Salatera, Angelo
Angelo Salatera – Walsenburg World – October 16, 1903 – Tuesday at noon a fatal accident happened at the mines in Santa Clara by which Angelo Salatera lost his life. Salatera was working on the main entry. At noon he went into one of the rooms to eat his lunch when a shot from an adjoining room blew through the pillar and killed him. It appears that there is an angle in the main entry. A consequence of this was that the room adjoining the angle converged and it was found that the pillar was getting thin. The room on the lower side of the angle was therefore abandoned in order not to run into the other and remove all of the pillar. It was into this room that Salatera went to eat his dinner. He was a single man about 30 years of age. He was taking an active part in the Italian celebration on Sunday. The funeral services were held from the Catholic Church in Walsenburg Wednesday afternoon.

Salazar, Emma M.
Emma M. Salazar - Pueblo Chieftain - January 7, 2016 - Emma M. Salazar, April 23, 1922 - Jan. 5, 2016. Born in remote northern New Mexico to Jesus and Isidora Montoya in 1922, Emma Salazar was a member of America’s World War II greatest generation. Emma grew up on the family ranch named San Miguel with her parents and two brothers and nine sisters. At an early age, Emma went to schools in New Mexico and graduated as valedictorian from Cuba High School. Throughout her childhood, she learned the value of hard work alongside her family inside the home and out on the ranch. At the age of 19, she graduated from Capitol City Commercial College in Santa Fe. She began a chapter in public service as she moved to Washington, D.C., in 1941 as the United States was preparing for World War II. From 1941 to 1946, she work-ed in Washington, D.C., at what was then known as the War Department and helped relocate the War Department offices into the Pentagon. While in Washington, she also worked at Catholic University as a clerk/typist. After World War II, she returned to New Mexico and a few years later in 1948 she married Henry Salazar from Los Rincones, Colo. For the next 68 years, Emma made her home in her beloved Los Rincones, a ranch located in the San Luis Valley about 30 miles southeast of Alamosa, Colo. At Los Rincones, Emma raised her eight children in a home that did not have telephone or electricity until 1981. Throughout her years, she helped Henry on the ranch, including keeping the books for the ranch and farm operation, but her main devotion was to the life and success of her eight children Leandro, LeRoy, John, Ken, Elaine, Margaret, Elliott and June. She tended to their care and development and supported all of their pursuits, including education. All eight of her children became first-generation college graduates. Emma was also very active in the Catholic Church at St. Joseph’s Parish and was a member of the Neighbors in Christ. She was also a member of the Sociedad Protectiva Femenil. Emma’s legacy in life includes 17 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Her children and grandchildren have been educated and worked throughout Colorado, the United States and the world. All of them have returned home to live or frequently visit Los Rincones, a very special place where their ancestors have lived over 150 years. In her last days, she continued her role as the matriarch of the Salazar family, blessing everyone with her traditional Catholic “bendicion” to keep them safe as they left her home. Emma’s family knew her as Saint Emma because she exhibited the qualities of a saint through her Christ-like life. Emma was accepting of all, no matter their economic status, background, race, national origin or gender. She was non-judgmental and provided a safe haven and comfort zone to her family and strangers alike. Emma never had an unkind word to say about anyone and always had an optimistic view for her beloved family and for the world. Emma’s celebration of life will continue with a Penitente Rosary at St. Theresa’s Church in Manassa, Colo., this evening at 7:30 p.m., viewing from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and the living rosary at Our Lady of the Valley in La Jara, Colo., on Friday evening at 7:30 p.m., viewing 6:45 to 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, a funeral Mass will be held in Capulin at St. Joseph Parish at 1 p.m. Burial will follow at Los Cerritos Cemetery, with a reception and celebration of her life at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish Hall in Conejos, Colo. The family has established the Emma and Henry Salazar Memorial Scholarship Fund at Adams State University located in Alamosa, Colo. The memorial fund is meant to continue Emma’s and Henry’s belief in the power of education to help change the world for the better. Contributions can be made to: Emma and Henry Salazar Memorial Scholarship Fund, Adams State University Foundation, 208 Edgemont Blvd., Suite 2180, Alamosa, CO 81102. In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer contributions be made to the Adams State University Memorial Fund. Emma is survived by her five sisters: Epifania Sandoval, Elizaida Herrera, Sister Mary Agnes Montoya, Gloria Garcia, and Cipriana Baca and many nieces and nephews. Emma’s family of nearly 50 includes her children and their spouses: Leandro and Loretta; LeRoy and Michelle; John and Luz; Ken and Esperanza; Elaine and Edwin; Elliott and Pam; Margaret and Marvin; and June and Ted. Her grandchildren are: Alegria and Bryan; Alyssa; Rosa and Kelley; Gabe and Clorinda; Lucas; Jesus and Kaylee; Esteban; Miguel and Krystal; Melinda; Andrea and Paul; Elliot Jr.; Deanna and Craig; Michaela and Michael; Lucia; and Eric. Emma’s great-grandchildren are: Andrew; Nahlia and Nathaniel; Charlie; J.T. and Kaydence; Mireya; Jalissa; and Xavier; and Michael and Mason.

In 1987 Jim and Virginia relocated to Grand Junction, Colorado to a home on the Redlands, just west of where he grew up.

Sanchez, Alberto Nelson
Alberto Nelson Sanchez - Huerfano World Journal - October 26, 2017 - Al Hurricane leaves the building - Alberto Nelson Sanchez, better known by the name, Al Hurricane, died on Sunday, October 22. He was born in 1936 in Dixon, NM and became known as the ‘Godfather’ of New Mexico music. He performed, wrote songs, and recorded for more than 60 years a music that combined traditional Mexican folk music, rock and roll and country and western that New Mexican people identified with and adored. His music united the cultures of New Mexico into one style that appealed and spoke to ‘nuestra gente de Nuevo México’. His appeal reached into every corner of America that had Hispanic people or people who appreciated the Latino culture. He suffered with cancer for the last years and in 2016 he made a final farewell tour, performing locally with his son, Al Hurricane, Jr., in both Trinidad (sponsored by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) and also in Clayton, NM. His passing has brought an end to an era, but his children are carrying on the tradition. His father, a miner, introduced the young Alberto to the guitar and his mother gave him the nickname ‘Hurricane’ because he was clumsy as a young boy. He began his career in Albuquerque playing at weddings and in Old Town, but soon began to form his own band. His fame spread and soon he and his band were recording and growing as musicians. Al Hurricane performed with many other well known musicians, among them Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye and Chubby Checker. Many people in this area have seen him perform and met him in person. He performed all across the USA, internationally, and at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, and he earned awards from the New Mexico Hispanic Awards Association, the Governor’s Award for Music, the New Mexico Music Commission Foundation, and a lifetime achievement award from the Lensic Performing Arts Center. He died with his family nearby and a special public service is being planned to memorialize him for his family, friends and fans. Vaya con Dios, Al Hurricane.

