Margaret Kay Stringham, born January 21, 1938 to Phillip Cavarly Hulme and Helen Isabell Cutts in San Francisco, California. Died unexpectedly on August 17, 2017. She was 79. Known to most as Marge she was a loving mother and will be missed dearly by all. She was a very self-sacrificing mother raising her sons while occasionally, unknown to them, going without food to provide for her sons.

Throughout the years, Marge was employed by ATL in California and Boeing Aircraft Company in Washington with numerous duties including as an Executive Secretary.

Married to Dennis Stringham on July 30, 1993 at Ucluelet, Vancouver Island, Canada, and later at the Mormon Temple in Bellevue, Washington, For Time and All Eternity. They made their home in Snohomish, Washington until January 1, 2016 when they moved to Emery, Utah.

She was a tireless worker, strived to keep an immaculate home and yard with her numerous cats supervising her efforts and their antics lightening her load. Very possessive of her lawn mowers and a dedicated weed destroyer. (And occasionally frustrated that her husband could not keep up with her.)

She is survived by Dennis Swayne Stringham, Husband of Emery, Utah and her oldest son, Michael Melvin Elvsaas, (wife Patty) of Redmond, Oregon. Grandchildren: Michael Grenz, Marshall Grenz, Daniel Grenz, all from California and Heidi James of Oregon. Great grandchildren: Aden Kekoahanohano Grenz, Hunter Kaponokahoapiliwainhiamai Grenz, Noheakealoha Emalia Elizabeth Grenz, all from California. Step-daughters: Deborah Lynn Stringham of California, Michelle D. Stringham, and great granddaughter, Melody Marino of Utah.
