H. Virginia "Ginger" Chacon

June 9th, 1936 - March 27th, 2024

Helen Virginia “Ginger” “Honey” (Salazar) Chacon returned home, to the arms of the Lord, on March 27, 2024.  Ginger was born in Canfield, Colorado on June 9, 1936 to Isabel Nunez-Salazar and Maclovio Salazar.  At the age of ten, Ginger was sent to live with her aunt and uncle Felicia (“Faye”) Nunez Mora and Ramon Vargas Mora who raised her as their own.  Ginger attended primary school in Ione and graduated from Ft. Lupton High School in 1954.

 In 1957, Ginger married Richard B. Chacon, of Gilcrest, and the two had five children:  Roberta Chacon (Mike) Caciari, Dick (Lori) Chacon, Rosalind (Larry) Ewing, René (Daniel) Aafedt, and Ronald (Tiffany) Chacon.

 Ginger graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 1972 and embarked upon her lifelong dream of being an educator at a daycare center in Fort Lupton.  She eventually made her way to Weld County RE-1 school district where she found her professional home teaching for an astounding 25 years. 

 Ginger earned a reputation as an exceptional cook, often hosting weekly and biweekly meals for her children and their families and eventually for her grandchildren and their friends.  She enjoyed reading, Rockies games, shopping, dancing, traveling, tea parties, spending time with her sister(s) and close friends, and praying the Rosary.  Undoubtedly, one of her favorite pastimes was attending her children & grandchildren’s extracurricular events.  Ginger was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

 She was preceded in eternal life by her husband, Richard Chacon; grandson, Logan Chacon; her parents and guardians, brothers, John Salazar and Ray Mora, and sisters, Lupe Castro, Mary (Pinkie) Samora, Irene Sena, Mary Chacon and Mary Ellen Montoya.  Recitation of the Rosary 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 11, 2024 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  Mass of Christian Burial will be at 11:00a.m. Friday, April 12, 2024 at St. Mary's Catholic Church.   Memorial gifts may be made to the “Chacon Memorial Scholarship” or the “Logan Chacon Memorial Scholarship” in care of Adamson Life Celebration Home, 2000 W. 47th Ave., Greeley, CO  80634.
