen M.
Helen Marie (Makloski) McChesney-Cleland - Ukiah Daily Journal - April 14, 2013 - Helen Marie (Makloski) McChesney-Cleland Age 92 went to be with the Lord April 6, 2013 at her home in Ukiah surrounded by her 5 children and numerous grandchildren. She had been a resident of Ukiah for 65 years. Helen was born April 26, 1920 in Trinidad, Colorado to Charles George and Elizabeth Suzanna Makloski. She grew up in Trinidad and attended and graduated Trinidad State Junior College (where she met her future husband) and Saint Luke's Nursing School in Denver, CO. On Oct 5, 1942, soon after taking her State Boards, Helen married Arthur Clay McChesney III, who was in his third year of Veterinary School at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. Shortly after beginning her nursing career she resigned to give birth to her first child Arthur Clay IV. The Army Veterinary Corp moved Arthur and Helen to Opelousas, LA where her second child Janice Allene was born. Early summer of 1947 the family packed their bags for Petaluma, CA where Arthur went into Veterinary practice with his brother John and her third child Richard Donald was born. On July 4, 1948 they made their final move to Ukiah calling it "a nice valley that grows pears and grapes", just adjacent to another small valley called "Potter Valley" that contained many dairies. It was in these two valleys and a radius of 80 miles that Arthur developed his veterinary practice working with both large and small animals. They built a small animal hospital adjacent to their home on six acres outside the city limits where 101 and Talmage Rd now intersect. There two more children arrived, Carol Sue and Linda Ann (who was born 11 years to the date of her oldest brother's birthday). Helen took care of the office and used her nursing education to help Arthur care for the animals. Because of the new freeway, in 1963 they built a new home and animal hospital on State Street where Helen lived the rest of her days. In 1970 Helen's husband sold his practice. The following 10 years they traveled doing "relief practice" for veterinarians who wanted to take a vacation. For many years Helen and Art traveled in their trailer with family and friends to Mexico, Baja and once around the US. Helen enjoyed a clean home, she would even be found raking and sweeping the beaches while vacationing in Mexico. Every year they would travel to Colorado to visit family and friends. In 1993, a few months after celebrating their Golden 50th anniversary, Arthur died. In 2002 Helen married William Hershel Cleland. Helen and Bill traveled and enjoyed reminiscing about their families, friends and life in Ukiah, until his death in 2010. Helen was most proud of raising 5 children, earning her Registered Nurse Degree, working alongside her husband Arthur building Ukiah Veterinary Hospital business, being an accomplished dog groomer for many years at the Vet hospital, teaching her children a good work ethic, earning her private pilot license in 1966 and being an AWANA Club leader at both Redwood Valley Community Church and First Baptist Church. She enjoyed traveling, cooking, attending Bible study groups, visiting with good friends, playing the organ and being a member of her organ club, gardening and making Christmas wreaths for the Ukiah Garden Club Christmas bizarres. Helen was a charter member and former president of the Ukiah Soroptimist Club where she used the slogan "A 'Nurse' who has gone to the dogs". Helen will always be remembered for her determination, independence and hardworking ethic. Daughter Linda remembers growing up when asked to do something she didn't want to do, she would tell her mother "Mom, I don't know how to do that", in hopes of not having to do the task. Helen's reply would always be "Well, it's about time you learn." never taking "no" for an answer. She was generous to her family, friends, church and others she felt were in need. She will be especially remembered for her love for her family. Always full of energy, never stopped until the job was done completely. She could outwork most that were half her age. She enjoyed friends of all ages and walks of life. Helen was a believer and follower of Jesus Christ and a member of First Baptist Church of Ukiah since 1948. God has been good to Helen and she is survived by 5 Children, 17 Grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great-great-grandchild, and 1 step-son.

McCosh, Rod
Rod McCosh – Walsenburg World – January 2, 1908 – Word was received here Monday afternoon of the death of Rod McCosh, at Mr. W. H. Freeland’s ranch on William’s Creek, on Monday, December 30, 1907. Mr. McCosh was 39 years, 10 months and 20 days old at the time of his death. Mr. McCosh had been a resident of Huerfano County for nearly 15 years, coming to Colorado on the 29th day of April, 1892. He was born in Seaport, Ontario, on February 10, 1868. On June 5, 1900 he was married to Miss Jennie Button. Mr. Freeland left Tuesday morning to be present at the funeral services. Walsenburg World – January 9, 1908 – Obituary – Rodrick McCosh was born at Seaforth, Province of Ontario, Canada, January 10, 1868. Died at his home near Gardner, Colorado, December 31, 1907. He leaves to mourn his departure, the bereaved wife residing in this county, and a mother and three sisters in Canada. About 15 years ago he came to Colorado and has since that time made his home among us. Seven years ago last June he was married to Miss Jennie Button of Seaforth, Canada. Though a sufferer for many years with the dread disease consumption, he was not one to complain, not even to the devoted and faithful wife who cared for him so tenderly until the end came. Only to a few of his intimate friends did he ever speak of his condition at all, and then not until the last year of his life, when he no doubt saw the shadows lengthening and growing darker. He fell asleep in the early-morning hours of December 31, with a loving and faithful wife beside him and a few friends. A kind and loving husband, a good citizen, a true friend; he will be missed in the home and in the community. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. F. M. Buhrman. His sermon, “Cast Thy Burden Upon the Lord and He Will Sustain Thee,” was full of comfort and sympathy for the bereaved one. We laid him away to rest from the little church at Gardner in the afternoon of the New Year’s Day of 1908, covered over with the beautiful flowers, the tribute of loving hearts. So he awaits the judgment day. A good man has gone from among us and may we who are left to feel the loss, so learn the lessons of life that when our summons shall, (as Comet will), be ready to meet it, and to feel the blessed assurance that we shall meet again the loved ones who have gone before. Mrs. T. J. Quillian.

