I also posted this reply on the Unknown Colorado board also.
From The Colorado Marriage Index.
There only 3 Dallabetta's that married in CO between 1858-1939
Dallabetta, Angelo Poier, Lucia 11 Mar 1930 La Plata 1502
Dallabetta, Maria Tomasi, Jim 13 Aug 1921 La Plata 324
Dallabetta, Teresa Lorenzi, Wiliam C. 11 May 1922 La Plata 412
I look at the Teresa that married William Lorenzi.
There is a Teresa Lorenzi that passed away in Delta,CO in 1974.
I found no Lorenzi's in the Delta area right now.
I found this on what I believe is a relative. There should be enough info for you to contact the family.

Mrs. Candelaria was born in Durango to Angelo and Lucia Mattivi Dallabetta on July 13, 1939. Her father and mother both immigrated to the United States from Italy. Her father worked in the mines around Durango and Silverton and then became a businessman and real estate broker. Mr. Dallabetta acquired the land on the Animas River that the family later donated to the city of Durango. It is now Dallabetta Park. Her mother helped her father run the Southern Hotel until her death in 1963.
Mrs. Candelaria attended Park Elementary, St. Columba and Durango High schools.
She and her friends enjoyed climbing the mountains around Durango when she was young. The friendships she made as a young girl lasted her entire life.
Mrs. Candelaria attended the University of Northern Colorado and Fort Lewis College, where she earned her teaching degree. After graduation, she began a long career in special education at Mason Elementary, Park Elementary and Needham Elementary schools. Her family said one of her greatest joys was helping her students grow into adulthood, and many still remember her as an inspiration from grade school.
In 1956, she married Dave Candelaria. He died in 1983. She later married R.J. "Mac" McMullen, who preceded her in death in 1999.
During her life she traveled extensively, including visits to Italy, Australia, South America and across the United States. After retiring from teaching, she moved to California, where she volunteered at the schools her grandchildren attended. She enjoyed teaching, and by doing so raised and nurtured a lot of children.
She made new friends, but kept in contact with her friends in Durango and visited them frequently. She also maintained contact with relatives still living in Italy. Wherever she lived, she always considered Durango her home.
Her family said she instilled in her children a love of travel and taught them the power of family and friendships.
Mrs. Candelaria is survived by her sons David Dallabetta Candelaria, of Grants Pass, Ore., and Craig Dal Dean Candelaria, of Newport Beach, Calif.; five grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A rosary will be recited at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec.21, 2008,at St. Columba Catholic Church. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 22, 2008, also at St. Columba. Burial will be held after at Greenmount Cemetery. A reception will be held after at the St. Columba Parish Hall.
