Our beloved mother and grandmother passed away early Saturday morning, February 23, 2013 at Huron Woods Nursing Home. Age 94 years, she died peacefully with her family at her side. On September 6, 1918 in Hemlock, Michigan, Mayme was born to Albert and Rosalie (Bork) Roggow where she grew up with 4 brothers and 4 sisters. She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, the Ladies Guild and the Altar Guild. Mayme was active with the Zion Prayer Chain, visited the shut-ins and was a confirmation prayer partner. Mayme also contributed in countless ways to the operations at Zion Lutheran School and assisted in their religious education program. Mayme was an excellent baker, cook, and gardener as well as an avid bowler, golfer, and card partner. She loved her Lord, her family, her friends and God’s planet and took great care to show it.
Mayme is survived by two daughters and one son-in-law; Debra and Gary Jankens of Bay City and Beth Trombley-Wojan of East Lansing, four grandchildren; Joshua and Adrienne (Baker) Jankens, Kyle Jankens and fiancée Katie, Allie Jankens and Amanda Wojan, four great grandchildren, Jordan, Kari and Logan Jankens and Keagan Diebold, one brother and sister-in-law; Carl and Irmie Roggow and many nieces and nephews.

Mayme’s children and grandchildren are grateful to God for her gifts of faith, love, support, baked goodies and caring; to her many family members and friends for their laughter and fond memories, and to Sheffield Bay and Huron Woods for loving Mom and taking such great care of her in her final years.
