Margie Kay Cornia

July 6, 1965 — September 14, 2022


Margie Kay Cornia, 57, was born on July 6, 1965, to Kay B. Cornia and Sarah Jones Cornia in Salt Lake City, Utah. Margie lived and grew up in South Salt Lake and then later moved to Murray, Utah. Margie bravely fought a 10-month battle with cancer and passed away on September 14, 2022.


Margie’s three nieces, three nephews-in-law, four grand-nieces, and four grand-nephews were the joy of her life. Margie was generous and kind and was always looking for gifts to make people smile. She had a witty sense of humor and could sing many old-time songs that her dad taught her when she was a young girl.


Cats were Margie’s love and she adopted two shelter cats, Lucy and Betty, named after her two favorite comedians, Lucy O’Ball and Betty White. Those two cats had a wonderful life with Margie, eating the best cat food, superior care, and toys galore.


One of her favorite hobbies was counted cross stitch and she made many beautiful pieces. She loved the Utah Jazz and could tell you stats about many players through the years from Karl Malone to Rudy Gobert. Her favorite singer was Michael Jackson. She loved gardening, planting flowers in the yard, and collecting houseplants. She said her house was a jungle, and it proved to be so with the many orchids she grew. She loved to exercise and was, in her words, an exercise nut.


Margie spoke about being reunited with her dad and aunt Maxine. Although we miss her, we know she is in a much better place without pain and suffering. She is survived by her mom, Sarah Cornia; sister and brother-in-law, Rose and Kip Turnbow; brother and sister-in-law, Mickey and Pam Cornia; nieces and nephews: Leslie and Mike Tonks, Kelly and Nathan Gonino, Kristina and Cory Partridge; grand-nieces and grand nephews: Emma, Kara, Jonathan, Ellie, Robby, Lily-Ann, William, and Noah. Other survivors include aunts, uncles, and cousins.


No funeral services will be conducted.