Sanchez, Cisto
Cisto Sanchez – Walsenburg World – May 14, 1903 – Killing at St. Mary’s – Bartolo Leon, a well-known Mexican wood hauler, shot and killed Cisto Sanchez at St. Mary’s Tuesday afternoon. Leon shot Sanchez five times and an examination of the body shows five bullet wounds though two may have been made by the same bullet. Sanchez was shot squarely through the right eye, through the neck, through the abdomen, through the foot and there is a wound on each side of the hands. Leon, after the shooting, came across country through the pinons on foot, and gave himself up to the sheriff. He stated that he did not come by the road because he was afraid some of the dead man’s friends might take after him and avenge the death of their friend. Cisto Sanchez is an equally well-known Mexican who was always quarrelsome when he had been drinking. At the time just before the shooting he was under the influence of liquor and according to the story of Bartolo, was beating his wife and started after them with a knife, when the latter picked up his Winchester and fired five shots at him. An inquest was held on the body of Sanchez on Tuesday afternoon and the jury brought in a verdict that he came by his death by means of bullet wounds fired from a gun by Bartolo Leon with felonious intent. Bartolo Leon has been for many years well known in Walsenburg where he was in the habit of bringing in loads of pinon wood. He is a man about 45 years of age and in mental capacity is a natural, or in the language of his people is a “poco loco.” Walsenburg World – October 13, 1903 – District Court Doings – The court took a recess until Monday morning when the choosing of the jury in the case of the people versus Bartolo Leon was called. The history of the case is this. So far as is known generally Bartolo Leon, a well-known Mexican wood hauler who lived near St. Mary’s, shot and killed Cristo Sanchez on Tuesday, May 12, and then came to town across the country and gave himself up. Bartolo’s story is that Sanchez was under the influence of liquor and was beating his wife who is a sister of Leon; that he had made threats heretofore against both the wife and Leon and that at this time he was threatening them with a knife and that he killed him in self-defense. This, of course, is denied by the prosecution who will endeavor to show that the act was cold blooded murder, and they can doubtless bring forward some damaging circumstances. Leon shot Sanchez five times. Leon has always been considered by his people as a “poco loco.” The day was spent in presenting the case to the jury and at 8 o’clock Monday night the jury retired to the jury room and were out all night. At 9:30 this morning the jury reached a verdict of guilty of voluntary manslaughter. The judgment of the court was that he receive not less than five nor more than eight years in the penitentiary.

They then observed an unidentified object at the bottom of the cliff but they could not tell what it was due to darkness. The deputies then drove around to the bottom of the cliff, where they found the green Dodge Durango and Sanchez lying on the ground about 25 yards southwest of the vehicle.

Feb. 22, at 3p.m. in the Motherhouse Chapel followed by burial in the Motherhouse Cemetery in Ohio. Memorials can be made to the Sisters of Charity Retirement Fund, 5900 Delhi Road, Mount Saint Joseph, Ohio 45051. Local service date and time will be announced later by the Comi Funeral Home. Chronicle News - February 25, 2013 - Sister of Charity of Cincinnati De Paul Sandoval died Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013, at the age of 99 at Mother Margaret Hall, the nursing facility of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati. She was born Cecilia Sandoval to parents Carlos and Louisa (Maldonado) Sandoval in El Frisco, Colo., on May 27, 1913. Sister De Paul was a Sister of Charity for 79 years. Sister De Paul was born on a cattle ranch in the shadow of Fisher’s Peak near Trinidad, Colo. It was her love for the work of St. Vincent de Paul among God’s poor that led her to the Sisters of Charity. Sister De Paul was baptized at home by a Jesuit missionary who became a family friend; he was known as ‘Father Good.’ He confirmed her at age 3 and allowed her to receive her First Communion at age 8 along with two of her sisters. Father Good used the teacher’s chair for a confessional, hearing their confessions by the dim light of an oil lamp. Sister attended a rural, one-room school before going to St. Patrick’s boarding academy in Raton, N.M. Sister attended Trinidad Junior College for one year, but missed the ranch and returned there to help her father round up cattle; it was during the Depression and they were not able to hire workers for the ranch. Seeing the many neighborhood children attend rural school without a religion teacher, Sister De Paul rounded up all in the area and started a class, preparing them for First Holy Communion. It was then that she felt God’s call to help ‘round up souls.’ She knocked on the door of Holy Trinity Convent in Trinidad, Sister of Charity Mother Mary Regina Russell answered and the rest is history. Sister De Paul received her Bachelor of Science degree in 1946 from Catholic Teacher’s College, Albuquerque, N.M. Sister taught for 50 years, beginning at St. Leo, Detroit, Mich., in 1935. She ministered in education in Ohio, New Mexico, Colorado and Michigan, including her native Trinidad at Holy Trinity School. Sister referred to her most fulfilling days in education as being at St. Francis and San Felipe Schools, Albuquerque, N.M., where the children were among the very poorest. Retirement from the classroom in 1985 did not slow down Sister De Paul; it allowed her to pursue other ministries she had long desired to do in the Trinidad area. She and Sister Francis Beatrice Hennigan had visited prisoners ‘on the quiet,’ as she said, while teaching in Albuquerque; in Trinidad the jail was only five blocks. She began a ministry to the inmates at the Las Animas County Jail which she continued for 11 years. Each week she would visit as many as 20 prisoners, taking reading material, rosaries and candy bars. On Saturday she carried Communion to them. Those in lock-up received a personal visit in their cells while others gathered in a common room where they sat and listened to gospel stories, music or just talked. Sister brought the prisoners encouragement in her words of faith and hope. She was instrumental in the establishment of the Open Door Soup Kitchen in Trinidad. She also taught catechism in the mission parishes including Branson and Hoehne. She visited the homebound, and taught mentally handicapped adults at the Community College. Their goal was to earn their GED. She walked the streets of Trinidad, ministering to the troubled youth as well, always seeking to instill in them the desire to improve themselves and their surroundings. A verse she recited in high school remained her desire for her final assignment. “When I die and go to heaven, I don’t want harps, robes, haloes or other fancy things, just let me ride the starry ranges on a pinto horse with wings.” Sister Joan Groff said, “Sister De Paul was at every activity in Mother Margaret Hall and seemed to enjoy herself right up to the last week before she died. She was an inspiration just to watch. She loved art classes. I will miss her loving presence.” Sister Marty Dermody remembered Sister’s love of nature. “When De Paul’s niece Anita would visit she would bring Sister to the bird banding station. She told me her favorite bird was the Western Meadowlark. I was able to get her a little stuffed bird, her favorite, and she would play that bird’s song many times in her room. Rest in peace my friend.” Sister De Paul Sandoval is survived by many faithful nieces and nephews, Viola Navrot, Anita Jo (Dale) Hyatt, Carlos Sandoval, special niece Susie Sandoval, great-nieces and great-nephews, Carla Sandoval, Christine (Jeff Lee) Breaker, Cecilia (John) Altizer, Cynthia (Loren Essley) Sandoval, Carol Sandoval, Anita Navrot, Tessa (Chris) Ryan, Charlie Sandoval, Miguel Navrot, Pablo Navrot, great-great-nieces Celia Tamez, Savannah Star Lee, great-great-nephews, Nii Xavier Baddoo and Nii Oman Baddoo. She was preceded in death by sisters Teva, Ircilia, Cruzita, Sister Mary Carlotta, OFS, and Juanita Reed, and brothers Paul, Charlie, Pete and Benjamin. Local services will be held Wednesday February 27, 2013 with Funeral Mass at 10:00 AM at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Memorials may be made in Sister De Paul Sandoval’s name to the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati Retirement Fund, 5900 Delhi Rd., Mount St. Joseph, Ohio 45051 or the Fisher's Peak soup Kitchen in care of Holy Trinity Church, 235 N.

