Financial and Recording Secretary
The 22/23 school year will be my 11th year serving as the school’s Financial Secretary.
Born and raised in Gladwin, I graduated for Gladwin High School in 1969.
I was married in 1970, began attending Mid Michigan Community College, where I began working on an Associates Degree in Business Administration, and later that same year began working at the Gladwin County Clerk’s Office.
I have two children, Mary (now Owens) and Kurt, who both attended and graduated from Skeels Christian School.
In 1988 I was elected as Gladwin County Clerk and served in that position for 20 years, retiring in November 2009 when elected as Clerk for the Township of Sage. After retirement I continued to work parttime in the County Clerk’s office for three more years, serving a total of 38 years with the county.
In 2011 Skeels Christian was in need of someone to fill their Financial Secretary position and the Lord led me to undertake those duties. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to serve the Lord in this way.
I currently have 3 grandsons attending SCS (oldest grandson Caleb Owens graduated in 2022). Seeing all the “kiddos” enjoying school and realizing that they are being taught by teachers who truly love them and are teaching them with Bible based curriculum is such a blessing. Added blessings are had on days when one of my grandson’s pops into my office with a hug and “I love you Grandma.”
While my Township position, my work at SCS, and serving as church treasurer all keep me pretty busy, I am so blessed and count it such a privilege to use the abilities that the Lord has given me in serving Him.
