• Bookmarks: 1


May 27, 1938 – November 21, 2014

Judith G. Kidder-Smith was a long time resident of Gilpin County. She passed away November 21, 2014 due to complications of hip surgery at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver. Judith was the Gilpin County Clerk & Recorder years ago, starting in that office under Morgan Gray in 1976. She was then appointed as the Clerk & Recorder on March 24, 1980. When the elections came up, she ran for that office the same year and was elected. She remained the Clerk & Recorder until she retired in July of 1986.

Judith was also on the Gilpin School Board when the new facility was built. She was very instrumental in helping to get the new school built, enlisting students to go door-to-door to get signatures to help get the school bond put on the ballot and approved.

She is survived by two daughters, Jenny Campbell of Colorado, and daughter Joy. She will be missed by friends and family.
