Denver native Aileen Marcus died on February 4, 2023. She was 98. A service was held on February 7, 2023 at Mount Nebo Cemetery, officiated by Rabbi Yaakov Chaitkovsky. Feldman Mortuary handled the arrangements.

Mrs. Marcus grew up on Denver’s West Side. She graduated from East High School in 1941.

Majoring in accounting at CU, Mrs. Marcus was a member of the school’s honorary accounting fraternity, Beta Gamma Sigma, which at the time had very few women members. She graduated from CU in 1945.

Five years later she married Marvin Marcus. They were married 63 years before Mr. Marcus’ passing in 2013.

“She was kind, highly intelligent and cared deeply for her family and friends,” her family said. “She demonstrated strength, character and love throughout her life.”

Survivors are sons Fred (Rosemary) Marcus and Jeff Marcus.

“She was the matriarch of a much larger family of cousins, nieces and nephews who all truly loved her,” her family said.
