She was a wonderful Wife, Mother and Friend. She and her Husband moved from Stanton, New Jersey, to Mancos Colorado in 1992 to retire. Though Joe’s idea of retirement meant opening a small corner hardware store in the quiet little town of Mancos. After his passing she finally decided to retire in 2009, closing the doors on Mancos Valley Hardware but kept quite active in the community. She could be found decorating the corners and sidewalks in Mancos around the holidays and hanging flowers at her Grand Ave. building in the spring. In 2009 she decided to become a snowbird although she called it a road runner as she traveled from Mancos Colorado to her winter home in Vero Beach for the winters. She was an avid member of the South Florida Winnie Gators (The Rowdy Bunch) for many years. She was also well known in the Tank Truck Industry and made many friends there. Always the social person, a trip to the post office could take an hour or more just because she loved to talk to people.
She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
A Celebration of her Birthday and her Life will be held at Captain Hiram’s from 4-7:00 PM on Saturday, April 24, 2021.
The family will have a private service for her in Colorado and ask that in lieu of sending flowers they ask that you donate to the Cancer Research Institute or your favorite charity.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
