Margaret 'Peggy' Lorene Woock

July 9, 1946 — November 16, 2022



Margret “Peggy” Lorene (Wellman, Wadsworth) Woock passed away in Thornton, Colorado on November 23rd, 2022. She was 76 years old.


Margret is survived by her 5 children: Erica (Woock) Davis of Illinois; Gustava “Gussie” (Hoskins) Curtin of Illinois; Aaron Hoskins of Cortez; Evan Hoskins of Denver; and Margaret “Sidney” (Wellman) Weber of Broomfield; 8 grandchildren: Christian, Brooks, Grace, and Mimi Davis; August, Taika, and Petra Curtin; and Lucas Weber; and brothers: Larry Wadsworth of Chattanooga and Thomas Wadsworth of Hixson, Tennessee.


Margret was born July 9, 1946 in Denver to Joseph and Georgia “Lorene” Wellman (née Erikson). Joseph died when Margret and her brother Larry were quite young. Lorene later married Thomas Wadsworth and gave birth to their son Thomas in Chattanooga, Tennessee.


Margret graduated high school early and went to the University of Kentucky in Louisville. She met Rodger Woock there. They welcomed their daughter Erica in Denver in 1968. After divorcing, Margret and Larry Hoskins had 3 children; Gussie, Aaron, and Evan. They bought a farm in Cahone, Colorado and separated before Margret gave birth to a daughter, Sidney, with Jimmy Dean Butt.


Margret raised the 4 younger children alone on her remote and rugged property. She sustenance farmed the land, canned, sewed, did beadwork, and kept livestock and too many cats. She worked in social services fighting to improve people’s lives. She was an outsider, unconventional, and challengingly intellectual in a small community of farmers and cowboys.


Margret completed her bachelor’s degree in Durango then moved to Denver to work for Colorado Health Care Policy and Financing. She had heart failure in 2008 and retired. After a period of illness in 2021, she moved to a nursing home in Commerce City where she lived for the remainder of her life. Margret was cremated in Aurora.


Margret kept a beautiful flower garden and a houseful of happy cacti. She made gorgeous crafts and was an amazing cook. She had a scorching and bone-dry sense of humor. She was a ravenous reader, an aficionado of eccentric films, and music lover. She sang all the time, often obscure numbers and off-key. She loved the view from the front door of her house on the farm and in accordance with her wishes, her remains will be scattered there. Margret was brave, made with mettle and an independent spirit that was singular. She will be missed. We hope that some part of her shines through in those she left behind.
