More than 101 years ago, Margo Fleming was born on February 5, 1918, in Alma, Nebraska, to Edna & Frank Tunks. When she was 3, the family moved to Wiggins, Colorado, to homestead a farm. She graduated from Wiggins High School (a senior class of 9 students) in 1934. She lived and worked in Fort Morgan for a few years, enjoying the single life going to dances and shows as often as possible. She met Lt. Marvin (Doc) Fleming in Fort Morgan. They were married in Missoula, Montana, on February 2, 1942. While Doc was serving in World War II, Margo became a Rosie the Riveter, helping to build battle ships for the war effort. They were married for 70 years during which they travelled all over the world.
After she retired from her secretarial position in a financial services company, she volunteered at Silver Key driving people to and from appointments and with Meals on Wheels providing meals to house-bound people. She really enjoyed doing both!
Margo passed away peacefully in her sleep on November 6, 2019. She is survived by her children, Mark Fleming, Linda (Tom) Camblin, Teddi (Bob) Vollaire; 5 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
A Funeral Service will be held 10AM Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at the Shrine of Remembrance, 1730 E. Fountain Blvd.
