It is with great sadness that we inform you that Nicole Atzbach, Curator of the Meadows Museum, passed away on Saturday, November 4, after a brief battle with ovarian cancer. We send our heartfelt condolences to her family, friends, and loved ones as they lay her to rest in her hometown of Arvada, Colorado. In lieu of flowers, donations to a scholarship fund set up for her children may be sent to Geoff Atzbach, 3020 Hollycrest Dr., Colorado Springs, CO 80920.
