Weekly Bulletin July 4, 2021

As we come together with our families and friends on this 4th of July weekend,  please keep the Studt and Mappin families in your prayers.  They along with all our parishioners at San Antonio Church continue to mourn the loss of Margaret (Studt) Mappin who passed away on June 19, 2021 at the age of 98.  Marge joined our church after the loss of her husband Robert, on the suggestion of her brother Bob and sister in law, the late Louise (Marckesano) Studt.  From that moment on Marge became a big part of the history at San Antonio where she attended  Sunday Mass  and  became a valued member of the Men’s and Ladies Sodality; who never missed a first Friday of the month meeting.  Marge  volunteered at every Spaghetti Dinner held in our Hall as the head of the spaghetti  assembly line insuring those dine-in or take out dinners were served in a timely manner.  Many generations of patrons will always remember Marge who manned that  station for close to 40 years.  She was a natural fit at San Antonio Church and all new her acquaintances became lifelong friends who considered her friendship a gift.  All of us were pleased to be in her company at our Easter Sunday Mass; the last time many of our parishioners were in her company.  

Marge was the daughter of the late Carl and Mary Studt and the beloved sister to brothers Charlie, Jack and their wives Melva and Ginny.  Even though she lost her husband Robert in 1978, Marge was devoted to his memory  and mourned him until her death.  She also had many good friends from the 2nd  generation of members of San Antonio Church who preceded her including the late Ann Augustine, Ann Bonaventure,  Ollie Brockmeyer, Minnie Cupito, Rose Cupito, Theresa Gleisinger, Marie Isadore, Henrietta Klundt, Sue Krimme, Pat Makin, Josie Moore, Fern Roberto, Loraine Roberto, Phil Schare, Sandy Schulter, Betty Seig, Mary Jane Shaw, Dorothy Smiley ,Angie Spencer, Jenny Walkenhorst, Willie Williams and Rose Young.  Marge loved spending time with them and was all in for having a good time.  They planned many events and on occasion  were driven out to Bob and Rosalie Runtz’s farm  in St. Leon, Indiana by Bob Studt, the late Nobile Cupito, Joe Isadore and Pug Shaw for their field trips where they swam, picnicked and played cards in the Runtz’s “Elvis Room”.  Marge’s greatest loss in her last few years were  sister-in-law the late Louise (Marckesano) Studt and  nephew and confidante, Nick Poland who passed in 2020.  Marge also leaves Debbie and Suzanne Poland who brought her to Mass at San Antonio and the many nieces and nephews who kept up with Aunt Margie on a weekly basis and will greatly mourn her passing.  We are all very sad to have lost Marge, but we all  thank God to have had her in our lives for all those years.
