Margie Van Wyck Leep
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 27, 1874
Borger-Odoorn Municipality
Drenthe, Netherlands
Death: Mar. 1, 1951
Ottawa County
Michigan, USA

She was born in 1874 as Marchien van Wijk in the peatdiggers village Drouwenermond in the northeastern part of the Dutch northeastern province Drenthe. Her parents are the 34 years aged shopkeeper Antonie [Anthony] van Wijk and Fennechien [Fannie] de Jonge.

She emigrated in 1882 to the USA and lived in 1910, 1924 and in 1930 as single of 55 years in Chicago.

Margie Van Wyck married after in the winter of 1935/1936 to the widower Edward K Leep, born in 1876 in the Netherlands too. She was E K Leep's second of three wives. At some point he found her to be intolerable. Rather than divorce her, which was unacceptable for him, he lived a largely separate life until her death in 1951 and then remarried soon after for the second time.

Margie died in 1951 in hospital at Holland in the western part of Michigan at the age of 76 years. She hasn't an own marker (anymore?) at the family Van Wyck plot in the Concordia Cemetery in Forest Park, Cook County, Illinois.
