  2. To Ella Schrock’s Family: Ella was a docent at El Pueblo Museum when I was director there. She was very creative, organized and interested in teaching art as a part of early Colorado history to young children. She developed some original art projects that were continuously used for the 7 years that I was there. I had the greatest respect for her and so did the many children whom she taught. My sympathy and love to her family….

  3. My sincere condolences to the family. Most wonderful woman who was very kind and generous and always made sure that I received the Towers bulletin monthly after I moved to Monte Vista two years ago.

    God Bless your family
