Lenita Louise Woolsey

Lenita Louise Woolsey June 17, 1938 – November 22, 2018 “In life you need: God, family, music, books, and a sense of humor.”Lenita Louise Woolsey peacefully passed away from natural causes on Thursday November 22, 2018 in Pueblo, Colorado. Lenita was born to Charles F. and Amelia E. Woolsey on June 17, 1938 in Pueblo, Colorado, the second of three children. As a younger child, she was stricken with polio, faced, steadfastly met, and overcame the everyday challenges that this disability presented.   She graduated from Pueblo Catholic High School in 1957. Upon graduation, she went to work full time in the business office at St. Mary Corwin Hospital and remained there for seventeen years.  Lenita then choose to pursue a career in education and completed a Bachelor’s Degree from Southern Colorado State College and a few years later a Master’s Degree from The University of Northern Colorado.  Her teaching career spanned several years in the Arickaree School District in Northeastern Colorado followed by several more years of substitute teaching in the Pueblo School District and offering tutoring services from a Thatcher Building small office in downtown Pueblo. Lenita not only kept busy and involved with the everyday efforts of earning a living but also pursued outside interests and volunteer opportunities in the church and community. She satisfied her inquisitive nature by completing all rigorous requirements to become a Certified Graphoanalyst and excelled at characterizing personality tendencies as revealed in handwriting. She improved and honed her musical skills and capabilities throughout most of her life and volunteered those talents in worship and celebration services both as a musician and vocalist with St Leander’s and Christ the King Parishes. While she did offer her tutoring services on a fee basis, she routinely and consistently demonstrated her care and compassion for those unable to pay by freely volunteering her services to those less fortunate. Lenita was an independent and straight talking soul who enjoyed the occasional singular foreign or domestic travel excursion to some more distant destination to reinforce her independent streak. Often times these trips were taken with the “you  can’t/shouldn’t do that” admonishments from friends ringing in her ears. Undaunted, however, she would set off and return with no difficulty and enjoy regaling the doubters with tales of her adventures and encounters. She did not mince her words and had no trouble speaking her mind and at times being brutally honest with friend and foe alike. One could disagree with her views and approach to things but you never had doubt about where she stood or what position she took. Lenita had a lifetime engagement with her four legged companions and showered them with love and affection (spoiled rotten). Among the favorites were Judy the dog and Quincy the cat. Lenita was preceded in death by her beloved sister and lifelong companion Charlotte and is survived by her brother Leonard, sister-in-law Brenda Woolsey, nephew Fletcher Woolsey and numerous cousins. Cremation has taken place. Memorial services will be scheduled at a future date.   In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts to The Humane Society or to the Sangre de Cristo Hospice, 1207 Pueblo Blvd Way, Pueblo, CO  81005, would be appreciated.
