Deputies visit 94-year-old Colorado woman who was spending Christmas home alone

/

MORGAN, CO –  A phone call error on Christmas Eve brought Morgan County deputies to the home of an elderly woman and what happened next was nothing short of Christmas magic.

On Christmas Eve, Deputy Jesus Ramirez was dispatched to a welfare check related to a 911 hangup. When he arrived, he learned that a 94-year-old female accidentally dialed 911 while attempting to contact her insurance company. He determined that everything was okay.

While talking to the elderly woman, Deputy Ramirez learned that she would be spending Christmas Day, alone, at her home.  On Christmas Day, Deputy Ramirez organized a couple of officers to go with him to spend some time visiting with the elderly woman and wish her a Merry Christmas.


Deputy Ramirez joined the Sheriff’s Office, after graduating from the POST academy at Flatrock Training Center in 2019.

“He has excelled in every area of his job and we frequently get compliments, from citizens, regarding their interaction with Ramirez,” the department said. “He is always one of the first to volunteer to support community events. The concern and compassion that he displayed for this elderly woman is typical of what we see from him on a daily basis. Deputy Ramirez exemplifies the values of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office.”
