Ninety-four years ago in a little house on South Eighth Avenue in Brighton, Lenore Ann Westermann was born. At the age of 4, she and her family moved to the two-story yellow house on the corner of Strong Street and Fifth Avenue where she resided for the next 90 years.
Lenore was a lifetime member of Zion Lutheran Church in Brighton where she was baptized and confirmed. She attended Zion Lutheran School from first through eighth grade. She attended Brighton High School which, at that time was at the corner of Eighth Avenue and Bridge Street.
After high-school graduation, she continued her education by attending the University of Colorado in Boulder, where she honorably graduated Phi Beta Kappa with an emphasis in Spanish. She was hired by Great Western Sugar Co. as a translator and interpreter for the laborers who came in the summer to work in the beet fields. She was eventually hired as secretary to the president of Great Western Sugar and moved to its offices in downtown Denver. She completed her career by retiring as the vice president of Great Western.
During her retirement she traveled with friends, welcomed neighbors, delivered Meals on Wheels and always showed love for her family.
Her parents, Ernst and Anna; a brother, Edwin Westermann; and sisters, Annette Waiss and Irma Bettger, preceded her in death. Her survivors include a brother, Ernst (Bud) (Jeanne) Westermann, of Loveland; her "niblings," as she affectionately called them, James (Sue), Paul, and Timothy Bettger, Pam (Dennis) Keith, Christine (Preston) Gilson, Eric Westermann, Andrea (Lonnie) Sheldon, Fred (Verlene) and William Waiss; and a plethora of great- and great-great nieces and nephews. Some 94 years ago at her baptism, Lenore was promised a crown of life. Today, she has received it. Go in peace.
A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 25, at Tabor Funeral Home, 75 S. 13th Ave., Brighton, which handled the arrangements. Memorials may be made to Zion Lutheran School, 1400 Skeel St., Brighton 80601.
