Margaret Lucille Nolin was born August 9, 1920 in Greeley, CO to Ernest and Nellie (Mullen) Payne, the oldest of six children and the only daughter. Jesus called her home on Sunday February 10, 2019 after a brief illness.
She lived a long happy life and will be missed by many. After graduation from Greeley High School in 1938, she met her future husband Walter B. Nolin. Their wedding took place on October 26, 1938. From that union came three children, Gary, Patricia and Art. Margaret was a homemaker but after the children were grown, she enrolled in beauty school and became a licensed cosmetologist. For several years prior to that, she had given haircuts and permanents to several of her friends. She was able to work for 52 years, having started her career on her 40th birthday.
While being a faithful servant to her church and community, Margaret was a member of the Christian Congregational Church and many times would bake and serve refreshments to her congregation. She was an honorary member of the Greeley Hospital Auxiliary and had volunteered for an amazing 25,000 hours. In addition, she belonged to numerous other clubs in the area.
Crafts were one of her many skills and she made many clothing and jewelry items to sell at local bazaars. Many friends and family were treated to her homemade rum cakes at gatherings, especially before watching a televised Bronco game.
Margaret is survived by her children Gary (Nancy) Nolin, Patricia Nelson and Art (Cindy) Nolin, seven grandchildren; Rodney Nelson, Donn Nolin, Ronn Nolin, Randy Nolin, Steven Nolin, Becky Nolin and Derek Nolin. She was also blessed by 12 great grandchildren and six great-great grandchildren, with one due at any time.
She is preceded in death by her husband, parents, siblings and granddaughter Cathy.
