Alice M. Nordloh, 1950-2018
Alice Marie Nordloh of Granby slipped away quietly on July 7, 2018, at Middle Park Medical Center – Kremmling, with her husband, Gary, and a few of her friends by her side.
Alice Marie Lockhart was born in Steamboat Springs to Dorothy and Jack Lockhart on July 6, 1950. She attended grade school in Grand Lake, and graduated from Middle Park High School in Granby. She got a degree at Mesa College in Grand Junction before marrying her lifelong partner, Gary Lee Nordloh, on Jan. 23, 1971 in Grand Lake.
During Gary’s career in the oil and gas industry, the Nordlohs lived in Denver, various towns in Wyoming, and Salt Lake City, before returning to Grand County and Snider Ranch in Granby. Alice loved cooking and entertaining and was as adept at hosting a dinner party for CEOs as she was driving a tractor during haying season and then serving dinner in her blue jeans at a picnic table on the ranch.
Alice was a member of PEO, an avid historian and scrap booker, and was active in preserving Grand County through Land Trust. When Alice was asked recently what she’d like to be remembered for, she said, “I always strived to be a good friend”. Alice is survived by her spouse, Gary, who never left her side during this ten month battle with pancreatic cancer, and countless friends who think she exceeded that goal.
At the end, Alice requested that the staff of Kremmling Memorial Hospital be recognized in her obituary. She said she wanted all those reading this to know how comfortable and safe they made her feel and how much she appreciated them.
There will be a service to celebrate Alice on Tuesday, July 17, at 10 a.m. at Trinity Church in the Pines in Grand Lake—the same church where she and Gary got married 47 years ago. Interment at Grand Lake Cemetery will be private. There will be a reception from 1 to 3 p.m. at Stillwater Grill on Highway 40 between Grand Lake and Granby.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a contribution to Middle Park Medical Foundation—Alice’s Fund, PO Box 399, Kremmling, CO, 80459. The fund will be used for improvements of Kremmling Memorial Hospital.
