November 30, 1927 - April 21, 2014
Michiko "Margie" Matsui Taber passed away on April 21, 2014, at the age of 86.
Margie was born on November 30, 1927, in Osaka Fu, Japan. She resided there until she was united in marriage to Melvin Lewis Taber on October 10, 1955, in Tokyo, Japan. Margie then moved to the U.S. and was a long-time resident of Palisade, Colorado. She was employed at Ultronix, Inc as a bobbin maker for many years. After the closing of the facility she worked part-time at Taber Body Paint and Frame, and as a homemaker. Margie was active and worked almost daily until the time of her illness.
Margie had a wonderful sense of humor, was fun loving, and adventurous. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, sewing, knitting, crocheting, travel, shopping, and enjoying life. Margie's joy was infectious. She was greatly loved and will be deeply missed by many.
She was preceded in death by her father, Yasahachi Matsui; mother, Komiko Matsui; her husband, Melvin L. Taber; father-in-law, George W. Taber, and mother-in-law, Eva M. Taber. Margie is survived by her son, George M. Taber of Grand Junction, CO; her two daughters, Eva M. Waggoner of Palisade, CO, and Michiko "Mickey" Allen of Leslie, MO; three grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; three honorary grandchildren, in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends.
Special thanks are given to all of the staff at St. Mary's Hospital and the PARC at Larchwood Rehabilitation Center for their wonderful care, kindness, and support given to Margie and her family during her illness.
