November 15, 2001 - June 29, 2013
Autumn Rose Prohaska, 11, of Williamsburg and Hubbard Lake, passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2013, at Alpena Regional Medical Center.
Our Precious Sweet Autumn left us today as a result of a tubing accident. She is in the arms of God, holding His hand, looking down on us, and telling us everything is ok. She is everyone’s Angel now God told her.
Autumn was born in Traverse City on November 15, 2001 to Mark and Michelle (Manczak) Prohaska. Autumn had attended East Middle School in Traverse City just finishing 6th grade. She made the honor roll for the first time ever and was part of student council. Autumn had a passion and love for animals. She left behind her faithful companion, Daisy Mae. The bed will be lonely now. She holds a very special place in her heart for her good friend, Cirrea, who taught her everything she needed to know about horses. Autumn was full of life and love. She was compassionate, kind, caring, and always thought of others before herself. She always had a big smile on her face.
Surviving are her parents, Mark and Michelle; her sister, Brookie; grandparents, PaPa Bill and Grammie Dale Manczak, PaPa Jim and Grandma Betty Prohaska; her aunts & uncles, Uncle Mike, Aunt Kristy & Uncle Brian Felske and their children, Kaylin & August; special “Aunt & Uncle,” Scott & Kristy Hale and their family Austin and Kaitlyn. Autumn has left behind several cousins whom she was very close to. Autumn will hold a special place in her heart for each and every one.
