Lyle Ann Sprague

CLARE – Lyle Ann Sprague, 63, passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015, at the Woodland Hospice in Mount Pleasant, surrounded by family.

She was born on March 28, 1952, in Reed City, the daughter of Lyle and Melva Ann (Beatty) Hoxie. Lyle Ann was the most thoughtful and caring person, always putting others’ needs before her own. When God created her, he created the perfect angel and has now asked her to come home.

Surviving to cherish her memory are her three children, Troy (Missy) Sprague, Ted (Misty) Sprague, and Jennifer (Joel) Struble; seven grandchildren, Seth, Hannah, Abigail, Anna, Chloe, Kyle and William; one brother, Joel (Susan); four sisters, Susan, Debbie (Keith), Quenna (Kris), and Dee; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Lyle Ann is preceded in death by her parents; grandson, Caleb Heath; brother-in-law, Roger Esch; and her best friend, Nancy Herring.

It was Lyle Ann’s wish to not have a memorial service. She has chosen to have a celebration of life gathering, which will be at a later date.

Arrangements are by the Mohnke Funeral Home in Big Rapids. Share a memory or express condolences at mohnkefuneralhome.com.
