On April 24, Keri Denise Harwood Sizemore of Loveland left us too early and sudden at the age of 44.
Keri was born Sept. 17, 1976, in Tooele, Utah. Keri was the youngest of ten children and was often referred to as the “baby sister” by her older siblings.
Keri moved to Ft Collins with her family in 1978. Keri was kind hearted, a little quirky, and always marched to the beat of her own heavy metal drum. Her son Lawson was the light of her life who she loved with her whole heart and soul. Keri and Lawson were never very far apart and shared a special bond.
Keri graduated from Fort Collins High School in 1995. She worked at Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in the call center. This job was perfect for the animal lover that Keri was. She adored dogs and especially dolphins and in most cases preferred dogs to most people.
She is survived and missed by son Lawson; parents Dennis and Barbara Harwood; nine siblings, many nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews and her extended family and friends. She is preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents, one brother and two uncles.
Family and close friends will be gathering at Viegut Funeral Home for services from 2-4 p.m., Saturday, May 1 to celebrate Keri’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to any local animal shelter.
