Obituary for Betty March

Betty March, 88 of Arbor Vitae died in peace on Jan. 3, 2017 at her home.

She was born on Nov. 23, 1928 in Chicago, IL to Alfred and Albina Schwanderlik, later moving to Lac du Flambeau, WI.

She was preceded in death by her husband Claude C. March, grandson Shane Murillo, brother Carl Schwanderlik and sister Mildred Amant. Betty is survived by 3 children. James T. March (Debra) of Bensenville, IL; Thomas R. March (Karen) of Vallonia, IN; Janice M. Schuette of Arbor Vitae, WI; six grandchildren, James R. March, Laura Ortiz, Amber Blevins, Tabatha March, Michael Schuette, David Schuette; twelve great-grandchildren, Taryn, Joseph, Daniel, Bryana, Camron, Mona, James, Anastasia, Janelle, Sophia, Bryce, Ashton.

At age 9 Betty began spending summers at her parents resort, Al’s Sugarbush Lodge in Lac du Flambeau, eventually purchasing it with her husband in 1962. They sold it in 1973 but always called Sugarbush her home and frequently visited while recalling fond memories and happy times with friends and family.

After moving to Arbor Vitae, Betty enjoyed sports and outdoor activities. She loved to travel and explore, and had a great sense of adventure. She always made time to help out at her daughter’s restaurant and motel where her customer service skills and friendly manner shined. In her later years, her favorite pastimes were sightseeing in our beautiful northwoods or spending time in her yard. She loved her dogs and enjoyed her birds that frequented her feeders. Mostly, Betty loved spending time with her family and hugging. She will be missed dearly, and remembered for her kind nature.

She was well loved and loved well.

A funeral mass and memorial service will be held at St Anthony’s Catholic Church in Lac du Flambeau, WI on Saturday February 18th at 11:00. A lunch and celebration of life gathering will follow.
