Anne Field, age 68 of Evergreen, died at 6:11 PM, Saturday, June 19, 2021, at St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood, Colorado after undergoing surgery to repair an aortic dissection. She was born January 17, 1953, in Detroit, Michigan, to Robert and Barbara Field. She married John Soukup on December 1, 2000, in Golden, Colorado.

Anne graduated from Cranbrook Kingswood High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and moved to the Denver area in the early 1970s.  She attended Metropolitan State University where she received a BA in Psychology and the University of Houston where she earned a Master's Degree in Clinical/Medical Social Work.  She moved to Evergreen in 2000 and resided there with her husband until her death.

Anne devoted her life to helping others.  She worked for 23 years as a psychotherapist in the areas of police and fire psychology at Nicoletti-Flater Associates in Lakewood, Colorado.  Anne specialized in grief therapy and touched the lives of countless people struggling with loss.  Even after retirement, Anne continued to mentor and supervise younger providers and those just starting out in the field.
 
Anne began her career in mental health as a psychiatric social worker at the Baylor College of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, and for hospitals in the Harris County Hospital District, in Houston, Texas. Prior to therapy work, Anne was a meeting planner for the American Animal Hospital Association in Lakewood, Colorado.
 
Anne was an avid sportswoman.  She liked cycling, skiing, snowshoeing, running, and in her younger years, she was an accomplished tennis player.

She loved the outdoors.  One of her greatest joys was hiking near her home with her husband and dogs.  She was a keen observer of wildlife and wildflowers, and she recognized and could make many bird calls. Some of Anne's close friends likened her to Snow White with all of the birds and animals she invited to her home through her elaborate system of birdfeeders.

Anne's pets were her passion and delight.  She leaves behind two dogs and four cats that were rescued and doted on.  Having rescued countless animals throughout her life, Anne was a stray dog or cat's best friend.

Anne's love of animals was matched only by her generosity, thoughtfulness, and loyalty as a friend.  She would do anything for those she loved and brought a bright light with her.  Anne will be remembered by her friends as a quick-witted, fun-loving woman that was always up for anything, especially if it involved ice cream, fancy clothes, or costumes.
 
Anne was an active member of the Evergreen Rotary Club, and she valued the many friendships she made there.   Her husband wishes to thank all of those who cared for her during her last year and is particularly grateful to the members of the Evergreen Rotary for the compassion and support they gave her.

On Wednesday, July 7th at 10 am, the Evergreen Rotary will host a Celebration of Life for Anne Field at the Evergreen Lakehouse. The celebration of life is open to her many friends to attend.

Memorial contributions may be made to Best Friends Animal Society, 5001 Angel Canyon Road, Kanab, Utah 84741-5000.

In loving memory of my dear friend (and ex-coworker). I will remember Anne for her wonderful sense of humor and laughter. She was such a bright light to my day. One funny memory is of her leaving a (screaming prank) hand mirror on the registration desk we worked at, just waiting for an unsuspecting registrant to pick it up along with their badges :) I will surely miss you Skippy! Love and condolences to John and the family.

I will always remember dear Anne for her vivacious smile and her generosity. At an Evergreen Rotary meeting, I made an announcement that clothes were needed for Jeffco Serving Kids and the next day Anne appeared at my door in Lakewood with a big bag of clothes. Her friendly manner and enthusiasm will be missed.
