Margaret Tuttle Goff Sanchez

Early Life: Margaret was born June 27, 1920, in Southampton, New York, to Edward Mowbray Tuttle and Viola Amorita Culver Tuttle. When she was five, Margaret moved to Glencoe, Illinois, where she grew up. In 1938, she graduated from New Trier Township High School, third in her class of 500.
Life's Work/Service/Interests: Following high school, Margaret attended Stanford University in California where she graduated with honors in English. After graduation, she married Robert Davis Goff. They had four children: Beatrice, Lawrence, Cedric and Roger. When her marriage ended, she worked at the University of Utah as department secretary of Mechanical Engineering while earning a Master’s degree in English Literature. She also completed work toward a Doctorate in English. In 1964, she moved her family to Provo, Utah, where she taught English at Brigham Young University. In 1968, Margaret married Sabino Enrique Sanchez Soto, from Peru, who took her to Houston, Texas, in 1973, and to Carlinville, Illinois, in 1975. In 1979, she returned to her home in Provo. As a young wife in California, she was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. An active and faithful member of the Church she had joined, her life centered on serving the Lord. She had many callings in the Church including Relief Society president and Provo Utah LDS Temple ordinance worker. She also served a senior mission to Carlsbad, California. She studied the scriptures daily throughout her life. Margaret researched her family history back to the founding fathers of our country and royal lines in Europe. She was precise in her work, carefully documenting her findings. She also authored and had published a book of her poetry, an autobiography as well as lineage books on both of her parents’ genealogies. She was active in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) from 1983 to 2011, and was an officer at both chapter and state levels including two years as State Chaplain. Margaret loved birds and was a charter member of the Utah County Birders. She combined this interest with her love of photography; many of her bird pictures are on the website. Margaret Tuttle Goff Sanchez passed away quietly, early Sunday morning, August 21, 2016, in Sandy, Utah. She was 96.
