Mary is my paternal great grand aunt.

Her obituary from the Gospel Herald:

Appel.-Mary Catherine, daughter of George and Martha Appel, was born July 2, 1870 at Cullom, Ill., where she had spent her entire life; died at her home in Cullom Dec. 20, 1941; aged 71 y. 6 m. 18 d. She had been in failing health the past three years, but became seriously ill about a month ago, gradually growing weaker until her death. She leaves 1 brother (Lewis) with whom she had always resided, 1 sister (Mrs. Elizabeth Haag of Cullom), 9 nephews, 4 nieces, 10 grandnephews, 5 grandnieces, and twin great-grandnephews. She was preceded in death by her father, mother, and 1 sister. She confessed Christ as her Saviour at the age of 14 years, uniting with the Mennonite Church of which she was a member at her death, and remained a loyal Christian to the end. Her pleasing disposition and kind and loving ways endeared her to a large circle of friends. Thus closes a Christian life of the allotted three-score yeas and ten that was ever filled with the noblest of desires and the best of interests. The gentle spirit of our sister will live long in the memory of those who knew and loved her. Funeral services were held at her late home and at the Methodist Church in Cullom with J. D. Hartzler, Charles A. Bennett and D. W. Slagel in charge. Text, Rev. 1: 18. Burial was in West Lawn Cemetery.

GOSPEL HERALD - Vol. XXXIV, No . 40 - January 1, 1942, pp 854, 8455

"Somewhere beyond the sunset
Where loveliness never dies,
She dwells in a land of glory
'Mid the blue and the gold of the skies;
And we who have known and loved her
And whose leaving has brought us tears,
Will cherish her memory always
To brighten the drifting years."
