Marie Maniez Obituary

Marie Evelyn Maniez, (nee Schultz), of Hartland Township, passed away at age 94 on February 8th 2024. She was the fifth of six children born to Frank and Clara (Milarch) Schultz in Bear Lake, Michigan. Her parents were faithful, hard-working farmers, yet they still found time to laugh and enjoy each other when the farm work was done. These values were instilled in her as a little girl and it became a foundation for how she lived her life. They later moved downstate to Wayne, Michigan. She worked in an ice cream parlor, where she caught the eye of a young man named August "Gus" Maniez. They married after her high school graduation in 1948, and moved to a little house on Lake Tyrone shortly after, where they raised their three children; Augie Jr., Sandy, and Bob. They attended Our Savior Lutheran Church in Hartland. Summer weekends often brought a house full of friends and family. They enjoyed softball games, fish fries, skiing, and big family dinners. While raising her family, Marie worked for Michigan Bell, and later for Ford Motor Company, retiring in 1991. After retirement, she loved hosting gatherings of friends and family on the lake, gardening and growing beautiful flowers, golfing, playing cards, traveling with the Hartland Senior Center, and spending time with her grandchildren. She was a fun grandma who would take a surprise picnic lunch out on the pontoon boat, let young children drive the golf cart at full speed, and insisted that pie was a nutritious breakfast. She also took the time to teach them important life skills like sewing, cooking, a strong work ethic, and to value their faith and their education. They enjoyed baking with her into her 90s. She was very close to all of her siblings, and especially enjoyed long phone calls with her sister Joan as her mobility declined in recent years. She lived in the same little house on Lake Tyrone for 72 years, which provided many fond memories for the entire Maniez family. She will be deeply missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, August "Gus" Maniez Sr., her son August "Augie" Maniez Jr, and her siblings Irma Smith, Esther Devlin, Kenneth Schultz, and Loraine Baldaccini. She is survived by her daughter Sandy (Ken) Sustic and son Bob (Karen) Maniez; her sister Joan Smith; grandchildren & great grandchildren Janel Gryc, Kenneth Gryc, Tessa Gryc, Noelle Maniez White, Elise White, Ryan (Renee) Sustic, Sebastian Tocco, Nixon Sustic, Ada Sustic, Brandon Maniez, Kelsey (Gregg) LaCelle, Lotus LaCelle, Gus LaCelle, Tara (Joe) Gorris, Clare Gorris, Toni (Chad) Friend, Chad Friend Jr., Lucy Friend, and many extended family members who loved her very much.

A celebration of life gathering will be held at the lake this summer.
