Born in Red Bluff, California on November 27th, 1931

Departed on May 14th, 2020 and resided in Aurora, Colorado

    Margaret Esther (Marge) Werner

    (1931-2020)

    Our sweet mother, grandmother, and friend passed away on May 14, 2020 in her home in Aurora, CO.

    Marge was born in Red Bluff, California on November 27th, 1931 and moved to Colorado as a young girl. She grew up in Colorado and graduated from Colorado State University.  In early age Marge had Rheumatic fever which forced her to be in bed for a year.  This experience helped shape her determination and zest for life.  She hiked all 58 of the 14ers in Colorado.

    Marge lived almost all of her life in Colorado where she loved the beautiful mountains, flowers, rock hunting, gardening and being close to her family.  Her family meant everything to her.  Her visits to the homes of her daughter and son’s families are memories that will always be cherished.

    Marge was there to support her family in both the good and the challenging times.  Anyone who knew her recognized how kind she was. She was always willing to lend a helping hand, rarely got angry or said a harsh word. Marge simply loved others and everyone loved her back. She will be dearly missed.

    Marge will be remembered with love by her daughter and son-in-law, Ann and Tom Stevens, son and daughter-in-law Rolf and Caroline Werner, son Kurt Werner, and son and daughter-in-law William and Zornitza Werner and several loving grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    Her wish was to be cremated and her ashes spread in the mountains by her family.

    Memorial contributions may be made in her name to the Denver Botanical Gardens or the Colorado Parks & Wildlife.

    Marge was one the absolute sweetest ladies I ever met.  I always enjoyed spending time with her and will remember how much she loved ginger, just like me.

    Marge was a wonderful, loving mother-in-law/friend, grandmother and great-grandmother.
    I know her faith in Jesus Christ carried her through many trials and I am assured of being with her again for eternity.

    I just feel fortunate to have been able to know and love this magnificent lady. Her heart, personality, and values were almost not of this world. Such joie de vivre! Such unconditional loving! Such unselfish embracing of life, friends and family, and the universe. She will be sorely sorely missed.

    We loved Marge and got to know her when she stayed with us in the mountains.  She was so gracious and loving. And thoughtful. We had good discussions and she thanked me one time after one discussion we had had that she had had a different perspective on from me…she said it made her change her mind. What a wonderful woman. She so appreciated sitting on our porch watching the hummingbirds and the sky.

    Aunt Margaret, 
    Remember all the adventures we shared so long ago? You always encouraged us kids to be curious about the world around us and for that, made us kind, compassionate and empathetic people. I thank you for that. You are a strong, independent and principled woman. We were lucky to have you in our lives. I am sad to say goodbye. I will cherish the memories we have and go forward from here spreading your love and kindness everywhere I go. You will always be remembered.
    Love always,
    Jay Neumann
