Unfortunately there isn't an obituary volunteer for this county and I don't live in the state. I'd suggest you do a Google search for the Colfax County Public Library and see if they'll do an obituary search and copy it for you.
Another possible source is the Raton Museum, Roger Sanchez, 505-445-8979.
I found the following info.
In 1930 Marie was living in Denver, Denver, CO.
Marie Leith, b. WY, 28, widow, PBX operator.
Milicent, dau, b. CO, 8.
In 1940 Millicent was living in Denver.

Millicent C. Leith, b. CO, 18, single, neice, educ-high school 4 yrs, no occ listed.
Julia Angell, 51, lodger.
I also found the Michaelis-Allison-Pawson-et al. family tree, trees.ancestry.com/tree/10939391/person/-554407378 which contains the Pawson family.
They show that Emma died about 1908 in Cheyenne, Laramie, WY with the following notation. "Mother indicates in the 1910 Census that only 10 of 15 children are still alive, and we know who all 10 of those are. Also in 1910, Emma's daughter May is being raised by her grandparents in Denver, Colorado." Successful Searching!
