Ella Yuhas Obituary
Ella Galbate Yuhas passed from this life after a brief illness on April 15, 2014. Ella was born on April 18, 1919, in Toluca, IL to Joseph and Lucy Galbate. They later moved to Streator, IL where she attended school and met the love of her life, Albert Yuhas. Ella and Al were married on August, 12, 1939 and were looking forward to celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary this August. Ella worked as a beautician before raising five children. The family moved to Boulder, CO in 1961, where Ella worked for a time at Neodata before becoming an Administrative Assistant for the Psychiatric Department of Wardenburg Student Health Center, University of Colorado. After she retired, Ella and Al traveled throughout the United States and Europe. She enjoyed reading and politics, and outings to the nearby casinos where the mountain scenery was as much of a pleasure to her as her occasional win. She stayed active in volunteer activities, but her greatest joy was her family. She treasured the time spent with her husband, five children, three grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Ella was preceded in death by her brother, Lester Galbate, and sister, Frances Mazak Blanchfield. She is survived by her husband, Albert; children, David Yuhas, Boulder; Janis (Jacques) Giraud, Mouans-Sartoux, France; Christine Yuhas, Breckenridge; Valerie (Michael) Tolerico, Lakewood; and Michael Yuhas, Boulder; as well her grandchildren, Michael (Sarah) Tolerico, Phoenix; Alisha (Corey) Buck, Broomfield; and Joseph Tolerico, Lakewood; and five great-grandchildren. Visitation will be held from 6-8 pm Monday April 21 at Crist Mortuary 3395 Penrose Pl. Boulder. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10am Tuesday April 22 at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church 1318 Mapleton Ave., Boulder. To send condolences please go to www.cristmortuary.com.