Sayre, Harry
Harry Sayre - Chronicle News - October 3, 2012 - Sayre, longtime local leader, dies at 86 - Harry Sayre, a former district judge, city mayor and council member, died Tuesday morning in Trinidad. He was 86. Bob Hamlin, Sayre’s son-in-law, said Sayre’s health had been deteriorating for some time, and his heart “finally gave out.” The lifetime resident of Las Animas County was well known for his involvement in local and state politics, his service to Trinidad's junior college, and a long and illustrious legal career. Even after he retired from the bench, he was still affectionately called "Judge" by many of his friends and associates. Sayre, who was born Sept. 2, 1926, was named Trinidad city attorney in 1970, and then was named district judge at the Las Animas County Courthouse in January 1979. Sayre earned his law degree at Denver University. His legal career included serving as Las Animas County judge from 1952-1960; city of Trinidad municipal judge, 1961-1965; assistant district attorney, Third Judicial District, 1966-1968 and 1972-1978; District Court judge, Third Judicial District, 1979-1987; senior Colorado state judge, 1987-1991; and member of the Colorado Juvenile Parole Board, 1999-2000. Sayre was elected to City Council in January 1992, and became mayor in 1996, serving until 2002. David Barrack, who was a member of City Council during that period, said Tuesday, "I can think of no one who worked harder for Trinidad than Harry did. He was tireless. He was a strong promoter and he accomplished many good things for this town." “Harry was a pillar in the community,” former Mayor John Rino said. The H.R. Sayre Senior Center in Trinidad was named after the former public official. Rino said Sayre was city attorney when he was first elected to council in the early 1970’s, and did a great job with the city and county as a district judge. “He really did a lot for this community,” he said. Councilman Joe Bonato said Sayre was a “good man,” and that he was saddened to learn of his death. Bonato called Sayre one of the “first pioneers” of Trinidad, and said he was part of the group of people who helped Trinidad become what it is today. "He was a fine man and a good friend," said former Trinidad City Manager Jim Soltis, who worked with Sayre at city hall. "The thing I remember was the way he always looked at what was going to be good for the community. He was fair and he cared deeply about the city. He truly wanted to make things better for Trinidad." Pete DeLuca, retired Trinidad State Junior College administrator, shared a similar admiration for Sayre's dedication to the community. "He had a genuine interest in this town, asset and its people. He was a great advocate of the college, which he knew was tremendous to the community." DeLuca said one of Sayre's major accomplishments was helping to establish the TSJC Educational Foundation in 1968. "He was one of five men who originally organized the foundation for the purpose of assisting and promoting the college — and he has served on its board of directors ever since." "I was going to be sworn in as county judge and Harry, who had been a family friend for many years, was going to do it,” said fellow lawyer and retired District Court Judge George Newnam, recalling Sayre. “The ceremony didn't take long and when it was over he looked at me and said 'Well, OK, now you're a judge. I have to go to Walsenburg now, so you're in charge.' And then he walked out." In addition to Sayre's extensive legal career, he had a keen interest in politics and was an active member of the Democratic Party. In 1950, at the young age of 25, he was elected to represent Las Animas County in the state House of Representatives during the 38th General Assembly. He served until 1952. Chronicle News - October 5, 2012 - Harry R. Sayre, 87, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012 at his home in Trinidad.

They were united in marriage for 62 years. He was preceded in death by his wife Johan, parents, brothers, Leslie and Charles, and sister, Joyce. Harry loved to be surrounded by his family and friends. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed spending time on the golf course or eating in the clubhouse. Harry had a love for Trinidad and public service that covered a wide variety of positions. He served a term in the House of Representatives as the youngest member elected at that time. He had a passion for the local politics and volunteered his time to many foundations and local organizations. Some of his positions included Mayor, Councilman, School Board Director, City Attorney, Assistant District Attorney, County Judge and he retired as a District Judge. He remained active with the Housing Authority Board of Directors, Mount Carmel Health, Wellness and Community Center Board and Trinidad Community Foundation Board until his death.

Betty completed two years at the University of New Mexico, before graduating with a BA in Music from Colorado College in 1949. Betty fondly remembered playing at sorority and fraternity parties to offset expenses through college, and she continued to be an entertainer for over 70 years. Betty left for New York to play classical piano, but she eventually moved to Denver where she met her future husband, Bob Schenck, while looking for a place to use as a recital hall. Betty and Bob were married at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Denver on December 17, 1951. Betty and Bob then moved to New Braunfels, Texas where all six Schenck children were born. However, Betty and Bob could not stay away from Colorado for long, and they moved the family back to Carbondale in 1968, where they made Missouri Heights their home. Betty spent a wonderful 25 years teaching music at Colorado Mountain College and during her time there she received her M.A. in Music from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1991. Betty was loved by students of all levels and influenced many with her music and stage productions in the Roaring Fork Valley. Fiddler on the Roof, The Mikado, Oklahoma, Cabaret, H.M.S. Pinafore, and The Sound of Music comprise a short list of many musicals performed under the guidance of Betty Lou at the Crystal Theater in Carbondale. Betty also loved Sundays at St. Barnabas Church where she combined worship with her love for music for many years, often playing the organ and always singing during the services. Betty will be remembered professionally as an excellent teacher, a talented performer, and a leading figure in the arts community, but she is best remembered for her loving smile, infectious laughter, and joy for life.

Austin Schindler was hiking with a group of friends Sunday afternoon near the St. Charles River and “natural waterslide area” just east of Lake Isabel when he fell from a rock cliff area. After climbing the rock cliff, the four other hikers discovered Schindler was missing. They told authorities they searched the area and found Schindler had fallen about 100 feet below into a rugged ravine. Two of the hikers attempted to assist Schindler while two others left the area to find help as cell phone service was not available in the area of the incident. Personnel from the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, Rye Fire Protection District and Pueblo County Coroner’s Office responded to the scene but due to the rugged terrain were unable to recover the body until Monday. Schindler was pronounced dead by officials from the coroner’s office. Schindler graduated in May from Pueblo West High School where he played lacrosse for the Cyclones and also had played hockey on the Pueblo County High School cooperative hockey team. Pueblo West Principal Martha Nogare said Schindler was the type of person who always had a smile on his face and a kind word for others. “He absolutely was one of the most respectful young men who had come through our doors,” she said. “He was a very kind person and his interactions with others was always positive. This is just a heartbreaker.” Pueblo County District 70 has made counselors available at Pueblo West High School for any students who might need assistance in dealing with Schindler’s death.

