Margi Sathi, one of the finest exponents of Koodiyattom and Nangiarkoothu, passed away on 1 December 2015 at the Regional Cancer Centre in Thiruvananthapuram. She was 50. She is survived by a daughter and a son.

She was considered as the doyenne of the exotic dance form of Nangiarkoothu, an offshoot of Koodiyattam which is an ancient temple art form.
