Obituary for Margaret Ann Perron

Perron, Margaret Ann, age 61 of Littleton. Margaret’s soul was freed on Sept 9th following a 10 month battle with cancer. She will be remembered for her kindness and gentleness, a person that was a friend to everyone that entered her life. Mitzi was born in Hillsboro, Oregon. She was the second child born into the Williams family. Parents Ken and Phyllis (Shaw) moved from Hillsboro to Denver and took residence on Yates Street where their family continued to grow. Mitzi had four brothers (Steve, Tom, Mark and Mike) and three sisters (Kathy, Anita and Carol). She attended Kennedy High School and went on to graduate from the University of Northern Colorado where she graduated with dual majors in Sociology and Family and Consumer Sciences. Mitzi’s career in Social Services was highlighted by her 10 years of service as an Adoptions Case Worker for Jefferson County. Mitzi was a natural as an adoptions case worker. Her deep care and concern for each child’s welfare was her motivation and the reason the long hours and heartbreaking interviews made it worthwhile. In 1987 Mitzi met Denis on a blind date. They were married 10 months later at the Denver University Chapel. Katie was born in 1989 filling Mitzi’s dream to have a family of her own. Kimberly was brought into the world in 1991 to help share in the joy that Mitzi, Denis and Katie had found with each other. Mitzi quickly transitioned from her career in adoptions to that of a full time mom. Her life was devoted to making a home for her family and raising Katie and Kim. She never hesitated to become involved in school volunteer work, community charity support (St Frances Cabrini Church and the Gardens at Columbine) and participating in family activities for nieces, nephews and friends. As the children grew older their love and admiration for horses became part of Mitzi’s life. For many years family activities centered on training and competitions. Mitzi loved animals of all kinds and she extended care to homeless cats and dogs and the wildlife that surrounded her home in Ken Caryl Ranch. Her love of gardening was tempered by the ravenous appetite of deer and rabbits but never deterred her from planting saying that “they were here first.” In addition to her family Mitzi’s life was made full by friendships with childhood friends, roommates, co-workers and neighbors. Mitzi’s genuine, honest and caring personality was one that was cherished by her friends. Mitzi enjoyed travel and experiencing the natural wonders the world had to offer. Her favorite places visited were Machu Picchu, Castle Combe, southern France, the Maine coast and the foothills of Colorado. Mitzi’s life wasn’t without pain and suffering. The loss of her father at an early age, subsequent losses of her mother and three brothers, her struggle with breast cancer and her recent fight with brain cancer were all difficult and painful but through the adversity she found a way to grow in strength and courage. She was a one of a kind. She nurtured her family and friends with love and care in the face of overwhelming challenges. Words can’t express the sorrow her passing brings but we will honor our commitment to her to carry-on and make the world a better place in her memory.
