Obituary for Margaret Sanders

Margaret Sanders departed this life on Saturday, August 19, 2017.

Born to Abraham Lincoln Myers and Zelma Cave-Myers on February 23, 1925 in Kline, South Carolina. Margaret was one of 12 brothers and sisters. Margaret was the good one. When the others would do something bad they would try and blame it on Margaret because she never got punished.

Margaret moved to Plainfield, New Jersey more than 74 years ago. On December 26, 1946 she married Morris Sanders and to that union one daughter was born. They devoted their life to providing everything she needed and everything she wanted.

Margaret was a great cook and everybody loved her biscuits, sweet potato and coconut pies. She cooked so much for folks that one day my father said, “Margaret this ain’t no restaurant”. No matter she would still cook.

She worked for Stanley Bags and Kings Daughter’s Day Nursery, retiring in 1989.

In the early 1960’s Margaret accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, she was baptized by the late Elder Stiles at Macedonia Church of god in Christ in Somerset, NJ. Shortly thereafter she became an usher for the late Sister Jennings. She looked forward to ushering every 1st and 5th Sunday. She remained a faithful and loyal usher to the end.

She is predeceased by her siblings Ophelia Brown, Isaac Myers. Herman Myers, Wlaace Myers, Duease Myers and Ethel Jones.

Margaret leaves to mourn her daughter, Shirley Crisp-Singleton (Steven) of Newark, DE; 3 grandchildren, Natasha Crisp, Jah’Keena Ellis (Everton) and Michael J. Crisp, Jr. (Anissa), 2 great grands, Myasia Judge and Stefon Judge, Jr., and one great-great grand, Ja’Hir Judge; her siblings Elijah Myers and Reather Robinson of Plainfield, NJ Grenda Barnes (George) and Jannice Dawkins (Willie James Dawkins) both of Florida and Rev.
