Joan, 80, a 35-year resident of Colorado Springs passed away on November 7th.|
Though her memory was unmercifully stolen from her, we will always remember her for her gentle spirit, her caring nature, and her devotion to God. She was a quiet unassuming rock in our family who always put others before herself.
Joan was a devoted wife, a loving mother and grandmother. She leaves behind six children; Mike (Juvi) Gasser, Paul (Kim) Gasser, Ray (Heather) Gasser, Teresa (Rich) Fletcher, Linda (Brett) Moore, and Laura (Ben) Hoelting: and eleven grandchildren, Matthew, Cailyn, William, Rachel, McKenzie, Lauren, Brooklyn, Eli, Amanda, Zach and Morgan. She was preceded in death by her husband Tom of 57 years, who passed away in July, 2012.
Visitation will be held on Sunday, November 10 from 6:00 - 7:30 followed by a Rosary at 7:30, Swan-Law Funeral Home, 501 N. Cascade Ave. A Funeral Mass to celebrate Joan's life will be held on Monday, November 11 at 10:00 at Corpus Christi Catholic Church; 2318 N. Cascade Ave., with a reception to follow. A private burial will be held at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver.
We would like to thank the Emeritus at Bear Creek Memory Unit team who cared for Joan during the last few months.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Corpus Christi Catholic Church or Saint Mary's High School.