Schmidt, Mary Consolata (Sister)
Mary Consolata Schmidt - Chronicle News - February 19, 2003 - Sister of Charity of Cincinnati Mary Consolata Schmidt died February 12, 2003 in Mother Margaret Hall nursing home, Cincinnati, at the age of 87. Born Marie Helen Schmidt in Cincinnati, Ohio, on March 29, 1915, she was the only child of Henry and Anna Schmidt. She was a Sister of Charity for 69 years. Sister Mary Consolata was principal of Trinidad Catholic High School, Trinidad, Colorado, from 1970-1980. Previously Sister had been principal, assistant principal and teacher at Seton High School, Cincinnati, for 12 years. During those years enrollment at Seton swelled to 1,500, making Seton the largest all-girls secondary school in Ohio. So Sister found that being principal at the small, co-ed high school in Trinidad was an interesting change. Sister wrote about her experience in Trinidad in the early 1990s. She said: “There was almost sacredness about working as an administrator in a small struggling high school in a comparatively poor community which was willing to sacrifice to keep Catholic education alive. The ’70s were difficult years, but the dedicated group of Sisters and lay teachers made all the hard work worthwhile. Of course, I cannot pass over the added blessing of the charm and beauty of a delightful little mountain town.” Sister had previously also taught at Pueblo Catholic High School, Pueblo, Colo., from 1941-52. Sister returned to Seton in 1980 to teach and then serve in the business office. She remained at the school until she retired in 1994. “The Gospel says, ‘Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart.’ All those who were privileged to know or work with Sister Mary Consolata most assuredly know that she personified this message. She was indeed gentle and humble of heart. We all learned from her, and we are all richer because of her,” said Sister of Charity Brenda Busch, a former Seton High School principal. Virginia Wiltse had been a Seton student in the mid-1960s while Sister Mary Consolata was principal. But it was in the 1980s, when Wiltse worked on the school’s development campaign, that she really got to know Sister and discovered they had much in common. “We became very dear friends,” Wiltse said. “I will always treasure my relationship with her. I adored her, I simply adored her. We would go to lunch and talk for hours. We had so much fun. We shared stories of being Price Hill kids with German backgrounds. She was the best, most loyal friend, and she was one of my spiritual mothers. She would give me the most sound, practical advice. I’ve lost a precious friend, but God has another saint.” Sister Mary Consolata once wrote, “As a child I always wanted to become a teacher, and a teacher I became.” Sister spent three years teaching elementary grades in Springfield and Cincinnati, Ohio, in the 1930s and 1940s, followed by 57 years in high schools in Cincinnati and Lima, Ohio; and Trinidad and Pueblo, Colo. During an interview in 1995 Sister said that the greatest reward of her profession was the number of lasting friendships she formed with both teachers and students. Sister Mary Consolata earned a bachelor’s in Latin from the College of Mount St. Joseph, Cincinnati, Ohio, and a master’s in Latin from St. Louis University, St. Louis, Mo. As a teacher and school administrator Sister Mary Consolata held membership in the National Catholic Education Association, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, The North Central Education Association, and the National Forensic League. Visitation for Sister Mary Consolata Schmidt will be Monday, Feb. 17, 2-3:30 p.m., in the Heritage Room at the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse, Cincinnati, Ohio. Mass of Christian burial will be at 3:30 p.m. in the Immaculate Conception Chapel at the Motherhouse, followed by the burial in the Motherhouse cemetery. Memorials can be made in Sister Mary Consolata Schmidt’s name to Seton High School, 3901 Glenway Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45205 or to the Sisters of Charity Retirement Fund, 5900 Delhi Road, Mount St. Joseph, Ohio 45051.

Schmidt, Warren
Warren Schmidt - Canon City Daily Record - April 29, 2015 - Warren George Emil Schmidt was born on Thursday, March 10, 1921 to Charles John Schmidt and Naomi Gustina Baker Schmidt in their home on the family ranch on Muddy Creek at Bradford, Huerfano County, Colorado. Warren was delivered by his dad and his grandmother, Bertha Meyer Schmidt and on April 23, 2015 he passed away at the age of 94. Warren was named for his maternal grandfather, George Washington Baker, whose family emigrated from England to Boston, Massachusetts on April 17, 1635, and for his paternal grandfather, Emil Schmitt, born in Potzbach, Kaiserslautern, Germany, and immigrated in October 1880 to Nebraska and arrived in Custer County by 1885. Warren was dedicated to preserving his family history. He was recognized four times by the State of Colorado as a direct descendant of territorial pioneers. Warren's first school, located three miles from the ranch, was the North Bradford School where he traveled to school on horseback or with a buggy. Later he attended school in Gardner, Colorado. Except for his military service, Warren lived and worked on the Muddy Ranch until June of 1950, when he moved his family to the Chandler Ranch, west of Florence. Warren Schmidt was drafted into the United States Army Air Force from the city of Walsenburg, Colorado. On October 22, 1942, he was inducted at Ft. Logan, Colorado. In November 1942, his basic training was at St. Petersburg, Florida and December of 1942, Warren went to Fitzsimmons Army Hospital at Denver, Colorado for medical training. He worked as a medic. On February 20, 1946, he was classified in Class I-C and discharged at the rank of Sergeant. Warren met his future wife, Wilma Taylor, at a U.S.O. dance shortly before Christmas in 1944 in Salina, Kansas. They were both on dates with other people. Warren's first thought when he met her was "Wow! I like that little redhead." Wilma's first thoughts were, "He was a good looker and a smooth dancer." Warren and Wilma were married July 13, 1945 in Salina, Kansas. This July, they would have celebrated 70 years of marriage. In addition to working the Chandler ranch, Warren started working for the Union Ditch and Water Company from March 1952 until March 1988. To this day, many community members considered him an expert on local water issues. Warren was an excellent steward of the land and his animals. His passion for hunting began before the time when a license was required for hunting and he continued hunting until he was in his late 60s. He was always a cowboy at heart. His horses, Dan, Maude, Roanie, Butterfly, and Fairy were an important part of his daily life. Butterfly was his grandmother, Hulda Baker's, horse. Butterfly was the horse he taught all his children to ride on. For Warren many a day was spent on the back of his horse doing cattle checks, mending fences, and the annual spring and fall round-up. The Schmidt family headstone at Rosita has his three favorite horses, Dan, Maude and Roanie, engraved. In 1969, they sold the ranch on Chandler Road and moved in 1970 into Florence, Colorado. Warren was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows from the 1970s to 1990s. He held all chairs in the Florence Chapter and, as well as, in the District. He is a lifetime member of the American Legion. At the American Legion Post #25, he held all chairs and was the District Commander. He was a member of the Society of Forty Men and Eight Horses (Forty and Eight) He volunteered many years for the annual Gardner Round-Up Dinner at the Gardner Church and for the Ground-Hog Dinner at the old Methodist Church in Florence. He lived every day with honesty, courage, hard-work, and compassion. He was always there to help a neighbor or friend. As a husband, father, brother, uncle, grandparent, friend and neighbor, Warren had a profound effect on many. Warren, we will always love you and never forget how incredible you were as father, grandfather, provider, friend, husband and a wonderful man to all whose lives he touched. He will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Wilma; two sons, Larry (Cheryl) of Penrose and Dwaine (Don) of Denver; two daughters, Betty (Marty) of Divide and Marilyn (Glen) Golden of Walsenburg. Also surviving are four grandchildren, Cindi Selvage, Justin Schmidt, Kevin Anselmo and Jason Golden; five great grandchildren, Jeremy, Colton and Dylan Miller, Tucker Lee Schmidt and Montana Anselmo; one great-great-grandchild, Kaiden Miller; and many loving cousins, nephews and nieces.

