September 25 - HOLLIDAY Marilyn Kay Holliday May 14, 1941 - September 11, 2016 Marilyn Kay Holliday, 75, a longtime resident of Cheyenne Cañon in Colorado Springs, passed on September 11, 2016, at home surrounded by family. A Colorado native, Marilyn was born May 14, 1941, in Sterling to the late Dr. Harold J. and Selma M. (Pagenkopf) Ollhoff. She graduated from Sterling High School (1959) and completed her B.A. in Elementary Education at UNC in Greeley (1963). She enjoyed Greek life as an Alpha Sigma Alpha. She married a fellow teacher, the late Richard “Dick” Holliday, with whom she raised two daughters, and celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2014. Marilyn taught for over twenty years, starting at Mark Twain Elementary (District 11) and retiring from to Cañon Elementary (District 12). Her life-long passion was people. A gifted teacher, she taught hundreds of children the value of their self-worth and shared their unbridled curiosity about the world. She touched many with her ability to listen in earnest, offer wise counsel, and restore faith in oneself no matter the transgression or wound. To know Marilyn was to know a bright spirit with a touch of whimsy. Good food, clever conversation, and boundless humor were offered to all those in her home and heart. An avid art lover, she served as a docent at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. She continued to appreciate art and architecture, especially that of the American Southwest, throughout her life. She had an eye for beauty and style. She also relished traveling; Santa Fe was a favorite destination. She is survived by her daughters, Jennifer (Mark) Sauer of West Linn, Oregon, and Joanna (Robin Slaton) Holliday of Fort Collins, Colorado. She adored her three grandchildren, Lauren, Aidan, and Addison. She was beloved by her cousin, Deanna Rundle of Clay Center, Kansas, and extended members of the Holliday family. A loving person, she brightened our lives and will be deeply missed. Many thanks to those who made her life extraordinarily beautiful. At her request, a private memorial will be held. Memorials may be made in Marilyn's memory to Friends of Cheyenne Cañon; Starsmore Visitor and Nature Center; or the Kidney Cancer Association.
September 25 - HINDS Gordon Douglas Hinds After almost 96 years of life, Gordon Hinds died peacefully on September 18, 2016. He was born on September 22, 1920, to Claude L. Hinds and Audrey Bizzle Hinds, in Macomb, Oklahoma. In 1936, his father brought him to Pueblo, Colorado, where he graduated from Centennial High School and Pueblo Junior College. He continued his education at the University of Colorado. Despite a lifelong hearing impairment, Gordon served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. Following the war, he returned to the University of Colorado and graduated from the School of Law in 1948. Married in 1942 to Mary Dolores Lash, of Pueblo, Gordon fathered two daughters. After law school, the family returned to Pueblo, where Gordon began his law practice. He spent almost all his professional career in public service. He was appointed to fill an unexpired term as Justice of the Peace in Pueblo, and was re-elected in his own right for two additional terms, prior to his appointment as Pueblo's City Attorney in 1954. He served in that position until 1971, when he was appointed as the City Attorney of Colorado Springs. In 1972, he married Vi Marie Weber, with whom he enjoyed 24 years before her death in 1996. After his retirement from the City, Gordon and Vi enjoyed numerous trips, both in the U.S. and abroad. Both were active in community service. During his retirement, Gordon revived his college fascination with acting and performed regularly in theaters across Colorado Springs. He delighted in playing clergymen and anything Shakespearean, and eagerly attacked any role, small or large. His last stage performance, in 2009, was, presciently, as Dead Man in the Cemetery in the Theatreworks production of "Our Town." He attended theater extensively, in Colorado Springs, Denver, and throughout the country, Canada, and England. He was a devotee of classical music, and took particular joy in the Colorado College Summer Music Festival and KCME. A lifelong reader, he consumed fiction, history, biography, essays, and poetry until his failing eyesight would no longer permit him this essential pleasure. Gordon is survived by daughters Leslie C. Robinson (Elgin, IL) and Kristin G. Hinds (Colorado Springs); grandsons Patrick T. Stokes (Loveland, CO) and Andrew G. Stokes (Lafayette, CO); and great-grandson Sebastian Stokes. The family is infinitely grateful to Pikes Peak Hospice for helping to make Gordon's last months comfortable and peaceful. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Throughout his adult life (particularly after his marriage to Vi), Gordon believed strongly in giving back to the community. Some of his regular charitable contributions included the CC Music Festival, Special Olympics, Cheyenne Village, ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and many more. Friends wishing to commemorate Gordon's life are urged to contribute to one of these or any other worthy organization that works to make the world a better place.
