Mary Gladys (Nolde) Weigal, 92, passed away on Jan. 22.
Born July 9, 1921 in Powers, Mi. to the late Henry and Catherine (Schneider) Nolde, her life was devoted to God and her family. She was a hard worker and retired from Emerson Electric Co in Menominee.
She enjoyed canning, cleaning, sewing and playing cards. A devout Catholic, she was dedicated to her faith, attended church daily, led prayer groups and visited Fatima and Medjugorje. Her greatest joy was her family. She was known for her potato salad and ability to always put others before herself. She survived breast cancer and was a true inspiration to others by the way she lived in sharing of peace, love, faith and prayer and will be missed.
Survivors include two sons, Eugene (Marianne) Weigal and Dwight (Kerri) Weigal, both of Birch Creek; four grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; two sisters, Agnes (Henry) Ullmer, of Green Bay and Clara (Morris) Best, of Silver Springs, Md. and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by two sisters, Irene (Loren) Lemery and Theresa (Kenneth) Olsen; three brothers, Joseph (Irene & Betty), Henry (Dorothy) & Colonel William (Joyce) Nolde; a daughter, Joan (William) Ganser and infant grandsons, Stephen and Lee Weigal.
