Aurora, CO

Lynelle Ann Graham (Dauenbaugh), beloved mother, sister, and friend passed away, unexpectedly, on February 25, 2024, in Aurora, Colorado. She was born April 29, 1965, in Deer River Minnesota, to Wilma Jean Dauenbaugh(Cole) and Pierre Ronald Dauenbaugh. After the loss of her father from mental illness, Wilma and her two young daughters moved to Burlington, Colorado to live with their great uncle, Clarence Cole. As a young woman, Lynelle had a passion for helping others and bringing joy to those around her. She would light up the room with her fun spirit. Despite the many challenges she endured in life, she loved people, making them laugh with her fun sense of humor. She found joy and passion as a caregiver where she became a Certified Nursing Assistant and worked for decades taking care of others. Raising three children in Burlington - Larissa Lynn Viner (Skrdlant), Jared Michael Cole (Macias) and Alisha Ann Conway (Stevison) - was both Lynelles' greatest joy and challenge. Though money was often tight, she always made sure her kids had what they needed. She could stretch a dollar further than anyone else, preparing delicious and creative meals on a shoestring budget. Lynelle was unwavering in her devotion to her family, becoming her brother Ron’s primary caregiver in 2010 until his death in 2018. She loved traveling to and visiting Jamaica, she even married 3 men from there. Above all, her grandchildren were the light of her life. Being a grandma "Nell" was her greatest achievement and she was so proud of each one of them; Olena Viner, Jamison Viner, Jai’Ceon Stevison, Ja’Niylah Conway, and Jzaden Conway. She is preceded in death with her mother and father, a sister Cheryl Marie Bushey, brother Ronald Eugene Dauenbaugh, Great Uncle Clarence Cole. She is survived by her Sister Janet Wylie (Dauenbaugh), Daughters Larissa and Alisha, Son Jared and all of her grandchildren who will miss her loving nature. "You never said I’m leaving, you never said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knew why. A million times we needed you, a million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place that no one could ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God took you home." Author Unknown. She was very old fashioned, and believed strongly, everyone needs a funeral service. In Lieu of flowers Memorial contributions may be designated to the Lynelle Graham Memorial Fund and may be left at the services or mailed to Koons-Russell Funeral Home, 211 N. Main Ave., Goodland, KS 67735.

"With heavy hearts, we bid farewell to our cherished Sonny whose love and warmth touched the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know him. Sonny, our beloved husband, father, grandpa, and friend transitioned peacefully from this world on February 15th, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love, kindness, and cherished memories. Sonny was not only a loving spouse but also a cherished confidant and best friend to his beloved wife Linda or Negra as he would often call her. Though he may be gone from Linda’s sight, the bond he shared with her and the memories they created together will remain eternally cherished. Born on October 22nd, 1949, in New Mexico, Sonny became part of our family after experiencing many hardships in life. He quickly became a cherished father figure to his beloved bonus children. His unwavering devotion to his family was evident in every action and word. As our bonus dad, he was a source of endless support and encouragement. His guidance and wisdom served as a compass, guiding his children through life\u0027s challenges and triumphs. Sonny had a special gift for making every moment memorable. Whether it was through his sense of humor, his comforting encouragement, or his heartwarming stories, he had a way of making everyone feel valued and loved. His presence brought joy and comfort to our family. His gentle spirit and genuine interest in others made spending time with him truly special. As a grandpa, Sonny found pure joy in the laughter and happiness of his grandchildren. Anabell, Tristan, Amani, Abby, and Gio shared a special bond with Grandpa Sonny and they were his pride and joy. He was their biggest cheerleader, always ready with a hug, a smile and a piece of candy to brighten their day. His love knew no bounds, and his grandchildren will forever cherish the moments spent in his company, learning from his wisdom and experiencing his unconditional love. Beyond his role as a devoted family man, Sonny was admired and respected by all who knew him. His integrity, compassion, and generosity touched the lives of countless individuals. Whether lending a helping hand or offering words of encouragement he embodied the true essence of kindness and empathy. Though we mourn the loss of Sonny in our lives, we take solace in the profound impact he had on each of us. His legacy of love and compassion will continue to inspire and uplift us in the days ahead. As we fondly remember his gentle spirit and unwavering love, we find comfort in knowing that his memory will forever live on in our hearts.

