Marjorie Lucille Duncan was born on a farm in Gibbon, Neb., on Dec. 19, 1917, and peacefully passed on at the Kingman Regional Medical Center on April 25, 2007. She was 89 years old.
In her younger years, she worked as a Harvey Girl, and when she was 16 years old, she served lunches on the train that still runs from Durango to Silverton, Colo.
She was married to the one true love of her life, Carl Duncan, in 1943, and raised his grandson, James.
Carl died in 1960. Margie never remarried but continued to love and take care of James until her death.
On Jan. 1, 1974, Margie and James moved to Kingman and took over the Kingman Bus Depot, which Margie ran until she retired in 1992.
Margie and James also owned the Star Theater, the Drive-In, the Clean Machine Car Wash, and a vending and amusement machine business while living in Kingman.
Margie is survived by her step-grandson, James Stull (Sue); and adopted granddaughter, Cynthia Ogburn (Larry); her adopted great-granddaughter, Kara Ogburn, all of Kingman; another step-grandson, Larry Stull, and his children, Sean and Megan, of Grand Junction, Colo.; a step-great-grandson, Ricky Stull of Whitewater, Colo.; and another step-grandson, Warren Stull (Gina) and their children, Anastasia and Courtney.
