Joann Cargile  

Muncie – Joann Louise Cargile (née Perkins), 76, ended her long battle with cancer on  Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at home. One of eight children, Joann was born on September 24,  1944 in Muncie.  

She attended St. Lawrence School and graduated from Muncie Central High School. She  married Gerald W. Cargile in 1964 and lived in Muncie her entire life. For a brief time she  worked at Duffy Tool and Stamping.  

She was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She was actively involved with the lives of her  children. She treasured her grandchildren and great-grandchild. While she never quite made it  to 5 feet tall (4’ 11½”), her feisty personality made up for her short stature. She loved her family,  lighthouses, enjoyed playing euchre, bingo and card games and trips with her brothers and  sisters to Gulf Shores, AL. She loved the beach. 

She is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years Gerald “Jerry” Cargile; her twin brother  John Perkins, brothers Bill and Frank Perkins; sister-in-law Susan Perkins (née Taylor); nephew  Nick Karch; and parents Clarence and Mary Frances Perkins (née Rahe).  

Those left to cherish her memory are two sons, John Cargile (husband Damian Rosales) of St.  Louis, MO and Joseph of Muncie; her daughter Angie Cargile (partner Alan McLin) of Muncie;  grandchildren Kaley Cargile of Kalamazoo, MI, Miranda Cargile of Muncie, Megan McLin of  Muncie and Zachary Cargile of Muncie; Damian Rosales, Kimberly Graciela and Ulbrani  Rosales of San Salvador, El Salvador; great-grandchild, Cora Grace Cargile of Muncie; two  sisters Mary Rhoades (husband Robby), Parker City and Cecily Cooper (husband Frank),  Muncie; two brothers James Perkins (wife Marty), Muncie and Tony Perkins (wife Cammy),  Muncie; three sisters-in-law Linda Perkins, Muncie, Kathy Perkins Woodruff, Muncie, and Becky  Perkins Ellgass, Chattanooga, TN; close cousin Shirley Johnson, and many other cousins,  nieces and nephews.  

She will be cremated with no services held, as per her wishes. A gathering for the family will  occur at a later date.  

The family wishes to thank the IU Health Ball Memorial Cancer Center, IU Health Ball Memorial  Hospice and its nurses for their wonderful care and support throughout this difficult time.
