    I have some great memories of aunt Babe from the summers I spent in Escanaba in my youth. I learned to appreciate music by playing every record she had in the house several times. She was always so very nice. I will miss her.
    Thank you Frank, for being there with her.

    Dear Mr. Miketinac & Family.

    So sorry to hear of Mrs. Miketinac’s passing. She was a lovely & endearing lady.

    May the many good memories she created for yours, and so many others in the community, ease the pain of grief at this time,

    Nothing beautiful in this world is ever really lost – and in those we cherish they will live on in memory.

    With sympathy,

    To Frank Miketinac:

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your wife. I was one of your shorthand/stenography students from 1954-56 and have wonderful memories of your classroom that remain with me to this day. Your sense of humor and teaching skills made a difficult and challenging class fun and exciting. Please be assured that your efforts helped me immensely in my 30 year secretarial career.

    May God bless and comfort you and your family on your loss.

    Frank Miketinac,

    My heartfelt condolences to you in the loss of your wife. I am one of your 1955-56 typing/shorthand students, and found you to be a most excellent instructor both personally and in your teaching skills. I was most successful in my secretarial career, having spent 20 yrs. as a legal secretary in Escanaba; then as an exec. admin. to a CEO/Pres. of a highly successful printing company in Illinois. Retired 2 yrs. ago and now live near Rockford, by my son and family. At age 69, note that your wife was close to my age. Also, my youngest dgtr. married a Croatian man from Gladstone (Vuksan).

    God bless you in your loss,
