I love Ricki. She was one of the first people I met in South Park and she taught me so much about the history of this place. A quick stop at the P.O. to get my mail often turned into an hour of great conversation. She fought ALS with determination, even with so many misdiagnoses. Rest in peace, Ricki. You will be remembered as a Como pioneer and historian.

SO, this amazing, creative and loving individual that was Ricki was so many things. To me, she was the compassionate wise woman who calmed my frantic family and saved my father’s life by administering oxygen and ensuring that the EMTS came quickly to Como when his heart gave way. I wish there had been more time to learn from this remarkable woman that Como and our family owe so much to.

We live in Denver and have a cabin in Santa Maria Ranch. We have been casual visitors to the Como Mountain Man Gallery. Ricki was the reason we would return over the many years we would drop by and catch up on what was happening in Como. Ff course, we would show grandkids the interesting pictures and more at the Gallery. I remember how she lovingly cared for her mother and then later her husband. She deserved her True Pioneer of South Park award.

On behalf of the alumni from Dreux American High School, our sincere condolences to Ricki's family. I had the opportunity to visit Ricki in Como on several occasions when we vacationed in Breckenridge. It was always fun to see her!
