Obituary of Herlinda Ruiz

Herlinda Ruiz, born Herlinda Zavala on February 16, 1929, in Greeley, CO, passed away on January 30, 2024, at the age of 94 in Westminster, CO. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

Herlinda met her husband, Genovevo Ruiz, in Fort Lupton, CO, and they were married on January 9, 1949. They couldn't wait to start a family. Together, they had three children: David, Sylvia, and Christopher. Herlinda was a loving and caring woman, always putting the needs of her family above her own. She had a natural gift for caregiving and cherished her role as a mother and grandmother.

In addition to her dedication to her family, Herlinda also had a successful career as a childcare provider. She owned her own in-home daycare for over 20 years, where she nurtured and cared for countless children in the community. It was a job that brought her great joy and fulfillment.

When she wasn't working, Herlinda enjoyed cooking, shopping, and spending quality time with her loved ones. She had a passion for preparing delicious meals, and her green chile was a specialty that her family adored. Herlinda's grandchildren were particularly fond of her sweet treats, and she always made sure to spoil them.

Herlinda is survived by her son, David Ruiz (Paula), daughter, Sylvia Sanchez (James Sr), daughter-in-law, Carla (Chris), seven grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren, twelve great-great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Guadalupe and Francisca Zavala, her beloved husband, Genovevo Ruiz, her son, Christopher Ruiz, her granddaughter, Angela Abeyta, and her great-granddaughter, Mystie Ruiz.

The funeral arrangements are being handled by Aspen Funeral Home in Arvada, CO. The family would like to express their gratitude to Aspen Funeral Home for their assistance during this difficult time.

Herlinda Ruiz will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. She leaves behind a legacy of love, compassion, and selflessness. May she rest in peace.
