April 7, 1921 - December 2, 2013
Marge Guffey, 92, passed away December 2, 2013, at Palisades Living Center.
Born in Denver, raised in the San Luis Valley, Marge lived in Denver for the entirety of her married life. She moved to Fruita after the death of her husband to be closer to family. She was an optimist thru and thru and content with the simpler things in life. She enjoyed gardening, swimming, traveling, writing poetry, singing and dancing. Her inner diva would have loved being on stage had the opportunity presented itself.
Marge always had a smile on her face and was always happy to lend a helping hand to others. She never lost her sense of humor in spite of the difficulty in dealing with Alzheimer's.
Her husband of 60 years, Dean, preceded her in death. She leaves behind three children, Michael in Canada; Mardean (Kay) Johnson in Fruita, and Lorie (Brian) Gregor in Fruita, and seven grandchildren.
Marge lived at the Commons for three years and spent the last year in the Palisades Living Center. Thank you to all the wonderful caregivers including HopeWest Hospice who gave of themselves selflessly to make our mother's life a little bit brighter. We think you made her feel special and you touched our hearts.
