Sun going down (for a while)

Sun Theater owner Chuck Pantera and Cornie Melvin of the McKenzie Construction Co. ride the theater’s marquee as Bob McDonald guides it onto a truck. Pantera said the 1930’s tan brick facade will be removed and replaced with a new red brick facade over the course of two to four weeks, after which the current marquee will be temporarily returned to its place. Pantera said he plans a series of community concerts to raise approximately $10,000 which, added to a Downtown Development Authority grant, will enable him to replace the marquee with a “new retro gaudy marquee with lots of glitz and neon.” During construction, the theater will not close, he said. “Not one day.” The Sun will continue to show $2 movies while the marquee is down, and movie fans may check film offerings and times at the theater web site at www.grandledgesun.com, or by calling the movie line at (517) 627-2346.

Delta Township issues updates on road closure DELTA TWP. - Orange cones are everywhere in Delta Township these days. Road and bride construction has been under way on Waverly Road between Willow and Grand River for a few weeks. The closure of Waverly north of Willow, which started July 6, is necessary in order to complete the planned deck and superstructure repairs on the bridge over the Grand River, according to Dan Troia of the Ingham County Road Commission. “We anticipate that the bridge will be open to traffic in approximately four weeks, with substantial completion of the entire project by late August,” Troia said. In other road construction news, a contract to improve Nixon Road from St. Joe to Rockbridge has been awarded to Davis Construction. The work will begin in mid-July and is expected to be finished early in November, according to Delta Township engineer Dennis Williams. It will require the closing of Nixon from St. Joe to north of Rockbridge for much of the construction

CHARLOTTE — This week nearly a thousand Eaton County youth will converge at the fairgrounds. Ranging in age from 9 to 19, the 4-H members will bring arts and crafts, produce and livestock to the Eaton County Youth Fair, July 12 to 17. Tradition keeps them coming back to the week-long event, said Theo Savage, a board member for the past 24 years. Savage has the proof to back it up. A few years ago when the Eaton County Fair Board had to stop offering cash awards to 4-Hers who placed during the week’s competition it didn’t discourage youngsters. “Their brothers and sisters and moms and dads took part in this fair,” said Savage. “The trophies and the accomplishments mean more to them then the money ever did.”

Need more information? For additional event listings and pricing for the Eaton County Fair visit www.eatoncountyfair.com

In fact, hundreds of volunteers — including leaders for 38 area 4-H clubs — work the fairgrounds during the annual event. “Everything is volunteer,” said Savage. “All of the clubs that have leaders, they’re all volunteer. Almost everything that goes on down here is done with volunteers.” Savage served 12 years as fair president and remains committed to the event, because he cares about the kids involved. “As long as I can continue to help at the fair and be here to enjoy it I will,” he said. “I like helping kids and I think Hopes to break even It’s good news for the Eaton there’s a need for that.” County Fair, which on average New offerings, events draws an estimated 26,000 people This year there should be plenevery year.

Do you accept political contributions from attorneys or law firms that appear before you? Is this a conflict of interest? Please explain. I have not been in a position to have an attorney or law firm appear before me. However, I do believe an candidate could accept political contributions from attorneys or law firms without there being a conflict of interest if the candidate is not aware of the contribution. That can happen if the candidate has a treasurer that receives all contributions and handles all thank you letters.

Come to info meeting on library millage

On the Aug. 3 primary election ballot, the Grand Ledge Area District Library Board is requesting renewal of 1.1544 mills for 10 years to provide funding to continue current library services. This millage does not increase taxes, in fact, it is a decrease from 1.2 mills approved by voters in 2001 that provided the foundation millage for the district library. For a home with a taxable value of $50,000 the annual renewal tax can be no more than the current $57.72. Stable funding is a necessity for keeping library services operating. In FY 2009 property taxes comprised approximately 81 percent of the library total revenue and it is expected that this percentage will continue to increase. The service area of the library district includes the City of Grand Ledge, Oneida Township and those portions of Eagle, Riley, Watertown and Westphalia townships within the

boundaries of the Grand Ledge Public Schools. The Grand Ledge Area District Library Board and the Friends of the Grand Ledge Area District Library invite you to attend one or more of the following informational meetings about the millage renewal request. Scheduled meetings are Tuesday, July 13, at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Wednesday, July 14, at 7 p.m. at the Library Meeting Room at 131 E. Jefferson St.; and Thursday, July 15, at 7 p.m. at the library branch at 13080 Wacousta Road. The district library has fulfilled the foundation goals approved by voters in 2001. These improvements include technology upgrades and support including public access to internet resources, youth/ children’s librarian and enhanced classes and workshops for children and youth, addition of a service outlet, additional hours, and increases in the budget for books and materials. We believe the Grand Ledge Area District Library is a vital lifelong resource in our community. Absent millage support, the Grand Ledge Area District Library will be forced to close. With voter support on Aug. 3, our library will continue to serve as a critical educational asset to our community.

