Margaret Knight

Our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and sister, Sarah Margaret Hatch Knight, born December 5, 1920, died peacefully at home in Coolidge, Arizona on March 1, 2018.

Margaret was born in Salt Lake City to Amos C. Hatch and Sarah Edna Stohl, the second of nine children. She grew up in Parowan, Utah and attended Dixie College and University of Utah.

Four more children were added after his return, William Howard, Ruth Anne, Christine and Rosalie.

Margaret was an active member of the LDS Church, serving in many capacities, including missions served with her husband in Ohio.

She is survived by two of her children, Ruth Lowell (Bob) and Rose Zeigler, and by 12 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, four siblings, her husband and three children, Linda, Christine and William.
