Margaret F. "Maggie" Shank Appel
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 24, 1891, USA
Death: Nov., 1970
Harrisonburg City
Virginia, USA

She is the wife of my great grand uncle. Both of them are listed on gravestones in Illinois and Virginia. Maggie is actually in Virginia, and Lewis is buried in Illinois.

The Appel's were Mennonites.

Margaret's actual burial took place in Weavers Mennonite Church Cemetery in Harrisonburg, Rockingham County, Virginia.

I'm not sure why Margaret decided to be buried there 12 years after Lewis' death. She already had a plot in Illinois. Probably she decided to be buried in her hometown, since she went back to live there after Lewis died.

Her obituary:
Appel.- Margaret, daughter of Charles G. and Annie (Weaver) Shank, was born in Rockingham Co., Va., July 24, 1891; died at the Virginia Mennonite Home, Harrisonburg, Va., Nov. 29, 1970; aged 79 y. 4 m. 5 d. In 1923 she was married to Lewis Appel, who died Sept. 8, 1958. Surviving are 2 sisters (Mrs. Mary Beachey and Mrs. Nannie Bailey) and 3 brothers (Samuel A., Emanual J., and John W. Shank). Seven brothers and one sister preceded her in death. She was a member of the Weavers Mennonite Church, where funeral services were held Dec. 2, in charge of Alvin Gascho and Alvin Kanagy; interment in the church cemetery.
