In memory of
Margot Julie (Mates) Stigall
Margot Julie Stigall (Mates) Palm Desert - Margot Stigall of Palm Desert, California passed away on December 30, 2019 at the age of 82. She was born on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1937 in Chicago, IL to Richard and Geneve Mates. She was raised in Arlington Heights, a suburb of Chicago. Her family established and ran Hawk Model Company in Chicago from 1928 to 1970, regarded as "America's Oldest Model (toy) Company". Margot was a dedicated equestrian from the age of seven to eighteen taking part in numerous horse shows, including an international show, with her stunning horse "Sparkling Ebony". After graduating from Arlington Heights High School, she traveled southwest to attend the University of Arizona, Tucson graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics. It was there that Margot began her lifelong journey as a member of Delta Gamma Sorority, making many cherished friends along the way. She moved to Palm Desert in 1985 with Wayne, her husband of 54 years. They had previously made their home in Palo Alto, California where they raised their family and were active members of Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club. Like her mother before her, Margot was a wonderful cook and enjoyed entertaining and hosting family and friends with special luncheons and holiday meals. Survivors include sons Scott (Dodi) and Chase (Andre) Stigall, and granddaughters Hannah, Emma and Arianna Stigall all of Reno, Nevada. She was preceded in death by her husband Wayne Stigall, her parents Richard and Geneve Mates, and her brother Richard Mates. Margot was like a ray of sunshine - the true meaning of 'personality plus'. Her sparkling blue eyes, unending smile and kindness will truly be missed and never forgotten. A scholarship will be established in loving memory of Margot through the Coachella Valley Alumni Panhellenic (CVAP), Patron Program, c/o Margaret Kelso, 78509 Yavapa, Indian Wells, CA 92210. The family wishes to thank Linda Simmons for her longstanding friendship, care and concern for Margot. It meant the world to her.
