Midge was born October 20, 1940 in Detroit to the late Alfred and Catherine Beier. Midge loved people and music. She always considered herself 100% Irish and enjoyed a shot of Bailey’s on St. Patrick’s Day. She was a part of the “Belles of St. Mary’s” where she made lifelong friendships. In her earlier days, she had been a Girl Scout leader, member of the St. Hilary Rosary Alter Society, and was on a long-time bowling league.
Her greatest joy was her grandchildren and she loved attending their many sporting events, spending time with them and watching them grow into wonderful adults. Midge spent the last 5 ½ years in Boulder Park Nursing Home in Charlevoix where she charmed the staff with her spunk, kindness and sense of humor.
