September 29, 1929 - May 5, 2021
Marjorie Gates, 91, of Eaton, passed away on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, at Windsong at Northridge Nursing Facility in Greeley. She was born September 29, 1929, in Boulder, Colorado, to Neil & Ruth (Vinger) Davis. She was a 1947 graduate of Fort Lupton High School and went on to attend Colorado State College of Education. She later worked at the Fort Lupton High School as a librarian until she retired in 1995. Prior to finishing her education, Marjorie worked at the Star Theatre in Fort Lupton as a ticket taker. It was there that she met Jimmie J. Gates. He would ride the bus from Platteville to see a show, but mostly to see Marjorie. They married on May 12, 1951, in Greeley and were married for 51 years. Marjorie enjoyed knitting and crocheting. She made many blankets, hats, mittens, sweaters and did needlepoint tablecloths. She loved reading, doing crossword puzzles, and her exercise classes at Bonell Good Samaritan. She was a member of Faith Lutheran Church in Eaton and the Order of Eastern Star in Fort Lupton. Marjorie’s greatest joy in her life was her children and grandchildren. She would often say, “the best times in her life were with her children and her family.” She is survived by her sons, Bruce (Margie) Gates of San Luis Rey, California, David Gates of Greeley, Colorado, and Kevin (Margaret) Gates of Denver, Colorado, a daughter, Jane (Mike) Martin of Eaton, Colorado, 6 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jimmie Gates, her parents, Neil & Ruth Davis, a son, Eric Gates, a sister, Elizabeth Pappas, and a brother-in-law, Mike Pappas. Our family would like to say a Special Thank You to Bristol Hospice, especially Kaitlyn, Chaplain Hope, and Wendy, for their unconditional care for our mother and the love they provided for her throughout her journey. Also, a Special Thank You to Windsong at Northridge Memory Care Staff for their constant care, love, and support for our mother, especially during this past year when our family could not be there in person. Graveside services will be 10:00 a.m. Monday, May 10, 2021, at Hillside Cemetery in Fort Lupton. The family will host an open house following the Graveside Service at Jane and Mike Martin 35347 CR 39 Eaton Colorado from 1: 00 to 4:00.
