Margaret Little

1967 ~ 2022

Margaret Little, age 55, passed away July 26, 2022 at Avalon Woodland Park Care Center in Millcreek. Utah. Perhaps she wanted to go hike Ensign Peak for the anniversary. She wasn’t one to be on time, she didn’t see the need in it, but she did that day getting up before 5pm the only way she could. Her heart stopped beating.

Margaret was born March 12, 1967, at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City to Neils Clove and Margaret Ruth Phelps Little.

Margaret loved talking to people. That was her hobby. She also loved her turkey and cheese sandwich and yogurt before bed. She loved to hug children. She said if they didn’t need a hug, then their hug-o-meter was full. A lot of people at Avalon Woodland Park Care will miss her very much. She won an election as President of the Resident Council without even campaigning. People knew she would help them. Once coming back from the hospital, she had a lady waiting till she was settled to help her with a problem.

Margaret graduated from South High School in Salt Lake City in 1985 where she was in the Key Club, orchestra and sang Acapella. She went to the Senior Prom with friend Lance Langton. She graduated from LDS Business College with an associate degree in Medical Assisting. She went to help a neighbor who needed help and a lady working with her suggested she become a Certified Nurses Nursing Assistant (CNA). She went to Salt Lake Community College. She worked for Applegate Home Health Care. She worked there 13 years before she got a really bad case of lymphedema. She went to Woodland Park Care Center and was there eight and a half years. She almost died twice of Acute Respiratory Failure.

She is survived by many who’ve loved her including: her sister Marlene Little, and lots of cousins, multitudes of friends and adopted family. She was preceded in death by her parents and her friend Andy Eugene Osborne at Woodland Park.

Services will be held on Saturday, August 6th at 12 noon with a viewing 1 hour prior at Salt Lake Cannon Stake Center, 934 Fremont Ave, Salt Lake City, UT 84104. There will also be a visitation from 6 to 8 PM on August 5th at Larkin Mortuary on 260 E South Temple Salt Lake City, UT 84111.

Our condolences to Margaret's sister, Marlene, family, and friends. Margaret liked music and singing. She used to come and sing Sacred Harp shape note hymns at the Utah Sacred Harp singings. She always had a smile and was happy to share music with people. She is probably singing in the heavenly choruses.

Marlene,I am so sorry to hear about Margaret passing. She was a great friend very helpful. I will never forget all the singles activities and dance we went to together. I think the most fun was having you both help me with my costume for the Wizard of Oz. Any times we spent together were some of the best times. She was a sweetheart 💕. She will be deeply missed

Margaret and I played in orchestra and sang in choir together. She was my roommate when we went to Hawaii for choir. Since high school, she has been the one who could tell me what was going on with all of my former classmates and she would always surprise me with how much she remembered from high school. She kept us all together, volunteering for reunions and keeping all those connections Maybe she did want to hike to Ensign Peak! Now she is free to hike anywhere she wants and the rest of us will have to learn to keep in touch on our own.

Sweet Margaret, you will be missed. I will always remember your laughter. You were always a great example to everyone around you and always lending a helpful hand.

Margaret and I grew up together from primary, through elementary, and all through high school. She was always so happy and positive with such a bubbly personality. We lost touch after I moved away, but I’m lucky I was able to visit her last summer and reconnect. Her sweet spirit will be missed. I know she’s free of worldly pains and is dancing in heaven with her parents and loved ones. Twirl on Margaret.

Margaret has been my dear friend since kindergarten. She loved to tease me. A few years ago she said I was a friend she could ask questions to. I loved her questions. Always a surprise when I got an email from Margaret. I'll miss your questions and even more, I'll miss you!!

- Melinda Midgley Hale

So very for your loss of Margaret. My thoughts and prayers will be you Marlene.
