Laura Mae Mason, 85 years, passed away on November 28, 2017, from a long battle with cancer in the comfort of her home of 60 years in the presence of her loving family.

She married the love of her life, Donald Mason, in 1956. He was in the Army and was assigned to ENT Air Force Base. They immediately fell in love with Colorado and made it their home.

Her favorite hobbies included playing cards (especially Pinochle) with her friends and family, solving puzzles, baking, hiking, going to symphonies, and attending all family activities. Her true devotion was to her family and her friends. Laura and Don had 3 children: Debbie, Julie, and Steve, whom she raised after Don passed away in 1963.
