Margaret Ann Sanders

Amory – Margaret Ann Sanders, 84, met her Savior face to face and was reunited with her husband and daughter, on Wednesday, March 9, 2022. She was born on March 15, 1937, in Itta Bena, MS, to the late Paul Jones and Connie Redd Stafford.

Margaret grew up in LeFlore County, MS, and eventually moved with her family to Monroe County and attended Becker High School. She married the love of her life Harold Loyd Sanders on May 8, 1954, and together they were blessed with four children. Margaret was a loving wife, caring mother, and wonderful grandmother and great grandmother. She helped support her family by working in the Garment Industry for many years as a seamstress. Above all her accomplishments in life, she would have told you that she was most proud of raising her fine family.

She loved the Lord and showed her faith daily, by always putting others before herself. Margaret was a servant, always taking care of people in need. Her ministry was her cooking, she loved to have family and friends over while feeding everyone delicious home cooked meals. So many great family gatherings took place at her home through the years. Margaret was a member of Becker Baptist Church and her smile was always a welcome greeting to others in her church.

The solid rock of her family, Margaret blessed her family so much through the years with her wisdom, love, and multitude of wonderful memories. She will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved her.
