Artist & Educator:
"A favorite quote of Margaret's was: "You use a glass mirror to see your face, you use the arts to see your soul."

Our beloved mother, Margaret Taylor Heywood, 92, died January 14, 2004 at her Salt Lake City home attended by her daughters, a granddaughter, Emma Roach, and valued health assistant, Liliana Smouse.

She was born March 17, 1911 in Provo, Utah to John Whitaker Taylor and Eliza Roxie Welling Taylor (the fourth plural wife). She was the last surviving child of 36 children. She married David Heywood in Panguitch, Utah in 1939. They were separated only by his death in March 2002.

A graduate of LDS Business College and BYU, with graduate studies in art at USC, and the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington DC, she worked for many years as a junior high and high school English teacher, first in Panguitch, Utah, and later for the Davis County School District.

Following her retirement from teaching, she returned to her first field of interest and became a noted artist. She was a member of the Utah Watercolor Society, the Intermountain Society of Artists, and other local art groups. Her work is in both private and public collections including the Springville Museum of Art and the Utah County Art Collection.

She was a woman of strong character with a great sense of style.

Survived by her children, David Michael (Mary Martineau) Heywood, Vancouver, WA; Patricia Margaret Chiu, Provo; Roxie Jane Heywood, Salt Lake City, Mary Kathryn (Bill) Roach, Salt Lake City; 17 grandchildren, and 20 great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Trudy (Ben) Heywood of Logan; and brother-in-law, Andy (Pearl) Anderson, Bloomington, IL. Preceded in death by her husband, and infant son, Arthur W. Heywood.

Funeral services will be Tuesday, Jan. 20, at 2 p.m., at Larkin Mortuary, 260 E. South Temple, where family and friends may call 45 minutes prior to services. She will be buried next to her beloved husband, at the Salt Lake City Cemetery.

Mom, you had a bright and amazing soul.

My dear friend and artist co-worker, you have been missed so much. We had wonderful art days together. It won't be long and maybe we can paint together again.
