Our beloved Maggie passed away on Sept. 28th at the age of 89. Daughter to Mitzi and Joe; wife to Don; Mom to Terry (David) Weingrod, Karen (Moe) Chin, Kathryn (Randy) Weaver, Daniel (Alice) and Mary Margaret; grama to Maggie Mai (Nate), Moriah (Dan), Nathanial (Erin), Jeremiah, Maya, Max, Cooper and Josie; a spectacular great grama and a friend to many.
Our mom was a wonder. She shared life lessons in the beginning years, wisdom in the middle years and companionship in all the years that followed. She gave to the world more than she took from it. She died surrounded by her books and her children. The world will be a lesser place without her.
Our thanks to Horizon Hospice and Visiting Angels and their staff for their exemplary care. Donations to any Humane Society would be appreciated. There will be a memorial gathering at the Rybold home - 2326 E. Menlo Blvd., Shorewood, WI 53211 on Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Let Evening Come
Let the light of late afternoon
shine through chinks in the barn, moving
up the bales as the sun moves down.
Let the cricket take up chafing
as a woman takes up her needles
and her yarn. Let evening come.
Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned
in long grass. Let the stars appear
and the moon disclose her silver horn.
Let the fox go back to its sandy den.
Let the wind die down. Let the shed
go black inside. Let evening come.
To the bottle in the ditch, to the scoop
in the oats, to air in the lung
let evening come.
Let it come, as it will, and don’t
be afraid. God does not leave us
comfortless, so let evening come.
