In Loving Memory of our Mom and Grandmother
SANCHEZ, Margaret Malinda
July 31, 1933 - May 26, 2014

Margaret was born in Lebanon, PA to Margaret May & Herbert W. Gingrich. She graduated from Lebanon High School. She later met and married Pedro Sanchez Jr., who has preceded her in death.

After having their first child, Francisco, they relocated to Sacramento, CA, settling in Gardenland, Del Paso Heights then North Sacramento Richardson Village. For many years, Margaret was a full-time stay- at-home Mom. When her children got older, she went to work in the elementary schools as a teacher's aide for 18 years.

Margaret had a loving presence. She was wise, kind, honest and fair... She was the exception, not the rule. She loved children and laughter, country music, black licorice, chocolate, baking, big rings when it came to jewelry, hats, reading and The SF Giants. Also, purple was her favorite color.

Margaret is survived by all her children; Francisco Sanchez, Lydia Carter and Rita Sanchez (the twins), Pedro Sanchez III, Felix Sanchez, Steven Sanchez and Patricia Sanchez in addition to several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Services will be held for Margaret Sanchez at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, Today, Saturday, June 21, 12:00 p.m., at 2331 Northview Dr., Sacramento, CA 95833.
