THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Margaret (Hatton) Rhodes, 85, of Amberg, passed away Sunday, April 23 at Bay Area Medical Center.
Born Jan. 5, 1932 in Dunbar, to the late Curtis and Margaret (White) Hatton, she married Richard Rhodes on June 8, 1951 and worked at Cruiser's Boat Factory for 12 years.

She was a lifelong member of the Amberg Presbyterian Church, loved flowers, was an avid reader and enjoyed watching birds, but mostly loved time with her grandchildren. In later years she was fond of eating out and spending time with her pets.