Becoming a young widow in the early 1940's when her husband was a casualty of the war, she never remarried or had children. She always treated her niece, Libby (Wes) Bell and two nephews, James (Georgia) and Charles Hoffmann like her own children.

She was know as "the bear lady" for collecting hundreds of bears for the Pueblo Police Department's Hug-A-Bear Program, a project adopted by the Telephone Company Pioneers. She was very active in service to the YWCA Women's' Shelter, and was a Pueblo Zoo docent, something always very dear to her heart. She was a member of Pilot Club, DAR Arkansas Valley Chapter, Archeology Club, and was very active in Wesley United Methodist Church. She belonged to Order of Eastern Star Pueblo Chapter No. 7, Order of Amaranth, and was Mother Advisor for Rainbow Girls. When Doris belonged to a club, she didn't just "belong", she was totally supportive and active in the group, holding numerous offices and spending monumental hours of volunteer service to whatever the group was involved in at the time, whether it involved taking zoo animals to schools for programs or serving as an after school mentor, holding birthday parties monthly at nursing homes, or helping the less fortunate at the YWCA Women's' Shelter or serving food at the Community Soup Kitchen. She received many honors over the years including the Sunshine Award for Outstanding Work for the Benefit of the Pueblo Community in 1983, YWCA Rose Marie Martinez Award in 1993, YWCA Outstanding Woman of 1995, Senior Citizen of the Year for Pueblo County in 1999, DAR Outstanding Woman of 2003, YWCA Volunteer of the Year Award in 2004, and Colorado State Fair Silver Queen runner-up in 2012. She also loved to read, which was ultimately impossible due to developing macular degeneration. She was a worldwide traveler visiting all over Europe, Russia, Africa, Puerto Rico, Greece, Mexico, and numerous states and had many stories to share with others about her travels. For those who wish to honor Doris, contributions may be made to the Pueblo Zoo, YWCA Women's Shelter, or to a charity of your choice.

McCulley, Charles
Charles W. McCulley - Pueblo Chieftain - October 22, 2017 - Charles W. McCulley, 78, slipped away peacefully on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017. He was born July 18, 1939, in Pocatello, Idaho, to his proud parents, William Sonny McCully and Juanita and Clinton Young Morris, who preceded him in death; along with his devoted wife of 54 years, Petra Gonzalez de McCulley; mother-in-law, Juana Heredia Gonzalez; father-in-law, Juan Bautista Murillo; uncle, Spencer McCully; brothers-in-law, Efrain, Juan, Hector and Santander; sisters-in-law, Margarita, Cecelia, Mercedes and Gabriela; his right-hand, Uncle Richard Ortega; guard dogs, his beloved German Shepherds, Bullet and Nikki. Charles was the founder of the Angelus Chapel Mortuaries in Pueblo and Colorado Springs. Charles W. McCulley was literally born into the funeral business. From the time he was 8 years old, the curious native Idahoan traveled to Chicago in the summers to work with his uncle, who was the head embalmer at a funeral home. While a typical child might be apprehensive in such an environment, Charles embraced the experience, learning everything he could from his uncle. He did his first embalming at age 14. He loved the work despite his mother's desire of wanting him to be a doctor. He was an altar boy in his Catholic parish in Pocatello, Idaho, and the priests there encouraged him to study for the seminary, but Charles had other plans. He wanted to be an undertaker. Charles graduated from Pocatello High School in 1958, then elected to study mortuary science in San Francisco, Calif., where he graduated second in his class in 1959. After graduation, he obtained employment with funeral homes in the Bay Area before venturing south to Los Angeles, where he joined the staff of the prestigious Angelus Funeral Home. It was there that he garnered a wealth of experience, including assisting to prepare the body of legendary singer Nat King Cole. He was amazed to see the wealth of celebrities in attendance for Mr. Cole's funeral. Uncle Sam "came a calling" with a draft card. Charles joined the Army and further developed his skills as a mortician while also doing duty as a radio and television announcer. While stationed in Panama, he announced the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on the Southern Command Network radio and television stations. He served seven years, stationed at Fort Clayton in Panama Republica de Panama, ranked as E-6, staff sergeant. It was also while stationed in Panama that Charles met Petra Gonzalez de Murillo, whom he would marry and start a family. While stationed in Panama, a classmate from the San Francisco School of Mortuary Science, Puebloan T.G. McCarthy, contacted Charles to advise him about a funeral home that was available for sale in Pueblo, Colo. Alva Jones had operated the funeral home since 1921, and he and his wife, Helen, were planning on retiring. McCarthy felt that Charles would be the perfect man to serve the community. Jones' Mortuary served the Hispanic and African-American