MARGARET SHIPLE

Margaret Sue Shiple passed away June 29, 2017, at Maplewood at Twinsburg, an assisted living facility in the Cleveland area. After visiting with family members, she closed her eyes and simply went to sleep. Born in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1925, to Dennis and Viola (Reed) Hefner, she was predeceased by her parents, brother Dennis Wade and husband Paul to whom she was married for 68 wonderful years until his death in 2016. Her children David, Sue, Linda and Paul are very grateful for the years of love she shared with her family. As a member of the greatest generation, she taught us the virtues of gratitude, humility, love of country and looking out for your neighbor. Margaret was the kind of mother, wife and daughter with which every child, husband and parent should be blessed. She adored her family above all else, and that was made very clear to each of us. Taught by her mother and grandmother, from an early age, she developed a great love for needle arts. From embroidery to crewelwork to quilting, every family member owns at least one of her beautiful quilts. She stitched away the hours while watching her favorite films on The Movie Channel. A fan of many handsome leading men, it was always a good movie if it starred Glenn Ford or Robert Taylor. Her music interests spanned Nelson Eddy and Jennette Mc-Donald to the great opera tenor Placido Domingo. Always an animal lover, as a small child she was always bringing home lost cats, with which her father was not too happy. As an adult there was always a cat or two in the Shiple household. Her family thanks her for passing along her love of animals to them. Margaret leaves behind cat Danny, age 11, who now resides in California with family members. She was a lifelong Republican, which led to many “spirited” conversations. Other family members include Michelle, Aaron and Sandy Shiple, Re Falls, Tom, Rachel, Sarah Latoza, and Kristen, Brittany and Melinda Johnson. Also, sisters-in-law, Marcella (Shiple) Haas and Irene (Giamo) Shiple, as well as many nieces and nephews. Many thanks to the Hospice of Northwest Ohio, Kingston of Perrysburg, Maplewood at Twinsburg, and Serenity Hospice of Stow, Ohio, for the countless hours they spent caring for Margaret and her family. They will never be forgotten. Friends were received at Witzler Shank Funeral Home, 222 East South Boundary Street, Perrysburg, (419-874-3133) on Friday, July 7. Funeral services were held Saturday, July 8, at the funeral home. Burial was in Fort Meigs Union Cemetery. It was her wish that in lieu of flowers, a contribution be made to the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace, 18001 Yorba Linda Boulevard, Yorba Linda, CA 92686-9948. Also, please keep Alzheimer’s research in mind, as the number of people diagnosed is increasing in staggering numbers.
