Callie Slatten

Obituary of Callie Slatten

Callie Patricia Slatten, of Granby, Colorado, passed away Tuesday April 9th 2013 at Kremmling Memorial

Hospital at the age of 61. Callie was born on April 9th, 1952 in Angleton, Texas. After a childhood spent

between Texas and California, Callie's family moved to Grand County in 1969. She graduated from

Middle Park High School in 1970. Callie gave birth to her only son Kyle in 1974.

Over the course of her career she owned and operated numerous successful hair salons, and was

professionally licensed in cosmetology, massage therapy and as an aesthetician. Ms. Slatten also spent

a period of her career in hotel and resort management locally in Grand County as well as in Vail,

Colorado. Her most recent passion and professional achievement was earning the certification of

Quantum Energetics Practitioner. She also held multiple certificates in meditation instruction,

lightwork, energetic healing, and re-connective healing therapy.

Callie was an accomplished musician and enjoyed a successful career as a performance musician touring

the country and sharing her music. Many people locally have fond memories of Callie's beautiful voice

and infectious positive energy.

Alternative healing became a lifelong passion as Callie found joy in helping others to improve their lives

and encourage them to see new possibilities. Her nurturing attitude and friendship often crossed over in

to her professional life and inspired others to live their passions. Whether it was helping someone with a

new hairstyle, teaching a meditation class, sharing a new venture, or singing a beautiful song Callie

touched every life she encountered in unexpected ways.

Callie's family was the light of her life. The bond she shared with her granddaughter and both nephews

was immeasurable. She loved to share new experiences with them including outdoor fun, gardening,

music, and exploration. She always saw the often unrecognized magic within each of them and was a

beautiful example of light and love. One of her nephews said " the lesson I remember most from Auntie

Callie is she taught us how to love."

She is survived by her son Kyle Tillotson, his wife Nicole and granddaughter Greya all of Thornton,

Colorado, her mother, Autumn Angelo of Evergreen, Colorado, her sister, Theresa Cinocco, and brother

in law Dean Cinocco, and nephews Christopher and Caden Cinocco of Granby, Colorado. Callie is predeceased

by her father, Eugene "Gene" Angelo, formerly of Hot Sulphur Springs.

"We never know how far the ripples of our life will spread. So live with open arms, love with boundless

passion, let the wonder of the world wash over you." Anonymous

The family will be having a "Celebration of Life" gathering in honor of Callie early summer 2013. Date

and location to be announced.

Callie and I discovered in our senior year, that we knew our way around a guitar. at our class 20 year reunion we wanted to put some music together. We couldn,t find the time to do that. Pat was the greatest! She always made you feel like you "Belonged!" I guess the Lord couldn't wait any longer. our loss is Heaven's gain!

One day I was at Callie's house & she was telling me about this little baby Robin bird making quite a loud fuss in her yard. Chirping away and making its presence known. Callie was very concerned as time went by. Then finally, the baby Robin got the strength or will to fly & return to the nest. This story always stuck with me. When I went to visit Callie two days before she passed this story was in my mind. She has taken flight & is now doing amazing things in the universe. One of Callie's favorite quotes is: When you are about to step into the darkness of the unknown, Faith is knowing one of two things; there will be something solid to land on or you will be taught how to fly. Love & Light Forever

Callie, my cousin, was one of the dearest people I've ever know. Her inner light did shine onto all the people whose lives she touched, like myself. You could not know her without taking a little of that light with you. I was fortunate enough to share a closeness with Callie, almost like a sister, and for that I'll always be grateful. "To give is better than to receive", and Callie was, in life, the very essence of this verse. What she gave me, I will hold dear, and always remember her gifts. I send my sympathy to all my family there. I love you all, and I know there will be a huge void where Callie's light once did shine, but always remember that the light she gave will never dim, as long as it lives in our hearts.....and it always will. Much love, Jeannie

I have known Callie for almost thirty years. We lost touch several years ago and I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I feel her positive energy and joyful spirit often. She lifted up so many with her light and laughter. Even though we haven't seen each other in years, I will miss her kindness and sweetness in this world. Love you sister, Dawn

I am very saddened to hear of the passing of Pat. The last time I saw her, I believe, was when we graduated together in 1970. She was a very sweet girl. I truly thought of her as a beautiful and wonderful woman. One that I was proud to call a friend. May you Rest In Peace Callie (Pat).

Callie and I spent several good years together, she was the love and light of my life during those years. We spent many vacations walking hand and hand together going to Mexico, Hawaii, Fiji and places around the United States. She enjoyed swimming in the ocean and loved walks on the beaches during sunrise and sunsets, with an occational moonlight walk. Callie glowed like the sun and moonlight. Occationally she would sing and it would be amazing. She was so blessed with a beautiful voice, a soft caring heart and a love for family. Somewhere along the line we took separate paths, but she will forever be remembered in my heart.

Our friendship goes way back to the beginning of my life in Grand County. Many times I sat in the kitchen sharing thoughts on songs and stories only to hear her say..."Moby would you just finish the song!" I wrote Rocky Mtn. Air on one of those visits and I will sing it all the way through just for you Callie. Your friendship always made me a better person and I will be forever in your debt for sharing that fantastic smile and genuine laugh which made the sun glow and the world turn. I promise I will miss your hugs but never you because your memory will always be on the forefront of my mind. Thank you for that. I loved you then, I love you now and I will love you forever. Hugs and I'll see you on the other side. Moby
