Obituary for Edith Lorene Shank

Edith Lorene Shank, 92, of Rockingham, passed away Tuesday, October 17, 2017, at the home of her daughter.

Edith was born in Orange County, VA, on August 11, 1925, and was a daughter of the late Nora Ethel (Wisman) and John Elmer Good.

She attended school at Peach Grove and Keezletown, and graduated from Eastern Mennonite High School in 1942. She was a member of Bank Mennonite Church in Dayton. Mom was a great mom. She knew how to make fun out of small things: she played with us, made us goodies, loved parties, and loved children.

On November 20, 1946, she was united in marriage to Stanley Gerald Shank, who preceded her in death on November 30, 2009.

Edith is survived by four daughters, Ruth F. Schrock (Earl), Linda J. Swartz (Carroll), Elizabeth A. Brubaker (Charles), and Rebecca S. Good (Christian); a son, John G. Shank (Cynthia); sister, Velma Shank; brother, Austin Good (Lavene); seventeen grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Julia Rhodes; numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

She is also preceded in death by a grandson, Weston Shank; siblings, Frances Whetzel Barnhart, Carl Good, Aubrey Good, John Snively Good, and Mildred Barnhart.

A graveside service will be conducted 10AM Monday, October 23, 2017, at Bank Mennonite Church Cemetery. A memorial service will follow at 11AM at the Pike Mennonite Church in Harrisonburg, with Bank Church Ministry officiating.

The family will receive friends from 4 until 7PM Sunday, October 22, 2017, at Johnson Funeral Service in Bridgewater.
