Margaret Morgan England, 86, passed away peacefully Tuesday, Jan. 01, 2002 at Sunshine Terrace in Logan, UT.

She was born Jan. 27, 1915 in Logan to Joseph and Mary Margaret Clarkson Morgan, the youngest of eight children. She married Rex Hatch England on Dec. 21, 1939 in the Logan LDS Temple. They were later divorced.

She graduated from Logan High School, received a BA from Utah State Agricultural College in 1937, and a teaching certificate from the University of Idaho. She was active in theater and drama. After completing her education, she taught High School English in Idaho for several years.

She returned to teaching in 1957 in the Salt Lake School District, later becoming a resource specialist for reading. She was well known for her love and dedication in teaching disadvantaged students to read. She retired from the Salt Lake School District 21 years later in 1978.

She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She held many positions in the church, most prominently those that served the children. She was a member of the Rose Park Stake (Salt Lake City) primary presidency for 17 years. After her retirement, she returned to Logan. In Logan, she served as a Relief Society teacher and as a name extraction missionary. In 1982 she was called to serve a full-time mission in the Mississippi Jackson Mission. Mardy loved genealogy work, faithfully searching and keeping records for many years. After she returned from her mission, she fulfilled a life-long dream, traveling to Wales and England to continue searching for information about her ancestors.
