Linda Michaels


4C-Obit-michaelsLinda Michaels, 72 of Rockford, unexpectedly went to her heavenly home on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 in Casa Grande, AZ.  She was a loved wife, mother, aunt, sister, grandmother, expectant great-grandmother and friend.  She was born August 16, 1944 to the late Ralph and Alice Pratt and she lived her entire life in Kent County.  She was a middle child, placed right between two loving sisters, Ann Scott (Jim) and Carolyn Reed (Mike).  She married Gene Michaels on September 13, 1991 and they recently celebrated their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.  She will be missed by many family members including her husband, two sisters, many nieces and nephews and her children, Christine Hofstra (John), Dan Rogers (Theresa), Ann VerWys (Jim) and Shannon Novak (Russ) in addition to her eight grandchildren, Zachary Rogers (Ashley), Lauren Linde (Chase), Ben Rogers (Maaret), Annalyse Haarer (Brandon), Austin Stevens, Nate Rogers, Lucy and Josie Novak. Linda was a loving, funny, spunky and caring woman.  She was a long-time employee at Hartwell Mortgage Company.  Some special memories include her incredible cooking ability and the meals she shared with friends and family alike. There was a fresh cookie for every occasion.  She enjoyed reading, studying, and was actively involved in a women’s Bible study.  We are thankful that she is in heaven with her Savior. There will be a memorial service at a later date.

The 2015 Creative Technologies Academy Cross Country Team has already participated in their first two races: Kent City Long Lake Invitational and their first  Independent Conference Meet.

This year’s boys’ varsity team consists of junior, Ethan Lehman; sophomores Les Miner, James Hofstra, Dawson Armstrong, and Jonathan LeTourneau; freshman, Dawson Ingersoll. The current school team has strong and seasoned runners who are serving as mentors to the newer and younger middle school runners. There are eight runners in grades 6-8 participating in cross country this season. And while the current high school team is going strong, CTA is also excited for the future with a strong and growing middle school team. With eleven meets left in the season, both the high school and the middle school teams are continuing to work hard and press on for a great 2015 cross country season!
