Sarah Williams Volf (March 22, 1975 — April 6, 2017)

Sarah Williams Volf, dedicated daughter, wife, mother and friend, passed away on Thursday, April 6th, 2017, with her husband by her side. Born in Wrexham, Wales on March 22, 1975, to Geoff and Margaret Williams, Sarah traveled the world at a young age, bringing athletics to children from London to Bosnia. In 2001, Sarah moved to Colorado to start a legacy of devotion to America’s wounded veterans at Challenge Aspen where she started the Challenge Aspen Military Operations (CAMO) program.

Sarah’s love for the outdoors and recreation was shared with her many friends in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. There wasn’t a snowy uphill or dusty downhill that Sarah didn’t complete — these mountains are, and will always be, Sarah’s mountains. Sarah’s warm smile, unending joy and contagious positive attitude has forever changed the lives of many who feel blessed to have known her.

A devoted wife to Mark and mother to Samuel Lloyd Volf, who blessed Sarah & Mark’s life on January 21st, 2009, Sarah was the first one to volunteer for school outings, soccer, hikes, biking and on-snow adventures that Samuel and his friends will always treasure.

Sarah is survived by her mother and father, Margaret & Geoff Williams, Aunty Arl and Uncle Dave and her cousin, Lynne Williams, Kelly, Pam (Volf), Ashton and Trenton Steckelberg, father-in law, Maylon Volf and her husband and son, Mark & Samuel Volf. A memorial will be held on May 20th, 2017, at 12:00pm at the Aspen Chapel in Aspen, Colorado. A memorial fund has been established at all Alpine Banks in Colorado — the Sarah Volf Memorial Fund. In addition, online donations can be made at Mark and Samuel have experienced an outpouring of love and support, from Sarah’s family and friends, and wish to share their humble gratitude for the dinners, notes, visits and calls of sympathy and support.
