MARGIE REINART METZLER
Margie Reinart Metzler was born July 24, 1932 at Okeene, Oklahoma and passed away Wednesday May 20, 2020 at the age of 87.
Margie graduated from St. Mary’s Catholic School in Okeene, Oklahoma and was a lifetime member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Okeene.
Margie married her high school sweetheart, Joseph Pfaff in Okeene on September 9, 1952 and moved to Denver, Colorado soon after. Joe was the love of her life and together they had three children; Debbie, Diane, and Kevin. While in Denver, Margie worked in a doctor’s office and also became a cosmetologist. Sadly, Joe passed away in 1963 and Margie took on the responsibility for raising the children who were always her first priority throughout the rest of her life.
Margie loved sewing, quilting, gardening and decorating and one of her most endearing features was the infectious smile that was always present on her face. Everyone she met always commented on her sweet smile and gentle nature. She will always be remembered for that sweet smile.
Margie is survived by her three children; Debbie (Terry) Ott of Scenic, Arizona, Diane (Gary) Carpenter of Lakewood, Colorado, and Kevin (Dana) Pfaff of Okarche, Oklahoma. She has six grandchildren; Ben Krieger, Dan Krieger, Sarah Carpenter, Brittany McCracken, Tyler Pfaff and Kyle Pfaff.
