Beverly Marie Anuszkiewicz, passed away quietly at her home on October 24, 2019, surrounded by her family, just 4 days short of her 80th Birthday. She was born October 28, 1939 to Carlene Seconder and Rudy Kern. She spent most of her childhood years between Gilford and the Bay City area.
Quick-witted, strong, giving, funny, and selfless are words to describe Bev. She loved spending time with her friends and family. Family traditions and holidays were also very important to her. She was known by many for her amazing cutout cookies, and her stuffed cabbages. She was always up for an adventure. The family remembers asking her what she wanted for her 64th birthday; her answer was, “White water rafting!”. Yup, we took her white water rafting. We also remember that Bev enjoyed bowling and going to Caseville. Others knew her as Grandma Bev, MiMi, Bay City Bev, and a great friend, but to us kids, she was Mom: our hero, our cheerleader, our mentor. A secret obsession of hers was collecting menus. Not take out menus, but the restaurant’s menu (she has collected over 50 of them!).
She was joined in heaven by her mother, Carlene Seconder, and her older brother, Larry Spiekermen. She is survived by her younger brother, Richard Larue, his children, Rich, John, and Marta, her children (whom she shared with her former spouse, Timothy Anuszkiewicz Sr.), Tim Anuszkiewicz Jr. and granddaughter, Cate, Vicki Anuszkiewicz, Lori Anuszkiewicz-Bennett, granddaughter Crimson and grandson Quinn; Sherry, her husband Ted Wrage, granddaughters Amanda Banka, husband Adam and great grandsons, Bradley and Travis, and Desiree Fowler, her husband Robbie, and great granddaughters, Maddison, Talyia and Rileigh.

A separate Celebration of Life will be held on November 24, 2019, in Michigan at the Akron Village Hall, 4380 Beach, Akron, Michigan, 48701. Please come celebrate Bev’s life and memory with us.
