Obituary

Vera F. (Tull) Faucett, a resident of Longmont for over 76 years, passed away Wednesday, August 28,
at her home in Longmont. Her passions in life during a 103-year long journey and adventure were
family; china painting, for which she was a recognized artist and expert; having beautiful flowers in her
yard; and making trips to various thrift shops in the area seeking to find the bargain of all bargains.

Vera Faye Tull was born December 9, 1915 in the “drylands” of southeastern Colorado, near Kazan,
CO, to John Thomas Tull and Mae A. (Larsen) (Tull) Thomas, who preceded her in death. Vera was also
preceded in death by her husband Leonard R. Faucett; her son L. Ron Faucett, Jr.; stepfather, Frank R.
Thomas; four sisters, Neta M. (Billee) Tull, Bonnie M. Tull, Helen J. Thomas and Lucille T. Baer; brothers
George W. Tull and John T. (Bud) Tull; and half-sister Ada I. Stephens.

Vera is survived by her daughter Frances Vonalt of Mead; grandsons Dan Vonalt and wife Denise of
Mead and Duane Vonalt of Mead; granddaughter Cindy Cook and husband Jim of Loveland; nine great
grandchildren; nine great, great grandchildren; one nephew, John T. Tull, Jr. and his wife Linda of Bosque
Farms, NM and two nieces, Teresa K. Ratzlaff-Medina of Arvada and Julie Thomas-Buckhouse and her
husband Neal of Donlan, MT.

In 1928 Vera and her family moved from the “drylands” of Colorado to Las Animas, CO, where she attended various schools and graduated from high school in 1934. She married Leonard R.
Faucett in 1934 after high school. They came to Longmont in about 1943. Once in Longmont, Leonard
built the Model Laundry, where Vera worked for a time and helped Leonard get the business
established. After that, Vera’s interests turned to china painting, which she pursued for many years,
becoming an accomplished artist, teacher and expert. Throughout her life, Vera valued her family, and
friends she adopted as family, above all. To her family and friends, she was the family favorite and
matriarch.

Services for Vera will be held Thursday morning, September 5 at the Ahlberg Funeral Chapel in
Longmont. A viewing will be held starting at 9:00 am, followed by services at 10:00 am. Pallbearers will
be Jim Cook, Dacotah Downs, Justin Downs, Eduardo (Eddie) Montoya, Brian Vonalt and Jacob Vonalt.
Graveside services and burial will follow at 11:00 am at the Mountain View Cemetery. A reception at the
Ahlberg Funeral Chapel will be held at 12:00/noon following graveside services/burial.
