'Marge'

Margerete Herger Karagas, 81, of Boulder, Colorado, passed away peacefully on March 24, 2018, at her home with her children and grandchildren in attendance.

Marge was born to Emery Craig and Victoria Howard, December 12, 1936, in Detroit, Michigan.  She graduated from Lincoln Park High School and spent the early years of her life in the Detroit area.  In 1969, she and her family moved to Boulder, CO to start a new chapter. They soon founded My Brothers Bar, The Wazee Lounge and Supper Club, along with other businesses in downtown Denver. During this time, Marge was an active homemaker, raising her children and making an annual trip back to Michigan to spend the summer with friends and family.

She married the late Joseph Herger in 1991, and after an initial adventure sailing the East Coast and the Florida Keys they settled back in Boulder and owned and operated Joes Spoon until their retirement.  Marge loved traveling, entertaining friends and family, reading her mystery novels and watching her crime shows.

She is survived by her son, Kevin Quintero of Boulder. Her daughter, Demi Karagas of Copenhagen, Denmark. Grandson Zenos Karagas, Granddaughters Gabrielle Fialla, and Liv Karagas, all of Copenhagen, Denmark.  Her brothers David Craig (Linda), Gregory Craig; her sisters Madelyn (the late Tony) Taylor, Nancy (Gene) Crain and Bonnie (Russ) Eichold.  Her cousin Judith Brousseau Julian. Many nephews, nieces, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her brother Antone Craig and sisters Sharon Farmsworth and Diana Craig.
