I had the privilege to meet Lydia when her Washington DC- Dulles flight back to California was delayed for several hours. She was a strong, intelligent and articulate lady. The one thing I picked up from her was her pride and joy in her family.
Renate has also told me about her Mom’s love of her family, especially all her grandchildren and great- grandchildren. It was honor to have met Lydia, a very special lady. I wish I could have spent more time with her.
May there be comfort to all of Lydia’s family.

The Colorado Family just feels lost with out this strong woman in our lives.
It would take days to explain how special this Women, Mother, Grandma and Great-Grandmother was to each of us.
She helped shape each of our lives.
She will be dearly missed
Love you, Mom

My condolences to your family. I worked with Lydia at CHOMP many years ago...and learned so much from her. I also learned to polka at her house one Christmas which was delightful. I am so glad she had a long life and many people who loved her. Auf Wiedersehen, Lydia..RIP

She is one amazing woman that will truly be missed. She will always be my mentor, my rock. I will miss our conversations. She was always there for me. We will all miss the adventures we had so much fun showing the boys new thing. She absolutely loved it.

She loved coming to see her great grandchildren Nathan and Jonny holiday parade at school. Look at that smile.💟

Oma was my hero, my mentor, and the person I could always talk to. She was an anchor for our family. She taught me some many wonderful things about how to treat others with kindness and respect. She taught me to always keep an open mind, listen, and learn from everything around you. She always made sure that I felt loved and that I knew how amazing I was. She was a survivor. She was brave. She was strong.

I feel so small and lost knowing she is not just a phone call away. The world feels a little less bright without her. I will honor her always through my thoughts and actions. I am so glad that she got to meet and know all of my children. I will forever be honored to be her namesake. I love you Oma.

Little Lydia
