margaret vermeesch
Margaret Ellen Vermeesch, 88, of Essexville, our kind and loving mother and grandma was born into eternal life on the afternoon of Friday, March 21, 2014 at McLaren Bay Region. Margaret was born in Bay City on April 27, 1925, the daughter of the late Louis and Ellen (Van Wert) Burk. On January 26, 1946, she was united in marriage to John Jerome Vermeesch in St. Joseph Church. Throughout life, Margaret was known for her compassionate and caring ways. Margaret never knew a stranger and was a beacon of hope to many family members and friends. An avid Detroit Tigers fan, when not following the Tigers, Margaret could be found playing cards, sewing, repurposing different items, camping, fishing, or her favorite – playing horseshoes. She loved staying busy and was extremely devoted to her family and friends. Margaret’s strong, independent and funny ways will live on for generations to come. Left to cherish her memory are her children, Larry and wife, Jane Vermeesch, Gail and husband, Greg Miller, Kay and husband, Ken Poineau, John Vermeesch and Debra and husband, Jay Johnson. Margaret was the unconditional loving grandma of fourteen grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind several nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends. In addition to her parents, Margaret was welcomed home to heaven by her husband, John on August 17, 1995 after nearly fifty years of faithful marriage; daughter, Ellen Sylvester; infant daughters, Margaret and Sandy Vermeesch, along with her siblings, Peter, Fred and Robert Burk, Marion Schultz and Irene Bartkowiak. Margaret’s family will be present to receive visitors on Monday, March 24, 2014 from 2:00 PM until 8:00 PM with a 7:00 PM Vigil for the Deceased at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 955 N. Pine Rd., Hampton Twp. On Tuesday, March 25, 2014, Margaret will be taken to St. John the Evangelist Church, 614 Pine St., Essexville, where visiting will continue from 10:00 AM until the time of her 11:00 AM Funeral Liturgy. Fr. Dale Orlik will officiate with entombment to follow in St. Patrick Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be directed to the wishes of the family.

  1. I enjoyed taking care of Margaret at the facility. One thing i always laugh about was as she was declining she awoke every morning looked out her window and insisted that she needed to get up and shovel the snow. Or tell me it was about time i got in there. Of course after that refusing to eat everything but her oatmeal. She will be missed.

  2. We are deeply sorry to hear about Aunt Margaret. She was always so friendly and her sense of humor could make you laugh so easily. I am sure she has them all laughing in heaven. Tom and Sandy Vermeesch
