Doris Bublitz Obituary
Doris May Bublitz passed away on March 6, 2014 in Loveland. She was born on January 23, 1927 in Chicago, IL to Arthur and Mildred (Kuempel) Pape. Doris graduated from high school in Arlington Heights, IL. She had some college credits as she had a desire to teach first grade. She married Edward George Bublitz in 1948 and began the big family she dreamed of having. She had seven children and really wanted a dozen. She viewed her children as her greatest accomplishment. Throughout her life, she acted as a second mom to many. Doris and George moved to Loveland, CO after vacationing in the area for 21 years. She was never so happy as when her three brothers and their families followed suit. Doris was a hard worker and held many jobs throughout her lifetime from in the banking industry, the post office, waitressing and finally retiring from Safeway. Although her number one vocation was mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, the work she loved included running the Covered Wagon Restaurant in the Big Thompson Canyon and owning Bublitz's Ice Cream Parlor. Throughout her life she was able to utilize her wonderful baking skills. She baked at many local businesses, as well as creating memorable wedding cakes for many. Every year the family enjoyed the pies baked in great quantity for Thanksgiving, the Christmas cookies baked together as a family and the wonderful coffeecakes she shared. She was able to marry her baked goods with her lifelong love of sports by typically showing up to a Rockies or Avalanche game with treats for the athletes. She truly enjoyed the adventures that she had with her grandchildren that included heading to downtown Denver to favorite restaurants, shopping areas, sporting events and especially Elitches. Doris had the ability to enjoy life no matter her circumstance. She always made something special out of even the simplest of means. The family vacations on a shoestring, the quickly put together picnics, the camping trips, or just any family gathering for a meal were always adventures with plenty of laughter to be had by all. Doris took that enjoyment of laughter on the road with her youngest son, David, as he traveled for comedy engagements. She truly enjoyed this. She had a lifelong love of animals whether it was her pets, first one Skipper to last one Jasmine, or the wildlife that abounded in Colorado. Her children inherited her love of laughter, love of sports, enjoyment of the great outdoors and eating wonderful food. Thanks to the loving care given by her family, Doris was able to remain in her home until the last days of her life. Doris is survived by all of her children, Ken (Jody), Jim (Sharon), and David, all of Fort Collins, CO. Dale, Ed (Cindy), Nancy Menard (Michael), all of Loveland, CO and Mary Haigh (Phil) of Kokomo, Indiana. She treasured 10 grandchildren, Stephanie, Joe, Becky, Deeanna, Jack, Kristen, Timmy, Claudia, Heather, and Troy. She also had 8 great grandchildren, Andrew, Alex, Ashley, Alysha, Jackson, Jamesie, Faith, and Bryan. She is survived by her brother Bob Pape and wife Lorrie, sister in law Madeleine Pape, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her ex-husband, George, her parents, her beloved brothers Roger and Ron, her sister in law Shirley and grandson Mathew Haigh. There will be a viewing at Viegut Funeral Home on Sunday, March 9th from 2-5 pm.
