Margie M. Duff, 97, of Denver, passed away on November 28, 2023. Margie was born in Pass Christian, Mississippi, on August 5, 1928. She married Howard J. Duff from Brooklyn, New York in 1950 and they embarked on a great adventure as Howard’s military assignments took them and their family to Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, England and throughout the US. They settled in Aurora, Colorado in 1978 and eventually shared over 58 years together.
She was a remarkable woman, who always managed to juggle the needs of family and friends, officer’s spouse “duties” and frequent relocation while maintaining a healthy, wonderful, and loving home. She enjoyed experiencing new cultures and what they had to offer: local traditions, cuisine, theater, and music to name a few.
Margie was a devout Roman Catholic and an active member of Queen of Peace Parish in Aurora, Colorado since 1978. She took her religion to heart as she was always concerned with the welfare of others and would go out of her way to make sure everyone was okay and had what they needed. She always had kind things to say about others.
A wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, she is survived by her children, Patrick, Maureen, Kevin, Gary, Lisa, and Christopher; nine grandchildren, and five great grandchildren.