Grand Ledge guardsman receives award

GRAND LEDGE. - Maj. David Howell of Grand Ledge has been awarded the American Legion Patriot Award for “personal intervention” which began during his overseas deployment when he met Mohammed, an Iraqi boy who, as an infant, was trapped in a house fire and suffered debilitating burns to his scalp, face, left arm and hand, abdomen, and his left leg and foot. “From the first moment I laid eyes on Mohammed I wanted to help him,” Howell said. “After I realized he could speak English I began talking to him and at one point he looked up to me and asked, ‘Can you save me?’ There was no doubt in my mind I needed to help this boy.” And, that is exactly what Howell did. It took Howell six months to get the permissions, but he managed to get Mohammed to Michigan, find him a Muslim host family and set up a foundation

to pay for operations to repair the burns on his body. Howell began his military career in 1976 at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, New London, Conn. He served on active duty from 1976 until 1981, when he transferred to the Coast Guard Reserve. In 2000, he accepted a direct commission with Army Reserve and attended Army Medical Department (AMEDD) Basic Training in 2001. In 2004, Howell made a lateral transfer to the Michigan Army National Guard where he currently serves as a physician’s assistant with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 125th Infantry Regiment, Flint. Howell has been a member of the military for 27 years. Howell is a veteran of Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. While in Iraq, he served as a physician’s assistant. Howell is preparing to de-

ploy to Afghanistan in 2011. Throughout his military career, Howell has received numerous awards including the Army Meritorious Service Medal-second award, Kuwait Liberation MedalSaudi Arabia, Kuwait Liberation Medal-Kuwait, Army Overseas Service Ribbonthird award, National Defense Medal with bronze service star and Southwest Asia Service Medal with two bronze service stars. Howell is employed by Sparrow Hospital as a physician’s assistant. He holds a bachelor’s in Economics and Management, an associate’s of Applied Science as a physician’s assistant from Cuyahoga Community College and a master’s in Health Administration from Central Michigan University. Howell has two children, Michael and Spencer. Howell and his wife, Beth, were recently married on June 18. - Michigan National Guard

A greater problem exists with hospital and industrial waste being handles in the same way. This material from hospitals contains among other things anti-biotics and bacteria. Microorganisms then evolves that are immune to the anti-biotics. That is one reason we have many diseases that are resistant to anti-biotics. Industrial waste is also deposited in the waste stream via the sewer systems. Again among other things they contain carcinogens, heavy metals and many toxins. All of this becomes part of the sewer sludge that now has been given a more acceptable label called biosolids. When the sewers are

cleaned these bio-solids are sold to gardeners or given to farmers as organic fertilizer to grow crops that end up on our tables and in stock feed. When it rains and the crops are irrigated this hazardous matter also leaches into our drinking water supply. Our utility charges help pay a large part of this system in order to assure these businesses bottom line. There is a great deal of self interest denial about what is taking place with this practice and the effect this has on our environment. But sooner or later, like global warming we will have to face up to this fact and we better hope it isn’t too late when we do. This is why I appreciate your important expose.

GRAND LEDGE - If you drove on Willow Highway July 7, you may have seen a very unusual sight: a 352-pound acoustic piano being hauled on a platform pulled by one biker and pushed by two others. This giant tricycle was the Boogie Woogie Joybox Express on the Grand Ledge to East Lansing leg of its 300-mile tour across lower Michigan. “Joybox” is an early American term for the piano. The Express left Saugatuck July 2 and will arrive in Detroit July 14. Along the way members are raising money for various charities with benefit

