Meredith Spesock

Meredith Spesock, 59, a wife and mother, passed away in her Twin Lakes home on October 11.

Spesock was born in Denver on December 13, 1960, to Harry and Bonnie Minor. She was the youngest of four children. She met her loving husband of 26 years, Jim Spesock, at a Denver Broncos game in section 518 of Mile High Stadium. They were married April 13, 1994.

Spesock’s family said she had a special love for her family. Spending time together, displaying family heirlooms and remembering her family’s heritage were some of the most important things in Spesock’s life.

Spesock had many passions including: being a collector of many things, cooking, the Denver Broncos and running her store Saturday’s Mercantile in Leadville. For the past five years her store was her most important project. She enjoyed visiting with customers and taking care of all the new inventory, and she valued her employees. These will be remembered as the happiest years of her life, her family said.

“You were our rock,” her daughter Casey Spence said. “We will always love and remember you.”

Spesock was preceded in death by her father, Charles Harry Minor, in September of 2005, and her mother, Bonnie Mae Minor, in August of 2020.

Spesock is survived by her husband, Jim Spesock; sister Stephanie Daube of Denver; brother Mark (Diana) Minor of Snohomish; brother Eric (Susan) Minor of Denver; daughter Casey (Doug) Spence of Buena Vista; son Sagen Spesock of Englewood; grandchildren Russell Hapl and Shelby Spence of Buena Vista; nephews Glen Kaufman, Craig Kaufman, Dennis Minor, Andrew Minor; and nieces Michelle Oatman and Christina Payton.

A family service will be held on November 21 in Denver. Donations in Spesock’s memory can be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund.
