Ruth Milano Obituary
Ruth (Ruthie) Roberta Milano, 90 of Broomfield passed away on Wednesday April 16, 2014 at TRU Hospice in Louisville. She was born to the late Ellis and Alberta Larson on August 17, 1923 in Denver. She married the late Anthony (Tony) Milano in 1940, and they lived together for over 40 years in Louisville on the family farm (located on the then undeveloped northwest corner of S. Boulder Rd and Hwy 42) before relocating to Broomfield. She is survived by her children and their spouses: Nancy and Lee Baker of Erie, Dave and Treena Milano of Berthoud, Joanie and Skip Mooney of Manitou Springs, Suzie and Billy Schoser of Broomfield. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren. Ruthie was preceded in death by her husband Tony, brother Russ Larson, and daughter-in-law Janet Milano. Ruthie loved to travel, took many cruises, foreign adventures, and a trip around the world. She was an avid Bronco and Rockies fan. In Ruth's early years she worked on the family farm, owned and operated an Italian Pizzelle Company in the Louisville area, and later worked for the Bungalow Drug Store on Main Street. Ruth and Tony enjoyed many years fishing and hiking near their cabin located in Red Feather Lakes. Ruthie was an active member of the Highland Trail Retirement Community in Broomfield. She had many friends, enjoyed playing cards, poker, and never missed an opportunity to gamble in Black Hawk when her health allowed her to go. Ruthie was the anchor of her family and will be dearly missed by all who knew her. A visitation, followed by a Rosary will be held on Monday, April 21 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm at Darrell Howe Mortuary located at 1701 W. S. Boulder Rd, Lafayette. A funeral mass will be held at St. Louis Catholic Church in Louisville on Tuesday, April 22 at 10:00am. A reception will be held at the Louisville Tri-City Elks following the Mass.
