Mount Gilead, Ohio

Margaret M. Ault, age 69, of Mount Gilead, passed away Tuesday evening, June 17, 2014, at Riverside Methodist Hospital.

She was born on July 16, 1944, in Portsmouth, OH, to Hassel Martin and Viola (Hall) Scott and attended Mansfield Senior High School.

Margaret worked for many years at Valentec (Formerly Galion Amco) in Galion in various roles. She started out in the shop and worked her way up to the administration office. More recently she loved working as an office manager for Jack Lehman Construction. Known as “Jacks right hand man”, she kept the office running from day to day as well as keeping Jack on task. This was a challenging job that she worked very hard at and was proud of.

Margaret had a passion for the outdoors. She loved to hunt and fish which led to many trips to Canada where she enjoyed beating the boys by catching the biggest fish or taking in the most ruffled grouse. She also liked to do a little gambling. Marge even went on many bus trips to various casinos with her favorite casino being the Grand Victoria. Most of all Marge loved spending time with her three granddaughters. She would go to every softball, basketball, or volleyball game possible just to cheer them on.

She will be dearly missed by her daughter, Candace (Dwayne) Wilson of Cardington; step daughter, Carol Thompson of Mt. Gilead; mother, Viola Scott of Mt. Gilead; stepfather, Carl Scott of Galion; granddaughters: Lexia, Laynee, and Sydnie Wilson; a brother, Herbert (Linda) Martin of Greenville, SC; a sister, Celia Kelly of Knoxville, TN; many nieces, nephews, and cousins; as well as her best friends Kay Sanders and Connie Sigler.

She was preceded in death by her father, Hassel and brother Kenneth.

A celebration of life will be held from 6 to 9 pm, Friday, June 20 2014, in the upper level of Candlewood Lake Lodge.

If desired, memorial contributions may be made in memory of Marge to the American Cancer Society, 1198 Kenny Centre Mall, Columbus, OH 43220.

  • Our condolences and prayers go out to Marge’s Family.
    I remember her quick wit and humor. Marge could tell you a story as well as any one and have you laughing. When I was building, I could go to her and ask questions and she new the answers, always helpful. Jack would say, I don’t have time, go ask Marge, course he was kidding, but I went to spite him and she would laugh at us, you men are all alike.
    Will sadly be missed, but I know she would say, go on and do it.
    God Bless
