Margaret Stemen Obituary

Margaret Stemen, 92, of Elida, went home with the Lord on Thursday, August 17, 2023. She was born August 3, 1931, to Reuben and Leah (Good) Brunk.  Both preceded her in death.  On November 16, 1952, she was united in marriage to Warren L. Stemen.  He preceded her in death on February 1, 2022.

Margaret was a member of Pike Mennonite Church.   She was a prayer warrior and was on the prayer chain at WTLW Channel 44 in Lima.  She loved to read especially the Bible.  Margaret loved to work in her flower beds and sing.  She enjoyed walks and loved traveling and the beach.  Her grandchildren loved her cookies, especially the raisin filled ones, but Margaret enjoyed ice cream as her favorite treat.
