Marjorie Janis Page Oberholtzer
passed away in Rifle, CO on October
26, 2011. Marge was born
on April 19, 1927 in Del Norte,
CO, the daughter of Lloyd and
Beulah Page. Marge married Jack
Gredig (deceased) and had two
daughters; Cynthia Lynn Anderson
of Falls Church, VA, and Claudia Sue Means of Buffalo, WY.
In 1960, she married Carol Oberholtzer and acquired three
step-children; Carol Ann Cantrell of Plano, TX, Sharon Kay Compton
of Paonia, CO and C. Edward Oberholtzer of Norwalk, CN.
Carl and Marge made their home in Vista, CA, then Marble Falls,
TX and then retired to Rifle, CO. Marge loved to play golf and she
became a very active member of the Women's Organization at Rifle
Creek Golf Course, serving as its president for several years. She
founded the Three-Day Invitational Tournament and served as its
chairman for a number of years. She was Club Champion several
times, and won many amateur tournaments around the country over
the years.
Marge was a very active and devoted member of the Rifle United
Methodist Presbyterian Church, serving on its Board of Trustees and
Finance Committee. She was a mainstay in the United Methodist
Women's group, serving as its president and using her gifts of organization,
hospitality and creativity to make their many functions
very unique and special. She was well-known for her gift of decorating,
spending countless hours designing and hand making the
many "theme" items she liked to use.
In addition to church and golf, Marge was an avid gardener. She
spent hours each summer planting and tending her flower gardens
and her cascading pools where she kept her beautiful koi fish. She
also loved to play cards and was a formidable opponent!
Marge will be remembered and loved by those fortunate enough to
have known her for her quiet generosity and positive outlook on life;
her unconditional love and loyalty to friends and family, and her
deep and abiding faith in God.
Marge leaves behind her two daughters, three step-children, 10
grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 4th at 11
a.m at the Rifle United Methodist Presbyterian Church. Officiating
will be Pastor Rich Stoakes, dear friend to Marge and her family.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Rifle United
Methodist Presbyterian Church, 200 E 4th St., Rifle, CO 81650.
