Margaret Mae Steggell

December 21, 1933 — January 26, 2024

South Jordan

Margaret Mae Steggell, peacefully passed away on January 26, 2024.  She was born in American Fork, Utah on December 21, 1933.  She was the daughter of Lewis Johnathan Steggell and Isabelle Jeannette Proctor Steggell and the youngest of five siblings (Clifford, Gene, George, and Virginia). All deceased.  

She was raised in rural American Fork, Utah and graduated from American Fork High School.  At the age of 18 she moved alone to the big city of Salt Lake City, where she lived on her own on South Temple Street and then of Desoto Street up behind the state capitol building as she liked to say.  She never drove a car and walked to work, shopping, and entertainment her entire life.  Margaret worked in accounting and book keeping for banks briefly and then she worked in several departments for the State of Utah.  The last being the office of Anti-Discrimination.  She was very proud of that service.  She retired at the age of precisely 64 ½.  These last four years she lived with her nephew Randy (Carol) Howell in South Jordan, Utah.  

Margaret was such a pleasure to be around she was so kind, polite, and knowledgeable.  She was known as the family historian.   She could tell you where the roots of the Steggall family tree started and branched off all the way to today’s family limbs.  She would tell you the place, date, and the persons names.  Their wife’s maiden family names their children’s names and their children’s children’s names.  She remembered every birthday.  She was also very sharp and had a memory that was admired by all.  

She enjoyed noting and keeping statistics for sporting events, the daily weather and even wins and losses for her favorite game shows.  She could tell you the score and who won or lost which sporting event whether it was baseball, football, golf, or hockey.  She watched them all.  She really enjoyed watching football.  She knew the average high, low and average for each day, month, and year going back decades.  You could ask her any question about pretty much any family history or statistics and she would know the answer.  She had a remarkable head for numbers and statistics.

She is survived by 8 nieces and nephews who adored her.  Dan Steggell, Randy Howell, Ralph Steggell, Joan Steggell, Gerry Steggell, John Steggell, David Steggell and Cliff Steggell.  She is preceded in death by her parents, her siblings and nephew Brad Steggell and niece Sandra Steggell Andrews.  

Her family would like to thank the caring staff at IHC hospital in Murray both in the Emergency Room and ICU who never left our sides while diligently diagnosing her sudden severe illness.  Especially Nurse Margot who was there with us for 12-14 hours her last day.  Margaret was a very private person but was very loved by all who got to know her.  

Funeral services will be held Monday February 5, 2024 at 11:00 am in the Anderson & Sons Mortuary, 49 East 100 North, Am. Fork.  A viewing will be held from 9:45 to 10:45 am prior to the services.  Burial in the American Fork Cemetery.
