Obituary

"Jacqueline Leora Anderson, beloved wife of Jeff Anderson for 47 years and beloved mother and best friend of Lauren Anderson, passed into God's eternal care on August 10, 2020 at home with her family. She was laid to rest at a private memorial and committal service within the sacred serenity, beauty and peace of Mepkin Abbey, on August 20, 2020.

After retiring from NCMIC Group, Inc. in  Des Moines as Vice President, Compliance & Corporate Secretary, Jacquie and her husband retired in Charleston, South Carolina, where she adored the Lowcountry  marshes and ocean. Jacquie lived life to the fullest and loved to travel with her husband and daughter...but always welcomed being "home" again! She was an avid reader and a superlative chef, often demonstrating her cooking talents with family and friends. She loved our Lord and Savior and was a true child of God, extending his care and love for anyone in need. She was an "angel of kindness and love" to those whose life she touched!

One of Jacquie's pastors recently reflected on her life...

"Jacquie--such a precious woman. She was wise and gregarious like a middle child. She was faith-filled beyond her doubts; she was compassionate, and she had a knack of recognizing God in the oddities of life. And oh how she could read scripture--as if she had written every word and let her heart speak them."

In addition to husband Jeff of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina and daughter Lauren Anderson of Chicago, Illinois, survivors include sister Melanie Madigan of Tigard, Oregon; brother Tim Guenthner of Denver, Colorado; and brother Craig Guenthner of Lakewood, Colorado; along with several nieces and nephews.

Memorials are welcome to St. John's Lutheran Church in Des Moines, Iowa, "In the City for Good!"

A memorial message may be sent to the family by visiting our website at www.jhenrystuhr.com.

Published by the Des Moines Register from Aug. 20 to Aug. 21, 2020."

Nancy Condit

Author: Nelson Garcia
Published: 8/11/2018 10:28:43 PM, Channel 9 News,
Updated: 10:42 PM MDT August 11, 2018

DENVER — Growing up with his artistic Aunt Nancy Condit, Adam Condit says she always looked at life differently.

"She was intrigued by everything," said Adam Condit, her nephew. "I remember Christmas morning. It's like she could've been one of the kids with me and my sister."

Sixty-five-year-old Nancy Condit was killed after she was struck while riding her bike through Englewood on July 1 [2018]. Police say 33-year-old Dominique Cain hit Condit then fled the scene. Investigators eventually found Cain and she now faces charges of vehicular homicide.

"It was wild, I had seen her the day before," Adam Condit said.
 
He joins a packed house at the Sand Dollar Art Gallery. Nancy Condit ran the gallery with her father, who was also an artist. Saturday afternoon, Nancy Condit's family hosted an open house at Sand Dollar with her artwork on display.

"This is absolutely a way to celebrate Nancy," said Valerie Davis, Nancy Condit's cousin. "This was so perfect because this was Nancy's life."
She loved pottery and painting.

Her niece Traci Carpenter said much of her aunt's artwork was inspired by the outdoors.


"She loved being in nature. She loved everything about nature," Carpenter said. "She would notice things and observe things that nobody else would be aware of."

People came from all around the United States to honor Nancy Condit and her artwork. Her cousin, Susan Kelley came from Austin, Texas.
"I think it's a wonderful tribute to how she affected everybody," Kelley said. "What a fun person to know."

If people don't know Nancy Condit's artwork, they will certainly know her father's. William Condit was a famous watercolorist. In 1945, he designed the mountains which are still on the standard Colorado license plates.

One of Nancy Condit's painting is drawing attention. Recently, she finished painting a cyclist with angel wings.

"There's a lot of meaning you can go really deep into it," Carpenter said. "It makes me feel like she's okay and she wants all of us to know that she's okay."

Obituary

Buck Lee "Bucky" Ford, 62, [who] split his residency between Scottsdale, AZ and Marathon, FL, passed away Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at his home in  Scottsdale. Buck was born February 13th, 1953 in Sweetwater, TX to Arnold and Mary Ford. Buck and his sister, Cyntheia, rounded off a very close and special Texas proud family. Growing up in Texas, Arizona and Colorado, Buck was very proud of his parents and [the] family life that defined who he was to many that knew him.

