Our angel smiled and waved to us, “Until we meet again, I’ll be watching,” she whispered. She sweetly smiled and blew a kiss, waved as she departed to her next adventure.
Marilyn was born on September 23, 1942 or possibly 1986, since she was only twenty nine. On February 20, 1974 she married her wonderful, sweet, soul mate David Lee Pedersen. They enjoyed one another for 42 years. A love like theirs is eternal and envied. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake City Temple, May 20, 1984.
She was a loving wife, friend and “mother” to everyone. She adopted our friends, her friends, as well as their children, grandchildren and their animals. She loved everything and everyone! Once you met her you had likely been adopted into her family.
She worked hard throughout her life from waitressing, computer manufacturing, Sheriff’s Department, attended Snow College and enjoyed helping Special needs children. Most of the kids who knew her called her GRAMMY. She had a candy drawer and a dollar for every child. Folks incarcerated and in her words had “good in them” and she expected them to do better.
She cared for everyone who needed help. She fought hard for anyone she met and gave support and encouragement to help them make their lives better. Never, ever make her mad or create an injustice – she was a fighter and would stand up for what she believed. She cared for everyone who needed help. Her husband supported in these endeavors and was always at her side. Their love and example in life can be an example to all. She taught everyone to care for people in spite of their differences or views. We can all learn from her legacy.
Marilyn and David had five sassy overbearing children, Brett (Christy), Deborah, Brandon, John (Shari), Ryan Lee (Holly). She had 11 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren, two beautiful sisters Bonnie (Dean) and Norma (Daryl), in laws, Eddie and Bessie Pedersen, and Nadine Christensen. Too many nieces and nephews, that we didn’t have enough toes to count them all.
Her new adventure companions are her parents Lawrence and Marcell Poulson, In Laws Edwin and Eva Mae Pedersen, Brothers Keith and Junior, brother in law Ron Christensen, grandchildren A.J. and Angela Dahl.
A viewing will be held Sunday, January 10, 2016 at Rasmussen Mortuary, Mt. Pleasant, Utah. Funeral Services will be Monday, January 11, 2015 at 11:00 am at the Spring City First Ward Chapel in Spring City, Utah. A viewing will be held prior to services from 9:30 am to 10:30 am.

    With a very heavy heart, I say good bye to my “other” mother. I love you Marilyn. You will always hold a very special place in my heart. Thank you for all the years of kindness that you have shown to me and my family. The Angel choir just gained a new member. I loved singing with you. My deepest sympathies to all the family. May your hearts be comforted with the sweet memories that we all share. Gone, but never forgotten.
