Adams, Adeline Czarny  
Adeline Czarny Adams, 89, was a longtime resident of Englewood. She died May 17, 2015 at Julia Temple Healthcare Center in Englewood. She was born in Fergus Falls, MN on July 5, 1925 to Arthur Leonard Miller and Margaret Munger Miller. She attended Moorhead State Teachers College where in her freshman year she was recognized as one of the highest ranking freshmen. She married Alex Czarny on March 12, 1947 in Chicago, IL. He had been a B-17 ball turret gunner in World War II. During the war Adeline worked for the Treasury Department in Chicago, and later worked for a radio station in Fergus Falls where she produced five programs daily. Adeline and Alex moved to Denver in January 1949 and bought a house in Englewood on Elati Street. They began building a new house in 1956 in Englewood. When time allowed they enjoyed camping in the mountains and square dancing. In later years, they enjoyed traveling to many places, especially to Hawaii and Mexico. In 1965, Adeline began a 25-year career as a bookmobile libriarian on the "Roadrunner" for the Englewood, Colorado Public Library, where her passion was inspiring children to read. By the time she retired, the "Roadrunner" accounted for roughly a third of the entire library's 300,000 circulation. She was also a volunteer story teller for the Englewood Public Schools until 2006. She was known for her handmade puppets and puppet shows. She was a faithful member of Englewood Presbyterian Church. Adeline was predeceased by Alex, her husband of 40 years; her second husband Dearl Adams; daughter Susan Kay Czarny; stepson Darryl Wallace Adams. She is survived by her son Alan (Linda), granddaughter Alia (Greg) Mancari and great-granddaughters Evie and Violette. Also surviving are her sister Mary Holo, brother Robert Miller, stepson Darwal Adams and his family, as well as a host of nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Friends of the Englewood Public Library and mailed to Englewood Public Library, Attn: Dorothy Hargrove, 1000 Englewood Parkway, Englewood, CO, 80110, or to Englewood Presbyterian Church, 3500 S.

Blair, Betty Davis  
Born to Stella and Samuel Davis on July 5, 1926, in Shamokin, Pennsylvania. The family moved to Baltimore and grew with the birth of siblings Dolores, Sam Jr., and Joyce. Betty would fondly recall, skipping school and going to the movies with friends giggling away when, from the seats directly behind her, she heard her parents ask what she was doing there. During the war, she fell in love with a member of the U.S. Air Force, Carl F. Blair, and married June 14, 1947. Within a couple of years, she welcomed sons David (born in 1949, married to Diana), and later, Carl Jr. (born 1951, married to Bea). They moved to Littleton, Colorado in 1956, where she lived in a house just behind Centennial Racetrack. There she became a mother again to two more sons, Rick (born 1959, married to Julie) and Gary (born 1967, married to Susan). Keeping up with four sons and house work was no easy task, yet she managed it with courage, gumption, and faith. A devoted Catholic, Betty attended St. Mary's Parish for 59 years, and insisted that all of her sons enroll in St. Mary's. Through the years, Betty held many jobs, once working three jobs at a time to help with family finances. Betty was memorable everywhere she found a position, including: Centennial Racetrack, Arapahoe Drug Store, Centennial Bank, Columbine Country Club, and with the Denver Broncos. Many remember Betty as one of the "singing" beer ladies (Level 3) during all Bronco home games for many years at Mile High. After retiring, Betty enjoyed activities at the senior center, flirting at bingo and gambling at the penny slots in Central City and Blackhawk. One of the most important things to Betty was family. She was a fantastic mother and adored by all who knew her including: her children, grandchildren – Gina, Melissa (Nate), Patti (Seth), Kim (Scott), Alex, and David; and greatgrandchildren – Bayle, Mason, Maddux, Izzy, and Zach. She loved traveling with family on cruises and vacations to Walt Disney World, Alaska, Mexico, and Hawaii. Her humor gave us hope and reminded us not to take life too seriously. Even in her last days, she told her doctor she could get up and do "a Polish jig" if he would find some music. Her laugh sent waves of joy throughout a room, often leaving everyone in tears because we laughed so hard. We remember her as feisty, but honorable, loving, giving, and also our matriarch. Betty passed May 19, in the arms of her beloved sons. Her life celebration will be held Saturday, May 30 at 1p.m., at Drinkwine Mortuary in Littleton.

Brown, Rod  
Rodney Lee Brown of Golden, CO died suddenly at the age of 61 on June 8, 2015 while riding his bicycle with his beloved wife Natalie Marino. Rod was born in Boulder, CO on November 26, 1953, son of Roger James Brown and Florence Beatrice Sewell Brown. He attended Bell Middle School (formerly Gertrude Bell Junior High) and Golden High School. He graduated from Barber College and became an accomplished hair stylist as well as "rolling up his sleeves" to become an excellent traditional barber. Rod took great pride in his work. Rod was also ultracompetitive. While growing up, he honed his hand-eye coordination and athletic gifts while tormenting his older brother Randy James Brown (wife Carol) and his younger brother Ricky Lynn Brown (wife Julie). He was always gracious in winning but a little grumpy with a loss. He was an avid tennis player, loved playing pool, a creative and imaginative jeweler, and a huge Bronco fan. Rod had an engaging personality and made friends quickly. Growing up, he faced many challenges and life was sometimes difficult but he always pushed forward, had a quick wit and made people laugh with his jokes and stories. Rod was very proud of his family and loved his children deeply. Even though he was not always able to spend as much time with family as he wanted, his heart was always with daughters Cristyl and Sarah, son Bryan and stepson Gunner. As Rod grew older he became more kind and loving. While he did not have many worldly possessions, he would give you the shirt off his back. He so enjoyed spending time with his older brother Norman Todd (wife Helen June), their family as well as with all of his nieces, nephews and cousins. He talked often about his wonderful aunts and uncles. Rod was admired for his adventurous and individualistic qualities. He rarely took the easy or traditional road, which enriched his and his family's lives, but also led to some arduous times. But he never complained or shied away from a challenge. His gift as a tissue and organ donor exemplifies his big heart and love for life and others. He left us far too soon, but was always "full on" and made the most out of his short time here on earth. His spirit will be felt around Golden and Boulder; so as you ride the bike paths and streets, and you feel joy in your heart, it just might be some love emanating from his wonderful spirit. Family and friends are invited to celebrate Rod's life on Saturday, July 18, 2015 at 11 am (lunch following) at the Arbor House at Maple Grove Park, 14600 West 32nd Ave, Golden, CO.
