    • Obituary
      ...Marguerite, 89, of Clare, passed away early Tuesday morning, November 9, 2010 at the Royalton Manor in Benton Harbor. Marguerite was born at her parents' farm home in Sheridan Township, Clare County; the daughter of Andrew and Mabel Leeth.
      ...She married Walter H. Kleiner December 22, 1940. In early childhood, her family moved to Lyons, Colorado for five years, where she grew to love the mountains and the beauty of God's handiwork. Her family then moved back to the Eagle Church Community, where she lived and served most of her life. In later life, she lived four years in Poquoson, Virginia and another six years in Benton Harbor, where she was tenderly cared for by her daughter, son-in-law, and family.
      ...Marguerite led an active life of church and community service. She was a lifelong member and tireless volunteer at Eagle Church of God, charter supporter of Eagle Village for troubled youth, dedicated church camp volunteer, member of the Clare Book Club, enthusiastic 4-H supported, Cub Scout den mother, and a perennial Voter Election Services worker.
      ...Marguerite pursued a life-long love of learning. She enjoyed reading, music, and travel. She was an avid gardener, dedicated homemaker, and gifted seamstress and quilter. Marguerite was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother who cherished her family and friends. She was loved and valued in return and will be sadly missed. Most of all, Marguerite lived her life for the Glory of God and in service to her neighborhood and community.
      ...She is survived by her four children, Diana (Albert) Liedtke of Benton Harbor, Loretta Hoffer of Indianapolis, Indiana, Michael Kleiner of Poquoson, Virginia and Valerie Larson of Saginaw; seven grandchildren and ten great-grand children; three sister-in-laws, Eila Leeth of Farwell, Marjorie Jane Phillips of Opelika, Alabama and Virginia Kleiner of Findlay, Ohio. She was a beloved aunt to many nieces and nephews of several generations.
      ...Marguerite was predeceased by her parents, her husband of fifty-four years, her sisters Edna Hutchinson and Emma Carncross, and brother Forrest Leeth.
      ...Funeral Services were held Saturday, November 13, at Eagle Church of God in Clare, officiated by Rev. Lonnie Severance and Rev. Jereme Bear.
      ...Arrangements by Stephenson-Wyman Funeral Home.
