Mary Elizabeth Parcheta was recovering from a stroke last summer, and took great pride in resuming her winter passion of skiing at her Colorado home this past winter. She suffered a fall in January and courageously fought to recover, yet on March 8th made the decision to spend the rest of eternity at her “feels like” age, decades younger than her actual years spent on this earth.

Mary lived her life to the fullest and spent every day in search of new athletic challenges, volunteering for many community organizations, having fun with friends, spending time with her family, and bragging about her granddaughters. As an Iowa farm girl she started in nursing school and later adventured to California to pursue a career with Autonetics who contracted with NASA and the space program. She met her life love Jack on a ski trip for singles, and the rest just evolved for both of them.
