MB, as we fondly called her, was a member of the American Business Women's Association of Oscoda/Tawas for over 20 years. She was the Chapters "Woman of the Year" in 2003-2004, always volunteering her leadership skills in many activities that raised money for scholarships given to young women and women of all ages trying to improve themselves through higher education. Over time, her children in Oscoda was her 3 little puppies Susie, Pepper & Miss Daisy who each got a part of her life individually. She spoiled them dearly. She was always with us (Kotaraks & Ritters) for Friday night dinners and will be sadly missed. Rest in Peace, my friend. Judy & Jim Kotarak
