Alice Chadderton Obituary

Alice May (Zipperle) Chadderton passed peacefully into heaven January 9, 2024.  She was raised in Cleveland, Ohio and attended Case Western Reserve for one year.   She then enrolled in Chiropractic School so that she could adjust her dad’s back that had been injured in an accident.  She met Earl S. Chadderton in 1947 while he too was studying to become a Chiropractor.  He proceeded her in death.  Together they raised 3 girls, two of which were twins (I think they are identical:  Cynthia (husband Kent), Denise, Donna (husband Jerry (deceased).  Alice was given the nickname Zip by her husband and it stuck with everyone on dad’s side of the family.  Mom lived up to her name with boundless energy, a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh.

She was a gifted singer and could deliver hilarious jokes.  She was and is beautiful inside and out with gorgeous hazel eyes and white, white, hair. 

She was enormously generous with her family.  She adored her grandchildren (Christine, Paul, Sean, Chad, Michelle, Sarah and Melissa (deceased), and great grand children (Jack, Carson, Ruby, and Ian).

She was a co-pilot in their airplane with her husband and ran a car dealership with him for many years in Burlington, Colorado.  While living in Burlington for decades, they made many lasting friendships with friends and neighbors.

She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
