Margo Lynn Decot
January 22, 1987 ‒ January 05, 2021
Margo L. Decot, age 33 of Powell, Ohio passed into the Lord’s arms on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, at Ohio State University Hospital after a six-month illness. Margo fought a battle that probably no one could believe possible. In addition to battling her autoimmune disease which destroyed her kidneys and damaged many other organs, she contacted COVID while in the hospital which made it very difficult for her to heal. The hospital nurses and doctors gave her their very best. But in the end, God rescued her and took her home. No more pain and suffering.
Margo was born on January 22, 1987, in Columbus, Ohio to Laura and George Decot. She was a 2005 graduate of Olentangy Liberty High School and a graduate of The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in History. History was her favorite subject. Margo worked as a substitute teacher for Olentangy Local School district. Many of her days as a substitute teacher were spent at Olentangy Meadows Elementary where she was embraced by students and staff. Whenever a sub was needed, she would come in on a moment’s notice and be there bright and early. That was Margo!
Margo loved spending time with her family on short trips, going to Amish country, and had planned a trip for this summer down Route 66. She was adventurous and much fun to be with. Margo also loved animals and cherished the memory of her dachshund, Elvis. She had been working on writing a book about her dog Elvis. She was known to love Art and loved making drawings and art projects. She had won many blue ribbons for projects at Delaware and the Ohio State Fair. Margo also loved serving her community by working on the elections at every opportunity.
She loved working in the garden outdoors and was known for the many hot peppers she grew, and nice tomatoes! In the summer there were flowerpots growing favorite seeds she had purchased at shops on their weekend trips.
Margo was a believer in Jesus and attended Orange Friends Church.
Margo is survived by her mother, Laura Decot, brother Dustin of Powell; father George and stepmother Cammy of Columbus, Ohio; grandfather, Curtis “Butch” Cutler and friend Joy Rockwell of Sunbury; Special Aunt, Elizabeth Kinney and daughters; Uncle Curtis (Jana) Cutler of Westerville; and many Cutler cousins. Also survived by Grandfather Richard and Rose Decot of Edinburg, Texas, three Uncles, Kelvin (Kelly), Gary and Kevin Decot, and many cousins.
She was preceded in death by Grandmother Patsy Cutler and Uncle Larry Cutler.
Margo was a warrior who fought the fight, kept the faith, finished the race, and received the crown.
She will be missed by all who knew her. Her sweet, warm personality, infectious smile, and wonderful sense of humor will forever be in our hearts.
A memorial service is planned for Summer, 2021.
The Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center in Delaware and her grandfather Curtis Cutler will be handling arrangements. If you wish, donations can be made toward funeral expenses, which can be forwarded to Curtis Cutler, 2212 Common Bent Drive, Sunbury, Ohio 43074.
