Obituary of Margaret M. Sanders


Dr. Margaret McKenna Sanders, “Peggy Hearts of Hearts,”  92, of Albany, NY Peacefully passed away on Monday, October 7th,2019

Widow of Arthur Sanders, she leaves a stepdaughter, Drue Sanders (whom she called her daughter) (Paul Gregory), Her brother, Edward F. McKenna (Mardie Mckenna) and several very loved nieces and nephews as well as grand nieces and nephews missing and mourning her. Predeceased by a brother John J. Mckenna.

She was so kind, thoughtful, funny and quick to give a gentle hug. With her friends and Drue she traveled the world, always ready for adventure. Her favorite trip was the African Safari with Drue. Even up to this year she always beat us at scrabble and our dinner pastime was the daily crossword puzzle and to our amazement always knew every clue to a crossword puzzle.
