Margaret Zeigler Schopf, 89

October 04, 2021

Margaret Zeigler Schopf of Lancaster passed on Monday, the 4th of October, 2021. Born October 7th, 1931 to Eugene and Margaret Ziegler and survived by her sister, Kathy.

Margaret was mother to Steve, Lisa, Eric, Marty and Stuart. Grandmother to Emily & Andrew Cooper & Grant, Kirstin & Lance.

Margaret was a proud 49er, one of the 49 graduates of East Lampeter High School in 1949. In school she made numerous life-long friends including, most notably, Viola Landis. Viola has always been and remains a steadfast source of support for which the family will be forever grateful.

Margie was very creative and sketched and painted early in her life. She enjoyed bowling, gardening, quilting, cooking and baking and the frequent gatherings that brought her family together. These cherished times were most special to her as they were usually lively and full of laughter and memories.

Well into her eighties, she was a volunteer for Meals-on-Wheels working in all areas from meal prep to delivery. The connections she made through this vital charity were quite fulfilling for her. The family asks to consider a donation to Lancaster Meals-On-Wheels in her name.

The selfless and tireless efforts of the entire Hospice staff was deeply appreciated and cannot go unmentioned for their compassionate care.

Holding all of you in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I have many good memories of times with your Mom (Grandma). She was a very special lady and gave of herself to others.

Margie was a good woman. I liked her a lot. I knew her especially during the 10 years when she became the mother of Lisa, Eric, Marty and Stuart, when she lived on Princess Anne Drive. I recently saw Steve and I would see Kathy at bridge at Maple Grove.
May she Rest in Peace!!
