They pastored Pilgrim Holiness Churches in Ohio and Michigan. In between pastoring, Ed served seven years as business manager for the Pilgrim Holiness Church Headquarters in Indianapolis and Margaret was an aide in a hospital. While at denominational headquarters, Ed felt a call to Zambia, Africa, were they served as missionaries for ten years. Margaret was mostly the "hostess" for the Mission's visitors and staff.
Ed passed away in 2004. Margaret moved to Wesleyan Village in 2005. In her years in Wesleyan Village she became the caregiver at different times to four ladies who were also Village residents, each of them younger then she was.
In 2006 she married Wayne Spangler, who survives. She will be dearly missed by Wayne's children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is also survived by her "brother" Jack McDonald (actually a first cousin who was raised with her by her parents), nieces Karen (Gary) Isaacs, Melody (Mark Dodrill), and other nieces and nephews.
