Billie Don Love

February 26, 1932 ~ October 13, 2016


Billie Don Love, age 84, of Montrose, Colorado died October 13, 2016 at Heidi’s Chalet in Montrose where she has resided for a few years.  Billie was born February 26, 1932 to Don and Lena (Ramsey) Shinn in Logan, New Mexico where she spent her childhood and received her education. Billie married Clinton L. Love on June 26, 1949 in Logan, New Mexico.  They were married 59 years before his passing on June 12, 2008.

Billie Love was an honest, genuine, warm, loving woman to all she came in contact with.  From the twinkle in her eye, especially when she saw children, to her quick wit when winning at 42 (dominos), to her wonderful laugh and smile which we will all remember.  She made an impression on the people she came in contact with and will be missed greatly by her family.  A life well lived!

Billie was a member of Church of Christ for many years, until her health declined a few years ago as was unable to attend.  Billie enjoyed spending time with her family and her church.  Sewing, knitting and crocheting were hobbies she enjoyed, along with her yearly canning.

Surviving family members include her two sons, Jerry Love of Montrose, and Jeff Love of Littleton, Colorado; eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.  Billie was preceded in death by her husband, Clint, a son Larry Love, and daughter Judy Rumbaugh and grandson Dean Love.

A Funeral Service in celebration of Billie’s life will be held on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at 2:00 PM at Crippin Funeral Home Chapel, with Pastor Paul Nystrom officiating.  Interment will follow the service at Cedar Cemetery, east of Montrose, next to her husband Clint.  Crippin Funeral Home & Crematory of Montrose is assisting the family.
