Margie Cornell

1951 ~ 2020

Margie Cornell was born Freda Margaret Brewin in Stanton-under-Bardon, Leicestershire, England on July 18, 1951 to her parents Denis and Brenda Brewin. Margie had four brothers David, Peter, Norman and Christopher and one sister Pam. Margie joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and met her best friend Margi Ford at the Western Park branch. Margie met Darrell Knowles while he was on his mission in England and later moved to the United States when she was twenty where they married and had four daughters Diane, Julie (Robert), Wendy (Lee) and Kelly (Brian). Later they were divorced. Margie married Michael Cornell and they celebrated their 26th wedding anniversary this year and spent 27 years together. Margie loved her grandchildren Alisha, Tristan, Kaya, Tyler, Quincy, Zachary, Allison, Kacey and Sydni and her great grandchildren Mariah (who is in Heaven) Madisynn, Violet, Liam and Mylo (due next year). They will miss her very much.

Margie was a graduate of the Bryman School. Later she spent most years teaching Medical Assisting at various schools and was loved by her students and coworkers alike. She loved sunflowers, getting cards for every occasion, and watching English Premier League soccer (Go Foxes!) with Mike and their dog Brodie. Margie was known for her sense of humor and had many witty sayings like “don’t get your knickers in a twist”. Margie loved to cook for others and was well-known for her roast beef and Yorkshire pudding with gravy!

Margie is preceded in death by her father, mother, and granddaughter; mother-in-law June Bates; stepdaughter Michele; and her dog Odie.
Margie was a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and wife and will leave a huge hole in our hearts, though her memory will stay with us.

Diane, Julie, Wendy, and Kelly: I love you all and am so grateful to have such sweet memories with you. You are beautiful, brilliant, amazing women and I know your mom had to be so proud of each of you. You and your families with will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days to come.

I'm sad to see that Margie passed away. She was my teacher at Bryman School 30 years ago, I haven't seen or spoken to her since then, but she left a forever impression on me. She was such a good, fun teacher, but she also expected hard work and respect. I took that with me and that has helped me over the years in all I do.

My deepest condolences to her family!

John and I are deeply sorry at the passing of Margi. I worked with her for seven years and she lived a couple of streets away. I knew her Mum and Dad and her brothers and sister. She was 16 when she came to work in the office. I remember her meeting Daryl and her excitement of falling in love. Through all the years of living in Utah we stayed in touch. I have such lovely memories which I treasure. Love to all the family at this sad time xxxx
