Eva Anna Warpecha

Eva Anna Warpecha, aged 53, died peacefully early Monday morning, Sept. 8, 2014. She passed away at home at her residence in Breckenridge after years of battling cancer. Eva was born on June 28, 1961, in Nowy Targ, Poland.

In 1982 she married the love of her life Lester Warpecha, and together they moved to the U.S. in 1983 in hopes of a better life and starting a family.

Eva, Lester and their daughters, Isabel and Michelle, lived in Chicago, Illinois, until 1998 where they then moved to Summit County. Eva always loved the mountains because it reminded her of her home back in Poland. In Summit County, Eva spent her time owning and operating the Alpine Inn in Frisco with her husband and help of family. Apart from the mountains, Eva found that the warmer climate of California also called her name. She enjoyed vacationing and visiting the family condo in Newport Beach with the dream of eventually retiring there. Her passionate pastimes included bike riding, taking walks, cooking traditional Polish food and reading all the Danielle Steel books she could. She always devoted much time to family including her most precious and only grand child, Cayden.

Eva will always be remembered by family and friends as a hardworking, compassionate and thoughtful wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. She is survived by her husband, Lester, daughters, Isabel and Michelle, siblings, Ala, Jola and Peter, and parents, Kasey and Helena.

The family wishes to thank all of those who supported and cared for Eva in her last illness. A rosary ceremony will be held on Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014, at Our Lady of Peace Church in Silverthorne at 7 p.m. The funeral service will be held on Friday, Sept. 12, 2014, at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Wheat Ridge at 2 p.m.

Memorial donations and gifts may be sent to the Warpecha Family, PO Box 4473, Frisco, CO 80443 or to the family’s residence at 219 Glen Eagle Loop, Breckenridge, Colorado, 80424.
