Obituary for Marguerite J. Bartholomew

Marguerite Jean Bartholomew, 88, of Lansing, MI went to heaven May 17, 2017 leaving behind her husband Donald of 69 years and family. She was born in Holt, Michigan on September 26, 1928 to Emil and Lena (Marquardt) DeLau. She was raised by her Uncle Fred and Aunt Clara Tommrell on a farm just outside of Holt. Marguerite went to Holt High School and graduated in 1947. She married her husband Donald Bartholomew August 8, 1948 and they moved to Lansing, Michigan in 1953. Marguerite loved bingo, bowling, casinos and the time she spent at her cottage at Central Lake. She bowled in 28 different national tournaments in 28 different states and she also loved riding her Arctic Cat snowmobile. Having no daughters herself, she loved her granddaughters like they were her own and treated her grandsons just the same. She lived her life teaching us all how to give unending forgiveness and love unconditionally.

Marguerite was preceded in death by her parents (Emil and Lena DeLau); her aunt and uncle (Fred and Clara Tommrell); her sisters, (Lorraine, Francis and Catherine (Kitty); her brothers, (Ferdinand and Robert); her son, (Steven Bartholomew); and her grandson (Jacob Bartholomew).

Surviving to cherish her memory are her husband, Donald Bartholomew; sons, Robin (Linda) Bartholomew, Kim Bartholomew; grandchildren, Stephanie Bartholomew, Allison Bartholomew, Joshua (Christine) Bartholomew, Julia Bartholomew, Jason Bartholomew, Corey (Kristen) Lewis, Joy (Kevin) Bartnick, Jonathan (Bridget) Bartholomew, Mary (Rob) Oliver, Liza (Dale) Wethy; and 18 great grandchildren.
