Lila May Craig died May 9, 2009, in Yuma, Ariz. A graveside memorial will be held May 22, 2009, at 11 a.m. at the Yampa Valley Cemetery.

Lila was born in Colorado Springs to Robert Reid and Florence Carol Crossan of Yampa. She married Leonard Craig on Oct. 12, 1936, then moved to Grand Junction where they raised their children. For more than 45 years she was a resident of Glenwood Springs, best known for her friendly face and 20 years of service at Center Drug (now Rite Aid).

After retirement, she started dividing her time between Glenwood Springs and Yuma, Ariz. For the past two years, she lived with her great-granddaughter, Camie (Tim) Walker, in Silt, enjoying her twilight years with her great-great-grandchildren.

Lila was preceded in death by her husband; her sister, Alice Hill; and her oldest son, Robert Craig of Tucumseh, Okla.

Surviving her are her daughter, Donna (Art) Smith formerly of Glenwood Springs now living in Grand Junction; her son, Charles Craig of Yuma, Ariz.; 12 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and 10 great-great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations payable to the Colorado Rockies Make a Wish Foundation for the Lila Craig Memorial, 7951 E. Maplewood #126, Greenwood Village, CO 80111.
