Marguerite G. Croad-Passed September 13th, 2019 at North Woods Nursing Center in Farwell. She was born Marguerite Goldia Haenke, on May 1, in the year 1922, to parents George and Goldia Haenke in Grand Ledge, MI. She was one of the “Greatest Generation” having survived the great Depression, World War II and the Korean War. She grew up in the White Cloud, Fremont, Newago area, and attended a Beauty College in Lansing. During the early 1940’s she married Dale Croad and owned and operated her own beauty salon in Lake City. After the war they operated a farm north of Lake City, later moving to another farm in Gratiot County. In the early 1950’s they traveled throughout Michigan as she worked along side Dale as his help building summer cottages. In 1954 they moved to Williamston near Lansing, where she once again worked as a beautician. They moved to the Farwell area in 1963 where they built their final permanent home and she operated the “Bird Cage” beauty shop until she retired in 1995. While her early life was not always easy, she was a positive “glass half full” person with a friendly helpful attitude for all; always aware many others were less fortunate than she. She loved the outdoors and all the animals and fauna nature had to offer. She enjoyed numerous life activities, but her greatest passion was fishing. Many may remember her hauling and launching her own boat in various fishing areas around Clare County. Her home and heart were always open and welcoming to all who came by, and sharing was her way of life. The world is diminished by her passing. She was preceded in death by her husband Dale, and a granddaughter Christine. She leaves a son Michael Croad of Farwell, a granddaughter Sheila Mendoza of South Carolina, 3 great-granddaughters as well as 2 great-great-granddaughters. A cremation has taken place and she will be laid to rest next to her beloved husband Dale. At her and the family’s’ request, there are no funeral services. Arrangements for Marguerite have been entrusted to the Campbell Stocking Funeral Home. 408 W. Main Street, Farwell, MI 48622. Memories and condolences may be shared online at
