Joan Fedel

Joan Fedel
d. August 7, 2017

If you have never seen Joan Fedel and her sousaphone on a float going down Main Street then you’ve never been to a Fourth of July in Ouray. On Monday, Joan passed away in her home surrounded by her family.  

Born Joan Sweitzer, and known as “Jo” by her side of the family, she grew up on a ranch in Eads, Colorado, as the youngest of six children. In 1944 she married Al Fedel and in 1945 moved to Ouray with her new husband and put her college degree to work as a teacher in Ouray and Ridgway. For 27 years she taught physical education and business to students in this area and touched many lives as shown by the students who came to her 90th birthday party.