Schober, Vera Mae
Vera Mae Schober - Pueblo Chieftain - December 8, 2016 - Vera Mae Schober, 91, born Aug. 7, 1925, peacefully passed Dec. 2, 2016, with family beside her. No viewing, no services. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Montgomery & Steward - December 8, 2016 - "Grammie," Vivi, Vera Mae Schober was an incredible woman. She was a woman who truly loved her family and stood by them no matter what the circumstances were. She always offered sage advice and always told you exactly what she thought, like it or not. A few things that truly demonstrate her personality and ways of thinking were to: say the alphabet backwards just as fast as any of us could say it the correct way, tell you to always love each other because truly that is all you will ever have, never discuss politics or religion and always have good manners. My grandmother loved Cripple Creek, Bingo, Neil Diamond, Gone with the Wind, pizza, Coors beer and the damn cigarettes that killed her, which she would always say after smoking "never smoke it's a nasty habit." She worked for the CFI Steel Mill for over 20 years doing various job's from rail mill, yard maintenance and janitorial, to secretarial, and accounts payable. She enjoyed all her jobs & co-workers for the many years she was there, she also believed hard work always paid off. Vera never called in sick to work, never complained about anything. In fact, she never complained, not once, up until the day she died. Vera was a "firecracker," she was never too pooped to pop, she was an amazing cook and the best Grammie anyone could have. She gave absolutely everything she could to everyone she knew. She always remembered everybody's birthday, wanted to know what everyone was having for dinner, how they were doing and what their weather was like. One thing that I hope will continue to happen in memory of her life, is that we will continue to keep her spirit and catch phrases alive within each of us. Here's to you Grammie! May you Rest In Peace, may you have everything that you've ever dreamed of and may you be with your family in heaven watching over all of us!

Pueblo Chieftain - May 10, 2016 - Noted surgeon, veteran dies at 83 - A noted orthopedic surgeon and retired Air Force colonel died last week in Pueblo. Dr. R.J. Black Schultz, an Oklahoma native, was 83. Affectionately known as “Doc,” Schultz served in the Air Force from 1958 to 1995. During that time he was commander of an Air Force surgical team in the Vietnam delta and for that service, was awarded the Bronze Star and Air Medal. In that Southeast Asia country, Schultz logged thousands of hours of flight time, including a good portion in combat zones. A onetime chief of orthopedic surgery at the Air Force Academy, Schultz was, in 1971, the team physician for the Falcon football squad during its Sugar Bowl appearance. That same year, Schultz became associated with an orthopedic clinic at 100 E. Routt Ave. in Pueblo, beginning a respected career that lasted until 1997. Long involved in civic and community endeavors, Schultz was part of a group of veterans who, in 1989, formed the Pueblo Historical Aviation Society. The society contracted with the city to restore and maintain a fleet of historic military aircraft, eventually establishing the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum, which continues to attract patrons from around the world. And as far as Schultz was concerned, any type of flight merited his attention. “For 10 years he helped me with the Fly Pueblo Paper Airplane Contest,” said Chieftain Staffer Chris Woodka. “He was always very helpful and interested in it, making sure all the kids who participated got something from the museum.” Schultz also was active in the Air Force Association, American Legion Post 2, Eagles, VFW and other veterans’ groups, Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce, Pueblo Economic Development Corporation, Investors Club and Boy Scouts. Central Christian Church, where Schultz worshipped for 45 years, hosted his services, with Pastor Dan Weaver reading a eulogy written by Schultz himself.

She was born October 22, 1917, in Raton, New Mexico to Italian immigrants Joe and Marcalina Cunico. The youngest of eight children, Jennie spent her childhood helping her family on their ranch, milking cows, and daily survival in the 1920’s. She graduated from Kiowa High School and shortly thereafter was asked to play basketball for the American Redheads, a semi-pro team in that day. Her strict parents would not let her however, and she moved on to other endeavors, though she would always wonder if she could have made it playing basketball. Jennie married Allen Scott in February of 1945. They had a blended family. Jennie had a two year old son from a former marriage, (Skipper); Allen a two year old son, (Ronnie). This might have been an obstacle for most couples but not so with these two. The boys being the same age grew up as brothers. Later they had a daughter (Tootie) and the family was complete. Jennie worked various jobs while raising their family including punching numbers at the phone company, clerking at the City Market, and working at Rigoni’s Bar. She was happiest when she was around people. She was an avid sports fan, rarely missing a game played by her children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren. She claimed most of the kids in Roy as her own. She was known lovingly as Mimi Scott and her door was always open to friends and visitors. After the death of her husband, Allen, in 1990, she worked at the Roy Elementary School helping to take care of the little ones and answer phones. Mimi Scott remained independent and active into her 90’s and could be seen driving her buddies around the community or visiting on the bench in front of the local store. She was a loving wife and mother and her family always came first. Her quick wit and smile was infectious and was with her throughout her lifetime. She was loved by all who knew her and will be missed greatly. Jennie was preceded in death by her parents, seven siblings, her husband Allen, and her son Ronnie Scott. She is survived by son, Louis McEwen of Sherman, Illinois and daughter Tootie Clavel of Roy; nine grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren, and many wonderful friends. In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will be held Saturday, September 24, 2016 at the Harding County Community Building in Roy at 11:00 A.M.

Scott, William
William Scott – Walsenburg World – October 12, 1916 – Trinidad Youth Slain – Murdered by Cattle Rustlers Near Scott Ranch – William Scott Shot a Short Distance From Spot Where Father Was Killed Over a Year Ago – Trinidad – A short distance from the spot where his father, James Scott, was shot and killed a year and a half ago, William Scott, 19, was murdered by cattle rustlers near the Scott Ranch, 14 miles northwest of Trinidad. Scott and a younger brother set out from the house late in the day and came across two men skinning the carcass of a calf. The men fled, and William Scott remained with the carcass while his younger brother returned to the house for horses with which to overtake the fugitives. When he returned he found his brother dead with a bullet wound through the heart. The carcass had disappeared. Posses are scouring Las Animas County in search of the two men. The younger boy described the men as undersized and of foreign appearance, presumably either Mexican or Italian. James Scott, a justice of the peace in this district, and the father of the murdered boy, met his death while driving down a road near his ranch in April, 1915. Six weeks later Frank Fucurino was found guilty of the murder and sentenced to a life term in the penitentiary. Police authorities do not believe the two murderers have any connection.

Seamans, Robert
Robert Seamans - Chronicle News - May 27, 2011 - Rockies fan dies after fall at park - A 27-year-old man who fell about 20 feet and struck his head on concrete during the seventh inning of a Colorado Rockies game has been declared dead, authorities said Thursday. Witnesses told police that the man had been trying to slide down a staircase railing at Coors Field and lost his balance during Tuesday afternoon's game between the Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks, Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. The Denver coroner's office identified the man Thursday as Robert Seamans of Pueblo. The father of Seamans' girlfriend, Larry Elliott, told The Denver Post that Seamans was declared brain dead Wednesday, about 12 hours after the incident. A transplant team was called in to harvest his organs, Elliott said. "You definitely don't want somebody's experience at the ballpark to be something like that," Rockies first baseman Jason Giambi said before heading to batting practice before Thursday's game against Arizona. "It's supposed to be uplifting and an enjoyment for the fans. That's a terrible thing to hear." Seamans worked as a waiter at Cactus Flower Mexican Restaurant in Pueblo for at least the past four years, restaurant general manager Kim Harding said. She described Seamans as playful and a favorite of customers who often asked for him by name. Seamans had plans to attend the April 3 game between the Rockies and Diamondbacks, but that game was postponed because of rain. Harding said Seamans was very excited about attending Tuesday's makeup game, the first of a doubleheader. "He was like a kid on Christmas," she said. "I'm not sure if this was his first baseball game." The Rockies said in a statement Thursday that they were deeply saddened to learn of Seamans' death.

