Lila Seele of Johnstown passed away Wednesday, September 11, 2019, at her home at the age of 92.

Lila was born May 3, 1927, to Jake & Bertha (Byerly) Reichert in a sod farm house in St. Francis, Kansas. The fourth of six children, her family moved to Loveland in 1934, during the depression years. She was the last survivor of the six siblings. She attended Loveland schools and graduated from Loveland High School in 1945.
Lila remembers picking cherries in the Loveland cherry orchards and working in the can loft at the cherry canning factory. She also rode the bus to Denver where she worked at the Rockmont Envelope Company.

Lila married Alvin “Al” Seele on December 13, 1949, in Cheyenne, WY. They moved to the farm one mile south of Johnstown, where they made their home for the next 50 years. There they raised their children, Kent and Kathy. Al passed away June 2, 2009; they would have celebrated 60 years of marriage that December.

Lila was a wonderful homemaker. She loved to bake and garden, and took great pride in her home and yard. She had beautiful flower gardens; her favorites were iris, glads, 4 o'clocks and sweet peas. She established many family traditions and Sunday afternoons were a favorite time spent in the shade of the old cottonwood tree. She had a great homemade ice cream recipe, which was always served on the 4th of July, with Al turning the crank and the granddaughters licking the churn.

Lila was a member of Faith Lutheran Church and the Ladies Guild, where she served in many capacities. She and Al were also long-time members of the Farm Bureau.

Her greatest joy was her family, especially her granddaughters and great-grandchildren. She babysat for them and taxied them to dance lessons and appointments. She enjoyed attending all of their dance recitals and sports events, logging many miles both in and out of state. On her outings, she would strike up a conversation with anyone, and always made new friends wherever she went. She had a thoughtful and caring spirit and will be greatly missed.

Special thanks to Tammy McClure, Olivia Aguilar, Kiersi Cross and Kari Wadsworth whose kindness and compassionate caregiving enabled Lila to remain in her own home.

Thanks to Lila’s Front Range Hospice team, Stephanie, Lucy, Hope, Nicole and Heather. Their kindness, compassion, and guidance through the last months were more than we could have ever imagined.

Lila is survived by her son Kent (Diana) Seele and daughter Kathy Seele; granddaughters Kendall (Josh) Robinson, Andrea (Marcus) Podtburg, and Erin (Mason) Marick; and great-grandchildren Clayton and Aiden Robinson, Sloane & Reece Podtburg and Ainsley Marick, all of Johnstown; sisters-in-law Helen Reichert of Pueblo and Pearl Reichert of Loveland; and brother-in-law Olin Seele of Johnstown. She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

Lila was preceded in death by her parents, husband Al, her brothers Ed Reichert and Rex Reichert, infant sister Betty Reichert, and sisters Shirley Cross and Lanie Fogleman.
