Margie Virginia Wursten Peterson, 40, peacefully transitioned from this life to the next on January 24, 2024, surrounded by her family in her Layton, Utah home.
Margie was born on October 20, 1983, to Allan and Tamera Wursten in Ogden, Utah. She was the only daughter but had 4 adoring brothers: Dale (Pily), Kelvin (Sharon), Derek (Samantha) and Nathan (Michelle) Wursten. She grew up in Farmington, UT on the coziest street where she experienced a childhood nothing short of magical. She graduated from Davis High School in 2002.
Margie was married to the love of her life Travis John Peterson on June 4, 2005, and they spent 18 beautiful years together full of love and laughter. They have 4 beautiful children Lincoln 16, Bennett 14, Trenna 11, and Hazel 5.
Her greatest joy was her family, whom she loved with everything she had. Some of Margie’s greatest joys were Maverik runs with Travis, watching her kids play sports, dinner date nights and a really good cinnamon roll. She completed her training as a hair stylist in 2012 and worked out of her home for the next 5 years creating beautiful friendships that will never be forgotten. In 2019, Margie along with her friend and business partner April Stettler created Busy Bee Co which has nurtured a love of cooking, sewing and art for the youth in her community.
She was an inspiration to everyone as she bravely battled cancer, but it was never a fair fight. We like to think Margie won the battle because as soon as her soul left her body the cancer died leaving her soul free to exist in its true form full of power and beauty.
Margie leaves behind a vast army of loved ones who have shown up for her in the most beautiful ways. Margie and Travis will be forever grateful for the endless acts of love shown to their family throughout this difficult journey. Margie paid a high price to see the best of humanity and love, it turns out it was all about love the entire time.
The Peterson’s would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses at Huntsman Cancer Institute, Utah Cancer Specialists and the specialty group at IHC. They worked tirelessly to give her the best care possible.
A viewing will be held at Lindquist’s Kaysville Mortuary, 400 Main St., Kaysville, Utah on Sunday January 28, 2024 from 4 to 8 p.m. as well as Monday the 29, 2024 from 9:00 to10:30 a.m. followed by the interment at the Kaysville City Cemetery at 11:00 a.m.