It was the last act in a stirring drama that occupied the stage of human action for more than three score years and ten. He was born in Rettberg, Germany, February 1, 1834, and lived there until he arrived at manhood. Attracted, in common with many of his countrymen, by the marvelous development of the American republic and the wider opportunities it afforded, he came to the United States in November, 1855. and settled in Aurora, Illinois. Here he was married January 30, 1858, to Anna Kirchoff of his native town, whom he had known from infancy. In two months thereafter, with his native bride he removed to Eastern Kansas, and made his home in Garnett, the county seat of Anderson County, where he remained until two years ago, when he came to Colorado and settled on his ranch north of Pueblo. Mr. Setter was a man of more than ordinary intelligence and ability. He was a great reader and student, and an unusually close observer of public events. Devoted to the very highest ideals of citizenship, and living amidst the stormy and tempestuous scenes of the border struggles, his warmest sympathies were cast on the anti-slavery side, and with the Union; and when the war came, he entered the struggle and was found gallantly fighting for the old flag. On leaving the service he returned to his Garnett home and settled down for the peaceful struggles of industrial life. His sterling honesty and integrity were universally recognized by his neighbors and he took an active part in the local affairs of his neighborhood, serving as mayor of the city of Garnett. His life was an active and useful one. He was a good citizen, devoted husband and loving father; and his memory will long he cherished by those who knew him best. He leaves surviving him his widow and three grown children, Henry, Water Superintendent of the Waterworks at Walsenburg; Herman, who lives on the home ranch with his widowed mother; and Mrs. A White of Pueblo.

Sharp, Donald Eaman
Donald Eaman Sharp - Colorado Community Newspapers - March 22, 2013 - Donald Eaman Sharp 06/11/1951 – 02/02/2013His life began 61 years ago in Dallas, Texas. His Canadian mother, Mary Elizabeth Shaver Eaman (Molly) and New Yorker father, Howard Macdonald Sharp, moved to Texas in search of a job. Day two in Dallas landed his father a job at Tempco. Day three landed his mother with their first born son. They lived in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for the next 9 years, joined by two brothers and a sister. In 1960 the family moved to Littleton, Colorado where Don attended school graduating from Arapahoe High School in 1969, followed with two years at Arapahoe Community College where he studied Art and Biology. An Eagle Scout, who attained God and Country status and Order of the Arrow, Don always enjoyed being outside, hunting rattlesnakes as a teenager and when older searching for mushrooms or spelunking in caves around the country and Mexico. Don enjoyed scuba diving when he was younger, was an expert skier, and often owned horses, pigs, chickens or ducks. He was most passionate though, about flying the Cessna Cardinal he co-owned with his brother. Don's demeanor was generally that of a happy camper and a loyal, courteous and cheerful boy scout. Don spent most of his working life in the families metal stamping and spinning factory, where he was an accomplished metal spinner. In the last 10 years, Don's primary focus was on building his home outside of Walsenburg, where views of the Spanish Peaks, and horses in the pasture hinted at the peace he had always hoped for. Construction on the house lingers to this day due to the insidious servitude alcoholism demands. The shadows of his dream were outlined by the slowly evolving house against the crumbling tack rooms and paddock. The happy camper, having nearly died at least 5 times since the age of 14, has closed his eyes in peace since the battle is finally over. Don Sharp's lifelong battle with alcoholism, ended when he suffered a fatal heart attack while attempting to get his pickup truck out of the ditch after a recent snow storm. Rest in Peace brother. Don was preceded in death by his mother in 2010 and his father in 2011. He leaves behind his two beloved dogs, Stitch and Bolo, who stood by his side from the moment of death until 3 or 4 days later when his body was discovered by a farmer on his way to feed the cows. His brother Ken lives in Pueblo, sister Janet Pritchett lives in Denver and Ridgway, and youngest brother Walter lives in Littleton.

He served in the US Army from 1943 to 1947 and then in the Army Reserve where he retired as a Colonel in 1981. He married Canadian Mary Elizabeth Eaman (Molly) in 1948, and they lived together in Michigan and Texas before moving to Centennial in 1960. Howard and Molly had four children. In the 1960's Howard and a neighbor, Al Woodson, bought Marshall Manufacturing Company, a small metal spinning and stamping factory founded in Denver in 1908. Howard managed the business side of operations until retiring in 1990. In the late 1960's Marshall Mfg. bought a Wang 2400 computer and Howard taught himself the computer programming language and wrote programs for all accounting functions. The computer had 24 K of memory, used 8" floppy disks and cost $20,000. It was another decade before personal computers were available. All his children learned about business while working at Marshall. His sons Don and Ken took over the business when he retired. Ken runs Colorado Spinning Works today in Pueblo, Colorado. His wife of 62 years died unexpectedly last year. He lived at home until nursing care was required. He died peacefully in his sleep. Although Howard had lived with the challenges of Alzheimer's for the past 6 years, a previously unseen humorous side of him came out and he knew all family members and was able to perform most daily functions. Howard is survived by four children: Donald of Walsenburg, Ken of Pueblo, Janet Pritchett of Ridgway and Denver, and Walter of Centennial. He also is survived by four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Howard's brother Edward preceded him in death.

Brian Anthony Shaw - Chronicle News - September 28, 2017 - Trinidad man killed in accident near Durango - Brian Anthony Shaw, a 23-year-old Trinidad man was ejected from a man lift at a construction site in Bayfield, near Durango last week and died Saturday. The Durango Herald said Tuesday that a fire chief confirmed that Shaw, an employee of Centennial-based SEMA Construction Inc., was trying to fix a man lift that had a wheel go off the side of a dirt road. Reports of the incident indicate Shaw had locked himself into the basket before the man lift went off the road. However, in the process of fixing the lift, Shaw forgot to lock himself into the basket that is at the top of the lift, and he was ejected when the lift went further off the road. He fell about 40 feet and landed on a survey stick that punctured his abdomen, investigators said. Shaw was the only person operating the lift. According to the Durango Herald, Shaw was working with a construction crew contracted by the city of Bayfield to rebuild the Bayfield Parkway over the Los Pinos River. Shaw was flown to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Lakewood in stable condition. On Saturday the man died, according to his family. The Durango Herald reported Shaw died of a staph infection, which they called a common complication with Shaw’s type of injury. A member of the rescue team that treated Shaw at the scene of the accident told the Durango Herald, “When it’s an open wound, it immediately introduces bacteria,” he said. “It can get out of hand and life-threatening pretty quickly ... But it surprises me. I didn’t think the injury was fatal.” The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the federal agency that sets and enforces workplace safety measures, confirmed the agency is investigating the incident. Whitney Shaw, B.J. Shaw’s stepmother, said he studied auto-diesel mechanic school at WyoTech, a technical college in Wyoming. Chronicle News - October 6, 2017 - Brian " B.J." Shaw.