Buck was married to Terri Lynn (Staup) Ford in Colorado and enjoyed almost 30 years of partnership and friendship. In the last few years, Buck and Terri enjoyed every moment they could at their dream home in the Florida Keys where they planned to retire and spend the rest of their lives together.

In the end, the once Texas Cowboy had truly found his calling on the sandy white beaches of Coco Plum. Buck attended Navajo Elementary School in Phoenix, AZ and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High in Denver, CO where he proudly played football as a cornerback. He returned to Arizona to finish his education at the Arizona State University as a proud Sun Devil. Buck was also a member of the prestigious Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity.

As a serial entrepreneur, Buck was able to create numerous successful business ventures, but none was he more proud of than Surety Placement Services, LLC (SPS) in Scottsdale, AZ, where all three of his children have worked and now own and manage.

In addition to his business successes, Buck was most proud of his philanthropy. As a member of the Executive Counsel to the Board of the Phoenix Boys Club, a board member of the Denver Boys Clubs and a Board member, as well as life member, of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale, Buck had many accomplisments and a tremendous fund-raising ability. Being able to help children in need made Buck's huge heart a little warmer every day. In addition to the Boys and Girls Clubs, Buck was a supporter of the Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club, among many other charitable organizations.

Without question, the most important thing in Buck's life was his family. The level of pride he had for his familiy was unmatched. It defined him as a son, a brother, a husband, a father and grandfather. Nothing came before family.

Thankfully, he was surrounded by family at the moment he passed. Buck is survived by his wife, Terri Lynn Ford, his two sons, Jason Arnold Ford and Buck Lee Ford, Jr., his daughter, Erin Elizabeth Ford, his sister, Cyntheia Ford Abbott, and his two grandchildren by his son, Jason: Taylor Bucklee Ford and Piper Kinney Ford. In addition, Buck very much loved his two daughters-in-law, Danielle and Michelle Ford.

Buck and his family have chosen to have a private service to honor him, as was his request. There will be a celebration of life in the future. The family will offer information at that time. Donations in his honor may be made to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale in the form of a financial gift in the name, Buck Lee Ford. You can contact the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale through their website at www.bgcs.org or by visiting one of the local Scottsdale run Clubs. Please always heed the infamous Bucky advice and while living life, remember to "drive it like you stole it, not  like you own it!"

Obituary

Brighton resident, Karen L. Henkell, passed away May 4 at her home in Inglenook at Brighton.

Karen was born in Denver Oct. 2, 1953, to Arthur T. and M. Catherine "Kay" Henkell. Karen was the youngest of three sisters raised by their parents in the University Hills neighborhood of  southeast Denver. Karen attended neighborhood schools and was active in Girl Scouts and Job's Daughters. 

Following her sophomore year at Denver's Thomas Jefferson High School, Karen moved with her parents to Beaumont, Texas. At Beaumont's Forest Park High School, Karen was welcomed into the Texas tradition of competitive girls' drill teams as a member of "Tro-janns. "

After high-school graduation in 1971, Karen attended North Texas State University, in Denton, Texas, where she focused on art and drafting.  After college, she returned to Colorado, where she began a lifetime career in the container and packaging industry.  She settled in Westminster and later moved to Brighton. 

Karen was a people person, which suited her perfectly in her position as customer service representative for Colorado Container Corp. and Foam Fabricators. Her longest tenure was at Packaging Corp. of America, where she worked in both customer service and container design, until her retirement in 2011.

Some of Karen's favorite pastimes with friends included pool, bowling and golf. She played for many years in the Gates Rubber Company Guys and Dolls golf league and enjoyed traveling the state with the group, playing a variety of challenging courses. 

Known to many as "Henk," Karen loved traveling with friends and spending summer weekends at such places as Lake Powell and, more frequently, Lake McConaughy in western Nebraska. 

Although Karen had no children of her own, she cherished her nephews and niece, and all of their children.  Family time with them was a highlight for Karen.  She also had many pets through the years, who were treated as her kids. Karen's most beloved companion of recent years was her favorite Lhasa Apso, Bibs.   They were fast friends, and he was her best "therapy" during her years of failing health. 

