Barbara Chlo Grundy, 83, left this earth peacefully on April 5, 2015, after a brief illness. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Stanley H. Grundy; parents, Oren & Ruth Humble; and brother, J Humble. She is survived by two daughters, Barbara (Mike) and Stephanie; three sons, Stan (Susan), Ed, and Paul (Clara); and six grandchildren, Kristen, Kenny, Christopher, Connor, Adam, and Michael; sister, Joy Kenworthy; sister-in-law, Shirley Humble; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless wonderful friends. Born February 16, 1932, in Big Spring, Texas, she moved with her family as a young girl to Penrose, Colo., where she lived until the sudden death of her father, Oren Humble. The family then moved to Pueblo, Colo. where she attended Central High School, graduating in 1950. While working as a dental assistant, she and Stanley met in Pueblo and were married in 1953. They enjoyed a full, loving and amazing marriage for more than 56 cherished years. Stanley and Chlo had five children between 1955 and 1962. Both dedicated their lives to the loving care of their family. Chlo worked tirelessly to ensure everyone was taken care of, including her friends, always putting others' needs before her own. Chlo lived life to its fullest. Her hobbies included gardening, bowling, spending time with friends, working around her home and yard, corresponding with her children, and traveling with Stanley. They experienced the world; visiting places as far away as Alaska, Hawaii, Indonesia, Singapore, Bali, Mexico, England, Ireland, and Scotland. She was always an adventurous spirit who, even in her sixties, backpacked through the Grand Canyon four times with her children. After the passing of her dear husband in 2009, Chlo moved to Tucson, Ariz. where she could be close to her children and grandchildren. She lived in a lovely retirement community where she made many new friends, and was always willing to participate in and experience new adventures. It was a true blessing to be able to celebrate birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings, and Denver Bronco football games with her family in Tucson. Although the loss of her beloved husband was devastating, she courageously persevered and made the most of her remaining time with family and friends. For that, we are forever grateful. She will be greatly missed by many and forever loved by all. Funeral services were previously held in Tucson, Ariz. A memorial service is scheduled in Pueblo, Colo. at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 10, at the First Church of the Nazarene, 84 Stanford Ave. Inurnment, Mountain View Cemetery Chapel Mausoleum.

  1. I’m very sorry to hear about Chlo’s passing. Chlo was such a warm and caring person. I spent a lot of my early childhood in her home, my parents both worked and I went to Chlo and Stanley’s house during the day. Chlo and Stanley were kind and nurturing people. They made my days fun and were incredibly patient- I suspect I was a real pain in the neck sometimes. I’ll never forget eating the mayonnaise and banana sandwiches Chlo would make for me and I’ve always thought back on my time with her very fondly.
