Marie E. McIsaac

Departed on October 17, 2017

Resided in Parker, CO

Marie Elaine (Redding) McIsaac,76, formerly of Wilbraham and North Attleboro, quietly passed away on Monday, October 16, 2017 at the Avantarra hospice, after bravely making the decision to stop all treatment of her progressive lung disease. She was the loving mother of Rebecca (McIsaac) Ververs of Parker, Colo. and John McIsaac of Springfield, Mass.

Born on June 13, 1941, Marie was the loving daughter of the late Myrtle (Beaupre) Redding and Howard Redding, and the much cared for step-daughter of the late Milton French.

Marie grew up in North Attleboro with her big brothers, David and Dennis, little sister Vicki, and a multitude of close-knit cousins. She graduated from King Philip Regional High School in 1959 where she was known for her sense of fun and her infectious laughter.

A resident of Parker, Colo. for the past 5 years, Marie treasured the time she spent with her daughter, Becky, and her grandsons, Charlie and Cooper, with whom she lived until just recently.

In addition to Becky and John, she is survived by her devoted brothers David Redding of North Attleboro and Dennis Redding of South Yarmouth and her beloved sisters-in-law, Marilyn and Betty. She also leaves behind her favorite partner-in-crime, Vicki Lankarge of West Hartford, CT.  In addition to her grandsons Charlie and Cooper, Marie is survived by her much-loved grandsons in Westfield, Jake and Owen McIsaac and their mother, Tracy (Johnstone) McIsaac.

Marie also leaves behind an extended family of nieces and nephews and friends, many of whom played some rollicking hands of pitch, cribbage or rummy with her. All of them will remember – and miss -- her kindness, her laugh, her generous spirit, and the way she waved her arms around when she was telling a story.

The burial will be private. Donations may be made in Marie’s memory to Autism Speaks or The American Lung Association. Alternatively, her family asks that you do an act of kindness for a stranger in her name, or encourage a young person to quit smoking.

 

Barbee Lee Bruce

Departed on October 5, 2017

Resided in Littleton, CO

Barbee Lee Bruce, 62, passed away peacefully with family at her side on October 5, 2017 after a nine plus year battle with Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD).

A celebration of life is scheduled for 2-5pm on October 15th at The Millhouse at Philip S Miller Park, 1381 W. Plum Creek Pkwy, Castle Rock, CO 80109. All are welcome.

Barbee was born in Denver, Colorado on April 11, 1955. She graduated from George Washington High School and later from Colorado State University with a BS degree in Microbiology.

She married Perrie B. Bruce on January 3, 1981; they were married 36 years.

Barbee’s last occupation was first grade teacher at God’s FingerPrints and Hope Christian Academy, a position she held for several years before the onset of the disease.  She loved daily exercising, tennis, hiking, shopping, home decorating, gardening, traveling, being with family and friends. FTD gradually took her loves away. Motorcycling (as a passenger) became her love in earlier stages of the disease. She was able to enjoy the weddings of her first two children and the birth of her first grandchild before the disease worsened.

Barbee is survived by her husband, Perrie; father, Robert Lunde; sister, Sheryl Fleck; daughter, Jennifer and her husband, Michael Tolibas; son, Jordan and his wife, Jenna; daughter, Jaclyn and her husband, Jim Schurk; and grandchildren, Declan and Colbie Tolibas and Jade Bruce.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration or the Alzheimer’s Association.

Dana Michel Grange

Departed on September 23, 2017

Resided in Lone Tree, CO

After a long, exhausting, and many times triumphant battle against multiple health trials, Dana Michel Grange passed away peacefully in her sleep Saturday, 9/23. Dana was loved by many as a dear daughter, wife, mother, and friend. She grew up in Ohio and Kansas before coming to Colorado where she met her perfect lifelong partner in David at CSU; they have two sons: Brendan and Kelton. Her family and friends were always the center of her life, and her consistent willingness to help others and bright attitude towards life could always brighten a room. Dana’s determination and perseverance will always be a guiding light for those that knew her, and she will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts. She is now no longer restrained to a broken body, and we should all find comfort in knowing that she is now free and reunited with her dearest lost canine friend, Amber. Services will be held at 10am Friday, September 29th at the Solomon center at Southeast Christian Church 16965 Pine Lane Parker, CO 80134.

Evelyn Florence Dardano

Departed on September 16, 2017

Resided in Denver, Colorado

Evelyn Florence (Capra) Dardano was born on October 13, 1923 to Pete and Edith (Colacito) Capra. She was born and raised in North Denver along with younger brothers Leonard and Ron. Evelyn married Alfred Dardano on January 1, 1944. They had two sons, Dale and Kenny. She lived in North Denver her entire life.

Our beloved Evelyn was a true, beautiful redhead that loved life. She was ready to get up and go any day and any time. She loved being around people and people loved being around her. Her wealth in life was her family and friends, sense of humor, great stories, love of music and classic movies, playing progressive rummy, bowling with friends, making ceramics, refrigerator magnets, celebrating Halloween, anything Frank Sinatra, and eating dessert.

She was a strong woman with inner peace and happiness. She took care of everyone with her unconditional love and had a strong Catholic faith. Her style and flair indeed lived up to her fiery red hair. We were all blessed with Evelyn in our lives. She lived a long, wonderful life.

She is survived by her sons Dale and Kenny Dardano, grand children Ryan and Dion Dardano, Kendra (Eric) Milton, Krystal Dardano (Topy Griego), great grand children Olivia Goodman, Taylor Dardano, Lyla and Rory Milton, and Orlando and Mila Griego, brother Ron (Loretta) Capra, aunt Esther Head, and daughter in law Devona (John) Algya. She is also survived by nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.  She was preceded in death by her husband, and her brother Leonard Capra.

We are so very grateful for the care she received from all the staff at Wheatridge Manor and the staff from Hospice that came in, as well as the care she received from Kim while still in her home. Your kindness, compassion and professional support are much more appreciated than we can express.

A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 4200 Federal Blvd., on September 26, 2017 at 1:00 pm.
