Born in 1922, our beloved Aunt Mary Alice passed into glory two weeks shy of Mother's Day 2018.
A remarkable woman, she was a perfect model of The Greatest Generation. Mary Alice outlived three decorated World War II officers, each of whom gave her both biological children and stepchildren and grandchildren in loving abundance
She showered each and every one in her families and many friends, acquaintances and business associates with affection, patience, leadership and humor.
She loved her homes in the foothills, beginning with the 1929 $500 cabin up Cub Creek that she shared with her family: parents Ernest Roscoe and Rachel Lee Bails, big sister Elizabeth "Betty" and younger brother James "Jim."
During and after World War II and Korea, her nieces and nephews Susan, Sally and Bernard Lentz, and Mark and Jenny Bails were often at the cabin with their mother, Diane Bails.
During World War II, she married Donald W. Carson. They had four children: David R. Carson of Loveland, Stephen W. Carson of Evergreen, and two sweet angel daughters, Carol and Julie Ann; and there were Carson cousins, nieces and nephews too numerous to mention.
After marrying James McGrail, she shared a deep affection for his two sons, Joseph McGrail, his eldest son, of Cañon City and Fran McGrail, his youngest son.
After Jim passed, Mary Alice remarried a dear friend, Robert "Smokey" Stoffel. Mary Alice and Smokey had a remarkable fun-filled journey, enhanced by the large Stoffel clan: sons Mike, Dave, Steve, Eric and Kirk, and daughters Kathy and Terry. What a lot of shining times traveling, hiking and skiing.
When Smokey passed in 2009, Mary Alice rekindled her deep affection with her first love, Robert Rutledge of Montrose. These East High Angels, their delightful companionship maintained faithfully through the years, inspired all they knew and loved.