Sheelan, Vasil
Vasil Sheelan – Walsenburg World – January 5, 1911 – Dust Explodes, Six Men Are Burned to Death – As a result of a coal-dust explosion Tuesday morning at the Portland Cement Works, Portland, Colorado, six men are dead and three are severely burned. Of the dead men there are five Italians and one Austrian. Three are married and three single. The explosion is one of the most peculiar in Colorado’s history. The cement company operates a kiln room in connection with the manufacture of cement. In this room there is a coal pulverizer which pulverizes the coal into dust to be used in the kiln as you will. During the course of pulverizing the coal dust settles over the room and building in much the same manner as it does in a coal mine. Twice a month this dust is swept out and burned. Tuesday morning the 10 men were sent into the room to sweep down the dust. The custom has been to see that all fires in this room are extinguished before the sweeping begins. The supposition was, and the company still maintains, that there was no fire anyplace when the men began to clean the room. Nevertheless, after clouds of dust had been raised, and the sweeping was going on, a terrific explosion occurred. It was much like the explosion at the Pemberton Flour Mill, only on a smaller scale. One of the men was instantly killed, the others ran outdoors, their clothing on fire, and the dust that had settled in their clothing while they were sweeping only added to the heat of the flames. They ran from the building screaming in their agony. Other employees rushed after them, but it was almost impossible to catch them until they sank from exhaustion and burns. One died while being carried to the hospital, four more are not expected to live through the night, another may not recover, while one other man is only slightly injured. He managed to scramble into a moving elevator going to a lower floor and on reaching the top jumped into a bin of fine screen coal below without injury. Two more deaths were added to the list as a result of the dust explosion at the Portland Cement Works Wednesday morning, making eight in all. John Avila, a Mexican, and Vasil Sheelan, a Russian, were additional victims.

Shew’s death on July 12, 1972, Lena took up a full-time position as a cook at Trinidad School District Number 1.

Chronicle News - December 6, 2006 - A piece of history lost with Lena Shew’s passing - With the passing of Trinidad resident Lena Shew, the community lost yet another piece of its history. Shew and others of the Depression era were living testaments to many common beliefs such as “waste not, want not,” respectful habits such as visiting the sick, always paying your respects by attending funerals, and always exercising your right to vote. Working hard for a living was something they especially took pride in, and accepting “welfare” or other hand-outs unheard of. Lena was born during the Depression and grew up during the recession that followed. She experienced the woes of living in coal camps and other hard times that taught one the value of a nickel. She was raised with high values, with nothing being more important than family, which is how she raised her own six children. She was left with the raising of those children on her own, losing her husband at a young age. To do that, she took on several jobs, dedicated to carrying out her duties to the very best of her ability. Her sons and daughters attest to that by saying that she never took days off, never took her sick days and was never late. One of those jobs was as a newspaper carrier for The Chronicle-News, retiring from there after fifty years of service. The experience began in the mid-50s as a family job. Each morning she would pick up the papers for her route and faithfully deliver papers to the people of Trinidad. “Two generations of Shew children, grandkids and their friends sat in the back seat of old clunker cars, hands dirty with newsprint from folding papers, brows knit in concentration,” said daughter Barbara. Shew’s route took her past old-time corner grocery stores such as Veltri’s or Gagliardi’s and later by JR’s for soda and candy for her little helpers. “It was remarked more than once over the years that there was no way she could ever have turned a profit with all the money she spent on refreshments for the kids,” her children laughed. “Money was not what it was all about,” Barbara continued. “For mom, it was family.” It was a family endeavor, from start to finish. “One of those activities people don’t think about at the time, but when it’s gone, everyone realizes it was the nails that held the family together.” Pick up the papers, fold the papers, the routine went on in a continuous cycle. A constant divvying up of the work, so that no one got more than their fair share. Through the long afternoons of summer, the snows of winter and the winds of spring, the deliveries went on and on, the old Chevy Nova or Ford Fairlane clanking up and down Baca Street, Topeka and Willow. One of her boys remembers how anxious they were at the young age of 12 or so, wanting to drive the cars. “At first it was really exciting, like it is with all youngsters who finally get behind the wheel, but before long, we were part of the job,” chuckled son Bob. Lena had a hard time asking for overdue subscription payments, and when someone passed on, owing for their paper, she would dig into her own pocket on more than one occasion, and paid the bill herself. In addition, she would pick up a stack of papers with the obituary in it and take it to the family, at no charge. The other two jobs she had were at Dr. Frank Visconti’s office and the other with the Trinidad School District where she cooked. After dedicating nearly 40 years to the school, at 83 years old, she continued to place her name on the substitute list, “just in case she was needed.” “She loved the kids,” said Barbara. “She knew which kids she should throw an extra roll at or give an extra milk; but they were all very special to her.” She continued with her jobs, supporting her family the best she could, and accomplished what she set out to do—keep her family together. Her children recount times when their mother taught them not to be wasteful, moving clumps of grass from the area near the college where the construction of the then new cafeteria would be taking place; clump by clump, to place in the old home on Nevada she had purchased. “It’s a really big yard,” explained Barbara, “and each blade of grass came from the boys cutting and carrying each piece to the yard and replanting it.” “Mom wasted nothing,” said Bob. Other memories centered around other values she taught her children. “She never missed our sporting events,” the sons added. “No matter what else was going on, her work was done and she was at our games.” It was said that she also loved feeding people. The children were not allowed to spend the night at their friends’ homes, but everyone one of them was welcomed at hers, perhaps a way of keeping track of her children at all times. “No matter what little food there was in the house, she seemed to be able to always prepare enough for whoever else showed up, like the loaves and fishes story in the Bible.” Her children have come to the conclusion that a lot of socializing went on during her working hours, saying she loved to visit with people, perhaps one of the reasons she kept working for so long.

She was the mother of 12 children, six having died in infancy. She joined the Christian church at 15 years of age. She was one of the oldest and best loved members of that church at Clinton and for the last 15 or 20 years has devoted the greater part of her time to church work. Her death was sudden and unexpected, while she left no last word, she left a life beautiful for consecration and self-denial. Hers was a grand example of Christian perfection. Everyone has some kind of remembrance of her. She was always ready to visit the sick, and did. We shall miss her, her kindly deeds, loving words and sweet Christian face we shall see no more on earth. And the whole community weeps her loss, yet as memory recalls the happy past, and dwells upon the many charms of character, there embodied, will each one rejoice that she was so well fitted to enter the brighter home beyond, and heaven will seem all the nearer, and its scenes all dearer said she has entered there. We are glad that such consolation comes to the weeping ones in the hour of their deepest grief. More comforting than the sympathy which friendship so readily bestows. She has gone on before. May God only strengthen the faith of the bereaved and enable them to press on.

His joy was baseball, and he was a diehard St. Louis Cardinals fan. His most memorable game was the 1967 game, where Bob Gibson broke his leg; although going to Cardinals and Rockies games with his son, daughter and wife was just as memorable.

Sillers, Daniel J. (Ph.D.)
Daniel J. Sillers, Ph.D. - Pueblo Chieftain - December 24, 2014 - Daniel J. Sillers, Ph.D. Recognized worldwide as, “the man in the kilt,” Dan Sillers, 87, died on Dec. 14, 2014, completing a life well-lived and thoroughly decorated with friends and accomplishments. Born in the farming community of Calvin, N.D., on Nov. 30, 1927, Dr. Sillers achieved a B.S. at Minot State Teachers College, an M.A. in counseling from the University of North Dakota and a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Denver. He served as the director of counseling at the American Institute of Research in Washington, D.C., and manager of professional development for the Martin-Marietta Corp. in Baltimore, Md., before becoming the sixth president of Jamestown College (now Jamestown University) in Jamestown, N.D. He was regarded as one of the most innovative educators in the country, known for his strong advocacy of the Library-College concept, which embodied Dr. Sillers’ goal to create students whose world view “was influenced by reason but not swayed by prejudice.” While president of Jamestown College, he broadened the diversity of the student body and increased the proportion of faculty holding doctoral degrees. After leaving Jamestown, Dr. Sillers continued to teach, moving to Washington, D.C., where he became professor of psychology at the University of the District of Columbia. Taking early retirement from teaching, Dr. Sillers blended his drive to nurture and care for others with his creative entrepreneurial skills when he founded Argus Home Care, Pueblo, Colo., then founded Argus of Colorado Home Health, Denver, which became one of the largest home health care organizations in the state. Dan Sillers was a man of honor who enjoyed hard work as much as good times with others. He was always interested in the welfare of others, offering his insight, humor and energy as a teacher, principal, dean of students, consultant, even serving as supply pastor for several smaller churches in Colorado and North Dakota. He leaves a legacy of generosity, positive thinking and innovation, as well as a deep love of family and friends. Dan is survived by his wife, Iva Lou Bailey; two daughters and their spouses: Marsha (Doug) Okland of Missoula, Mont., and Mary (Ellis) Manning of West Chester, Pa.; first wife, Bonnie Bateman Sillers; five grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and a small vegetable garden of which he was fiercely proud. A wake will be held to celebrate Dan’s life and spirit at a date to be determined. For now, a toast to Dan that he often gave to us: May those who love us, love us; may those who don’t love us, love us; and for those who may not love us, may God turn their hearts; and if She may not turn their hearts, may She turn their ankles; so that we may know them by their limping.

