C. Michael Shiery, age 69, of Adrian, Michigan passed away Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at his son’s home. He was born in Denison, Iowa the son of Rev. Charles Melvin and Dorothy A. (Petersen) Shiery. He was an excellent accountant and worked in a wide-ranging variety of financial institutions, including Housing Mortgage Corporation, Mellon Bank, First National Bank, and Calumet Securities Corporation, often filling the role of Executive Vice President or Chief Financial Officer. For several years he worked for the FDIC helping to straighten out savings and loan associations that had failed. In later life he worked as a consultant for Corvus Group, Watkins Consulting Group, and Garcia & Ortiz. Michael loved to travel, and career responsibilities as well as vacation times enabled him to visit most of the states in the mainland of the United States. He was an ardent Christian, passionate patriot, loving husband, and a proud father and grandfather. His principles and convictions were inviolable, his character uncompromised, his generosity consistent, his love unfailing. His interest in American history was unsurpassed, his passion for cooking and baking legendary, his pride in his family and their heritage unquenched. His kindness to people was noted by many, as was his ability to make Christmas truly the most wonderful time of the year a reality for everyone around him. Above all, he loved God, served Him whole-heartedly, and lived for the day when Heaven would become reality. He is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Karen; mother, Dorothy Shiery; son, Michael (Evie) Shiery and their children, Evie Marie and Zane; daughter, Karalynne (Jason) Watters and their children, Katie, Chandler and Michaella; a sister, Debby (Eldon) Mahan; brothers, Charles Shiery and James (Linda) Shiery; special neighbors, Rob (Jackie) Clark; his beloved cat, Sam and a host of nieces and nephews.
