Ernest "Ernie" W. Anderson September 15, 1921 - January 5, 2015 Ernest "Ernie" W. Anderson passed away peacefully on January 5, 2015, at his home in Grand Junction, Colorado surrounded by his loving family. Ernie was born on September 15, 1921, to John W. and Gwendolyn Anderson in Golden, Colorado. He was the fourth of ten children and attended schools in Golden. Ernie answered the call of his country and served during WWII in General Patton's Third Army. Ernie was in four major campaigns in Europe during WWII, including D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge, and received the Bronze Star in France in 1944. He met Elaine Churches (daughter of Ralph J. and Vivian Churches) on the day he returned home from WWII. They were married in Denver in 1946. Ernie and Elaine started their life together in Golden where Ernie worked in construction for Coors Brewing Company and Elaine worked in the Coors Porcelain Plant. Ernie and Elaine moved to Steamboat Springs in 1959, as the new owners of the Ski-Vu Motel. In 1962, they purchased Steamboat Floral and Greenhouse. At that time, Ernie also started his general contracting business building custom homes, cabins and cabinetry, as well as remodeling. Ernie later hired Donnie Sandelin and they worked together for 20 years. After retiring from his business, Ernie became a familiar face as a shuttle bus driver for Steamboat Ski Corporation where he worked for 12 years. Ernie and Elaine permanently retired to Grand Junction in 1992. Ernie was a true Colorado native loving the outdoors, hunting, fishing and all that the Colorado mountains have to offer.

Bieber, Marguerite  
Marguerite M. Bieber October 7, 1920 - January 15, 2015 Marguerite passed away peacefully on January 15, 2015, with her family by her side at Fairacres Manor in Greeley, CO. Born to Axel and Mabel Mortensen in Brayton, Iowa, she spent her early years on her grandfather's nearby farm. The family then moved to Chicago and later settled in Cheyenne, Wyoming, in 1930. Marguerite graduated from Cheyenne High School in 1938, and in 1942, she graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Wyoming where she served as President of the Association of University Women. Upon graduation, she accepted a teaching position in Evanston, Wyoming. In 1944 she enlisted in the Women's Army Corp, serving at the Pentagon in intelligence, assisting in the analysis of Japanese communications in the Pacific. She often said that her wartime service in Washington, D.C. was the highlight of her life. She married Edwin D. Bieber in 1945 with whom she raised four children. His work as a mining engineer took them to Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona. A teacher and principal, Marguerite concluded her career in Clifton, Arizona, as principal of Laugharn Elementary School. Upon her retirement in 1985, Marguerite returned to what she felt was her true home, Grand Junction, Colorado, where she was a devoted member of the First Presbyterian Church, her beloved Reviewers Club, Delta Kappa Gamma, and PEO. An avid traveler in retirement, Marguerite traveled to all the continents. She particularly enjoyed her National Geographic voyage up the coast of South America, her adventures in Russia and her final trip, taken with her sister, Mary, to India at the age of 86. Marguerite always believed books were furniture for the mind. From discovering the first pages of the Little Red Hen to the beloved sisters in Little Women and the biographies of many inspirational lives, her reading life reflected that of an 18th century bluestocking - well-versed in the voices and hearts of humankind. Marguerite is survived by her sister, Mary Burman, of Laramie, Wyoming and her brother, Joe (Kathy) of Midland, Michigan; three children, Dutch (Diane) Bieber of Helena, Montana; Mary B. (Peter) Kurtz of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and Meg (Dion) Spencer of Greeley, Colorado; Karen Bieber of Dallas, Texas; Michael's surviving widow; nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
