Obituary for Florence Schwab

Florence DeLellis Schwab, born 100 years ago in Lime, Colorado to parents Pauline (Corpolongo) and Joseph DeLellis, and raised in Pueblo, Colorado, passed away in Canon City, Colorado on November 21, 2017. Florence was preceded by her husband and best dance partner of 64 years, Michael Schwab Sr. She was also preceded by her parents and siblings, Helen Spinuzzi, Louis DeLellis, Mary Lehr, Tony DeLellis, and daughter-in-law, Laura Schwab.
Florence leaves to cherish her memory sons, Mike (Patti), Ron (Carol); grandchildren, Ron (Jaime), Nikol(Rich), Kylee (Cherylynn); great-grandchildren, Christian, Jailee, Easton, Henry, Josephine; sister and brother-in-law, Charles and Jean Carlino along with many nieces and nephews.
Florence was blessed with not only a loving family but also many loving friends. She treasured her dear friends Georgianna Bresnam, friend of over 20 years, Star McIlhenny, daily sunshine, Betty White, daily coffee delivery, Jim La Brash, dance partner and Charlotte and Billy Haines.
Florence was clear that her 100th birthday party was her good-bye to all. She wanted everyone to remember her laughing, eating and visiting at her party. She requested no services or memorial and cremation has taken place. Florence would prefer you go out and dance, honor your family by sharing a meal together or enjoy a visit with dear friends.
The family wishes to thank all of Florence’s friends, the staff at Legacy Center, Fremont Regional Hospice and Dr. Reppert and staff for caring lovingly for her.
