Dob: 7/7/1939

Marjorie Marie (Bonds) Henderson, beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother
and Great-Great Grandmother drew her final breath on April 28, 2023.
She was born on July 7, 1939. She was raised in Fowler, CO and graduated from Fowler
High School. She was an avid sports fan, loved fishing, camping, gardening, sewing, cooking
and planning events.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Verne and Roseine Bonds; son, Rodney Kravig; brother, Jerry
Bonds; sisters, Joyce Switser and Sharon Fellhauer. Also preceded in death by grandson, TJ
Henderson; and son-in-Law, John Henderson.
Survived by three daughters, Julie Henderson, Vicki Reno and Brenda (Jimmie) Wills.
Marjorie had 11 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandson.
Mom had a special group of very close friends (The Pointer Sisters). They went on many trips
and adventures, met monthly for lunch to celebrate birthdays, and had their own Christmas
Mom had another “family” which was her family of sewing customers. She always said
she sewed for half of Pueblo. So many weddings, from the wedding dresses, mother of the
bride and entire wedding parties. She sewed for all the high schools, whether it was for
Chorals, Proms, Homecomings, cheerleaders or dancers. Anything from fancy dresses,
costumes, curtains, upholstery. There was nothing she could not make or fix. Her family,
friends and customers would buy clothing knowing that they did not fit because “Marj can fix
this”! Shorter, Longer, smaller, bigger, a new one just like it. So many just brought fabric and
an idea, Alterations were her favorites. When she got to a point that she “retired” her
sewing machine, she missed the customers most.
Marj also worked for and ran two local businesses, Larry’s Electric and Refrigeration
and ICM. She did everything from scheduling the guys to bidding the jobs. She had a way of
handling customers, Hot, Cold or Unhappy, that put them at ease and they would end up
thanking her and waiting patiently.
Mom had a special partner in Smidgeon, her miniature dachshund. Wherever she went,
Smidgeon went, (in her own car seat). Whenever some customers came, they brought
Smidgeon treats, some came just to see Smidgeon and she knew no strangers.
Mom will be missed by so so many people. She touched many lives in both of her
careers. Remember her, laugh, love and keep her alive in your hearts and memories as we will
be doing.

  1. We are so sorry to hear of Marj’s passing. Betty Abert (cousin) was deeply saddened to learn this. They were very close when Betty lived in Pueblo! They shared the same birthday which was always special to them!
    Our prayers are with you and all your family during this difficult time.
    We just learned this news last night and will not be able to attend the services.

  2. So very sorry to learn of Marge’s passing. She was such a joy to know and I always looked forward to seeing her. She did alterations for me for a number of years – she always asked about my family and we always talked about hers and her unquestionable love and pride in everyone. Loved that little Smidgeon for sure as well. She will be missed by all who knew her – my thoughts and prayers go out to all the family.

  3. What a wonderful person Margie was. She altered my “Santa and Mrs. Suits”, made me aprons and altered my dresses. I always enjoyed visiting with Margie. She would always talk about her daughters and grandchildren. She was always very proud of them. She was always a bundle of joy and always listened without judgement. Prayers for her family.

  4. Beautiful inside & out! Love you! One of the only family in my life who never gave up on me or left! ❤️ Til I see you again! ~EISA LaMae

  5. So glad you included Smidgeon tales in Marge’s obituary! Marge altered prom dresses and all kinds of apparel for my daughters and myself over the years. She always made us feel like family. I now have 2 doxies inspired by Smidgeon!! So thankful for Marge in our life story!

  6. Marj was such a joy to be around every time! Always smiling and laughing. Loved by many!

  7. Sending my condolences to the family of Margie. She was certainly a sweetheart and always happy!! She did many alterations of clothing for my family.
    God bless the family.
