Amelia Jean Carroll passed away on May 13th, 2018. She was surrounded with love and comfort in her home in Erie.
Amelia was born in Pineville, West Virginia on March 4th, 1938 to Harry Lambert and Dorothy Phillips. One of her favorite things to do as a child was to play in the woods. She would spend hours in the woods behind her house creating and playing. This is also when she discovered her love of coloring and drawing.
Amelia was a devoted and loving Mother and Grandmother. Her life was her kids and her Grandkids, and she took every chance she had to spend time with, and do things with her family. She was also known for her incredible sense of humor, which was present even during hard times. Her strong will to live, unwavering faith in God, and the love and prayers of family, friends, and many supporters carried her through her battle with cancer. Her positivity and willingness to fight was awe- inspiring all throughout her illness. She was grateful for each day and each breath. Family and friends will gather May 21st at Crist Mortuary 3395 Penrose place Boulder 80301. Funeral service will be from 10 am with interment to follow at Mountain View Memorial Park.

Jean and I were next door neighbors for about 10 years. She not only was a good neighbor but proved to be a wonderful friend over those years. I knew her to be a person of faith which gave her strength in difficult times. Her love for her children and grandchildren knew no bounds, and her times with them gave her great joy. Her love of pizza, chocolate, and flowers was legendary, and her quick wit and quirky sense of humor were infectious! At some of the most awkward and difficult times during her illness, she selflessly managed to get even her caregivers to laugh.
She made my world and that of many others brighter and better just by being in it! I will miss her!

Where to begin with memories of my wonderful mother. I'll start with the Friday night conversations to catch up with what happened during the week. Her first, because she was excited about what happened with the grandchildren. I felt like I was there because she was so artful in describing what occurred. She noticed everything and I was happy to hear it all, especially from her. Then me and what was going on in my life. She said just the right thing, always.

My favorite, recent memory is our breakfasts together. I’d walk into her room and dipole her condition, she’d have a big smile on her face and say “good morning” That was followed by “I’m hungry”. We’d get her dressed and in her wheel chair. She’d look in the mirror to make sure everything matched (slacks, blouse, scarf, hat) and we would make our way to the kitchen. She was always so excited to hear her ‘options’. We’d sit and talk and laugh and read (mostly her daily inspirationals). It was then I realized I was in the presence of greatness.
