Obituary for Patty Lou Millar

Patty Lou Trimm-Millar was born to Clifford and Lois Schoech February 15th, 1939.
She was raised, along with her brothers, Tom and Eddie in Golden Colorado. She discovered her faith and love for music early in life while singing and playing the organ for the 1st Methodist Church in Golden. She graduated Golden high School and then went to Colorado State University where she learned there was more to life than school and music…. mainly cowboys! In her early 20’s she met and fell in love with Jim Trimm. They wed on January 22nd, 1961 and made their home in Arvada Colorado. They gave birth to two children, Pam and Jon.
The Trimm family became part of the “Old Neighborhood” and Patty was lucky enough to meet and make lifelong friends with her neighbors on Quail Street. Later she moved to her favorite place, Winter Park Colorado in the late 70’s. There she conquered mountains, mechanical bulls and raising 2 children as a single parent. Patty broke hearts, broke rules and brought smiles and warmth to every life she touched! She eventually moved back to Denver and rekindled a high school romance. She married Don Millar, her high school sweetheart, on August 24th, 1996. Don and Patty lived a full life “18 holes at a time!” They wintered in Phoenix and summered in Arvada.
After Don’s passing Patty was blessed when she found love and companionship again with an old family friend! They spent time on his ranch, caring for his cows, driving tractors and racing Mustangs, (the fire-red Ford variety!!). She was truly blessed! Patty passed on January 2nd, 2021 with family by her side.

She is survived by her Brother, Tom Schoech. 2 children, Pam Balentyne and Jon Trimm. 4 Grand Children, Michael Balentyne, Kailyn Schaffer, Tony Trimm and Sidney Trimm. 4 great grandchildren, Michael O’donnell, Alex O’donnell, Kameryn Balentyne and Lilly Trimm. Our hearts are heavy today, but tomorrow we will raise a glass and celebrate life of Patty Trimm Millar. The sun will continue to shine because heaven is receiving one of the brightest and warmest hearts there is.
We love you Mom!

A celebration of life will be announced, at a later time, when health protocols allow all her friends and family to gather!
