Jean L. Sobieck

Jean L. Sobieck of Montrose, former resident of Glenwood Springs, passed away on August 30, 2015, as a result of complications from her brave struggle against brain cancer.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents and her sister Barbara. She is survived by her husband, Ron, her sisters Elaine McBride of Casper, Wyoming, and Carol Ann Santoro of Concord, California, and seven nieces and nephews.

She was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1952 and moved to Colorado in 1972. From a young age Jean was a high-energy person who loved art, cooking and being outdoors. Jean married her partner for life and soul mate, Ron, in 1987.

Those who knew her will remember her smile, warmth, energy, and love for family and friends. All who remember Jean are asked to celebrate her life in their own way. Raising a glass of wine in her memory would be most appropriate.

A Memorial Service will be held Sunday, September 20, at 2 P.M. at the Ute Indian Museum in Montrose. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to HopeWest Hospice, in memory of Jean, at P.O. Box 1804, Montrose, CO 81402.
