Gardner, Frances M.
Frances M. Gardner - Pueblo Chieftain - April 17, 2005 - Frances M. Gardner. On April 14, 2005, our beloved Mom and “Mamo” passed away in Pueblo. She faced death with the same courage and dignity in which she lived her life. We were blessed to have her in our lives and she will be so greatly missed. Frances was born in Pueblo on May 22, 1911, graduated from Central High School in 1931 and lived her entire life in Pueblo. She is survived by her daughter, Norma (Wayne) Harre; granddaughters, Diane Wilson and Linda Harre; great-grandchildren, Jennifer, Jaimie, Justin and Michelle; great-great-grandchildren, Isabel and Anthony; special cousins, Estelle Minatta, Don, Mary and Laura Gavato; as well as several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, John Cecil Gardner; granddaughter, Shirley Harre Mast; brother, Warren Valentine; and sister-in-law, Velma Valentine. Frances was a member of Central Christian Church, Past Matron and 50-year member of Adah Chapter No. 34 OES, and a 50-year member of Ruhamah Temple No. 71, Daughter of the Nile. She was a member and served as presiding officer in numerous other groups and was especially proud to have helped organize her 50-year high school class reunion. She loved to entertain guests in her home. Frances and Cecil traveled many miles in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, thoroughly enjoying their retirement. Please take a moment to reflect upon how mom touched your lives and how your life was better for her being in it. Alzheimer's claimed pieces of Mom's life long before death took her. It took away things she enjoyed most like being with her family, friends and her dog Misty, reading and her lovely home. Our greatest wish is that no other person or family will need to face that. In lieu of flowers or food, the family respectfully requests that donations be made in memory of Frances to the Alzheimer's Association, to her favorite charity the Al Kaly Shrine Transportation Fund, or to the charity of your choice, directly or through the mortuary. Mrs. Gardner's family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of Belmont Lodge and Dr. Michael Rendler for their kind and compassionate care these past several years. Visitation for Frances will be held from 2 until 6 p.m. today, Sunday April 17, 2005, at the Davis Mortuary. Private family services will be held.

Gardner, Fred
Fred Gardner - Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain - February 13, 1879 - Death On the Trail. To a person who has never crossed the snowy range in the winter time it is next to impossible to convey an idea of the perils encountered by those who have to traverse the narrow, steep and treacherous trails in some of the mountain passes. Snow slides are of frequent occurrence especially in the early winter before the snow which falls very rapidly has become packed. A very slight jar or agitation will sometimes start an avalanche of several acres. The last victim we have heard of was Mr. Joseph Sellars, the faithful carrier who carries the mail from Silverton to Barber's ranch. The trail crosses the range at Cunningham gulch, and it is a dangerous road even in the summer time. He was coming east a week ago last Thursday and at Deep creek, a locality about one mile beyond Grassy Hill station, he was caught in a slide and carried down into a deep ravine and buried several feet under the snow. Mr. W. D. Watson, the keeper of Grassy Hill station, and several others exerted themselves to recover the body but did not succeed till the Monday following in finding him. The above particulars are gleaned from the Del Norte Prospector, and yesterday we learned from C. L. Weinberg that two other citizens of Silverton perished at the same time. One of them is named Morrison and the other Fred Gardner, a young lawyer formerly of Pueblo, and well known to many of our citizens. The mail had not been recovered at last accounts.

Gardner, Hanna M.
Hanna M. Gardner – Colorado Weekly Chieftain – January 24, 1878 – Died in Del Norte on the 17th inst., of pneumonia, Hanna M., wife of Joseph Gardner, aged 48 years. Mrs. Gardner was a native of Evans, New York state, and has resided in Del Norte about one year, where her two brothers E. J. and J. H. Shaw came about six years ago and where they still reside. Ah, our dear departed wife, mother and sister, thou hast gone, and dark clouds of sorrow hover above us, yet through them we catch occasional glimpses of heaven, and we feel that God's welcome “Come up hither,” was whispered to you. We will miss thee sadly as we continue our earthly journey along, yet we are consoled with the belief that when we lay aside the things of earth, and near that other land, thou, O our dear departed, will meet us, and welcome us to a world where all is peace, and parting is unknown.
