Patricia “Patty” Ann Rutheford, 75, of Evans, Colorado departed this life on December 26, 2020.
Patty was born to Lee and Mabel (Cecil) Rutherford in Pierce, Colorado on February 23, 1945.
She grew up in the Evans area, graduating from Evans High School. Patty achieved an Associate’s Degree at Aims Community College in Greeley, Colorado and completed her Baccalaureate in Elementary Education at Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho.

Patricia attended Foursquare and Assembly of God Churches throughout her life. She remained strong in her belief and it sustained her through the dark days of her struggle with cancer. She looked forward to a brighter tomorrow.

Patty was devoted to family and loved family gatherings and celebrations.Patricia was preceded in death by her parents Lee and Mabel Rutheford.

She is survived by two siblings; a brother, Randy (Rita) Rutheford of Gilcrest, Colorado and a sister, Katherine (Bryce) Stalder of Blackfoot, Idaho. Patty doted on her five nieces and nephews; Davolyn Stalder (Jeannett Normine) of St. Helens, Oregon, Randy (Jennifer) Rutheford Jr. of Evans, Colorado, Michael (Pamela) Stalder of Buhl, Idaho, Amanda (Tony) Pierce of Severance, Colorado, and Rebecca Rutheford of Platteville, Colorado. She took particular delight in her 9 great nieces and nephews.

Children played a major role in Patty’s life. She loved teaching and freely shared success stories of the students she interacted with. Many children were blessed by her dedication throughout the years.

She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her. With her passing there is a void in our lives that cannot be filled but she will live on in our hearts with fond memories.

Patty’s Life Celebration will be held at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Adamson with Interment to follow at the Eaton Cemetery. Memorial gifts may be made to “American Cancer Society” in care of Adamson, 2000 47th Ave., Greeley, CO 80634. Friends may leave condolences at
