Barnes, Clay - Longont  
Clay Alexander Barnes, 95, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 in Homestead, Florida. Clay Barnes was born on October 5, 1919, in Longmont, Colorado, the youngest child of Elmer and Pearl Barnes. He grew up with his older brother, Gerald, and older sister Fern (Carlton) there and attended Longmont High School, graduating in 1938. While there, he actively participated in many activities including football, track, student senate, international relations club and vice president of the student body. His ambition and drive to excel would be a character trademark and earned him the admiration and respect of many he came into contact with throughout his long and memorable life. Upon graduation he joined the Colorado National Guard and served there as it was incorporated as part of the 45th Infantry Division, traveling to Fort Drum, NY for training. While there he met his future wife, Mae Katherine Mosher, a secretary to the editor of a local newspaper. He held the rank of captain when his unit was deployed overseas to North Africa, serving bravely and honorably with them as they fought through Sicily, Anzio, Italy, France and ultimately liberating the notorious Dachau concentration camp in Germany. He demonstrated his courage early on by almost single-handedly capturing eight German soldiers trying to surround his unit at Anzio, earning him the Silver Star. He was awarded the Purple Heart some months later when severely wounded by a mine, which was initially reported to his family and fiancé that he had been killed in action. After the war he retired as an Army Major, pursuing his civilian life by marrying and starting a family while attending Harvard College and working a part time job simultaneously. He graduated in 1949 and started his long and successful career spanning over three decades in the rent a car industry, relocating through New York, Michigan, New Jersey with each promotion and finally settling in Miami, Florida, where he could finally pursue his true passion. From a young age he always had a passion for fishing, learning how to fish the lakes and streams back home to fishing the reefs and deeper waters of the Atlantic Ocean. For fifteen years he would fish the waters off Key West from November to April, then drive out west to catch trout in the Colorado and Montana streams, never tiring of it. He was truly in his element when he held a fishing pole in his hand.

Bove, Alice (Schreiter) - Boulder  
Heaven received a precious angel on January 22nd. Alice Schreiter was born to Mary Varra and Otto Schreiter in Boulder July 7, 1933. Alice was raised in Louisville, CO and graduated from Louisville High School in 1951. Alice met Johnny Bove whom she married and shared 33 years of her life with. They divorced in 1987. Alice is survived by her brother Curt (Dolly) and sister Dorothy (Herb). Alice and Johnny had 3 children; Johanna, Lance (Denise) and Jari (Joe). Alice was most proud of her 5 beautiful grandchildren; Kali, Kelsi, Ashleigh (Gary), Niccole, Justin (Dina), her pride and joy-great grandbaby Luca and another great grandbaby on the way. Alice loved her family and had more true friends that one can imagine. She was loved by all that knew her. Her giving spirit and infectious smile melted our hearts. Alice never met a person who was not positively impacted by her selfless generosity. She had a great gift of gently touching every life she came in contact with. Alice was an astute business woman, creative interior designer and gracious hostess to all. She loved convertibles, sunshine, traveling, beaches, Danielle Steel books and taking her grandkids shopping from the time they could walk. Alice's travels took her to Greece, Israel, Costa Rica, Panama, Ixtapa, and cruises to Alaska and Panama canal just to name a few. She loved to explore and experience different cultures. From her grandchildren: "Nani was the most beautiful person ever who inspired us and taught us what it meant to love selflessly. She taught us how to wear fur, get eyeliner tattooed on, make pizzelles, never take anything too seriously and how to rock "too-big-for-your-face" sunglasses. She was a travel partner, style assistant, professional spoiler and shopper, sub-par chef, infomercial extraordinaire...but most importantly Nani was our Grandma. She will be missed beyond words. Dance with the Angels, Nani!" A celebration of Alice's full life will be held on January 31st at 2835 Prince Circle, Erie CO from 11:00AM to 4:00PM. In lieu of flowers the family requests that contributions be made to The American Heart Association.

Freudenburg, Phyllis - Longmont  
Phyllis Freudenburg departed this life on January 23, 2015, due to complications of Parkinson's Disease and Emphysema. Phyllis would want you to know that she did not "battle" these infirmities. Rather, she lived life as she darn well pleased, and dared them to catch her. Phyllis was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, on May 9, 1951, to Merle C. and Virginia (Farr) Hamilton. She spent her entire childhood in Lincoln, although she enjoyed frequent summers in Longmont, where she visited her aunt and uncle, Marge and Max Lewellen. Little did she realize that she would eventually make her home in Longmont, where she lived for almost 40 years. She attended the University of Nebraska, first in Lincoln and then at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. She received her Bachelor's degree as a registered nurse, and even better she met her husband, Jim at the Medical Center where he was a medical student. They were married on August 19, 1972. She was a proud "Husker", and even though she could never be described as a rabid football fan, she was always excited to don a red jersey and cheer on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. After graduation, she taught a course in medical-surgical nursing at Methodist Hospital in Omaha. After Jim's graduation and residency training, they moved to Longmont in 1977 where he was employed as a Family Practice Physician at the Longmont Clinic until his retirement just a week ago. She worked briefly for McNeil Pharmaceuticals after their move to Longmont, but after the birth of their daughter, Kirsten, in 1978 she threw herself into a new career, that of devoted wife and mother. Phyllis was an artist above all else. She could sew a Halloween costume that would be the envy of the neighborhood, or write a note from the Tooth Fairy complete with a picture of the little fairy on request. It was this love of art and eye for design that inspired her to start her own company, Rooms Forethought. She was immensely successful for more than 20 years, decorating both commercial spaces and residential homes. Later in life, after Kirsten had gone on to college and a teaching career, she combined her love of design and her powerful teaching skills. She taught interior design courses at Westwood College in Denver. She loved teaching her students everything from color theory to the art of making a chair out of a soda can. The student surveys ranked her as the most-liked instructor at the college, and she enjoyed her time there until the daily travel to Denver became too much of an effort. Phyllis enjoyed travel and had just returned from a family trip to the island of Kauai over the Christmas Holiday. Unfortunately she fell ill on her return to Longmont. Happily, she had been able to travel the world in earlier years with Jim and Kirsten. She is survived by her husband, Jim and her daughter, Kirsten Bayani, as well as their son-in-law Bobby and grandson Sam. In 2013 she and Jim welcomed their grandson, Sam and she embraced her last career as doting ("I will not be grandmother") 'Bunny' to him. Kirsten's husband Bobby Bayani has been an integral part of the family since their first Christmas together in 2007. She is also survived by countless friends who will never forget her acerbic sense of humor and her wonderful smile. Ruh in Gott, dear sweet Phyllis, until we see you again. A memorial service will be held at 11:00am, Friday, January 30, 2015 at First Evangelical Lutheran Church. Memorial contributions may be made to the Longmont Humane Society. Cremation entrusted to Ahlberg Funeral Chapel and Crematory. Visit www.ahlbergfuneralchapel.com to share condolences.
