Obituary for Lois Joan Manville (Fettig)

Our Mom, Lois Joan (nee Fettig) Manville, 93, was reunited with her beloved husband in Heaven in the early morning of February 15, 2024 and will be missed by all whom knew and loved her.
Mom was born the second of five children to Louis and Edna (nee Dashner) Fettig in Petoskey, MI on May 25, 1930 and attended St. Francis Catholic and Petoskey Public Schools before graduating in 1952 as a registered nurse. After graduation, Mom married our Father and began an amazing life with five children and a career as a surgical nurse. Unfortunately, this life was changed forever when our Father died in 1967. Mom channeled her immense inner strength and strong Christian faith to raise her children with love, guidance and undying devotion.
After raising her children, Mom started a secretarial business in our home town of Harbor Springs and, for many years, enjoyed her involvement with local associations and community members as well as many hobbies including reading, knitting/crocheting and writing poetry.
The last four years of her life were spent in Lake, MI with her son Richard (Christine) Manville where the love, support and happiness that she was showered with were obvious to all. Her final gift to her children was a book she wrote entitled From Shattered Glass to Sparkling Diamonds that we will cherish forever.
Mom is preceded in death by her parents, husband Elmer Duane Manville, son Robert Louis Manville and her four siblings. She is survived by her four children Richard (Christine) Manville of Lake, MI, Gary (Mary) Manville of Bellaire, MI, Kalyd (Jamie) Manville of Farmington Hills, MI and Connie (John) Kindley of Wolverine, MI; 10 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and 2 great-great grandchildren.
A small family service will be held at the Campbell Funeral Home in Farwell, MI on Friday, February 23rd. Please visit their website at to share your memories. A celebration of life graveside service will be held in the spring at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery in Petoskey, MI. The family asks that any donations be made in Mom’s memory to the MyMichigan Hospice in Clare, MI for their amazing support and services. We also encourage those fortunate enough to still have their Moms to visit her as often as possible, cherish your time together to make memories and always shower them with the love they deserve.