concerts, including one at Coral Gables in East Lansing for a health project through Michigan State that helps children in Mexico who have cranio-facial anomalies. The group was also scheduled to perform at Elderly Instruments in Lansing and for the kids at St. Vincent’s Home for Children on Willow Highway. On July 6 members had crashed at the home of Sue Radwan of Grand Ledge after pedaling 54 miles from Grand Rapids. Her brother, Pete Siers of Ann Arbor, is the Express drummer who plays a specially designed drum set on the trip, using a suitcase as a bass drum. “Drum machines have no soul” read the bumper stick-

er on Siers’ suitcase. Brian Delaney plays an electric, solar powered guitar that uses energy from solar collectors on the Express. Then there’s Carl Hildebrandt, a pediatrician from Pittsburgh, who pulls his full-size string bass behind his bike, and Mark Braun, better known as Mr. B, a boogie woogie and blues pianist. “This is his dream,” Siers said of Braun, the group’s leader, as the riders prepared to leave Grand Ledge. “He’s been thinking about this for 25 years.” Along for the ride - literally - were photographer John Lilley and Phyllis Engelbert, who describes herself as a go-fer: sandwiches, bike parts, you name it. Like any endeavor of this size, there have been problems, but the Express seems to travel with the angels. In Holland, for instance, soon after the trip began it suffered a broken chain. All of a sudden a woman from Ann Arbor whose husband is a bike mechanic just happened to show up. Luckily, she had a master link in the trunk of her car, which

Voters asked to decide on transit plan

By CHRISTINE ROOK

crook@lsj.com

EATON CO. - Voters will decide this summer whether to pay for true public busing in Eaton County. And by upgrading the existing call-ahead service to include “fixed” busing routes and pick-up hubs, midMichigan could see some economic gain, experts say. After all, the changes would allow job seekers in Eaton Rapids to get to Lansing without a car and for Lansing shoppers to take the bus to central Delta Township to spend their money. The busing issue will appear on the Aug. 3 ballot throughout Eaton County. The owner of a home with a taxable value of $55,000 would pay about $28 a year for the proposal. “This proposal is key to the future economic growth in Delta Township,” township Supervisor Ken Fletcher said. The broader implications are clear. Expanded service in Eaton County actually adds value to the Capital Area Transportation Authority, which operates largely in Ingham County. That’s because a bus rider could seamlessly travel from Okemos to Grand Ledge, according to what is

Grand River Expedition The Grand River Expedition runs July 14-26 and will include watershed studies by scientists and students from Michigan State and Grand Valley State, as well as displays and demonstrations to communities along the river. Here’s the mid-Michigan itinerary. • Paddlers will come into McArthur Park in Eaton Rapids July 16, camp overnight at Howe Memorial Field and leave the next morning from the launch site behind the Quality Dairy. • They will pass Burchfield Park and be in Dimondale at lunchtime, then camp that night at Woldumar Nature Center on Old Lansing Road in Delta Township. The Village of Dimondale will host lunch for the paddlers of the Grand River Expedition , welcoming them at a 2 p.m. ceremony on July 17. The lunch and ceremony will take place in Dimondale at the end of S. Washington Street at the proposed park site on the Grand River. There are over 100 paddlers registered to stop at the Dimondale lunch. • On July 18 paddlers will go through downtown Lansing, including Old Town, and pass by the Verlen Kruger gravesite, Jim Woodruff’s home and Delta Mills Park on the way to Jaycee Park in Grand Ledge. • The next day will see them reaching the Centerline Bridge on Charlotte Highway by lunchtime, passing the Chief Okemos Burial Ground and the Portland State Game Area on their way to Thompson Field in Portland.

The elder Woodruff is an expert on the river, which flows by at the foot of his back yard. Russ Hicks of Eaton Rapids calls Woodruff “the topologist.” “He knows everything,” Hicks said, “and, even if he doesn’t tell you, he still knows.” Delta Township resident Pat Harrington, who chairs the committee planning the middle section of GRE 2010, calls Woodruff “the one surviving main instigator of the whole GRE idea.” “He is the acknowledged accurate source of Grand River history on a national basis,” Harrington said. Perhaps what pleases Woodruff the most is the fact that the Grand River is cleaner now than it has been in a

very long time, thanks to passage of the Clean Water Act and the start of Earth Day in the 1970s. Gone are the days when the backs of buildings faced the river because the backs housed the privies and the river was the sewer. Gone, too, are the days when whole sections of the river were covered with concrete parking lots. From the glacier to the 21st century, Woodruff’s studied it all and finds its continuity deeply satisfying. “The Grand keeps on flowing every year,” he said, glancing at his back yard, “(and) it keeps getting better.”