A devout Catholic, Bill's faith drove him to attend Holy Mass every day, for years and take part in the community rosary and Nocturnal Adoration and various prayer groups. He donated countless hours to and raised tens of thousands of dollars for Trinidad Catholic Schools, Holy Trinity Parish, Holy Trinity Clothing Center, the Knights of Columbus and other Catholic and charitable ventures. No one can ever recall Bill saying "no" when it came time to raise money or do good for others. Bill was a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus and held the office of Chancellor, Knights of Columbus #1072. He was a member of Elks Lodge #181 and also took part in meetings and charitable events for that group. Although Bill was a worker who never seemed to stop, he also knew how to have fun. His varied interests included antique cars, sports, roller skating, his cherished Jeep Cherokee, horse racing, concerts, biking, dining out, dancing, record and autograph collecting, and of course, buying everything and anything related to his beloved John Elway and the Denver Broncos in general. His collection was amazing, and his apartment above Skateland resembled a gridiron museum. Bill's trademark, so to speak, were the annual football betting "pools" that he faithfully ran each and every football season for decades. He could often be seen scurrying around town with that big, white pool board, hustling customers and getting the board filled in anticipation of another great season. It's safe to say that football season in Trinidad won't ever be the same without Bill and his pools. In his retirement, Bill never slowed down. Whether it was dog watching for his friend Lynn Smith, attending prayer and pro life meetings, traveling to concerts with Eli and Zak DeBono, working on his Jeep, or doing good for others. Bill made the most of every waking moment. He was a person who truly embraced and enjoyed life and he held his family and friends close to his heart. Everywhere he went, Bill made friends easily and quickly, whether it was a professional athlete at a fund-raiser or a homeless man in Denver. A person of Bill's caliber and character won't ever be replaced. Thankfully, we all have many memories of Bill which can serve us until we join our be-loved friend. We should all try to live life the way Bill did: simply and with vigor, faith and excitement. Preceding Bill in death are parents Efisio and Rose Simola, four brothers: Joe Orlando Simola, Angela Simola, Efisio Simola Jr., and John Simola. Survivors are brother Ted Simola and wife Phyllis, three sisters Lucille Ritchey and husband Neal, Katie Dole and Jacqueline Weiderman, numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and a host of many friends.

Simon, Andrew (Son of)
Son of Andrew Simon – Walsenburg World – March 14, 1895 – Saddest of the Sad – Wednesday afternoon a little son of Andrew Simon aged two years and seven months in trying to follow his father got lost. He was missed about 4:30 and the parents and others began a search. The mother walked the fields all night while neighbors on foot and horseback scattered in every direction. A fire was built upon the hill in hope of attracting the child to it. Morning dawned with no trace of the little one. Work at the mines for the day ceased and the men of camp turned out. It was near 10 o’clock that Mr. Riley and Richard Trimbath came upon the lad prostrate on its face on the open prairie nearly 2 miles east of his home. Efforts were made to resuscitate the child but without effect. The burial occurred on Friday. It is only a year since the parents buried an infant. One child, a girl, remains to comfort the sad hearts of the parents. May God sustain them.

Thursday morning, when some of the waitresses went to work at the restaurant they found the proprietor lying on the floor with his head frightfully crushed and mangled. His head had been beaten and crushed with some blunt instrument. A punch board and the prize jewelry which went with it were missing. This leaves the officers to believe that robbery was the object of the attack on the Chinaman. Whether any money was taken is not known. The safe is said to have been open and that there was about $4,000 in currency there which was untouched. The robbery may have been perpetrated by amateurs or the thieves may have been frightened away before they could secure the money. Quong Tong has been running a restaurant in Walsenburg for a long number of years. He was an old wrinkle-faced Chinaman of nobody knows how many years. He was quiet and inoffensive in his ways, and there are many old-time residents in Walsenburg who never knew that such a man was in business in the town. The officers of the law are doing their best to ferret out the mystery. Walsenburg World – December 18, 1919 – Inquest of Quong Sing – Inquiry on Death of Chinaman Fails to Disclose Murderer – The Coroner’s Jury on the case of the death of Quong Sing, a Chinese restaurant keeper, who was murdered last Wednesday night returned the verdict: “That the deceased Quong Sing came to his death during the night of December 10 or morning of December 11, in the restaurant conducted by himself on W. 7th St., Walsenburg.” “The jury further finds that death was caused from gunshot wounds penetrating the heart and chest, fired with felonious intent by party or parties unknown to the jury.” Two Mexican women who had been waiting on tables in the restaurant and two men were examined, but their testimony indicated no trace of the murderers. It was learned that Quong Sing had a brother, Kong Sing, who keeps a grocery and restaurant on Market Street in Denver, and a son of the man, said to be the brother, came down Monday to see the coroner and find out regarding the belongings and financial affairs of the deceased.

Kathy’s entire family (parents, siblings, etc., etc.) were murdered by the Nazis during the Holocaust, leaving infant Kathy as one of the world’s youngest Holocaust survivors.

After all, at least 6 million Jewish people were murdered during the Holocaust, but Kathy survived! Not only did Kathy survive, but, in a sense, she thrived. Among her many accomplishments is that she got a master’s degree in chemistry and had a successful career working and/or supervising the labs at Kaiser and at the Cleveland Clinic. At the time of her passing, Kathy was engaged to be married to “the love of my life” Puebloan Gerald “Jerry” Rosenblatt, who is president of Pueblo’s United Hebrew Center, and who also supervises the care of Pueblo’s B’Nai Jacob Cemetery. Jerry considers Kathy to be “one of the most fascinating and compassionate people I’ve ever met, truly one of a kind, and the love of my life.” Off and on, for a number of months, Kathy and her fiancé Jerry were working on her biography, “My Journey Through ‘Holy’ Hell,” which Jerry hopes eventually to finish and publish. There will be a graveside service at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 26, 2016, at B’Nai Jacob Cemetery, located at 23rd and Montezuma, Pueblo, CO 81003.

Her life was a blessing to everyone she met, we're sure she's in heaven making new friends up there yet. Our hearts are heavy, our tears feel like stone, but her unabided love to us, will never let us feel alone." Mom, we will ALWAYS love you, Virgil, John, and Mike
