Mary Gladys (Nolde) Weigal, 92, went to be with her Lord in heaven on January 22, 2014. She was born July 9, 1921, in Powers, Mich. to the late Henry and Catherine (Schneider) Nolde.
Her life was devoted to God and her family. She was a hard working woman who retired from Emerson in Menominee. She had many interests including canning, cleaning (even behind the ears), sewing and playing cards. She dedicated her life to her faith; a devout Catholic, she attended church daily, led prayer groups and even visited the "holy lands," Fatima and Medjugorje. Her greatest joy was her family and making sure they were well fed and happy. She was known for her potato salad and her 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 she will be missed beyond measure.
Survivors include her two sons: Eugene (Marianne) Weigal, and Dwight (Kerri) Weigal, both of Birch Creek, Mich.; four  grandchildren: Bruce (Angie) Weigal of Bark River, Mich., Gina (Aaron) Ihander of Birch Creek, Mich., Cassie (Thomas) Tebo of Marinette, Wisc., and Kristin Weigal of Menominee, Mich.; seven great-grandchildren: Meagan Maupin, Andrew and Addison Ihander, and Faith, Nevaeh, Grace and Ella True Tebo; two sisters: Agnes (Henry) Ullmer of Green Bay, Wis. and Clara (Morris) Best of Silver Springs, Md.; and many nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by sisters: Irene (Loren) Lemery and Theresa (Kenneth) Olsen; brothers: Joseph (Irene and Betty), Henry (Dorothy) and Colonel William (Joyce) Nolde; daughter,  Joan (William) Ganser; and infant grandsons: Stephen and Lee Weigal.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered for Mary on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at 11 a. m. at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, in Birch Creek, with Father Michael Ocran officiating. Friends may call at the church from 9 a.m. until time of Mass.
Burial will be in Birch Creek Cemetery in the spring. Anderson Kell Funeral Home is assisting the family.
