Obituary of Margo E. Tiller
Margo Tiller was born in Ames, Iowa, to Evelyn and Olav Tiller. She was preceded in death by her sister, Penne Ranglos, 1998, and son, Jeffery Carvell in 1987. She is survived by her son, Eric Carvell (Soan Chin, former daughter-in-law), Jade Tiller Meaux (Loren), four grandchildren: Bianca, Don, Christina Carvell and Avery Meaux and one great-grandson, Landon Hernandez, and numerous cousins and friends. Margo spent most of her life in Colorado, living in Estes Park, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Longmont. She also lived for a number of years on Maui in Hawaii loving that “Hang Loose” style of living. Throughout her adventurous life she worked as a non-profit administrator, pastoral associate, business owner, artist, and interior designer to name just a few. Among her many accomplishments we remember her best for: - her work with “The Friends for All Children” organization where she spent seven years raising money, procuring supplies, and assisting in organizing refugee resettlement during the Viet Nam and Cambodia exodus, helping transport and sponsor hundreds of families here in the United States; - her role as a founding Team Member of Spirit of Peace Catholic Community in Longmont where she ministered from 1982 – 1992. There, her primary responsibilities included: outreach, community action organizer, and facilitator for Catholic Social Justice Programs; - her involvement as part of the initial planning team for the OUR Center, and her enthusiasm in helping initiate the day care center, now known as the Aspen Center for Child Development; - her passion as a founding member of Light of Christ Ecumenical Catholic Community in Longmont, where she served in many capacities for the past fifteen years. To honor Margo, a Celebration of Life will be held at Light of Christ Ecumenical Catholic Community, Longmont, Colorado, date and time to be determined. For now, let us hold one another in tender care as we share stories, challenge one another to live passionately, and love with one another generously in Margo's honor. In lieu of flowers, it was Margo’s wish that memorial contributions be made to The Aspen Center for Child Development (formerly the OUR Child Care Center), in care of the OUR Center, 220 Collyer Street, Longmont, Colorado 80501.
