Margaret (Margie) Louise Morris of Provo, Utah, peacefully and serenely passed through the veil and stepped into the Light and Beauty of Paradise on June 29, 2021 as she was surrounded by her daughter, son-in-law, and her nurse. \n\nMargie was born in Ogden, Utah on May 7, 1933 to Mary and Earl Morris. She was the ninth of eleven children. She lovingly raised two children and has been rewarded with six grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Margie was a sweet, dear mother and grandmother and always had a special way of caring that touched other lives for good. She selflessly gave of her goodness in countless ways with the purest of intentions. She was truly a gorgeous living angel on earth. Her character and integrity in how she lived her mortal life is now being witnessed in Heaven. Margie had a wonderful sense of humor and quick wit that was a delight to many. She was spunky and fun to be around, with a laugh that was contagious and endearing, and a smile that always lit up the room. She was a great influence upon those she associated with.\n\nWhile raising and loving her children, Margie was also an accomplished artist who developed her talents at a very young age. Margie graduated from Ogden High School. Later in life she attended Weber State College for three years taking a variety of art classes in which the professors often felt she should be teaching them. She had a uniquely creative mind that astounded those around her. Margie was highly recognized in the art community and routinely featured in numerous articles through various newspapers and publications. Her artwork was in exhibits, galleries, and fairs throughout Utah from which she received much recognition and many awards. She loved painting portraits, particularly Native American. She worked in many mediums—oil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, and ink. Her paintings were always full of life and vibrancy, which brought feelings of awe and inspiration to all who were exposed to them. She magnified the many artistic talents that God gave her and it brought her happiness to be creative. Her unique imagination was endless and she could create something out of nothing, often designing fun whimsical characters. She also sculpted, painted murals, and taught herself how to make beautiful stained glass designs. Not enough can be said about the impact she had in the art community. She was greatly admired and people looked up to her incredible ingenuity.\n\nReading was another one of Margie's favorite passions. She had countless books and was very intelligent. She did considerable research on a variety of subjects. She loved to learn about how to expand your thinking. She was especially interested in reading about topics that included spiritual self-improvement, quantum physics, and articles regarding new technology in science. She was fascinated about the mysteries of the mind. Besides her other many interests, Margie also enjoyed swimming, golfing, bowling, music, singing, cooking, and travel. \n\nEndowed with a lovely pure spiritual essence, Margie was a firm believer in Christ and the afterlife. One of her favorite sayings was 'With God, All Things are Possible'. Many of her writings contain her thoughts on matters regarding God and she enjoyed associating with those who had similar feelings and inspirations. She had an inquisitive mind, loved having spiritual discussions, and enjoyed church and all those she was involved with there. Her devotion to loving Christ was evident in her actions. \n\nWhile Margie's central talent was being a multidimensional freelance artist, she also worked with great proficiency in other capacities over the years. She was a co-publisher of the Roy, Riverdale, and Clearfield, Utah directories (1963-1980). She also worked as an extracting clerk at the IRS (1975-1976). Margie taught art at Sand Ridge Junior High School and found great joy interacting with the students, along with developing art programs (1969-1973). She kept herself involved in many different community activities. Margie was a member of the Roy City Beautification Committee, the Roy City Recreational Complex Committee, the Board of Directors of the Ogden K-Anns, League of Women Voters, the Bertha Eccles Hall Exhibition Committee, the Ogden Palette Club, the Utah Watercolor Society, and was a 'Pink Lady' at McKay Dee Hospital. \n\nWhen all is said and done, aside from all of Margie's many skills and talents, the element that sums up the most about her life and holds the highest worth, was the true unselfish love she had for both of her children and her grandchildren. Wonderful memories of her pure love are held by all. She was willing to be there for her children unconditionally and freely gave of her time and support. This brought her the greatest joy which she will carry into the eternities as the most endearing and highest degree of her character. She was so very loved in return and deserved every bit of it. \n\nMargie's two children, Rick (Nolie) Call of Dallas, Texas, and Carol Call (Bruce) Lee of Provo, Utah, survive her, including her six grandchildren and four great-grandsons. She was preceded in death by both her parents and nine siblings, and is survived by one brother, Dave (Pat). Her life was an example to emulate and there are no words to express how immensely she will be missed—a void that is impossible to fill. Margie's spirit lives on and will still touch lives for good from the other side of the veil. We are confident that she is surrounded in the glorious Light of Christ, family, and experiencing new things we can't even imagine. She is surely smiling upon all those who showered her in ongoing love, loyalty, support, and care during her mortal journey. Till we meet again, sweet one... \n\nThe Memorial Service and Celebration of Life for Margie will be held on July 21, 2021 at 11 a.m. at Nelson Family Mortuary (4780 N. University Avenue, Provo, Utah). Interment will be in Provo City Cemetery.
