November 7, 1936 — December 6, 2020

Margaret Nosko

Our dearest mom, Margaret Ann Nosko, has joined our dad in eternal rest on Sunday, December 6, 2020 at her daughter’s home.

Margaret (Margie) Ann Spicer, was born on November 7, 1936 in Alpena to Alvin and Geneva Spicer. As the oldest sibling to Mary Lou and James Joseph, Margie assumed the responsible sibling role always looking out for her sister and brother. As a family, they enjoyed many camping and fishing trips to the UP, family gatherings and home cooked meals, always filled with love and fun. As a young adult, Margie worked at Legg Dairy as a waitress and graduated from Catholic Central in 1954.

On February 19, 1955, she married Milton M. Nosko at St. Anne Catholic Church in Alpena, MI. Margaret (Marge) was a loving and devoted wife and mother, supporting her husband in his self-employed contracting business throughout their lifetime together and raising their children. Milton preceded her in death on May 14, 2013.

She is survived by her daughter, Barbara (Richard) Matteson; sons, Michael (Cindy), Martin (Diane), & Matthew (Denise) Nosko; grandchildren, Marcella (Bernie) Jore, Bradley (Chanda) Dault, Noah and Cody Nosko; great grandchildren, Abigail Dault,  Matthew, Katherine, and Evelyn Jore; great-great grandchildren, Madilynn and Levi Dault. Her siblings, James (JoAnn) Spicer, Mary Lou Thomas, two sisters-in-law, Marguerite Haines, Elizabeth Michels; along with several nieces and nephews. She maintained a dear friendship with two classmates, Carol Clearwood and Leo Tadajewski over many years.

Margie loved her family and was always happy to prepare a home cooked meal from family recipes for all gatherings at their home. She canned and preserved vegetables from the garden that she and Milton harvested every year. They both enjoyed making several trips out West to California and Montana to visit friends and loved the many camping and fishing trips to the UP and Canada.

Margaret volunteered as a voting assistant at the Sanborn Township Hall over the years. She always had a lucky streak, whether playing radio contests or frequently visiting a casino. Margaret's sense of humor, acquired from her dad, was a joy to witness and now cherish.  She loved history, had a great memory for playing Jeopardy and was a keen Cribbage player.

Memorial visitation will take place Friday at Bannan Funeral Home from 11 a.m. until the memorial service at 1 p.m. with Rev. Tyler Bischoff officiating. Live streaming will be at for those unable to attend.
