Margaret Weyant Appell

Margaret Weyant Appell, 89, of Danbury, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 7, 2015 at St. John Paul II Center for Health Care, Danbury.

A native of Danbury, Margaret was born on September 11, 1925, a daughter to Paraska (Kotulic) and Andrew Zanzal. She attended Danbury schools and graduated from Danbury High School in the Class of 1943 and received an Associate degree from Danbury State Teacher’s College. As a young woman, she worked for the telephone company and later on with the Union Trust Company. In later years, she was a secretary with the Head Start Program of Danbury until her retirement.

Marge had an incredible memory for dates and numbers. She loved to purchase lottery tickets hoping to win big!

She loved her family most of all and was proud of her Slovak roots; passing down customs and traditions. An excellent cook and baker, she was known for her delicious apple pies.

A love of travel took her all over the country and she had the many photographs she took to prove it. Her other loves included art and music of all kinds. She was a member of St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church of Danbury.

Mrs. Appell will be sadly missed by her children, Carol Haddad and her husband Arthur of Danbury, Harold Weyant of Long Beach, California and Randall Weyant and his wife Julie of New Milford; eleven grandchildren, Jeffrey, Christopher and Matthew Haddad, Austin, Gillian, Luke, Jack, Jeremy and Elena Weyant and Brok-Alan and Heath Weyant; three great grandchildren, Benjamin, Gavin and Madalyn Haddad and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was predeceased by a son, Jeffrey and by seven siblings, Mary, Anna, George, Andrew, John, Michael and Stephen.

Marge’s family is especially grateful to the nurses, doctors, aided and staff at St. John Paul II Center for Health Care for the loving care and medical attention they provided here the last three and one-half years of her life. She was blessed with the best care when her body began to fail her.
