Nancy Jo Wolf Flett died peacefully
with family on October 12, 2018 from
complications of recent heart disease.
Nancy was born September 27th
1936 in Wadena, Minnesota. She grew
up in Staples, Minnesota where she
was salutatorian of her Staples High
School graduating class. She attended
the University of Minnesota, earning
a baccalaureate degree in Business
Administration. There Nancy
met people who would become an
extended family for this only child.
This included Galen Wilson, and
Margaret Flett, who would later marry
one another. They introduced her to
Margaret's brother Charles Flett when
Nancy and Charles were active in the
Minnesota Young Democrats.
Nancy married Charles and they
moved to Renville, Minnesota where
they had a son, Michael. Following
Charles' law career they moved to
Wheat Ridge, Colorado. After moving
to Newcomb Street in Arvada, they
had a daughter, Marguerite. Moving
further north in Arvada, she was an
involved mother for her kids, worked
as a teacher's aide at Juchem Elementary
School, and tirelessly worked as
a volunteer for the Jefferson County
Democrats. She also actively supported
her husband as he practiced
law and ran for political office.
She was elected to the Colorado
state legislature in 1974. Nancy enjoyed
being an active part of government,
reading three newspapers a day
to keep abreast of what was happening
in her district. She also researched
countless pages of proposed bills and
was a sponsor of the bill that created
the Standley Lake Regional Park. Following
her time at the state capitol,
she was appointed to be the Jefferson
County Public Trustee, where she
enjoyed working with the staff and
the public. Her next career move
was to join the law firm of Fairfield
and Woods as a legal assistant with
a specialty in real estate. She held
a similar position at the law firm of
Ireland Stapleton until she retired and
continued to live in Arvada.
In retirement she enjoyed travels
to locations north and south of the
U.S. as well as throughout Colorado.
She continued to keep abreast of current
events with voracious reading of
newspapers and magazines.
Nancy was preceded in death by
her parents William W and Teresa
Smith Wolf, her special Aunt Agnes
Smith, her brother-in-law James Flett,
and brother-in-law Galen Wilson. She
will be missed by her son Michael,
her daughter Marguerite, and sisterin-
law Marcia Flett and her daughters
Tracy Flett and Allison O'Hearn (Bernie),
sister-in law Margaret Wilson
and her sons Christopher(Frances),
John (Kym), and William (Jen), her
brother-in-law Robert (Sue) and her
