Odelia Cortez Obituary

Odelia Marie Cortez, age 86, passed away in Denver, Colorado on January 5, 2024.

Born December 23, 1937, in Sarcillo, Colorado, daughter of Santiago and Julia (Montoya) Martinez. Odelia lived in Denver and worked as a seamstress at Gerry’s Outdoor Sports until retiring in 1997. Odelia was a member of the parish of Holy Rosary Church.

Odelia’s loves were her dogs and cats and her favorite things were chocolate, coffee (filled to the rim), and candles. What we enjoyed most was her beauty, hearing her hum and her laugh. We appreciated how she always welcomed us into her home and instead of saying goodbye, she'd say, “Come back anytime.”

Odelia is survived by her 7 children, Shirley, Frankie, Kathy, David (Betty), Melinda, Vivian (Julio), Sherry, and 22 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren, 6 great-great-grandchildren, and 2 sisters Lydia (Chris Aguirre) and Arlene Valverde. Odelia was preceded in death by two of her children, Ronald and Yvonne, her husband Frank Cortez and 4 brothers, Leo, John, Jim, Joe and 3 sisters, Daisy, Anna Mae, and Debbie.

A viewing will begin at 10:00 a.m. on January 18th, 2024, at Holy Cross Catholic Church, 9371 Wigham Street, Thornton, CO 80229. Her interment will be at Olinger Highland Cemetery, 10201 Grant Street, Thornton, CO 80229 at 1:00 p.m. in the mausoleums. Following the internment, relatives and friends are welcome back to Holy Cross Catholic Church, 9371 Wigham Street, Thornton, CO 80229 for the reception.
