CHRISTINE LYNN SCHOEPPE


March 26, 1953 – June 10, 2018

Christine “Chrissy” Lynn Schoeppe, age 65, of Maricopa, Arizona passed away into eternal life with her family by her side on Friday, June 10, 2018. Christine was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan to Lyman and Joan Gates, of Cedar Springs, Michigan. She was preceded in death by her brother, Steve, and father, Lyman. She is survived by her mother, Joan, and brothers, Curt and Bryan, along with her husband of 18 years, Jay. There are also may aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, in-laws and dear friends. Chrissy will be dearly missed by everyone she came in contact with, a loving and caring person who never complained about anything or anyone. She loved traveling with her husband Jay, as they were always seeking adventure in the USA and abroad with warmer climates in the winter months, and making many friends along the way. She was wonderful homemaker, cook, and gardener and truly loved to do all things with a positive attitude! A memorial gathering will be held at the Rockford Community Cabin on Sunday, August 19, from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m., 220 N. Monroe, Rockford, MI  49341.

What’s “bugging” you in our streams?


OUT-Stream-monitoringIn many cases we think bugs are a nuisance, but bugs in a stream can be very useful.  Stream insects are a good measure of water quality.  Unlike fish, stream insects cannot move around much so they are less able to escape the effects of sediment and other pollutants that diminish water quality.  Stream insects can also be easily identified.

Trout Unlimited National and Michigan Trout Unlimited will be holding a Stream Insect Monitoring Event on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Rockford Community Cabin – 220 North Monroe Street in Rockford.  Volunteers will be assigned to a monitoring group with a team leader.  Each group will collect and identify insects from different stream sites in the Rogue River watershed. You don’t need any experience with stream insects to participate and all ages are welcome.

What will you need?  Please RSVP to Jamie Vaughan at jvaughan@tu.org or 312-391-4760 if you would like to attend.  Lunch will be provided for all volunteers.  Please bring waders if you have them and dress for the weather conditions. Children under 16 years old need to be accompanied by an adult.
