“Today’s Family,” Ensign, Apr. 1971, 77–79
Meet Sister Margrit Lohner. She sings beautifully! She directs choruses with artistry and enthusiasm! She specializes in Swiss cookery! And she can organize and plan anything from a year-long MIA centennial celebration to a week-long Laurelife conference.
Here we share another of Margrit’s talents with you. She adapts exclusive patterns and makes beautiful wearing apparel for the members of her family, using lace and embroidered trims from European shops.
Margrit was born of Latter-day Saint parents in Zurich, Switzerland, and was active from the age of fourteen in the branch organizations. She came to Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1940 with her husband, Werner Lohner, and their baby. Today Margrit and her husband have three children and seven grandchildren.

Wheat Storage Bedside Tables
May Olsen writes to suggest to Bernice Kentner [January, p. 92] that another round of wood from the lumber dealer, cut to fit the inside of the bottom rim of the storage can, with three or four castors attached, would make the storage bin-bedside table moveable.
