Georgann Marx

February 22, 1952 — April 25, 2024

Aurora, Colorado

Georgann Marx passed away in Aurora, Colorado on April 25th, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. 

Georgann (Gigi to her grandchildren) was born on February 22nd, 1952, to Rita and Russell Marx in Chicago, IL. She grew up on the southside of Chicago, attending parochial schools. She earned a BA in Physical Education at the University of Illinois, a Doctor of Chiropractic at National University of Health Sciences, and a Masters of Physiology at the University of Denver.

After completing her chiropractic studies, she pointed her Toyota Corolla, with the rusty luggage rack, to the west and ended up in Denver, CO.  Dr. Marx operated a chiropractic practice in Aurora for 20 years, while raising four sons and pursuing her physiology degree.  She loved to help people, serving as a substitute teacher (to keep an eye on her boys) and as a gate agent for Skywest Airlines and United Airlines.

Her hobbies included tennis, pickle ball, golf, cooking, crocheting, running/walking and traveling.  One of her favorite activities was completing workbooks with her grandchildren, as well as teaching them to play tennis and swimming.  She was one of the volunteer managers of the Meadow Hills Ladies Wednesday Morning 9-Hole Golf League. Furthermore, she delivered holy communion to numerous parish members who could not attend church services.

Georgann bravely battled cancer for five and a half years with amazing grace and strength.  Not allowing the disease to slow her down, she traveled to Alaska, Greece, Madrid, London, Ireland, Geneva, the Czech Republic, France, Monaco, and countless US cities.  She attended Wimbledon, the US Open, and the Cincinnati Southern & Western Tennis Tournament.

Georgann was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister-in-law, and friend to all who knew her.

Georgann is survived by her loving husband of 38 years Don Clem; sons Russell (Jessie), Don E., George (Taleen) and Peter; grandchildren Aubrey, Sam, Lucy and Jack; sister Rita Guardi (Peter), brother Ed Marx; sister-in-law Deb Fox; nephews Bob Guardi (Jen) and Andrew Guardi (Jamie); niece Carly Guardi; and seven grandnieces.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Queen of Peace Parish in Aurora, CO.

A celebration of life will be held at Horan and McConaty Funeral Home, 11150 East Dartmouth Avenue, Aurora, CO 80014, on Sunday, June 9th, 2024, at 10:00 AM.
