Martha "Marty" Jean Morris Nolen died Feb. 22, 2015, in Delta. She was 87.
She and a twin sister were born in Grand Junction Dec. 21, 1927, to Emery Morris and Nelly McLaughlin.
She worked in accounting at several large construction firms. She was forced to retire when she lost her eyesight due to macular degeneration.
She enjoyed spending time with her family, going out to eat, and reading and listening to books in her later years.
She is survived by three children, Judy (Mark) Fairchild, John (Barb) Sanghosti and Bryanna (Lisa) Roberts; seven grandchildren; and many great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by three sisters, Helen, Katherine, and her twin, Mary.
A memorial service was held Aug. 8 at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Ouray, where she was laid to rest next to her sister Helen.
Taylor Funeral Service and Crematory is handling the arrangements.
The aquatics area at Bill Heddles Recreation Center continues to be closed as staff awaits the arrival of new lighting equipment and wiring.
"We are moving forward on this repair as fast as supplies will allow us to," said recreation director Wilma Erven.