"With profound sorrow, we announce the passing of Tina Christy Swan, a beloved mother, grandmother, and friend. Born on September 2, 1977, in Denver, CO, Tina departed from us far too soon on February 16, 2024. As we mourn her loss, we take comfort in celebrating the vibrant, joyful life she led and the immeasurable love she shared. Tina was a radiant beacon of love, kindness, and creativity. Her passion for her family was evident in every facet of her life. She cherished time spent with her children, Ayana Lopez and Domonic Swan, and reveled in the joy and wonder of her grandchildren. Her dogs, Bambi and Chloe, were beloved companions and brought her endless joy. Tina had an innate ability to create beauty, an attribute that shone brightly when she crafted stunning pieces of jewelry, transforming ordinary materials into extraordinary treasures. Her nurturing spirit, coupled with her creative talents, made her an extraordinary mother and an inspiring role model. As the quote by Maya Angelou beautifully encapsulates, \u0026quot;My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style,\u0026quot; Tina lived her life full of passion and with her unique style. Tina\u0027s magnetic personality, boundless compassion, and unyielding love have left an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of knowing her. She lived her life with a vivacious spirit and an open heart, always ready to lend a hand or offer a comforting word. Despite being separated, her husband, Daniel Lopez, also survives her. She is preceded in death by her parents, Lydia Gallegos and Michael Swan, who we trust were there to welcome her with open arms into eternal rest. We invite you to share your fondest memories of Tina on her memorial page, as well as any photos you may have that capture the spirit of this extraordinary woman. Your stories and pictures will serve as a testament to her life and the impact she had on those around her. As we navigate this time of sorrow, let\u0027s remember and celebrate Tina for the loving and remarkable woman she was."

