Marjorie "Margie" Elaine (Lallemand) MyersDecember 2, 1951 ~ November 29, 2017 (age 65)
On November 29, 2017, Margie Myers was taken peacefully by her right hand to her eternal home in Heaven to be wrapped in the arms of her Heavenly Father. She fought a tough and rapid battle with cancer, and was brave to the very end. Marjorie Elaine Lallemand was born to Andrew and Helen Lallemand in Canon City, Colorado. She graduated from high school there in 1970. The last 43 years she spent enjoying her life in the mountains around Durango, Colorado.
Margie was an independent and strong woman. She successfully ran three businesses over many years: Photography by Margie, Simpler Times Crafts Store, and Arts and Crafts Fair Productions (which just concluded its 43rd annual Christmas show). All her businesses displayed her talents, creativity, and her love for people of all ages. She loved gardening, the outdoors, photography, writing cards/letters for all occasions, journaling, poetry, reading, traveling, and being surrounded by friends and family.
Margie will always be remembered for her beautiful personal relationship with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, her kind and gentle smile, her seeing everyone and everything through the eyes of God, her adventurous spirit and love for traveling all over the world, and her always believing in people and their dreams/goals, especially encouraging her grandchildren to follow their hearts. She prayed over all her family faithfully for guidance and for them to shine their lights for Jesus wherever their journeys would lead them. Her biggest blessings were her two daughters and their families, as well as many lifelong, genuinely true friends from every walk of life. Margie always saw the beauty in everything around her, in God’s creation, in the hearts of people, and in her legacy and faithful example that will never be forgotten.
Margie is survived by her two daughters, Monica (Mark) Dixon of Montrose, CO and Trisha (Keith) Hickerson of Farmington, NM; her granddaughters, Allyssa and Kelsee Dixon, and Megan Hickerson; her grandson, Kyle Hickerson; her brothers, Wayne Lallemand of Canon City, CO, Larry (Denise) Lallemand of Canon City, and Dale Lallemand of Salida, CO; several nieces and a nephew, and many cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, Andrew and Helen Lallemand.
Her “Celebration of Life” will be held Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 3:30 p.m. at Pine Valley Church, 1328 CR 501, Bayfield, Colorado. Her daughters request that everyone dress bright and colorful to celebrate the life of their mom.