Historical Society hosts group from Bellevue City of Seven Islands, but it was named Grand Ledge because of the ledges along the Grand River. The next tour stop was Fitzgerald Park where they read the Michigan Historic Site marker there and the tour group was told about the stairway leading to the ledges trail. There is an old railroad trestle that crosses the Grand River near the ledges. Approximately 24 trains travel that trestle on a daily basis. Across the river is Oak Park where people come to do rock climbing. They also saw the Ledges Playhouse which was originally used as a multipurpose building on the Spiritualist campground. It has had many uses through the years but for most of the time, it has been a summer playhouse. While at Fitzgerald Park, the group learned about the memorial wall, the industrial park, Lincoln Brick Park and Ledge Craft Lane. The final stop was the Governor Fitzgerald Home after which the group returned home to Bellevue.

After a trip to the river overlook to see the historical picture there and to learn about the river walk.they proceeded to Jaycee Park where the Senior Center is and where the river walk begins. After that, they went to Second Island. There are seven islands at Grand Ledge and a bridge leads to the second and third islands which are now joined together. The group was shown the entrance to the trail that leads to the ledges. Grand Ledge was almost named

Overall, there have been a lot more successes than failures, but it seems that the failures are a lot easier to remember. There have been the goofy failures. Forgetting that I had a grease pen from work in my jeans pocket and washing and drying those jeans with the brand new sheets did not work out so well. That failure was kind of hard to hide from Jan. Spraying the grass with stuff that killed not only the weeds but the grass as well. Jan really enjoyed those nice little brown spots that I left all over the yard. Ignoring the redengine light on our car. That was an expensive failure. There have been more serious failures. Not preparing for my organic chemistry final at the University of Washington – that really cost me. Not following up with

the Vice-President of Academic Affairs at Texas Tech University when he offered me a chance work on a research project with him. A missed opportunity. Then there are the failures that still make me cringe when I think about them. These failures didn’t really hurt anyone but vividly demonstrated to me that failure is sometimes a choice that you make. When I was a senior in high school, I was responsible for taking a friend home from our youth group meeting at church. On one particular day, three of us were in my Dad’s 1967 VW beetle. We were all 17. We thought we could do anything. If an idea came to us we usually jumped into action without thinking of the consequences. In Albuquerque, where I grew up, there were no exit ramps at some of the freeway overpasses. These bridges were built for roads that the city knew that it need at some point but that were still dirt roads because the development of the city had not caught up with the roads. The city didn’t think these overpasses needed

things the right way for the right reasons. I am responsible for what goes on in this district. If there are problems, ultimately I am charged with making sure they get fixed. We have been and we will cotinue to focus on what is the most important job we have – making sure our students are successful. But because I know that we are human we are going to make mistakes and we are going to fail at times. My pledge to you – our students, parents, community members, and staff – is that we are going to fix our failures. You have my pledge that we will do what is right. It may take time and it may be a painful process but we will get things right. Some of you will not like the way we go about fixing things. Some of you may think we move too slowly or too quickly. I can understand the frustration that people feel. Our commitment is to get it right, make it right, and do it right - every time. I think my dad would be happy that I learned that lesson so many years ago.

The Grand Ledge Area District Library is asking for a renewal of their millage this August. The millage renewal is critical in order to keep the library doors open, and continue to provide reading opportunities for everyone in our community. The summer reading programs in particular allow our children to continue to grow during that time when the schools are closed. Please remember to turn to the back of your ballot at the Aug. 3 primary election, and vote YES for the Grand Ledge Area District Library millage renewal. Sheila Deming, Grand Ledge

