Obituary

In loving honor, we would like to memorialize Theodore and Margo Bender, who were both taken from us this year.

Theodore Anthony Bender born July 4th, 1936 peacefully passed away on March 26th, 2020 while battling cancer. Margo Jane Bender (Gregg) born April 22nd, 1944 peacefully passed away on September 11th, 2020 after battling several long-term illnesses. They were both surrounded by family during their passing.

Ted and Margo were united in holy matrimony at Our Redeemer Church in Delavan, WI on August 16th, 1969. They celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary in 2019 with family. Ted was employed for several years at Alpine Valley, where he managed both the resort and the music theater. He later worked for the Delavan-Darien School District as head custodian, which he retired from. Ted also served in the Marines. Margo was a stay at home mom for many years and then went to work at Andes Candies in Delavan where she also retired from. During this time Ted and Margo purchased a bar on Delavan Lake called “HOME”.

They are survived by their two daughters Traci Bender, Tricia Markee (James). Their grandchildren Zachory Welch, Nicholas Welch, Channing Sanders, Jacob Casillas, Kimberly Clarke (Brendan), Nicole Thompson (Caitlin), Theodore Bender. Margo’s Brother Donald Gregg. Their nephews Brody Gregg (Jenn), and Ryan Gregg (Sarah). Along with 11 great grandkids and 6 great nieces and nephews.

Ted and Margo were deeply devoted to their family and friends. They are and always will be deeply missed.

A visitation will be held at the Betzer Funeral Home (118 S. 2nd St, Delavan) for both Ted and Margo from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 24, 2020.
