Margaret was born in Idaho falls in 1931 to Thomas and Jennie Sutton. She married the love of her life, Dallas Nelson, in 1954 where they then were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. They had three children - Jena lee, Joni, and Alan.
Margaret’s life was full of service. She was a teacher for many years at South Davis junior high and volunteered at Lakeview hospital for many years. She served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at the Joseph Smith building for many years. She actually extended her mission twice because she loved it so so much. If you knew Margaret she would go out of her way to serve those around her.
She was known as the lollipop lady. Every Sunday she made sure she had a whole bunch of dum dum suckers and
"Can I get you something to eat?" all of the kids would come to her to say hello and she would give them a sucker. She loved to be involved in the kids lives in any way possible. One of her greatest passions was cooking. She loved to invite others over or cook for others in need. She was a fantastic lady that will be missed. God be with you until we meet again.

She was good bowling and best friends
So sorry for your loss. Your mother was such a gracious lady. Always so friendly and nice whenever we would run into each other. She will be missed.
Margaret always treated like one of her own. I was always welcome in her home and I felt her love for me as her daughters friend. You are amazing Margaret. Mom and dad will be excited to see you. Hugs and love to the family.
I volunteered at Lakeview with Margaret for the last 29 yrs. She volunteered for yrs before that. She volunteered with my mom at the little hospital on 400 East. Margaret scattered sunshine & smiles wherever she went! I love her & will miss her dearly! 😍. Our loss is heaven's gain!
So sorry for your loss. She was a great lady. The children, cats, and deer will miss her.
Margaret you where the best
Allways serving others.