Eatran plan supports vital service

As the county commissioner from District 5 in Delta Township I voted to support the millage being proposed to expand Eatran bus services throughout our township and county. I did this because I am well aware of the downturn in the economy and the hardship that it is causing our residents. Many are finding it ever more difficult to fix older cars, insure them and certainly do not have the available funds to replace them with newer vehicles. They do however still need to get to work, grocery stores, healthcare appointments. With wages being reduced and hours being cut it is a tough time for most and owning a car or hiring a taxi for every trip can be costly. Every day I feel blessed to have a vehicle that can get me to work, yet I think of those without that same fortune

and understand just how critical reliable transportation is in our times. The expanded millage to provide extended hours of bus service along with weekend service hours throughout the county will help those who really do need to use public transportation. As a single mom in Delta Township, I know well the value of Eatran. We used Eatran to get my son to Cub Scout Day camp at Fitzgerald Park so he could have that educational experience while I worked. When my other son was in freshman football and needed to practice in the mornings, he and his friends in the nearby areas used Eatran so the parents could work and not worry about transportation issues. As my children grew, all three worked during high school at area businesses. My rule was you worked before you got a car, you saved and then got the car and the car insurance. Eatran was vital to them to get to work on time and stay gainfully employed. Our community of seniors, young adults, newly minted families, and more all need Eatran for any number of reasons. If my car won’t start or I’m unable to drive, I want to know that I have public transportation available so I can live as independently as possible. The small offset to provide this access to transportation for those in need is rightly justified. Please vote yes Aug. 3 in support of the Eatran bus millage.

Sports Householder is player of year By NEIL KOEPKE nkoepke@lsj.com

GRAND LEDGE - Grant Householder of Grand Ledge isn’t sure what he enjoys more, pitching or hitting. “I’ve always liked pitching but this year, it was so much fun to hit,” said the versatile Comet senior. “But I can’t choose between the two. I love doing both.” And Householder does both very well. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound righthander, who also played first base and served as the designated hitter, put up some outstanding numbers on the mound during Grand Ledge’s brilliant 38-2 season. Householder went 10-1, with a 1.41 ERA and had 96 strikeouts and 31 walks in 54 2/3 innings. He batted .462 and was No. 1 in the state with 68 RBI and second in homers with 15. “The best part for me was that putting all those stats together helped us have a great season as a team,” said Householder, the 2010 Lansing State Journal baseball player of the year. “I just tried to improve my skills as much as I could in practice and to make the most of my opportunities.” As a junior, Householder was just on the edge of being a starter and an impact player. It was a frustrating season, but also a learning experience. “He’s still a young kid and really should have been a junior because he has a late birthday,” Grand Ledge coach Pat O’Keefe said. “As a junior, he was close. But last summer he got better and better and he matured. He’s a very good pitcher and could be an every day positional player.” Householder, who started school when he was a 4-year-old, won’t turn 18 until mid-October. “Grant is a big kid and very powerful,” O’Keefe said. “I had some people say, ‘He’s not going to be a good hitter.’ But I could see that, with his power, he could be very good. He increased his bat speed and worked very hard.

He believes the turning point in his prep baseball career came a year ago, while playing in a summer league with many of his Grand Ledge teammates. “I had a very good summer. I got to work on both hitting and pitching,” he said. “I got a lot of at-bats that I missed out on as a junior, and I was able to improve as a hitter.” O’Keefe noticed the improvement in the summer and then in the spring during their trip to

first game and hit two home runs in each game. “That was a great moment for our team and for me personally,” he said. “We won two, and I had a nice day. It gave us some confidence.”

Golf outings Golf outing to benefit SIREN shelter

SUNFIELD - Sports memorabilia, a beautiful hand-made quilt, a large BBQ gift basket, and many other items will be on display Saturday, July 17 at Centennial Acres Golf Course in Sunfield for those who wish to participate in the silent auction benefitting SIREN/Eaton Shelter. The benefit Golf Tournament will be held at Centennial Acres “with an anticipated 16 four-person teams,” said agency director Nancy Oliver. “Because lots of people are not golfers,” Oliver added, ”we included the auction a few years back for those who wish to help our cause and who appreciate the many items this auction draws annually.” Items will be available for viewing at the golf course beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 17.

Bids taken for the silent auction items will close at noon on that day. Registration for golfers interested in playing at the fundraiser will be accepted right up until 8 a.m. on the 17th at the golf course. “The course is in such great shape that those who enjoy a round of golf will find this four-person scramble an incredible value, as well as a fun-filled and worthwhile event,” said Dr. Linda Kimball of Delta Township, SIREN’s Fund Development and Public Relations Committee Chairperson. Check-in time for the event is 7:30 a.m. The fee is $65 per person, or $260 per team. Registration fees include continental breakfast, lunch, 18 holes of golf plus cart, and a goodie bag and prizes. Proceeds from The Eaton Classic tournament benefit survivors of domestic violence and homeless

families residing in Eaton County. For more information about the silent auction or the Eaton Classic Golf Tournament, contact Cindie Filko at SIREN/Eaton Shelter at 517-543-0748.

