Born – April 30, 1950

Passed – June 28, 2018

“She joins parents Billy and Marjorie Newton and her daughter Wendy in Heaven.

I just want to start by thanking everyone for your prayers. On June 28, the world lost one of its greatest to an intracranial hemorrhage. She did everything in her power for everyone she could. Yet, we all felt so helpless in the end.

She will be deeply missed by everyone whose life she touched.

Special prayers for her Aunt Joanne; brother Carl; sister Janice; sons Jason and Chris; grandsons Mack and Zak; and the rest of the gang. I feel it would be best to say—YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

So many: I just want you all to know how much she loved you.

So, I just want to tell you all a little bit about my mom. Back in the ’80s, she helped keep our locals and our law enforcement alert with a 24-Hour coffee and doughnut shop. She moved on to boost spirits at our local Gaylord Eagles Aeries 1825. Then in the late ‘90s—early ‘00s, she worked for our local schools. Most of you would remember her as Miss Midge, Midgette, or just Midge.

After she retired, she was starting to not be herself. So, kids being kids, a few of them set her up in a blind date. Believe it or not, it was someone she knew from back in the day. He showed her there was so much more to do in life.

Special thanks to Carl John Peterson, the Masons, and the Eastern Stars for everything you did with and for our loved one.

A celebration of her life will be held Saturday, July 28, 2018 at 17 East McCoy Road, Gaylord, MI 49735. Donations accepted (but not necessary) in care of Chris Goletz at the same address.

Spread the word. Hope to see you all there! God Bless.”

Arrangements entrusted to Nelson Funeral Home and Cremation Service, P.O. Box 1548 Gaylord, MI 49734.

  2. My deepest condolences to Midge’s family, to cousin Carl and Jan. Although we were separated by many miles for many years, from Michigan to California when we were kids, she remains in my heart as a wonderful cousin and kind person. My memories of family get togethers and the news my folks relayed to us about Midge and her life stay strong to this day. May she be blessed by God and may you find comfort in these trying times.
    Please accept my heartfelt condolences and those from my brothers Fred and John – Midge’s Uncle Fred’s and Aunt Marilyn’s kids.