David Douglas O’Reilly

Mar 14, 1943 - Feb 16, 2024

location-icon

Aurora, CO

David Douglas O’Reilly was born on March 14, 1943, the eighth and final child of Loretta Marie Castonguay and William Patrick O’Reilly, in Oakland, Maine. As the youngest of the flock, he enjoyed the (at times tough) love and protection bestowed on him by his brothers and sisters. He passed at nearly 81 years old on February 16, 2024, in Aurora, Colorado during a snow and ice storm he would not have enjoyed. He is predeceased by his parents; siblings John, William Jr., Mary “Betty” (Metcalf), Arthur, Charles, and Katherine; and beloved nephew Michael Goodridge. He is survived by his sister, Georgia (Goodridge); his children, Justin and Jamie (Chris Vasquez); former wife, Mary (Kinnison); and nieces and nephews Kimberly (Russell), Cynthia Goodridge, Bill Goodridge, Mary (Altofer), Michael O’Reilly, Carole (Yoder), Kathleen (Zetune), Syndy (Solivan), Tanya (Wise), Jennifer (White), and Jeremiah Johnson. Dave stayed along the east coast in his youth. He met his future wife, Mary, by chance, as she was from Colorado and ended up in Connecticut after a road trip. She stayed there and worked in a woolen mill, eventually moving in with a friend in Stafford Springs, who happened to be Dave’s neighbor. After dating for a couple of years, they got married in Sedalia, Colorado, and after returning to Connecticut for a time, they moved permanently to Colorado. They lived in various places, including Lake George, Aurora, and Denver, and finally settled in Commerce City, where they purchased their first home. Not content to stagnate in a single industry, Dave tried many careers in his life. He proudly worked for his brother, John, at his O’Reilly Shell Station in Oakland, Maine, as a youth. He worked at McCallan’s Auto Parts, AMF Cuno, and Milton Bradley, among other places, while still out east. In Colorado, Dave worked as a truck driver for the now-defunct Interstate Motor Lines, as a security guard at Stapleton International Airport, and retired as a foreman at Wright & McGill (Eagle Claw Fishing Tackle Co.). Following a few years of retirement, he worked as a tutor to persons with disabilities at the Community College of Denver while earning an associate degree in mathematics and a Bachelor of Arts in History, eventually becoming a Mathematics Professor at CCD. He retired for good in 2011, even though he really didn’t want to. Dave was an urban-dwelling outdoorsman with varied interests. While on the east coast, he taught children how to enjoy and survive in the wilderness as a Scoutmaster in the Boy Scouts – a passion that he continued in a different troop in Colorado. He spent a lot of time camping, fishing, and hunting all over the state with friends and his children. Dave was also a sensei at a karate dojo for a time in his younger years. Dave the craftsman enjoyed creative projects: he made his own Osage orange long bow, arrows, and a deer hide quiver to go with them; he made wooden swords for his children and their friends; he built, and maintained for years, a miniature Boot Hill Cemetery, complete with funny epitaphs and a tiny fence; he customized the inside of his van in order to use it as a camper; and many more creative projects strewn about his life. Dave was known for his unique style of fashion. He had a flair for wearing camouflage prints, plaids, fringed leather jackets, and prints of nature images – his favorite shirt for a time had a very realistic rattlesnake on it that spooked one coworker at CCD. He loved Irish sweaters, cardigans, and Celtic jewelry. Other days, he favored Broncos, Avalanche, Nuggets, or Rockies jerseys and comfortable shorts. He had an array of hats that impressed: ballcaps of all his favorite teams and businesses, Stetsons, boonies, and ushankas (one had accidentally been set afire!). Sometimes he mixed pieces that didn’t quite go together, but rather than coming off as goofy, his outfits showcased his personality and highlighted him in a crowd. In true Dave form, he decided in 1993 to build up his small home, tripling the existing structure in size and finally getting the concrete driveway he’d wanted for a long time. After doggedly battling the city over permits and plans, construction began in 1994, with friends, his children, and neighborhood teens helping along the way. The finishing touches were completed in 1996. Dave’s benevolence preceded him. He freely gave of his time to the children in his family and his friends’ families, often taking them on excursions to the outdoors, restaurants, amusement parks, and to movies. He loved to dress up as Santa Claus, volunteering during Christmases to the joy of many kids, even appearing at a Christmas event for Governor Lamb at the Capitol and in a commercial for the old Aurora Mall. He was active in his church communities, volunteering at outreach events at the Nazarene church he attended in the 1990s, and becoming heavily involved in the Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus when he became a member at Our Lady Mother of the Church in Commerce City. As a Knight and Church member, he spent many happy days helping with the food bank, breakfasts and fish frys, maintenance, installing monuments, donning his regalia and honoring other Knights, and fundraising for the community. He served terms as Grand Knight and District Deputy. There were many instances over the years in which Dave helped those in need with money or groceries, no matter if he was financially well off. In one case, he fed and clothed the children of a neighbor for months after discovering their parents neglected them. He kept a watchful eye on the kids until authorities stepped in. Dave had many meaningful friendships in his life. He made some of his most cherished friends while working at Wright & McGill, spending time with them and their families with his own family in tow. There were many wonderful barbecues, birthday parties, and nights out at the drive-in. He was loyal to his friends, even sitting at the bedside of his long-time friend, Ralph Edwards, as he passed away. He met another long-time friend, Jeff Martinez, while volunteering at Our Lady Mother of the Church. They have been inseparable since and have enjoyed many trips to Jeff’s cabin and Saturdays just shooting the breeze. Jackie King and Dave became fast friends through their love of music and birds; they sang in churches together, went on birding trips, and she shared her love of multi-cultural foods with him. She also convinced him to go back to college, earn his math and history degrees, and teach with her at CCD. There are many Knights that Dave enjoyed working with, especially during the community breakfasts. Dave would thank, if he could say it himself, all of his wonderful friends, family, and neighbors for the beautiful experiences he had in his life with them. Jeff, Jackie, Ralph, Carolyn, Kurt, Gary, Nancy, Richard, and so many more friends: thank you for being with him and loving him the way he deserved – you were truly important to him and treated him with respect and sincerity. Kathy, Georgia, Cindy, Kim, Billy, and Mikey, and the rest of the clan: thank you for all the fun you had with him while he still lived out east; he never forgot any of those memories and loved all the letters and phone calls throughout the years. Mary: thank you for loving Dave and remaining friends even after the divorce; he may not have always been nice about it, but he appreciated that you stayed in his life. Justin: thank you for being there for Dave the last few years, doing what you could to help him around the house and making sure he took his medicines and had what he needed each day. If Dave impacted your life in a positive way, and you feel the need to do something nice because of it, help someone with a hot meal, call someone you love that you haven’t spoken to in a while, or take your kid fishing – these are the kinds of things that meant the world to him
