Page Lamberson Stockdale
Page Lamberson Stockdale, age 58, was found deceased on Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014 in rural Routt County, near her hometown of Steamboat Springs. Colo. The cause of death is being investigated as carbon monoxide poisoning. She was first reported missing Nov. 18.
She was born Jan. 27, 1956 in Suffern, N.Y. to George and Mercedes Lamberson. She was the fourth of six children and during her childhood lived in Mahwah, N.J.; Pontiac, Mich.; Shaker Heights, Ohio; and Cheyenne, Wyo.; graduating from Cheyenne East High in 1974.
She graduated the University of Wyoming with a teaching degree in 1978. On her first day of student teaching in Sheridan, Wyo. she was mistaken as an attractive new student by some of the senior boys.
Page dreamed of living in a ski town and Steamboat was a natural location as the Lamberson family made many winter trips there in pursuit of powder days. She called Steamboat home for more than 35 years.
She married Steve Stockdale in 1986 in Steamboat and was a loving stepmother to his sons Jake and Nick. Page and Steve operated Stockdale Construction for more than 30 years. She was a property manager and an employee of Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp since 1986, from which she had just retired and received her honorary lifetime ski pass. She was also a part-time employee at Johnson & Johnson Physical Therapy.
Page had more than 50 family members and hundreds of dear friends. She will be remembered as a person who always took time for each individual in her life. The ski community and the Steamboat Christian Center were a well-loved extended family as well.
Page was a loving and “adoptive” mom to Elizabeta “Cipi” Mack, who was raised in a Romanian orphanage and came to work at the ski area as a young woman.
Page enjoyed spending time with her friends and family, flying, going to Burning Man in Nevada and cracking jokes and telling silly stories. Page was challenged throughout her adult life with extreme scoliosis, a challenge she faced fearlessly and with determination. She did not complain.
She was preceded in death by her parents and former husband.
She is survived by Jake (Meghan) Stockdale, Nick (Amy) Stockdale, and grandsons Bodhi and Jovani Stockdale — all of Lafayette, Colo.; brothers Mark (Rosie) Lamberson of Flagstaff, Ariz.; Bruce (Cindy) Lamberson of Casper, Wyo.; Keith (Marcy) Lamberson of Marietta, Georgia; sister Beth Lamberson Warren of Durango, Colo.; and Paul (Ruth) Lamberson of Hinesburg, VT. She is also survived by many nephews and nieces and great nephews and nieces.
Cremation has occurred and the immediate family will have a private gathering in 2015. A celebration of her life is scheduled for Dec. 7, 2014 at 3 p.m. at Steamboat Christian Center.
The family requests donations in lieu of flowers to be sent to support childhood scoliosis at the Infantile Scoliosis Outreach Program in Denver at Infantilescoliosis.org or by mailing a donation to: ISOP, c/o Ability Connection Colorado 801 Yosemite St. Denver, CO 80230.
