February 17, 2008
Catherine Warren, 94, formerly of Greeley, died Feb. 8 in long-term care at Kremmling Memorial Hospital in Kremmling. Catherine had been living in Kremmling since 2003.
Born Catherine Hansen on June 6, 1913, in Denver, she was a second generation Coloradoan. She was raised in Capital Hill in Denver, graduated from East Denver High School, and in 1934 graduated from the University of Denver with a degree in Economics.
In 1945 she married Frank Warren and they made their home in Greeley starting in 1947. The Warrens had one daughter, Prudence “Pooh” Bishop. Catherine was preceded in death by her husband and is survived by Pooh, her grandson, R. Warren Bishop, and her son-in-law, Ray Bishop, all of Summit County.
Catherine had lived in Greeley for 56 years before moving to Kremmling. She was active as a volunteer in that community before and after her 20 year career as executive secretary of Weld County United Way.
Catherine became an “ex-officio” member of the Summit County community coming up often to participate in the various activities and projects in which Pooh, Ray and Warren were involved at Copper Mountain, in Frisco, and at Frisco Elementary. Catherine loved the mountains and her time here.
A memorial lunch reception will be held on Sunday at the Copper Mountain Chapel at Copper Mountain. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Heart of the Mountains Hospice, P.O. Box 1093, Granby, CO 80446.
