Estelle Woodard McGarvey - August 24, 1936 - February 08, 2024

Departed: 02/08/2024 (Colorado Springs)
Obituary Preview: Estelle McGarvey, 87, beloved wife of William, the love of her life for over 65 years, passed away on February 8, 2024. Estelle’s world revolved around her faith, husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Estelle was a follower of Jesus. Estelle’s faith was the foundation of her life. Estelle loved to attend church and sing gospel hymns.
Dedicated and loving mother to Lisa, Scott (Winnie), Timothy (Julie), and Steve (Noelle). Proud Grandmother of David, Jeremiah, Samantha, Nathaniel, Jessica, Tayler, Danielle, Steve, and Matt. Great-grandfather to many, including Logan, Connor, and Jaxon.
Estelle is preceded in death by her husband William; her parents Ross and Necie; and her brother Paul. Estelle loved to share stories about growing up in the South. The daughter of a farmer (who was a finishing carpenter by trade), Estelle could share for hours about her childhood adventures. Be it a story about riding pigs with her brother, being sent outside to catch the chickens to wash their feet, eating too much food at her Aunt Callie’s house, or grandmas who chewed and spat, Estelle loved to reminisce.
Estelle loved almost all vegetables but didn’t care for okra at all! Estelle would be happiest with a plate full of fresh vegetables and no meat. Estelle loved to play card and board games. A vicious Gin Rummy player, Estelle would laugh with glee when she unloaded a handful of cards in a single swoop. Later in life, Estelle developed a passion for the card game “Cheat” and would tilt her head to the left, grin, and bat her eyelashes while engaging in card combat.
Estelle lived to spend time with her family. She was happiest when she could cook, garden, play games, or work a puzzle with her grandchildren or children.
In her final years, Estelle developed vascular dementia, and her memory and capabilities began to fade. However, she remained firm in her faith in Jesus and her undying love of Bill. Estelle and Bill often sang “You Are My Sunshine” to each other, both in good times and bad. Estelle’s children and grandchildren sang the song to her and together with her when Bill could no longer do so.
Family surrounded Estelle with love, singing, and stories during her last days.
Estelle leaves behind children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren who adored her. Our lives will be less attractive and colorful without her presence.

Garrett Scott Ives - February 27, 1979 - February 06, 2024

Departed: 02/06/2024 (Colorado Springs)
Obituary Preview: Earth displays a paint splashed canvas-- each flower unique, the dance they sway in
softest breeze.
One moment in time. All merely a sigh beneath bright sky, up on high golden son slips quickly without warning, such--
the beauty of every morning. I pause—breathless, amazed and dazed, wondering why glorious blessings
pass quickly by. I hear your sigh in every flower just one more moment,
one more hour. Earth the color of your eyes, it’s no surprise you’re the dance of every flower
before my eyes.
Garrett Scott Ives passed away on February 6th, 2024.
Garrett was born at Swedish Hospital on February 27th, 1979. He was not married and had no children, but brought joy to all of those around him. He was self-described as a, “Poet, Holy Man, Philosopher, Artist, Musician, Avid Outdoorsman, and Web Developer,” and he lived his life accordingly. Garrett’s passion towards the things he loved was admirable, and he incited greatness in all of those around him. He always left everyone’s lives a little better just by meeting and spending time with them.
Garrett was one of a few who could equally write code and play music, or both write poems and rebuild something complicated. He loved Taos, in New Mexico. He loved the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. There was no building, house, or apartment large enough to house his personality.
Garrett is survived by his father, Ken; his Mother Lyn; his brother Carl; and his sister in-law Sarah. He is also survived by two nieces, Genesis and Jade; and two nephews, Gabriel and Turner.
A celebration of life will be scheduled and shared with his hosts of family and friends.

