LaMeta was a force of nature and a Renaissance Woman ahead of time. We are all blessed for having known her. Peace, Jim Chaney
I spent a lot of time with the Lubchenco family growing up and they were a wonderful family. I admired LaMeta for never noticing she was disabled. My thoughts are with all her wonderful daughters who were some of the nicest people I ever knew.
My deepest sympathies go out to all of the Lubchenco girls. Your mom was a big part of my years at St. Phil's. We were lucky indeed to have her as our scout leader.I have MANY happy memories of our camping trips and our meetings in the basement at St. Phil's. I loved my friendship with all of the Lubchencos, especially you, Annette! I'm sure your mom lived life to the fullest. She was always a powerhouse. I know you will miss her dearly.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Lubchenco family. I was fortunate to have LaMeta as my Girl Scout leader for several years. We felt so much safer on those winter trips to the lodges having a pediatrician and surgeon along with us!
Hello to Jane, Annette, Mary Lou, Peggy and Carolyn. I am in awe of all you have accomplished.
I have fond memories of Mrs. Lubchenco's kindness when we were in Girl Scouts at St. Philomena's. I am so sorry for your loss.
My thoughts and prayers are with LaMeta's family and her 10:30 Catholic Community, of which I was privileged to be a member. I remember my, then, husband and I bringing our new baby daughter Leah to church and LaMeta made a bee-line to us after Mass. Her smile, congratulations and adoration of our baby was such a loving, welcoming act. I was also privileged to see some of LaMeta's nativity sets and hear stories of the inspiring traditions behind them. Special love to Annette who helped our family so much! With gratitude, Monte Clarke
Knowing LaMeta was a privilege that enhanced my life, my neighborhood, my family and my church. I will always remember her fondly and the smile and enthusiasm for life and learning that she showed. She was always eager to show her collection of nativities and explain their histories and stories of where she had traveled and how she obtained them. Just today I packed up two receiving blanket that LaMeta made with her loving hands for my daughters that will now be used by their babies. She will be remembered for the exceptional woman she was and be missed. The Adler Finney family sends their condolences to the family.
The few times I visited Denver as a medical student, I visited Dr. Dah in her home. These visits and what I learned from Dr. Dahl helped me be a better person and physician. I benefitted as did the medical students I later taught, passing on some of her wisdom and inspiration.
Thank you, Dr. Dahl.
Mutti has passed on so much strength, courage, joy and meaning. Thank you Mutti for continuing to impact many lives. You will always live in our hearts and spirits. God Bless and we love you, Mutti!
Remembering the Lubchenco family from my years at St. Philomenas.
It was a great privilege to have known LaMeta and Michael Lubchenco. Their gusto for life, and caring respect for the people around them was truly an inspiration. I loved their stories and the twinkles in their eyes. I expect to see a new bright star in the heavens. LaMeta Dahl Lubchenco will leave a vacancy on this earth that will take many good people to fill. Condolences to her family. Vicki Anderson
Mrs. Lubchenco was a huge inspiration to me. I met her through the DU Hilltoppers when I was a young child and swam with her daughter Carolyn. She was warm, extremely intelligent, and far ahead of her time! I asked her to be my confirmation sponsor because I looked up to her so much! She will always hold a special place in my heart - as she will countless others. Thank you Mrs. Lubchenco for making such a positive impact in my life!
Just a great lady who truly made a difference.
Oh my, oh my, what wonderful memories I have of your mother...who was a dear, dear friend of my own mother, Jessica Barnard Moore Eisele. Love and Blessings to each of you, as you release your sweet mother to Eternal Peace.
Although I never met Lameta, I felt as if I knew her through my friendship with her daughters Jane and Peggy. I heard many memorable stories from their childhood. And many of the qualities I admire in Peggy and Jane clearly were a result of LaMeta's nature and nurturing. What an amazing woman. Her remarkablelegacy lives on in her devoted daughters, grandchildren,and the many people who admired her and whom she helped and mentored.
My sincere condolences to Dr.Lubchenco's family with her passing. She was my "across the alley neighor" for fifty plus years. She was always upbeat and friendly whenever we'd run into each other. She was an inspiration to me as she had a limp resulting from her polio, but it never slowed her down either physically or emotionally as she traveled extensively in her senior years after she was widowed. May God rest her soul.
