Obituary

Marcia (MOE) Lynn Skaro ascended to the heavens on February 2, 2020, after a long fight with Lymphoma. Born to Harry and Jackie Skaro on January 18, 1954, Moe was the oldest of four children. She was preceded in death by her sister Kimberly, and her parents.
Moe was an avid athlete, and held a position on the U.S. Nordic ski team for 4 years. She gave herself tirelessly to the Boulder Safe house, and also to the Boulder Humane Society. She was awarded the Jimmy Huega Humanitarian award for contributing her time and efforts in her community of Boulder Colorado.
In 2002, Moe was invited to carry the torch through the Streets of Boulder for the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake. Moe was greatly loved by her community of friends in Boulder. Her family wants to express their love and gratitude to the community of Boulder, for embracing Moe and surrounding her with love, support, and endless acts of kindness during her 50 years as a Boulder-rite.
Moe is survived by her 4 pets, her brother Steven Skaro of Bogota Columbia, and sister Jackie Skaro McPheeters of Frisco, Colorado, and many nieces and nephews. She gave her heart unconditionally to all those her knew her, and she will never be forgotten. She never gave up on anything or anyone!. Thank you Moe for being our INSPIRATION!
A memorial will be held at the Boulder East Community Center at 12:00 Noon, on February 29th, 2020. Bring your stories and let's "wake" her!

I traveled from Kansas City to meet Moe lfor the first time on January 19, 2018. It was just before she entered the hospital for her marrow transplant. She had so many friends stopping by to visit and wish her well. She smiled and laughed through the conversations and, as I watched her interact with everyone so effortlessly, it was easy to forget she was going to the hospital for a life threatening procedure the next day. It was only after everyone had gone that Moe let her exhaustion and fear show; sharing with me, a stranger, her hopes for the transplant, her determination to get home to her fur babies and her work and (for the briefest of moments) her fears and frustrations in having to fight cancer for her life. Our conversation was raw and honest - the kind that can only be had with a stranger as soneone faces the scariest of times in life and the shadow of such a critical event approaching the next day. Moe was an incredible person; a big personality with a legendary kind of life. It was truly an honor to meet her, to have that vulnerable conversation with her that night and to stay in her home with Mr. Spencer, Chase the Face, Queen Zuzi and Princess Loki while she was away for her procedure. It was a privilege to call Moe my friend for the past year.

I arrived in Boulder yesterday and, prior to receiving the news Moe had passed away almost exactly a year to the day I had first met her, I had made plans with Moe to visit her today. We spoke just three weeks ago and I'm still struggling to process and accept that I will be attending her wake instead of visiting her while I'm here. I'm so grateful for the chance to have met such an extraordinary woman and call her friend. I will miss her and the furries.

I'm one of Moe's more recent Boulder friends, having met her through our business networking group. She was such an inspiration to all of us: her courage and perseverance, her kindness and her steadfast friendship even as she battled hard live on in our memories. Whenever it snows, I will think of you, Moe, grateful for being able to call you my friend.
