Katherine Ann Tive
February 4, 1932 – June 3, 2021
Katherine Ann (Lamonte) Tive passed away June 3, 2021 at a care facility in Colorado Springs after a short illness. “Trina”, as she was called, was 89.
Trina was born February 4, 1932 in Bronx, New York to Dominic and Angela Lamonte. She and her husband Robert “Bob” Stanley Tive met and married in New York in 1951. He soon worked for United Airlines where they transferred to Colorado in 1956 and remained in the Denver area. For over 20 years Trina worked for the Aurora Public School system and was the well-known friendly voice calling substitute teachers. Her hobbies included traveling, knitting, crocheting, water aerobics, and baking.
She and her husband traveled extensively while taking advantage of Bob’s travel benefits. Besides many U.S. destinations, other travels included Israel, China, Italy, Scandinavia, Spain, and Egypt. They also bravely traveled the northern United States on a Honda, 750cc motorcycle. She and her husband could be found at garage sales, camping, and enjoying their growing family. She was an active, life-long, member of the Lutheran Church, and her high energy and quick wit were always a welcomed addition when participating in numerous activities. Of late, she especially enjoyed her knitting group and the close friendships she had formed.
Trina is survived by her sons, Bruce (Nancy), Kris (Debbie) and Glen (Gail). She is also survived by her 6 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Her grandchildren include Jason, Allison, Kristopher, Kelly, Sheaffer and Skylar.
Trina was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Bob Tive.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 25th at 10:00 am at Faith Community Center at 6228 S. Carr Ct., Littleton, CO 80123.
Our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother will be greatly missed.
