Margaret Ann Howells

April 5, 1949 — March 7, 2023

St George

Margaret (Maggie) A. Howells, beloved Great Grandma, Grandmother, Mother, Spouse, Sister and friend to all, passed from this life suddenly while sleeping on March 7, 2023. All who knew her are welcome to an Open Mic Memorial service to from 10 AM to Noon on Friday, March 17 at the Hughes Mortuary in St. George, Utah. In lieu of flowers, Maggie would prefer a donation to your local homeless shelter, foodbank or ‘at risk’ shelter for those escaping from abusive situations. These things were very close to her heart while living her compassionate life.

Many around the country know her for her efforts in these matters as her husband Michael T. Howells (surviving) dragged her from coast to coast during his career in electronics manufacturing. At each place we stopped, she found paying work in high level Administration Assistant positions and immediately inserted herself in multiple charitable activities wherever she was, starting at home. Maggie loved the Savior and following his example she is known to have a home that was filled with love, for anyone who needed it, from family, friends, missionaries, and anyone else. Having learned to quilt from her Grandmother Romrell, she delighted all her life in gifting the fruits of her favorite pastime to Veteran’s Homes, homeless shelters, etc. She had the specific satisfaction to have made it possible for new babies from Maryland to Washington State and all places in between to snuggle into her handmade baby blankets delivered to various NICU’s on a monthly basis.

Maggie was born in Magna, Utah on April 5, 1949, to parents Aaron Dee Doxford and Della Jeanne Doxford (Romrell) who are now both deceased. She was a 1967 graduate of Cyprus High School in Magna, Utah and has faithfully maintained contact thru the years with her rowdy favorite classmates since Whitter Elementary School in Hunter, Utah, known notoriously as the “Bible Sisters.” As always, Maggie valued the people in her life more than any “stuff,” and is always an inclusive soul.

Maggie is survived by her siblings Judy Searle, Peggy Johnson, Larry Doxford, and Joe Doxford. Her children; Florence Fallis, Katheryn McKeon (Rick), Amy Mullings (Curtis Williams), Jason Howells, Leah Bills, Matthew Howells, Mikal Ann Howells, Annabel Hernandez (Cesar) and Jimmy Honihan. Grandchildren; Tyler Fallis, Stefanie Barone (Nico McDaniel), Katie Fallis, Robert McKeon (Elayna), Jessica Potter (Zebulan), Noelle Fallis, Brooke Lynn Russo, Caleb Patrick McKeon, Shambre Bills. Great Grandchildren Nico, Brooklyn, and Maya McDaniel. Also her faithful mutt, Marley. Maggie has many cousins and family spread throughout the Intermountain West, across the country, and several international locations.

She will be missed by all of those who loved her, especially the love of her life (Mike), her children, and the people that brought her the most joy in her life her Grandchildren, and her Great Grandchildren.
