Lee B. Kapus, 76, Cedaredge, passed away Sept. 16, 2012.
A celebration of Lee's life will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012, at the Hotchkiss Elks Lodge.
She was born Sept. 1, 1936, in Basin, Wyo., and grew up in a military family. Lee spent three of those years in Germany and had many happy memories from that time. She graduated from high school in Brookfield, Ill., and moved to Denver the next day. Lee and Bob married March 24, 1956.
She was a talented and prolific producer of quilts, knitting, embroidery and many other needlework skills. She used her talents to give many gifts of love to several organizations for preemies, veterans, firefighters and others.
Lee will be missed and remembered by her family and friends for her kind heart and her ability to encourage all of her family to be "their own person" and to "love who they were so that they could love others." "It is what it is."
Lee is survived by her husband Bob Kapus; their children, Robin Laurie Dunn and her husband Aubrey of Roswell, N.M., Diana Robinson and her husband Brian of Missoula, Mont., Jim Kapus and his wife Jennifer of Denver, and Lisa Kapus of Avondale, Ariz.; eight grandchildren, Blair, Caleb, Kirby, Jamie, Chelsey, Jed, Major and Kasey; and one great-granddaughter, Harper.
