Barbara Marie (Eckert) Schiff, 79, of Menominee, Mi., passed away Friday, Dec. 18, 2020, after a brief illness.
Born Nov. 27, 1941, in Menominee, Mi., the second oldest of five children, to Francis and Florence Eckert, she loved growing up in Menominee where she was close to many family members and was proud to be from the UP!
She had a strong devotion to family and loved spending time with them, going shopping with her sisters, going on mini trips to Minnesota to visit her youngest sister and more. She was always a caregiver and worked at Luther Manor for over 10 years.
She also was a caregiver to her mom for many years and she loved all the visits of family members to her house, especially her brother and sister-in-law every Sunday. She enjoyed being a mother, sister and friend and had a way to make people laugh and smile and will be deeply missed by all.
Survivors include a son, Tod (Tina) Schiff; two grandchildren; a brother, Ray (Barb) Eckert of Stephenson, Mi.; three sisters, Nancy (Don) Bourgeois and Mary (Mark) Ecker, both of Menominee and Patti (Jack) LeMay of Eagan, Mn. and many nieces and nephews.
