Nancy Bitzinger

December 16th, 1928 to January 10th, 2018

Nancy Jean Bitzinger, 89, of Marysville, Michigan, passed away on January 10, 2018.

She was born in Evanston, Illinois, on December 16, 1928, to the late John and Beryl Palmer. Raised in Evanston, she attended Hillsdale College and graduated in 1950. At Hillsdale, she met the love of her life, Howard Bitzinger, whom she married in 1950.

Mrs. Bitzinger was briefly a public school teacher in Flint, then resigned to have children. She and Howard moved to Marysville in the late 1950s, where they were fixtures of the community and the Marysville Methodist Church. She bore four boys, William, Richard, Jeffrey, and Kevin. In the early 1970s she returned to teaching at the Port Huron Public Schools, where she taught home economics and also worked to help pregnant teens remain in school and earn their high school diplomas. After retiring, she and Howard travelled widely and divided their time between Marysville, Florida, and their cabin in the Upper Peninsula. Her hobbies were knitting, crocheting, and the Red Hat Society.

She is survived by four sons; nine grandchildren; and two great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard, in 2009.

A luncheon in her honor will be held at a later date.

Burial will be in Riverlawn Cemetery in the spring.

Arrangements are by the Marysville Funeral Home.

She will be truly missed by all.
