Edna Mae (Bonter) Fineout, 85, of Middleville, Michigan and formerly of the Harbor Springs/Petoskey area, passed away surrounded by her loved ones on Saturday, July 14, 2007.
Edna was born on June 1, 1922 in Harbor Springs, the daughter of Louie and Addie Bonter, and attended the old Pleasantview Township school.
On November 21, 1940, she married Robert Compton Fineout in Petoskey, where she raised her six children. Edna worked throughout her life and retired from Northern Michigan Hospital in 1989.
Edna enjoyed dancing, gardening, sewing, and feeding and watching her favorite birds. Her most treasured moments were spent with family, watching ball games and visiting with loved ones. She created special memories as she liked to take pictures and send hand-written letters to her family.
