Lovingly known as Joe, died May 13, 2010, following a decade long battle with Alzheimer's. She was born in Salt Lake City to Joseph R. and Grace James Webb on Nov. 4, 1932 and lived in Midvale, UT until marrying Melvin Larry Mickelsen of Crescent, UT in 1957. She received her BA in 1956 from the University of Utah with a major in History and minor in Political Science, after living for two years in Heidelberg, Germany where her insatiable love of travel ignited. An outdoor enthusiast, she rafted the Colorado River before Lake Powell. Joe went on to teach Civics and English in Midvale, Baltimore and Colorado Springs. She was a Girl Scout leader and helped organize a 4H horse club in Parker, CO. She loved dogs, wildflowers, horses and wolves, hiking, camping, intelligent conversation and debate, civics, a good laugh, and firmly believed in community activism and service. She was a life-long member of the League of Women Voters, serving on the Colorado State Board and organizing a chapter in Parker. Joe also served on the Douglas County Planning Commission, co-founded the Douglas Land Conservancy, and was the Douglas County appointee to the inaugural Scientific and Cultural Facilities District Board. She delighted in being a lefty and no matter what she did, Joe never stopped teaching. Her kindness, wit, and laughter are much missed by her friends and family, husband Mel (Larry) Mickelsen, daughters Cary Mickelsen and Jill Lakovich Mickelsen, grandson Joseph Milan Lakovich, and sisters Karen Garrett and Galen Mickelsen. A celebration of Joe's life and spirit will be held at an open house in Parker at 6784 Chalet Cir. on June 5th, 1-3:30 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Nature Conservancy, 800-680-6860, memorial file #2328115, The Sierra Club, 415-977-5500 www.sierraclub .org, or The Alzheimer's Association , www.alz.org.
