Obituary

Benita Joy Croteau passed away peacefully in her home on July 26, 2016. "Bea" was born August 29, 1939 on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota to Benjamin and Richenda (Whirlwind Soldier) La Pointe.

She grew up in Rosebud, SD then moved to Denver, CO in 1957 where she met the love of her life Francis Croteau. They married on June 3, 1959, sharing 57 years together. Bea is also survived by her children Lynn, Cris, Valerie, Dean, and Anne; grandchildren Troy, Alyse & Michael, Ben, Ashley, Geoffrey, Cassie, Tyler, Josh, Lakota, and Cienna; great-grandchildren Maicie, Gionni, Zendaya, Olivia, and Octavia.
