Viola E. Duby

Died March 6, 2018


Viola E. Duby, 82, of Roscommon died at home March 6, 2018.

Viola was born Nov. 23, 1935, in Bloomfield Township to Leroy and Cora A. (Cornish) Newsome. She married Eugene M. Duby on June 27, 1953, in Au Gres. She was a punch press operator at Bopp-Busch Manufacturing in Au Gres for more than 30 years, retiring in 1998. She lived in Au Gres until 2013, moving to Twining for three years and then moving to Roscommon two years ago. She loved getting together with family during the holidays and making Christmas cookies for family and friends. She enjoyed embroidering, fishing, polkas, country and western music, but most of all she loved her grandchildren.

She is survived by her children, Cindy (Billy) Petrey of Fyffe, Ala., Julie (Randy) McDonald of Twining, Lou Ann (Keith) Ganshorn of Lachine, Carolyn (Tim) Near of Roscommon, Rose Wilmot of Raywood, Texas, and Marvin Duby of Au Gres; 22 grandchildren; 44 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandson; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene; daughter, Diana Lynn Duby; grandson, George Schlagel III; parents; sisters, Violet Armstead and Iola Newsome; and brothers, Frank, Ed, Lloyd and Ray Newsome.

Private family services will be held later, and Viola will be buried in Linwood Cemetery, Au Gres. Memorials may be made to Arenac County Council on Aging, P.O. Box 36, Omer, MI 48749. Arrangements by Walsh Funeral Home, Roscommon.
