My Story

Ruth Conlisk Nye Dobson, 88, formerly of Colorado Springs CO, died November 7, 2009, at the Life Care Center of Pueblo CO. Born in East Orange, NJ on September 13, 1921, she was the eldest child of the late Joseph F. and Alice Weed Conlisk. In addition, she was predeceased by her husband, Donald Dobson and her only sibling, William F Conlisk. She was married first during WWII to Irwin Clair Nye, originally of Wisconsin. They were later divorced. Her early adult years were closely bound to his assignments as a career army officer. She enjoyed life in the Philippine Islands, Germany and various parts of the United States. She later married Donald Dobson, who was retired from the U.S. Department of State. Prior to moving to Pueblo she had lived in Colorado Springs for more than forty years. She had been a Colorado Springs real estate agent in the 1960's, with Walker and Company, and was a long time employee of Penrose Hospital in Colorado Springs. More than anything else, she cherished time spent with her beloved family.
