Virginia Carol (Slocum) Kittel passed away on October 28, 2005, in Aurora, CO, after a long illness. Her devoted husband of 63 years, Dale, preceded her in death by five weeks. She was the mother of Janine Lesser, Shannon Jacobs, Brian Kittel, and Valerie Kittel; grandmother of Tracy Young (Lee), Stephen Kittel (Traci), David Kittel, and Dylan Schneider; great-grandmother of Deven Young and Bridget Kittel; and aunt of several nieces and nephews.

Born in St. John, WA, on January 30, 1923, Virginia grew up in Spokane and Ritzville, WA. She attended Eastern Washington College. She married her high school sweetheart on August 12, 1942. Twelve years later, with four children in tow, Virginia accompanied her mining

geologist husband across the country to a remote mining camp in NM for three years; then to Anaconda Millsite, near Grants, NM, where the children grew up; then on to Tucson, Salt Lake City, and Denver.

Wherever she lived, Virginia helped to make the neighborhood a better and more beautiful place. She was involved in and contributed significantly to each community, volunteering her time for several causes, and working part-time as a substitute teacher and nurse.

A passionate bridge player, Virginia belonged to several bridge clubs in Denver as well as The Woman's Auxiliary of AIME, Mile High Retired Officers Wives Club, Cherry Creek Woman's Club, and Senior 88 Choral Group. Blessed with a beautiful voice, she loved to sing and was a member of the choir at Parkview Congregational Church.

There will be a private graveside service on November 19. Memorials may be made to the Dale and Virginia Kittel Memorial Fund at Parkview Congregational Church, 12444 Parkview Dr., Aurora, CO 80111. Family members wish to express their deep appreciation for the exceptionally loving, skillful, and respectful care provided by the staff at the Colorado State and Veterans Nursing Home at Fitzsimons.
