Margaret B. Sattler

Margaret B. Sattler, age 96, of Swanton, Ohio, entered into eternal rest, Tuesday morning, February 21, 2017, at Fulton Manor in Wauseon, following a brief illness. She was born August 21, 1920 in Congo, Ohio to Joseph and Elizabeth (Suto) Kekes. Growing up as the seventh child of thirteen, and because her father died at a young age, she helped raise her younger siblings.

Margaret was a graduate of Waite High School, and during the war, worked for Autolite. In her younger years, she attended the YWCA where she learned leather tooling, an art that stayed with her throughout her entire life. In 1951, she married her beloved husband, Cecil T. Sattler at St. Stephen's Catholic Church in Toledo. They loved fishing in Canada and she was proud to hold the record for the biggest catch. Cecil preceded her in death on June 2, 1987.

Margaret was an avid reader. Her fondest hobbies were gardening, noodle making and enjoying her grandchildren. Margaret was a devout Catholic and parishioner at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Assumption. She loved to sing and was a member of the church choir, the Altar & Rosary Society and she prayed the Rosary daily. Margaret volunteered at the school teaching the students embroidery and leather tooling. She and Cecil were charter members of St. Mary's Catholic War Veterans Post #306, where she served as Past President.

Left to cherish her memory is her son, Michael T. (Randy May) Sattler; daughter, Patricia (Keith) Schroeder; grandchildren, Jennifer Sattler (Brian Hartogh), Jacob (Amanda) Sattler, Dawn (Eric) Fultz and Michelle (Jason) Klear; great-grandchild, Lauren Fultz; sister, Susanna Wiemer; brother, Alex "Tuffy" Kekes; sister-in-law, Dorothy Kekes; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Besides her husband, Cecil, Margaret was preceded in death by her parents; grandson, Robert T. Sattler; brothers, Joseph, John, Frank, Albert, Andrew, Stephan Kekes and sisters, Elizabeth Nyitrai, Julia Bobash, Annie Eischen and Helen Lazur.

I have many fond memories of visiting Margaret. I love this picture of her, she always had that smile on her face. It had a way of warming my own heart.
