Lois Lorraine Karbach Obituary

Lois Lorraine Karbach

Lois Lorraine Felps Karbach, 67, passed away peacefully in her home on July 4th, 2020. Lois was born in Pueblo, Colorado to Earl and Helen Felps and was the youngest of six beautiful sisters, “the Felps Girls.” After tragically losing both her parents at a young age, she remained in Pueblo while cared for by her sisters. She graduated from Pueblo South High School in 1970. She married A.C. (“Bert”) Karbach, Jr., obtained her associate’s degree in applied science in 1977 from Metropolitan State College and her Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of Colorado in 1991. Most importantly to her, she raised her two beloved twin boys, Chris and James (who she always called “her babies.”). As a lover of books and children, she worked as a children’s librarian in Aurora, Jefferson County, and Douglas County. While working, she also proudly pursued and received her Master’s degree in Library Science from Emporia State University in 1999. She was known for creating amazing story times for kids. In later years, she battled and survived chronic health problems with resilience while continuing to work. Despite it all she never lost her quick wit, love of laughter, and kind soul. And while she also split from Bert, she still held him in her heart. She retired to Springbrooke Retirement community in Denver, where she lived the rest of her life, socializing with friends and family, making many crafts, and spending time playing with her nearest grandson Teddy. Lois had a love of family and friends and enjoyed the holidays. She particularly loved spending time with her boys and grandchildren and opportunities to spend time with her sisters and extended family. She was a devoted confidant and friend to many. She was a highly competitive, avid game player and always enjoyed trivia, Scrabble, and game shows. Lois loved angels and had a large collection of them. She strongly believed that we all have guardian angels. Lois is survived by her twin sons Chris Karbach (spouse Cara and grandchildren Luke and Jake), James Karbach (spouse Megan and grandchild Teddy), and sisters Rosalind Ward (Spouse Les) and Joyce Spears (spouse Robert) as well as a host of other family and friends. A celebration of life will be held at the Quebec Place at Fairmount Cemetery, on July 24th, at 10 a.m. Social distancing will be observed. If you wish to attend please email her son Chris at LKguardianAngel2020@gmail.com. Share a token of love and support by having a written message placed on a Hugs from Home card to the family.
