Margaret  Memories of Margaret "Sanders" Waterlyn

Margaret Sanders Waterlyn 6/15/1927 ~ 11/6/2010 Margaret Sanders Waterlyn, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt, whose life was defined by a deep love for and commitment to her faith, family and friends, passed away from natural causes at her home on the 6th of November 2010. Margaret, the youngest child of John and Lettie Pearl Davis Sanders, was born on the 15th of June 1927 in Salt Lake City, graduated from Granite High School and attended Brigham Young University where she met her future husband A. Verdon (Don) Waterlyn. Margaret and Don were sealed in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple on the 31st of May 1950 and celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this year. They are the parents of Vicki Lee Jensen (Barry), twins Ronald Stewart Waterlyn (Kelly) and Richard Verdon Waterlyn, and Wendy Waterlyn-Martin (Greg). Margaret was preceded in death by her siblings John Stewart Sanders, Kenneth Reed Sanders and Virginia Sanders Knell and daughter Vicki Waterlyn Jensen; survived by sister LuRee Sanders Ottley (Wayne) and husband Don. Margaret was an active, lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many callings including decades in the Young Women's program and was well known for having written and directed multiple plays and Road Show productions. Margaret's musical talents included performing as a vocal soloist on numerous special occasions. Professionally Margaret had a long and varied career. She began as the secretary to LeGrand Richards (Presiding Bishop of the LDS Church), worked many years for the accounting firm Lincoln Kelly and concluded her career after more than 20 years as the International Student Exchange Advisor at the University of Utah; Margaret was honored upon her retirement in 2007 at the age of 80 as the oldest active U of U employee. Margaret was a lifelong connoisseur of experiencing life to its fullest, whether that meant sampling far away countries, cultures and cuisines (which she did frequently on behalf of the University of Utah), meeting, befriending and oftentimes providing a room and board in her home for her international students (this in addition to countless hours of compassionate service dedicated to friends and family), or cheering at the top of her lungs before, during and after her and Don's long tenure as BYU football season ticket holders. Because of Margaret's sincere interest in and genuine care for people her list of friends and acquaintances is remarkable in its scope and diversity. A viewing for family and friends will be held on Friday the 12th of November, 2010 from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary, 3401 South Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, UT. 84106 An additional viewing will be held on Saturday the 13th of November 2010 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at East Millcreek Stake Center, 3103 East Craig Drive (3600 South), Salt Lake City, UT. 84109 Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. at East Millcreek Stake Center. Interment will follow at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park, 3401 South Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, UT. 84106
