Nita May Stalfort
June 12, 1929 – July 26, 2019
Nita M. Stalfort, 90, passed away on July 26, 2019 in her home at the Estes Park Good Samaritan Village, Estes Park, CO. Nita May Madere was born 12 June 1929 in Hahnville, LA and was raised by her parents E. Hubert Madere and the former Jeanne M. Keller. She taught school briefly after graduating from Southwestern Louisiana Institute, served honorably as an officer in the US Navy, worked as an airline stewardess and later pursued civilian employment with the US Army in Germany where she met and married her husband Charles G. E. Stalfort, Jr. (Chuck). Nita raised son David and daughter Susan as a devoted Army wife and eventually moved to Orange Park, FL upon Chuck’s retirement from active duty to build their dream home. During a visit to Estes Park, Nita and Chuck discovered the Village. In May 2010 they closed their 38 year long adventure in Orange Park, pulled their roots and moved to the Village for the start of a new one. Throughout her life her family, her gardens and plants and her Bridge games gave her contentment. Nita is survived by her husband, Chuck, son David and his wife Trena, two grandsons Taylor and Connor and daughter Susan. Private commitment services for Nita’s ashes will be in the Estes Valley Memorial Gardens.

We are so sad to have received word of (aunt and godmother) Nita’s passing. I have such fond memories of Nita, uncle Chuck, and Nita’s sister Rosie along with my mom eating crabs on the back porch (with my dad complaining all the time!) and the many, many Thanksgiving celebrations we shared together. A truly beautiful woman and person. Very thankful so many of us were able to visit her and Chuck a few years ago. Prayers, thoughts, and deepest sympathy to Uncle Chuck, Susan, and David.

We are so sad to hear of Nita's passing and wrap you all in prayer as you adapt to the gap she leaves in your lives. Chuck, Susan, David, Trina and all, we recall her with such pleasure. It was an joy to share the cul-de-sac with you here in Orange Park for over 2 decades. The celebrations, the progressive dinners, the chats on the street, the football parties all folded together to build a special neighborhood like no other. Nita and Chuck were an essential part of the magic. Thank you for the memories! We send you all love~

My sympathy to Chuck, David and Susan. I am Nita's first cousin. When Chuck was overseas, I gave a puppy to David and Susan. In my eyes, Nita was tall, statuesque and beautiful. My prayers are with you all.
