Martha Mildred Kaskey

May 7, 1914 — March 1, 2010

There will be a visitation and memorial service for Martha M. Kaskey of Baraga, formerly of Arnheim, on Saturday, May 22, 2010, starting at 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. respectively at the Mission United Lutheran Church in Pelkie with the Rev. John Autio officiating. A luncheon will immediately follow the service in the Fellowship Hall. Internment has taken place in the Pelkie Cemetary. Martha passed away at the age of 95 on March 1, 2010 at Bayside Village in L'Anse. Martha was born May 7, 1914 in Baraga, MI, daughter of the late Christian and Hilja (Harju) Heikkinen. She graduated from Baraga High School in 1931, married Charles Kaskey in 1943 and they resided in Arnheim for many years before moving to Baraga. She was a member of the Doelle Senior Citizens and Mission United Lutheran Church in Pelkie. Surviving are nieces and nephews Michael (Joan) Kerttu of DeSmet, ID, Nancy and Faye Kerttu of East Jordan, MI, Lawrence (Peggy) Lakso of Milford, MI, William (Linda) Lakso of Novi, MI, Judith (Jim) Luttinen of Brighton, MI, JoAnn Schafer of Darien, WI, Allen (Sandra) Heikkinen and Kim Heikkinen of the Milwaukee, WI area. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Charles in 1996; three sisters, Elsie Kerttu, Eva Kerttu and Irene Lakso; and three brothers, Edward, Ernest and Hjalmer Heikkinen. The family suggests memorials may be made to the Mission United Lutheran Church of Pelkie or The Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly in lieu of other expressions of synpathy. The Jacobson Funeral Home has been in charge of arrangements.
