Gosh, how we will miss Midge and all of her life lessons and wonderful stories. She was a hoot! Her family was also our family, and we will continue to love and treasure them always.

Midge was one of a kind. My Mom and her were the best of friends for years. We grew up next door to the Attenbergers and had some great times. Fishing was Mom and Midge's passion. Could always find them at the Muskegon Channel..Her family was our family. We loved her and will miss her dearly.
