Mary Margaret Ludwig
April 13, 1977 – March 28, 2021
Mary Margaret Ludwig passed away in her home in Platteville, Colorado on March 28, 2021 at the age of 43.
Mary was born on April 13, 1977 in Englewood, Colorado to Warren Lee Graf and Felicitas Ludwig at Swedish Medical Center in Denver.
Mary grew up in Denver. She attended Ellis Elementary for grades kindergarten through 3rd and then Harrington School for 4th and 5th grade. She then went to Merrill Middle School for grades 6 and 7, and then finished her 8th grade year at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School. She obtained her high school diploma from Bishop Machebeuf Catholic High School.
After high school, she moved to Arkansas and completed her Pharmacy Technician Certification. While she lived in Arkansas, she had her only son, Bailey Ludwig with Christopher “Chris” Koller. She eventually moved back to Denver to raise her son. In doing so, she attended Everest College and earned a certificate in Medical Assisting. From there, she pursued dermatology careers all around the North Metro Denver Area. She was most recently employed at UCHealth in the dermatology field as a MOHS Micrographic Technician.
She grew up Catholic and became a bigger believer in her later years. Although her relationship with God wasn’t always present, we always felt she knew He was always with her.
Her hobbies included cooking, spending time with her family, enjoying the outdoors and traveling. Her favorite season was summer and no matter where she lived, she would always find a way to a pool, to lounge, read a book and get a sun tan. The country that she most often visited and was her absolute favorite, was Mexico, especially exploring all of its culture and surrounding areas. She had also been to Paris, the Domincan Republic and most recently Singapore, where she spent 7 months going on adventures, making friends and living her life to the fullest.
When she returned from Singapore, she lived with her son, his wife, Molly, and her grandson Boyd “Bo” Warren Ludwig, who she adored and loved very much.
Mary was a compassionate, kind, caring soul with a fiery wildside. She was always up for an adventure. She would do anything for anyone no matter what the circumstances were. She would make friends wherever she would go and it spoke volumes to her character. Her wild soul and adventurous spirit will be deeply missed, but will live on in her family and friends across the world.
Mary is preceded in death by her mother Felicitas Ludwig, her grandmother Virginia Graf and many friends. She is survived by her son Bailey, daughter-in-law Molly Collins, her grandson Boyd “Bo” Ludwig, her father Warren “Gary” Graf, her sister Teresa Ludwig and niece Riley Delfeld, her sister Nicole Ludwig and nephew Brandon Ludwig and numerous cousins.
An Open House Visitation is scheduled for Friday, April 9, 2021 from 3:00pm - 6:00pm at Ahlberg Funeral Chapel in Longmont, CO.

Where to begin....
Mary and I went back many a years thru some very good times and some hardships. The years always seems to fly by and would here from her now and then and she always asked me how was I doing? How is your family?
I cannot begin to express the sadness I feel for Bailey and family knowing how much Mary loved them.
I write this with heavy heart as we have had to say goodbye .....
She will be missed dearly by many....
People are brought into and out of our lives for many reasons we will never understand....
All there is to say is rest my friend.....we love you may you find eternal peace.

I met Mary when she moved to Singapore. I worked at the Serviced Apartments where she stayed. We soon formed a friendship and we had wonderful conversations. Had a lot of fun hanging out together. Thanks for the memories Mary. Rest In Peace.

I don’t know where to begin, but I would never forget your kindness. Met her for the first time in the Oakwood rooftop, where she did her favorite thing to do in Singapore: sunbathing! We did a lot of adventures together, we became a good friend that always supported and encouraged each others. Eventhough your promises to me already broken now, but I will always remember and pray for you. Love you from Indonesia. See you in another life!

The first time I met you, the first thing I saw was your smile and from then on I knew that you were a very beautiful person in heart and soul. Now I know that an Angel returned to heaven to shine and see that reflection of your smile from Heaven.
