Obituary of Margaret Guidinger

Margaret (Peggy) Christensen Guidinger

Margaret Christensen Guidinger passed away on March 28, 2022, at the age of 91.

Mom was born on August 21, 1930, in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Marion and Ellen Christensen. She spent her childhood in Idaho Falls and graduated from Idaho Falls High School. She married her sweetheart, Ed Guidinger in February 1949 and began welcoming children; Bob (Jayne), Nic (Lois), Pat (David), and Gary (Barb).

Mom was very active in church, singing in choir, teaching Sunday school, and was very active in women’s group in church. She enjoyed sewing, knitting, and reading. Many of the family received beautiful clothing created by mom and she loved to share books she had read.

We have heard repeatedly how mom touched the lives of many who knew her.

Mom is survived by her four children, their spouses, fourteen grandchildren, many great and great-great grandchildren, a sister-in-law Naida Christensen, and many loving nieces and nephews. Mom’s greatest joy was her family. She was always the happiest when she could spend time with them, to see pictures and wish them happy birthdays on Facebook.   

A memorial will be held in September and interment will take place at Rose Hill Cemetery in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

Donations may be made to Idaho Public Television and the Ronald McDonald house.
