Joannie Paget

Aspen, CO ColoradoJoannie Paget passed away unexpectedly Oct. 31, 2006, after hip replacement surgery, at the Plaza Del Rio Care Center in Peoria. She was born Sept. 17, 1928, in New York, the only child of Bertie and Kenneth Paget.

She was a mother and homemaker in Southfield, Mich., until moving to Colorado. She made Aspen her home for many years, running a successful bookkeeping business, and was known by many for her smile and infectious laugh. There was no such thing as a stranger in Joannie’s book. She had a fun-loving, adventurous spirit.

After leaving Aspen in the early ’80s, she went to Phoenix, where she spent much or her time in her motor home, finally settling in Wickenburg, Ariz., where she purchased a home.

During that time, she would come back to Aspen with her constant companion, her King Charles spaniel, and worked as a ranger at one of the campgrounds on Independence Pass for a number of summers. She is survived by her two sons, Clifford (Clipper) Dunn and Gregory Dunn; daughter in-law Ann (Candy) Dunn; grandchildren Steven Dunn and Allison Dunn, and many friends.A memorial service to honor her spirit in the mountains that she so loved may take place in Aspen later this spring or summer.
