Lucinda Ann Smith Rohrer, 79, passed away on 3/20/2022 in Pueblo, CO after a long battle with COPD and most recently, cancer.  She was born on 9/21/1942 in Havre, MT to Judith Mildred Moxley and Oscar Kermit Smith.

Lucinda (Cindy) grew up in Montana with her five brothers.  She often recalled spending many fond times on the Homestead with her grandmother and grandfather Moxley.  Her parents divorced when she was young, and she went to Colorado to live with her father and his new wife Marguerite as a teenager, gaining a new stepsister, Dolores.  She graduated from Manzanola High School in Manzanola, CO in 1961.  She met her soon to be first husband, Jim Watters, during her senior year in high school after trying to convince him that she had lost the keys to “her” brand new red 1961 Chevy Impala, only to be shocked when he produced a set of keys that fit “her” vehicle.  They were married on 6/17/1962 at Cheraw Methodist church in Cheraw, CO.  They had two children, Deborah (Debbie) Watters, and Sandra (Sandie) Watters Headrick.  She has four grandchildren, Caylon Headrick, Kiefer Headrick, Shaelyn Headrick, and Tristan Headrick, active-duty USMC.  She also loved her granddogs, Debbie’s Australian shepherds, Jaxson and Breeze.

Cindy lived the remainder of her life in various places in Colorado including Denver, Cheraw, Gunnison, Florissant, and Pueblo.  Most of her professional career was spent in the secretarial field, and banking.  Her greatest joy was being an integral part of her daughters’ lives.  She took an active role in helping her girls participate in youth rodeo and later, high school athletics.  She enjoyed bowling, riding horses, and was an avid reader, this was one of her favorite passions. She was able to be an essential part of her grandchildren’s lives as they grew to adulthood, finally seeing the last two graduate from high school in 2016.  Her life was always centered around her girls and her grandchildren.

Later in life, Cindy reunited with an old classmate Russell Rohrer from Montana at a class reunion. After spending time together, old flames rekindled, and they were married May 30th, 2005, in Chinook, MT. Cindy and Russ resided in Florissant CO. for many years, where they enjoyed gambling and made many trips to Cripple Creek. They also traveled and enjoyed trips with siblings and family members. As their health declined, they moved to a lower altitude, in Pueblo Colorado where they lived out the remainder of their lives.

Lucinda is survived by her first husband James L. Watters, TX, daughters, Debbie Watters, TX, and Sandie (Clifton) Headrick, CO; grandchildren Caylon (Andrea) Headrick, CO, Kiefer Headrick, CO, Shaelyn Headrick, CO, and Tristan Headrick, NC; brothers, Billy Bilger, MT, Jim Bilger, MT, Bob Bilger, MT, and many nieces and nephews that she loved very much.

She was preceded in death by her parents Judith Moxley, MT, and Oscar Smith, CO; current husband Russel Rohrer, CO; brothers Dale Smith, CA and Gerald Bilger, MT.
