August 29, 1939 - November 8, 2017
In a list of the things we learned from our mother, we would include: reading a good novel can cure anything, a deep appreciation of Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow and Helen Reddy, and that she was WAY scarier than dealing with the police. Our mother, Margene “Jean” McDonough Green England Larson, left this mortal coil to snuggle up with a good book in paradise. She was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 29, 1939 and left us on November 8, 2017 at the ripe old age of 79. Waiting to hang out with her in paradise is our brother, her oldest son, Jim England, her parents, Virginia Simmons, Clayton Edwin Green and Joe Simmons and many friends. During her younger years, she occupied her time by working at Cottonwood Hospital, raising 5 children and serving an LDS mission with her husband in Antioch, California, not necessarily in that order. Mom was always willing to hang out with the kids in the neighborhood, cruise with her daughters by a boyfriend’s house, or hold “club”. She loved her family, her friends and a good novel. Her husband of 49.5 years, Sterling Larson, and her 4 surviving children, Richard England (Sharon), Paul England, Lorrie Keller (Robert) and Jennifer Bergman (Robert), will miss her greatly, as will her little sister, Sam Farris. She will be remembered for cheating at canasta, eating all the skin of the Thanksgiving turkey before dinner and kicking cancer in the butt three times over the years. She will live on in legend to her 13 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren. She was known by Jean, Margene, Jeanie Weenie, Nana, Sister Larson, and most importantly…Mom. We love you mom. A funeral will be held in her honor on November 13, 2017 at the LDS Chapel on 5913 South Highland Drive at 11 AM. There will be a viewing for 1 hour before the funeral at the same location. She will be buried in Richmond Utah.
