Mary Ellen Peats, 67, of Colorado Springs peacefully transitioned to Heaven on Saturday morning, July 16, 2022.  She was surrounded by family during this transition.
Mary was born on December 20, 1954 to the late Eldridge and Veneta Peats.  She had an older brother, Leslie Peats, who loved and doted on his sister until his death in 2018.  
Mary had the sweetest spirit and seldom complained despite her developmental disability, severe scoliosis and COPD.  She enjoyed track and swimming in her youth and participated multiple years in the Special Olympics, winning many medals and ribbons.  She enjoyed crocheting and making love knots in her later years.  Mary was a child of God and an amazing prayer warrior.  She prayed daily, without fail, for all of her family and friends as well as for our country.  Church, the Bible, praying and learning about God was a big part of Mary’s life.
Mary is survived by her niece, Tammy Peats Escue, and nephew, Edward Peats, and their families as well as her sisters-in-law, Hazel Peats and Janel Doyle.  She will be missed greatly by her family and her many close friends.  
Memorials in Mary’s name may be made to the Colorado Palliative & Hospice Care at 5445 Mark Dabling Blvd., Suite 205, Colorado Springs, CO  80918 or to the Colorado Special Olympics
