Obituary

Judith Diane (Judi) Springsteel, passed away at her home in Broomfield on February 20, 2020 after a long illness. She was 77.

Judi, a 5th generation Coloradan, was born on August 28, 1942 in Longmont to Lee and Alberta (Knaus) Forsyth. She grew up on the family farm west of Niwot, and called Niwot home for 75 years. In her youth she was active in the Rebekahs and 4-H, winning multiple ribbons and trophies for showing her beloved Brown Swiss cow, Buttercup, at the Boulder County Fair. She graduated from Longmont High School in 1960.

Judi and her brothers also competed in stock car drag racing, often taking their cars to races in Pueblo and Nebraska among others. She took several 1st place trophies racing her 1964 Chevelle.

After high school, Judi had various jobs in the Longmont/Boulder area. She worked as a carhop at the original A&W on Main St, at the Great Western Sugar Factory, at Ode Banjos and at Western Cutlery. It was at the latter where she met Gary Springsteel; the couple married in 1967 and had one daughter, Robin. They were later divorced. Starting in 1977, Judi delivered newspapers for many front range publications, including the Times Call and Rocky Mountain News. She retired in 2016 after delivering papers for 39 years due to a decline in health. She was also the secretary/treasurer and ditch rider for the Holland Ditch from the late 90s until 2018.

Judi enjoyed attending Rod Stewart and Tina Turner concerts, going to Estes Park, having lunch with friends, and spending time with her grandson, Randy. In her younger years she also liked to crochet and draw. She loved to eat out and watch TV; among her favorite shows were Tosh.0 and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Albert (Bud) and Steve Forsyth.

Judi is survived by her daughter Robin (Albert) Sinclair of Broomfield; grandson Randy Creager of Thornton; former son-in-law Tom Creager of Thornton; sister-in-law Judy Forsyth of Golden; Tosh, her darling yellow tabby cat and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

A special thank you to the staff and caregivers at Elevations Hospice; Daniel, Jordan, Megan, Kyler, Brianne, Suzanne, Val, Korie, Tom, Natalie, Edgar, Tassia and Goldie. Your kindness and compassion helped make her journey and that of her family loving and peaceful.
