Obituary for Eleanor May Dalpes

Eleanor May Dalpes, 86, of Arvada, CO, passed away peacefully on December 1, 2020 in the company of her loving husband and daughter.

Eleanor was the youngest of ten children born to Dennis and Agnes (Finnie) Hallinan on January 14, 1934 in Denver, CO. She attended Holy Family High School and graduated in 1951. Following graduation, Eleanor worked at the Mountain Bell Telephone Company and then at the Federal Reserve Bank in the accounting department, running the teletype office. She met her future husband at a Denver Archdiocese Cathedral Club event in Estes Park, CO in September of 1960 and they were engaged one month later. Following their marriage in February, 1961, Eleanor moved with her husband, Paul Dalpes, to Moab, Utah to build a new golf course and partner together to run the business. They lived in a trailer on the course grounds and had their first child. After a couple of years, they moved to Cortez, Colorado, where they once again partnered to run the local golf course and have their second child. Returning to Denver in 1967, they settled in Arvada and had two more children.

Eleanor was an avid golfer, known in the family as a fierce competitor with eagle-eye precision on the putting green. She proudly finished a round of nine holes the day before giving birth to her first child. Eleanor joined the Indian Tree Women’s Golf Club in 1970 and was an active member for almost 50 years.

Eleanor was also a devout parishioner of St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church since the late 1960’s, where she attended weekly mass and also served as a weekly adoration attendant for over 25 years.

Eleanor is survived by her husband, Paul O. Dalpes of Arvada and her four children: Paulette Dalpes and her wife, Kathy Obear of Denver; Andrew Dalpes of Los Angeles, CA; Mark Dalpes of Denver; and Michael Dalpes of Harleysville, PA; as well as her granddaughter, Casey Marie Dalpes of Harleysville, PA. Eleanor is also survived by her sister Mary Brady of Pensacola, FL; her brother Dan Hallinan of Denver; and numerous nieces and nephews and extended family.

Funeral services will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Eleanor’s memory may be made to Agape Hospice at Additionally, in 2021, the family will coordinate the planting of a new tree at Indian Tree Golf Course dedicated to the memory of their wife and mother.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff of Indian Tree Golf Course, Nightingale Suites and Agape Hospice for providing such loving care of Eleanor.

Eleanor and I shared lots of stories, and happy memories while playing golf at Indian Tree Golf Course. She loved to play golf, and was out there even on days when her arthritis was really bothering her. We played many times together. She was quite a trooper! She will be missed. Zelda Bahmeier
