Obituary for Alice Solano (Atencio)

Alice Kathryn (Atencio) Solano, 83, died Thursday, November 23, 2017 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. She was born December 26, 1933 to Esther (Tafoya) and Joe Atencio in Salida, Colorado. The family moved to Canon City, Colorado in 1943. Alice graduated from Canon City High School and arranged class reunions for decades following. She was proud to be a Canon City Tiger.
On April 23, 1960 she married Isidro Solano. They made their home in Canon City, where Alice worked for St. Thomas More Hospital as a lab technician for many years. Sid was active in the Elks and Alice was by his side as an Elkette. She was dedicated to the restoration of the San Juan Bautista Cemetery in Florence, Colorado. She was a member of the St. Michael Catholic Parish for over seventy years and was an avid supporter of the animal shelter and a lover of all things with fur or feathers.
Alice moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming in 2016 following the death of her husband. She was also preceded in death by her mother and father, sisters, Ida, Mary, Esther and Lena and brother, Ralph. She is survived by sister, Carmel (Forest) Hamilton of Cheyenne, Wyoming; brothers, Chuck (Rachel) of Pueblo West, Colorado, Joe (Betty) Atencio of Hephzibah, Georgia, along with many, many nieces, nephews and extended family.
Alice didn’t know a stranger. She delighted trick-or-treaters for decades with homemade popcorn balls and her laugh was infectious. Just as lovingly as she had cared for so many through her life, the staff of the Aspen Wind Assisted Living center in Cheyenne cared for her with extraordinary kindness.
Recitation of the Rosary with Vigil service, 5:00p.m. Wednesday, November 29, St. Michael Catholic Church, 1016 Mystic Ave., in Canon City. Mass of Christian Burial, 11:00a.m Thursday, November 30, also at St. Michael Catholic Church, Reverend Jesse Perez as Celebrant with interment to follow at Lakeside Cemetery .
For those who are interested in a donation, the family suggests the animal shelter or an organization that supports research for the cure of Progressive Supranuclear Palsy.