EATON CO. - After hearing that more than 500 households seeking emergency shelter due to homelessness or domestic violence were turned away last year when Eaton County’s only shelter was full, several businesses in the Grand Ledge and Delta Township area have agreed to help the SIREN/Eaton Shelter serve more Eaton County families this year. A golf outing planned for Saturday, July 17 is at the center of this fundraising effort. For the past 10 years, Millbrook Printing in Grand Ledge, along with The Masters Pro Shop, has spearheaded a golf outing to raise money for the shelter. More recently, Eaton Federal Savings, WalMart, Dr. Scott Stevenson, DDS, the Norris (Allstate) Agency on Waverly, and Grand Ledge Ford have joined in the effort. Other sponsors this year include Dornbos Signs, Public Policy Associates, Layton Richardson, Ron Pohl, and Career Quest Learning Centers. This year, people who want to help the shelter may also drop off supplies for SIREN at Grand Ledge Ford during the week of the golf outing. Needed items include bathroom tissue, paper towels, feminine products, dish soap, laundry detergent, and diapers, especially in sizes 4, 5, and 6. “SIREN is deeply indebted to all of our partners in the business community,” said the Hon. Thomas S. Eveland, President of SIREN’s Board of Directors. “The need is great, but resources are scarce this year.

News in brief Adopt-a-Highway volunteers needed for July 10 and 11

Move-in day, 1837, was snowy, frosty affair The second settler in Oneida Township was Samuel Preston. In 1835 he located in Lenawee County. In the fall of 1836 he paid Stephen Perkins $12 to locate and purchase 160 acres of land for him in the Grand River Valley. Early in January 1837, Samuel left to visit his new purchase. Once reaching Chester Township, he stopped overnight with Robert Wheaton. At that time only nine families had settled on the route between Jackson and Wheaton, a distance of 45 miles. The next day the two men went on to Preston’s land, which was covered with a thick growth of “gigantic trees.” The next day Samuel Preston returned to Lenawee County. Shortly thereafter on Feb. 2, he set out with his family and two oxteams, including all his household effects, for their future home in Oneida. They followed paths previous settlers had cut through the forests. After three days they arrived in Chester Township at Asa Fuller’s near Wheaton’s. Aided by the two men, Preston began cutting a new roadway for his oxen

- that is what makes my school special.

New Covenant Christian School We were hopeful that this could be the environment our child needed for success and that truth is evident to us now on a routine basis. With a full school year almost behind us, we have seen a tremendous change in our child. His attitudes toward school and homework have completely turned around. He knows that his teachers and his parents are there to help him do his best and he knows that we all really do care, not just about how well he is doing in school, but about him as a person. He has grown so much this year in all areas of his life and he no longer feels defeated. His fun-loving personality has returned and as parents, we are enjoying the young man he is becoming. He has even started thinking and talking about what his future might hold, including wanting to begin looking at colleges. The value we have received from our child attending New Covenant is priceless. Audrey Kimmey - Parent

Lois Goldie (Tyler) Dick

On July 6, 2010 Lois Dick, age 83, recently of Houston, TX but a life-long resident of Grand Ledge, joined her parents Gaylord and Goldie (Betz) Tyler, her husband Robert L. (Larry) Dick and son Randy D. Dick in eternal peaceful rest. Lois is survived by her sons Larry David and his wife Jean of Cypress, TX, Dennis and his wife Diane, and Robert and his wife Maxine, all of Grand Ledge. She is also survived by her brother Boyd Tyler and his wife Merle of Grand Ledge, 11 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Lois was born in Wacousta, MI on November 6, 1926 but moved to Grand Ledge at a very young age. She graduated from Grand Ledge High School in 1943 and immediately started her career as a legal secretary at Auto Owner’s Insurance Company in Lansing. She enjoyed her work and missed it after her retirement. She loved to sing and dance and she really enjoyed performing in the Grand Ledge Follies for many years. She also looked forward to December every year when she would be a part of the Holiday Wishes program. Lois was an accomplished pianist and enjoyed playing whenever she had the opportunity. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 N. Michigan Avenue, Floor 17, Chicago, IL 606017633.
