Margit was born on September 14th, 1921 to Henry and Esther Johnson in Idaho Falls, Idaho. She is one of eight siblings who grew up enduring the hardships of farm life during the great depression, experience which shaped a life devoted to family, faith, and service to others.\r\n \r\nFollowing in her older sisters’ footsteps, she moved to Salt Lake City to attend LDS Business College. Shortly thereafter, Margit was called to serve a mission to Sweden for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was there she met her loving eternal companion, Melvin R. Blomquist. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on March 18, 1949.\r\n \r\nOver the decades spanning a lifetime, their adventures in life took them from Utah, to California, and back to Utah again which they considered home. Margit served her many church callings with dedication and cheerful resolve. Most importantly, Margit loved being a homemaker for her family. When she had time outside of domestic duties, she loved to garden, sew, quilt, and crochet. We will always treasure the creations she left us.\r\n \r\nMargit is survived by four of her five children and their spouses: Steven (Lori), Dennis, Marlene (Brent Peterson), and Evan (Mala) Milan, her third son died in infancy in 1957 from a heart defect. She is also survived by brother Grant Johnson. Buoyed by family and a strong belief in eternal life, the day has finally arrived for Margit to re-unite with her husband, son and great grandson, Dawson, who preceded her in death. Margit is the grand matriarch of 15 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren, all of whom she adored.\r\n \r\nTo have known Margit, as her child, as a relative, as a friend, was to experience sublime love. We will miss her warm smile, laughter, and words of encouragement, but we also take heart that she is no longer coping with the frustrations of a body that she had thoroughly exhausted.\r\n \r\nA public viewing will be held Monday, November 30 from 6 to 8 pm at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 South State Street, Murray, Utah. A private funeral service will be livestreamed on Tuesday, December 1 starting at 10:45 a.m. www.jenkins-soffe.com Interment at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park.