Elinor Margaret McGarry - June 25, 1939 - January 20, 2024

Departed: 01/20/2024 (Colorado Springs)
Obituary Preview: Elinor Margaret (Graham) McGarry, a remarkable woman of faith, love, and science, passed away peacefully on January 20, 2024. She leaves behind a legacy of dedication, compassion, and cherished memories that will forever live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
Elinor was born in Scotland on June 25, 1939, to her loving parents, Edward and Jean Graham. Raised in the vibrant city of Glasgow alongside her younger brother, Edward, she developed a passion for knowledge and a curious mind from an early age. This passion led her to pursue a Ph.D. in chemistry, which laid the foundation for her career as a forensic chemist and criminalist.
Elinor's talents as a chemist caught the attention of the Toronto Police Laboratory in Canada. Relocating from her homeland to embark on this new chapter, she intended to stay only briefly. Fate had other plans for her when she met John (Jack) McGarry, an officer in the US Air Force. They were married in 1968.
Elinor and Jack's adventurous spirits took them on a journey around the world, living in various places, including Canada, Australia, and numerous locations across the United States. Amid their travels, they were blessed with two children who brought immeasurable pride. Their son, Sean, was born in Del Rio, TX, and their daughter, Jeannette, came into the world in British Columbia, Canada.
In 1987, Elinor returned to her true passion for forensic science, joining the El Paso County Sheriff's lab as a crime scene investigator and crime lab technician in Colorado Springs, CO. Her dedication to her work and commitment to seeking justice made her an invaluable asset to her colleagues and the community she served.
Beyond her illustrious career, Elinor was deeply devoted to her Catholic faith. She found comfort, strength, and purpose in her beliefs, and she selflessly volunteered for her church and various local non-profit organizations, positively impacting countless lives.
Of all the roles she embraced throughout her life, Elinor found her greatest joy in being a loving grandmother to her cherished grandchildren: Aidan McGarry, Malia McGarry, and Elise Riendeau. Her love for them knew no bounds, and her presence in their lives was a source of immeasurable love and support.
Predeceased by her father, Edward Graham, and mother, Jean Graham, Elinor is survived by her husband, John McGarry of Colorado Springs, CO, son Sean (Marie) of Springfield, VA, daughter Jeannette (Christopher Riendeau) of Manchester, NH, grandson, Aidan McGarry of Springfield, VA, granddaughters Malia McGarry of Springfield, VA, and Elise Riendeau of Manchester, NH, brother Edward Graham (Marie) of Dunoon, Scotland, and many loving nieces and nephews around the world.
A devoted wife, loving mother, faithful Catholic, and cherished grandmother, Elinor McGarry will be deeply missed. May her soul find eternal peace and her memory forever be a blessing to all.
A Funeral Mass will be held at 2:00 pm on February 6, 2024 at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, 9 El Pomar Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80906 with a reception immediately following. The funeral will be live streamed at A private burial will follow on February 7, 2024 at Pikes Peak National Cemetery.

Kylie was born on her Juh Juh’s birthday, August 14, 2017 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Jessica and EJ Calloway. The moment they laid eyes on her they fell in love with her. Kylie had two amazing older siblings, Kameron (12) and Kaylen (10) that were always by her side. They advocated for her every chance they got.

Popping them and knocking over blocks were two of her favorite things to do. Kylie always loved to be read to by her big sister, Kaylen, and she enjoyed playing fighting and licking her brother, Kameron.

Mary Ann Maez - August 01, 1932 - January 15, 2024

Departed: 01/15/2024 (Colorado Springs)
Obituary Preview: Mary Ann was born deaf in Las Animas, Colorado. As she was growing up in La Junta, Colorado, someone discovered that she was deaf, and invited her to attend the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind. From there her life blossomed. She gained many friends and ultimately met her future husband Juan Maez.
As a young woman she enjoyed socializing with her friends and dancing; particularly the jitterbug. As she got older she joined various deaf clubs; got married, and raised a family. She enjoyed watching different types of sports. She loved, however, watching the Denver Broncos play. She also enjoyed cooking, whether it was for a crowd or her family. Tortillas were made on a regular basis, tamales were made every year, and she made a mean red chili.
Having being born deaf in 1932 was definitely a challenge within itself. It did not stop her from overcoming many challenges that went along with that. She worked hard every day to overcome those challenges; whether it was in the work place or at home. Mary Ann was ultimately a happy person. She was always smiling, had a silly laugh, and had a bit of sass that made her who she was.
Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Juan Maez.
She was survived by her Children, Tom Maez, Rita Maez, and Jeanine Martinez (Danny); as well as her grandchildren, Sophia Maez, Tommy Maez, Carmella Maez, Kendra Monaghan (Josh), Jasmine Keebler, Christina Martinez, Vincent Martinez; and great-grandchildren, Louie Jr. Ornelas, Zion Ornelas, Lydia Monaghan, and Francis Monaghan.
