  1. So sorry to hear of your loss, Don. She was a tremendous asset to the Gaylord community, as are you. I will forever appreciate the countless hours you both volunteered at Recycle! Otsego.

  2. To the Storing and Roundy families: I am so, so sorry for your loss. Marti was a teacher at North Ohio Elementary when I began my career as an elementary school social worker. She was my co-worker until she retired. Marti was a wonderful, caring teacher and was such a resource to me when I first started my career at GCS. I am so glad she was there for our kiddos. I giggle when I think about all of the fun stories she shared with me throughout the years. You will be missed my friend, you will be missed💔.

    We are so sorry to hear of the death of Mardee. She was a valued member of our congregation and made many contributions to the well-being and growth of the church, and to us as individuals. Her sense of humor and consistent goodwill brought us joy. Our hearts are with Don and the children.

  4. This breaks my heart 💔 She was my first teacher as soon as I moved to Gaylord and over the years we would see each other. Eventually, we stopped running into each other until one day she was a volunteer at my work I was so happy to embrace her warm tight hugs and talk with her again. She will be missed. Many prayers to her family.❤️

    She was a wonderful woman from what I remember of meeting her as a child. My grandma Jean (Storing) Brandenburg thought highly of her.

    Mardee was one of my very best friends for over forty years. She was also one of the first persons I met when I started my teaching career in Gaylord. Our friendship was very special and I will miss her dearly.

  8. Mardee became one of my closest friends despite our age difference. I enjoyed the conversations we have had over the years. She has helped me over several hurdles in my life and I will be forever grateful for the wonderful person she was. My condolences to all of her family and friends. She will be greatly missed.

  9. Thanks Kam, those were the good old days for sure, we did honestly enjoy volunteering there and doing our best to help clean up Gaylord and Otsego county.

  10. So sorry cousin Don, Krista just told me. I was shocked at her passing, remembering the two of you riding your bikes together. If you need anything, Cindy and I are right around the corner. God bless you.
