Obituary for Mary Jane Walberg

Mary Jane Walberg, of Milford Twp., passed away in the care of her family June 26, 2016. She was 88 years old.

Born Jan 7, 1928 in Detroit, Michigan, as Mary Jane Saunders, she was the only child of Charles and Ruth (Pelleau) Saunders. Mary was born and raised in the Detroit community, and was a graduate of the Detroit High School of Commerce.

Following graduation, Mary secured employment with Hudsons on Woodward Ave working first in Accounting and then Sales. She moved to the Burroughs Corporation in 1948, where she worked as the night shift Supervisor. She inspected and configured business machines to be used throughout the world. Her night shift schedule also permitted her to attended classes at Wayne University, presently known as Wayne State University, where she studied Liberal Arts for two years, until her parents and she moved to Oakland County.

Not long after moving, she met her husband-to- be and co-worker, Robert Bruce Walberg. Robert was a young veteran of WWII who was injured in Wales during his training for the invasion of Normandy. Mary and Robert soon fell in love and were married in Angola, Indiana. Mary subsequently left her position at Burroughs.

Mary and Robert Walberg shared 60 years of marriage before Robert passed away in 2011. In their marriage, they were blessed with four daughters Donna, Nancy, Susan and Linda.

Mrs. Walberg was a loving, generous woman, and exemplary in her career as a wife, mother, home-maker and care-giver. She enjoyed camping in Upper Michigan and Canada, and spending the summers at their cottage in Glen Arbor. She was very proud of her daughters in each of theirs chosen professions, and she adored her grandchildren and kitties.

Mary is survived by her daughters Donna (Gerald) Brown, Nancy (Walter) Moser, Susan (David) Garchow, Linda (Daniel McCavera) Walberg, 10 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. Extended family and dear friends join Mrs. Walberg’s family in mourning her passing and giving thanks to God for her life among them.
