We are saddened to inform you that Toni Baltizar, mother of Courtney '13 and Natalie '15, passed away on April 12.
"Toni Kay Baltizar, more commonly known as “Tbizzle,” gained her angel wings on April 12, 2021, in Aurora, Colorado at age 49, a month shy of her 50th birthday. She died peacefully with family holding her hand at her bedside. Toni did not lose her battle to leukemia. Her third bone marrow transplant worked, however, she died from complications resulting from Human Herpes Virus 6 impacting her brain. Toni never gave up hope, but in the end, she fought for peace and won. Toni was born to James and Tamra Rheinheimer on May 24, 1971. She was an amazing mother to two daughters, Courtney, Natalie and her soon-to-be son-in-law, Kyle Quinn. Toni loved to spend time with her family doing anything and everything. She enjoyed skiing, hiking, camping, four-wheeling, wake surfing, and walking her dog, Koa. Most of all, she loved to make those around her laugh. Her radiant smile could bring sunshine on a rainy day. Toni could make a stranger feel like family with her warm hugs and bubbly personality. Her compassion, determination and spirit will live on in those who know and love her. Although she may be physically gone, Toni’s life does not end here as a light as bright as hers will shine forever." Click here to view the full obituary.

We are saddened to inform you that LeRoy Joseph Schroder II '62 passed away on April 14, 2021.
"Born on January 22, 1944, to LeRoy and Laverne “Babe” (Storms) Schroder in Des Plaines, Illinois, he spent his childhood in Glenwood Springs, Colorado before moving to Denver in 1958. He grew up in poverty, but never complained, and was a steadfast guardian of his brother Chuck and his mom, as his father was often working construction jobs out of town. He loved the mountains and some of his favorite memories were of fishing and hiking in Glenwood Canyon with his friends and family. A proud graduate of Regis Jesuit High School, he attended Colorado State College (now the University of Northern Colorado), where he played football and abandoned his ideas about the priesthood when he met his wife of 55 years, Kathy, whom he proceeded to marry in 1966. They briefly lived in Tempe, Arizona while he attended graduate school, but soon returned to Colorado to be near family as they started their own. LeRoy worked for the United States Geological Survey for 35 years, earning numerous awards and was recognized as one of the country’s leading hydrologists, and an expert in acid rain’s impacts on the environment. Ahead of his time, he worked for and mentored a number of women, who to this day, appreciate his contributions to the field and to their professional development. While he made a name for himself professionally, his family was always his number one priority, and he turned down numerous promotional opportunities to stay in Colorado. Whether he was coaching soccer teams, building “scientifically enhanced” pinewood derby cars, taking his kids skiing, or caring for his aging parents and in-laws, he was always a devoted husband and loving father. LeRoy was committed to his faith and was an active member of the Arvada Jaycees, as well as the Men’s Club at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. He was awarded the Mildenberger Pro-Life Award by the Knights of Columbus in 2009, 2012 and 2014. When he became “Papa” in 2001, his commitment to his family deepened further as he took early retirement in 2003 so he would have more time to spend with his precious grandchildren, who were the light of his life. He taught his only granddaughter to shoot a BB gun and attended numerous sporting and school events for his four grandsons." Click here to view the full obituary.
A visitation will be held on Thursday, April 29 at 6:00 pm followed by a Recitation of the Rosary at 7:00 pm at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church. A Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, April 30 at 10:30 am at the same location.
