Allie Telinde

Alexandra Gabrielle Telinde (née Parentice-Aleff) passed away from heart failure in Grand Junction, Colorado, on October 25, 2022, with family members by her side.

Born in West Bend, Wisconsin, on March 9, 1992, Allie moved west to Colorado and spent her childhood years on the Colorado Western Slope and in Moab, Utah.

Friends and strangers alike were drawn to Allie’s empathy and tender heart. She was kind, compassionate and giving to the less fortunate. She touched the lives of many in her community, dedicating personal efforts, energies and resources to Meals on Wheels (formerly Grey Gourmet) and Hope West.

Allie spent a lot of time with her family and friends in Grand Junction and taught her daughter, Elle, to be a good person. She loved her dogs and traveling to places with beautiful surroundings. 

She took pride in her professional life as a mortgage loan officer and owner of a small Airbnb business. She was respected by her peers and trusted and loved by her clients.

Allie is survived by her mother, Nina Parentice; her father, Jim Aleff; her daughter, Elle; her grandparents, Lynne and Jonathan Parentice; and her aunts, Debbie Aleff, Katie Parentice and Nicole Parentice.

Donations to Grand Rivers Humane Society (, Hope West (, or Meals on Wheels ( are appreciated, as well as any act of kindness toward the homeless.

Finally, like many, Allie struggled with mental health issues and alcohol dependence. Our hearts go out to others fighting these battles. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the above nonprofits.
