Susan Lorraine Kittredge, 62, died Dec. 2 at home in Kittredge after complications from a broken hip in July.
She was born Feb. 24, 1946, in Denver and raised in Arvada when it was still a farming community. She was a graduate of Arvada High School. She lived in Kittredge for 35 years.
Her parents were Ralph and Aldon Johnson.
She loved animals. One day, as a preteen, she brought a calf home and said, “Mommy, can I keep him?” When a baby skunk wandered into the backyard, she made it her pet, much to the consternation of her parents and neighbors.