Her parents preceded her in death. Survivors include sisters, Pat Chase, and husband, Jerry, and Beverly Preston and husband, Steve; a nephew, Justin Chase, his wife, Mary, and their daughters, Maggie, Liz and Aidyn; nephews Ian Chase, and son, Logan, Trevor Preston and wife, Kim, their daughter, Blair, and son, Reid; a niece, Darcy Fuehrer, her husband, Neil, and daughters, Laramie and Maren.

Karen never knew a stranger and will certainly be remembered and missed by a host of friends.

Tabor-Rice Funeral Home handled the arrangements. Interment was at Crown Hill Cemetery in Wheat Ridge. At her request, Karen will be laid to rest at a private family gathering in the future.

Memorials may be made in Karen's name to The 
American Lung Association, COPD Foundation or The Humane Society.

Charles Wood “Woody” Johnson

May 1st, 1953 - April 9th, 2015

Woody passed away from cancer in 2015.

Obituary

Charles Wood "Woody" Johnson passed away peacefully on April 9, 2015. Woody was born in Pittsburgh, PA, on May 1, 1953, to Robert Grey and Kathleen B. Johnson. The fifth of seven children, he attended elementary school in Webster Groves, MO, before moving to Denver, Colorado, where he graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in 1971. He always enjoyed sports even at a young age, whether it was setting records in swimming, starting on the football team, on the golf course, or skiing in the Rockies. After graduating from Montana State University with a degree in business administration, Woody moved to San Diego, where he attended the Thomas Jefferson School of Law and graduated in 1982. While studying law at night, Woody managed a soft-frozen yogurt store in La Jolla, the first of its kind in the San Diego area.

After graduating from law school, Woody went into business, where he developed a unique technique for recycling precious metals from obsolete main frame computer boards. He later devised a method for recycling computer memory chips for use in video game players. Woody parlayed his success into founding Micro-C. As national sales manager for nearly a decade, Woody grew company sales 100-fold, eventually selling the business to an American Stock Exchange-listed company. Woody also co-founded ColorLink, Inc., a liquid crystal light engine company in 1995, which was bought by RealD in 2007. The technology developed by ColorLink laid the foundation for the modern 3D movie industry including such films as Avatar and Gravity.

Despite his incredible acumen and achievements, Woody was a man who shunned pomp and circumstance and cared only about his friends, loved ones, and what he could do to make the world a better place. He loved sharing his enthusiasm for sports, spending Fridays and Saturdays with his friends at The Farms Golf Club for over 10 years. He also loved tennis and baseball, and he especially looked forward to Football season and spending time with his friends watching the games. Everybody Woody came in contact with loved spending time with him. Most of all, Woody was there to lend a hand whenever he saw someone in need. He dearly loved his family, whom he supported through times of illness and hardship, and whose successes he was deeply proud of. Unlike so many, he cared about the world beyond his inner circle and donated substantial time and resources to an orphanage in Mexico for over 30 years, where countless young girls transitioned from loss and poverty to better lives. 

Woody is survived by his first wife, Jan Thorne, his second wife, Linda Johnson, his older brother, Robert G. Johnson, older sisters JoAnn Henningsen and Jennifer Looney, and his two younger sisters, Sara Cohen and Kristina Johnson, as well as eight nieces and nephews and numerous caring friends. He is predeceased by his parents and sister, Kathleen Laveau. Always possessing a profound sense of humor and a contagious smile, he was loved by all, and will be dearly missed. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salvatierra orphanage in Tecate, Mexico. Donations may be addressed to Los Amigos de Los Niños, 527 Eleventh Street, Del Mar, CA 92014.

Beth was a devoted sister to Jim and Larry Mundell and their wives Sue and Patsy and a loving aunt to Jeff, Jenna, Nick and Matt. Beth was also a proud great-aunt to Rebecca Jean, Morgan and Kate. Beth's friendships spanned decades and touched many lives around the world. She had a way of opening her heart, mind and soul in the most active and loving way. Beth made our lives all the better for it.

I know this is 50 years late, but I learned of our tragic loss when I was in the Army in Germany.  I was so consumed with the sense of loss.  Gail & I were still together and we shared our unmeasured grief.  Wendy was, in knowing her as I did,
the sweetest, kindest, most intelligent person I had ever met.  I still think of her often.  She was a cheerleader when Gail was a Pom-Pon, so the connections run deep.
