Margie Jeffers Obituary


Margie Fulscher Jeffers, 102, of Holyoke, CO, passed away Monday, October 23, 2023 at Regent Park Nursing Home in Holyoke, CO.  A memorial service will be held Friday, November 10, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. at Bauke Funeral Home. (1220 SW Interocean Drive in Holyoke, CO.) Rev. Kurt Hatteberg will be officiating. Inurnment will be held at the Holyoke Cemetery for family only.

Margie Hope Jeffers was born August 31, 1921, in Yuma, CO, to John & Chloe (Sherman) Nell. The family relocated to Haxtun, CO, when Margie was four.  She attended elementary and high  school in Haxtun.

On February 11, 1939, Margie was united in marriage to Max Fulscher of Amherst, CO. Their union was blessed with four children: Janice Sullivan, Gary Fulscher, Kathryn (Weiss) Warner, Kristine Fulscher. Soon after their marriage they bought a small ranch in the mountains near Hot Sulphur Springs, CO. Their home had no running water or electricity. Their first child was born in this home by the light of a kerosene lamp. They would often drive to Denver to hear big band music at the Trocadero Ballroom at Elitch Gardens. Margie spoke of many good memories from this time.

In 1943, they sold the ranch and moved to the Fulscher Hereford ranch near Amherst, CO, where she and Max raised registered Herefords, farmed and raised their children. Margie was an active member of WIFE (Women Involved in Farm Economics) for many years. She traveled to Washington D.C. during the Carter Administration to advocate for farmers. She was also a longtime member of the Jolly Neighbor Club in Sedgwick County.

After Max’s passing in 1983, Margie continued to run the ranch and farming businesses. She found love and companionship again marrying Percy Travis of Holyoke, CO, and after his passing, Clyde Jeffers of Haxtun, CO. She enjoyed her life with both of these husbands and their families.

Margie was a longtime Denver Bronco fan.  Before watching every game, she donned her various Bronco apparel to support her favorite team. Margie loved the music of the 30s, 40s and 50s. She knew the lyrics to dozens of songs. The oldies channel on her satellite radio was a constant background in her home.

The most important thing to Margie was her family.  She hosted many holiday gatherings and family reunions. Her family threw a roaring 20’s themed party for her 102nd birthday. She said that was the highlight of her life. She was once asked what she attributed her long life to. She thought for a moment then replied… “Sticky Buns.” Margie will be remembered for her great sense of humor, her generosity with family and friends and her infectious smile. She will be greatly missed by all.

Margie is survived by her daughter Kristine Fulscher and son-in-law Joe Hall of Amherst, CO; daughter-in-law Mary Fulscher of Amherst, CO; grandchildren, Patrick (Tracy) Senstock, Greeley, CO; Roger (Stephanie) Senstock, Casper, WY; Stacy Fulscher, Amherst, CO; Jodi (Lance) Howitt, Sidney, NE; Laurie (Kyle) Kohlschmidt, Sidney, NE; Heath (Deann) Weiss, Paoli, CO; Lisa Wieland, Sterling, CO.  She is also survived by eleven great-grandchildren, six great-great grandchildren, and 2 great-great-great grandchildren. 

Margie was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Max; son, Gary Fulscher; daughters, Janice Sullivan and Kathy Warner; sister, Wilma Fraley; great granddaughter, Robyn Howitt; and husbands Percy Travis and Clyde Jeffers.
