Margo McBride Krusi was born at home in Hyrum, Utah on October 1, 1933 and passed away at her home in Hyde Park, Utah, September 28, 2021. She was the third daughter of Bill and Flora Jensen McBride. Margo grew up with her older sisters Jeri and JoyAnne and younger brother Jeff. As a child she liked to go fishing with her dad and learned to swim in Hyrum Dam. After a lot of swim lessons by her dad she became the youngest person to swim across the dam at age 11. Margo graduated from USU with an elementary education teaching degree in 1956.She also met her future husband, Fred Krusi. Margo taught school until the birth of her first child, her daughter Barbie. She later went back to teaching when her kids were mostly grown, teaching second grade at Woodruff Elementary and Wilson Elementary in Logan, Utah. In the summers through college Margo worked in Wyoming, first in Yellowstone National Park, and later she spent many summers in Grand Teton National Park. She loved hiking in the Tetons on her days off. One of her favorite accomplishments was climbing the Grand Teton. Margo and Fred built a home in Hyde Park so Fred could farm along with teaching school. The family grew there when John, Greg, and Peter were born. Margo had many associations in Hyde Park through the Variety Club, The Starlighters Square Dancing Club, and with church friends and neighbors. Margo loved growing sweet peas and had a beautiful raspberry patch. She loved horses and liked to ride with Fred and the family in the hills and canyons above Hyde Park. Mostly she loved collie dogs. We like to think that she was greeted in heaven by her beloved collies. Her latest collie Shane has been a very special friend and guardian to her for the past 7 years. Margo and Fred liked to travel and they vacationed every year. The adventures stopped in 2010 when Fred passed away suddenly at the age of 77. Margo has missed him every day since. Margo is preceded in death by her parents, and grandson Gabe Krusi. She is also preceded in death by her sisters and their husbands, Jeri McBride Woodward (Clair), JoyAnne McBride Regenthal (Al). She is survived by her brother Jeff McBride (Barbara) , daughter Barbie (Don) Corbridge, and sons John (Hollee) Krusi, Greg (Ann) Krusi, and Pete (Angela) Krusi, 19 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Funeral services will be held Tuesday October 5, 2021 at the LDS Northwest Church 480 North 100 West. Hyde Park at 11:00 with a visitation from 9:30-10:45 that same day.
