On March 17, 2020, Irene Hathaway, Cheboygan, Michigan, passed away at the age of 93.
Born on September 21, 1926, she was the 11th of 12 children of Gustav and Emma Musolff. Her husband, John Hathaway, and all 11 siblings have preceded her in death.
She is survived by many nephews and nieces and their families. Those who have traveled to visit her found a warm welcome, good food, and special coffee from the old stove top percolator.
She lovingly sent out hundreds of birthday cards to family and friends with a proper letter or note enclosed.
Irene retired from the County Building in Cheboygan and attended St. Thomas Lutheran Church.
Her caregivers, Carl Musolff, David Timmerman and Irene Coffee, would like to thank Cambridge Manor of Grandville, cousin Joanne Warren, and neighbor Teri Kitchen for the care of and friendship to our Aunt Irene.
A memorial service is being planned for family and friends.
