Margo Lynn Decot

January 22, 1987 ‒ January 05, 2021

Powell, Ohio

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.

  • To the family, I am deeply saddened that dear, sweet Margo had to endure what she did during the last 6 months of her too short life. As she well knew because of her love of family history, there are many many cousins. By far, Margo was one of the sweetest and best natured among us. What a wonderful person she was. Margo was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing her. She shall be sorely missed. Please keep her family in your prayers as they deal with her loss. Love you, Margo. Cousin Paula Carter-Jones

  • My heartfelt condolences to all of the family on the loss of their beautiful Margo Decot. Margo was so full of life and was always such a fun person to be around. Her sense of humor had me in stitches many times. To say we will miss her would be an understatement as the world will never be the same. In the few years that I have been around Margo I grew to love her more each day. Such a sweet, gentle soul.

    We watched as Margo suffered through these past six+ months, and my heart broke each day for what she had to endure at such a young age. But praise be to God that he rescued her. She now rests with Jesus, her Grandma Patsy, Uncle Larry, doggie Elvis and many other loved ones in heaven. She wears the crown of glory now. And in the blink of an eye we will see and be with that precious girl again thanks to God’s promises.

    To the family……Wishing you peace to bring you comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your heart.

    I Love you Margo……….always know that.

  • Donna, better known to all our family and myself, as Tiny, are both so saddened by the passing on to a much better place, of this dear young vibrant loved one in the prime of her life! Though our scores of prayers, through many tears were not answered in the way we fervently prayed, we are fully aware that God’s ways are so much higher than our ways and someday we will understand better His ways and the reasons for so many things. The obituary, written so well says more about her than we can ever enlarge on. We have seen and know how hard working she was toward helping Laura, and Grandpa Butch. We well know how sweet and loving and kind a person Margo was. We must all now keep Laura and George and Dustin especially in our prayers as their lives like ours must go on, and for all the family members too. I will pray that by this sad event we will all be drawn closer to Jesus with this huge reminder of the brevity of life!

  • To Margo’s family. Someone so special can never be forgotten. Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss.
    Aunt Alice

  • I was so saddened to read of Margo’s passing. I remember her well, as a 5 year old, in my Olentangy kindergarten class. She was such a sweet and dear student. I’m sure she will be deeply missed. May your loving memories keep her close.

    My sincerest sympathies to her family.
    Mrs. Fian Van Amburgh

  • Margo was a sweetheart, and so good at showing us the local history! We had looked forward to seeing more sites with her, Laura and Dustin, but it wasn’t meant to be, but I know that when Rick and I visit any historic sites, she will be with us always in spirit! Rest well Margo!

  • I am so sorry to hear of Margo’s passing. Margo was in my fifth grade class at Olentangy. I remember her sweet smile. I was happy to read Margo taught at Olentangy. I am sure she was a wonderful teacher. Margo will be missed by the staff and students at Olentangy Meadows. May your memories of sweet Margo bring you peace.
    With sympathy,
    Carol Trimble

  • My dear sweet Margo, I have faith that you are pain free, and are with your grandmother Patsy, and uncle Larry. You will never have to endure again what you experienced here. When you return to the new earth we will have that big reunion that you and I planned to have. Words can never say what I feel. We all tried so hard, but healing wasn’t meant to be. I am so sorry that I could not have done more. You have left many foot prints, and have touched many children with your teaching along the way. Elvis, and Buddy, are with you in spirit, and will never leave you. I love you and miss you more than you will ever know. Your memory will never leave me, and I for one will keep it alive. So as your motto says keep calm and wag on. Gramps Butch
