May 21, 1935-Dec. 3, 2014

My dearest Cindy, it has been two years since you passed away in your sleep.

You were a great lady and you did so much for our beloved town of Pagosa Springs. You helped save our town’s movie theater and coordinated many fundraising events.

You organized a wonderful group of women in 2008 and they are still contributing to the community today — WHIPS (Women Helping Women in Pagosa Springs). You raised over $15,000 to help needy women in the community. In that group, a senior high school scholarship was established in your honor, helping two young women with $1,200 for each to continue their education.

Posthumously in 2015, you received the 2014 Citizen of the Year award. CUPS, Curtains Up Pagosa, established a scholarship fund in honor of you for attending almost every performance. The ice hockey team in Pagosa named the concession equipment cabin in your honor, as you loved hockey so much.

I am still doing a lot of things you liked. I go to all the community and high school concerts and town events, the Four Corners Folk Festivals, the Fourth of July parades, the Tim Sullivan Foundation and programs. All the people of Pagosa will always remember you.

Much love, Ron

P.S. How is the heavenly ice hockey team doing?