populations of Pueblo. During that time, other funeral homes in Pueblo wouldn't provide service to those two groups. Mr. Jones' funeral home had paved the way for the McCulleys. Charles and his beloved wife, Petra, purchased the Jones Funeral Home in May of 1968. They later changed the name to Angelus Chapel. During the time they started their funeral home business in Pueblo, the Civil Rights Movement was well on its way and unrest was about to erupt following the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Democratic presidential nominee Robert F. Kennedy. While not blatant, discrimination and prejudice were things the McCulleys encountered as they established the funeral home. They continued with the tradition of serving minority families not served by other mortuaries and did so with dignity and pride. Petra's first language was Spanish and she acted as a go-between for Charles and the Hispanic families. Innovation was nothing new to Charles, and he wasn't shy about making changes in the way funeral homes did business in Pueblo. One of the most notable achievements was the introduction of lavender-colored vehicles at the time when basic black or white vehicles were the Pueblo standard. In L.A., every funeral home had its own distinctive color. It turned out to be a wise business promotion and a good one at that: the eye-catching, soothing color proved to be both popular and conducive to the new business. It is nothing less than an understatement to call Charles a "visionary." Charles became heavily involved in several civic service organizations, such as the NAACP, where he served as president for two terms; the Pueblo Human Resources Commission (he was the first chairman); Mount Carmel Credit Union, where he served as president of the board of directors; the Disabled American Veterans; and the Masonic and Elks lodges. He also was recognized for recruiting minorities for the Colorado State Patrol and Rio Grande Railroad. In addition, the funeral home was the first minority-owned funeral home to secure a government contract to take care of the arrangements for military men and women of El Paso County. These were only a few of the recognitions Charles received; he was a man of humility, nonetheless he was grateful and honored. Like mentors before him, Charles continued to pass on his trade to his and Petra's children. Today, sons, Frank and Joseph, operate the Angelus Funeral Home in Colorado Springs. His daughter, Yanera, and son, Lil Joseph, operate the funeral home in Pueblo. Daughters Velkis, Juanita and Tamisha willingly help out and actively assist where and when needed. Charles had begun to groom the next generation, starting with his granddaughter, Zolanye. Angelus Chapel Mortuaries is truly a family-oriented business. The family also owns and operates the historic Zaragoza Hall. Charles and Petra sought to purchase the hall after being approached by the last of the members of the Zaragoza Society, because of their passion for Bessemer and preserving its history. The hall complements their funeral business and is made available to families to gather for repasts after funeral and memorial services, in addition to other family, civic and social gatherings. The McCulley family's knowledge and expertise helps them to give the families they serve exceptional service. They serve every family with great pride and are able to offer them a wide range of services to meet their needs. The quality of their service is what has allowed them to build strong relationships in the community, region, state and nation. When Charles and Petra moved to Pueblo, he promised her they would stay two to five years and then sell the funeral home and move to California. But once they met the people of Pueblo, drank the water and ate the green chile, they fell in love with Pueblo and made it the city that they would call home, raise their family and grow their personal and professional connections. In May of 2018, the family-owned business will be celebrating 50 years in business. The funeral home has been a mainstay in Pueblo for 94 years. Charles always down-played any personal accomplishments; instead, he credited his business success to a few people who assisted him along the way: his mother, Juanita Morris; his devoted wife, Petra; the late H.B. Markham, a Pocatello businessman and family friend who helped finance his business venture; and the late T.G. McCarthy for inviting him to come to Pueblo. Charles has stated on many occasions that "behind any successful man is a good woman." He always stated that his wife was his biggest supporter. Having lost his mother and his wife and handling their arrangements, he was well aware of the pain and traumatic stress that the death of a loved one can bring. This had enabled him to better serve those who turn to him in their time of need. Charles strived to follow a simple pledge his late mother wrote for the business, which is: "To serve every family as if they were our own to treat every woman as if she were our mother or sister, every man as if he were our father or brother." She also cautioned him that when he could no longer put people first,
