Margaret Lucille Fernstrom Welling 1909 ~ 2011Comment on this story
Margaret Lucille Fernstrom Welling passed away May 5, 2011 in Salt Lake City, UT. She was born in Salt Lake City, UT on June 23, 1909 to Charles Martin and Margaret Ruth Fernstrom. In 1942 she married John Voss Welling in Pocatello, ID. Margaret was a member of the LDS church and lived her entire 101 3/4 years in Salt Lake City. She was an Executive Secretary during her working years at EIMCO and Bankers Life Insurance Company. When her children were young she spent many volunteer hours in Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and working in PTA's. She enjoyed playing Bridge with friends and reading, keeping well informed on current events up to the end of her life. To many who knew her, her strength and determination made her an enigma, especially considering the great independence shown throughout her whole life. She is survived by her son David (Michele) Welling; daughter Anne (Paul) McKinley; grandchildren Suzanne M. Hales, Derrick (Kylie) Welling, Stacey M. (Bruce) Pike, Tyson (Kristen) Welling, Carisa W. (Troy) Holzer; and soon to be sixteen great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, parents, brother and sister-in-law, and great-grandson. As a family we would like to thank everyone with Coventry Assisted Living and Sunbrook Hospice for their friendship and kindness to Margaret. She will miss all of her friends. Private funeral services will be held at her request.
