Lucy Grossjan

d. March 25, 2022

Lucy Grossjan, 83, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 25, at the Mike and Kay Ferris Hospice Center (Hope West) in Grand Junction Colorado.  She was preceded in death by her Husband of forty-three years, John Grossjan, on December 25, 2008.

John was a plastics technology engineer, at Revell Models when they met.  Lucy was the switchboard-operator at Revell, who “accidentally disconnected” any calls to John from women.  When he asked what the problem was, she claimed she didn’t know.  They dated, then were married in 1965.

John’s career included work for McColloch chainsaws, Rainbird and Black and Decker, where he replaced some metal parts with light-weight plastic (making them easier to use).  Lucy became a mother to their 3 sons (from previous marriages), homemaker, PTA member, and Den mother for the Cub Scouts.  Their hobbies included fishing, camping, and enjoying John’s keyboard music (piano accordion and organ).  In her later years Lucy’s hobbies included needlepoint, knitting and quilting.

Lucy is survived by her 3 sons, Michael, Arin and Ron, 11 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.  A celebration of life will be held from 2-4 pm, on Friday, April 1, 2022, at the Crippin Funeral Home Chapel.  For those unable to attend, Lucy’s Celebration of Life Slide presentation will be available for viewing at  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to HopeWest Hospice, website –, phone-(970) 241-2212).
