Carolyn "Carrie"
Electa Sudar, of
Walsenburg, Colorado
died at age 81 on
August 23, 2018. Her
husband of 57 years,
Jon Sudar, parents
Carl O. Davis, Ruth
Davis (Ridge/Lee),
sisters Marian Novotny and Debbie
Lee preceded her in death.
Carolyn lived in Walsenburg until
age 14, when the family moved to
Littleton. She graduated from Littleton
High School in 1954. Carolyn
worked at Milner's Bakery, Sell-4-Less
Drugstore, and Littleton National
Bank and was a homemaker until
1976. She then worked as assistant
manager at Arapahoe Community
College Bookstore from 1974-1991 and
Bank One from 1991 – 1996.
An active member of her Littleton
community, Carolyn volunteered at
her children's school when they were
young, and volunteered at polling
stations during elections. She moved
to the Grand Canyon in 1996, where
she served on the board of the local
library. In 2008, Carolyn and her husband
Jon retired to their hometown
of Walsenburg where Carolyn volunteered
at the Spanish Peaks Library.
Carolyn delighted in bringing
people together and making them
laugh with her jokes,
noting that she got
the best ones from
her favorite dentist,
Dr. Pat. She enjoyed
spending time with
her family and
friends, hiking, camping, gardening,
and picnicking, and always had a
good book to read.
Carolyn said her best achievements
were hot air ballooning and climbing
Mt. Whitney, and her greatest accomplishment
was her daughters.
She is survived by daughters Jaye
Sudar (Dan Harper) of Walsenburg,
Lori Kesler (Bill) of Littleton, and Jill
Brogdon of Denver, sister-in-law Toni
Laumbach (Karl) of Las Cruces, NM;
grandsons Erin, Stefan, Bryan and
Daniel Thomas, Dayne Bieghler, Sean
Kesler, Cameron Miller, and Matthew
Harper; granddaughters Frances
Miller, Morgan Harper and Natalie
Stellmach (Darryl); Nephews Matthew
Novotny and Kristopher Laumbach;
nine great-grandchildren; many
other relatives and friends.
Per Carolyn's request, there are no
memorial services. Instead, donations
can be made to Spanish Peaks Public
Library's Children's Library, 415
Walsen Ave, Walsenburg, CO 81089.
