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.

This Obituary Has 4 Condolences

  1. Margo was a member of the Little Chapel of the Hills church for many years. That’s where I met her and Doc.
    In 1997 I suffered a stroke and was in the hospital almost a month. Margo picked me up from the hospital and took me to church (in Florissant, at the time). When I was sent home and was able, she went from C.S. to Divide to pick me up and went back to C.S. to help me clean a client’s home. She went way out of her way, and I was SO grateful !
    She was a dear friend to many. One of God’s hands on helpers.

  2. Margo was a remarkable woman. What a life she had, a 70 year marriage children, grandchildren and lived to know her great grandchildren. She and Doc traveled the world. They did more than so many others did.
    She was also very special to me.
    She was my second mom. She taught me (who was really a kind of a wild child) how to behave in the world, and for that I will be forever grateful. I love you dearly Margo and will miss you.

  3. Margo, I absolutely LOVED your sense of humor. I have enjoyed your stories to no end. You have truly lived an amazing life~ My heart was blessed by the care and love of your family. You are forever in my heart,

    Your ring buddy, Andrea Heisler (Good Life Senior Care)
