Donations sought for Fowlerville High School Alumni Scholarship fund

It’s that time of year, time to consider making a donation to the Fowlerville High School Alumni Scholarship Fund. Each year for nearly 50 years, donations received for the FHS Alumni Scholarship Fund have enabled the Alumni Association to award scholarships to members of the current graduating class.

According to FHS Alumni president Judy Epley Recker, usually the donations are in memory of loved ones and classmates who are graduates of FHS. However, many donations have been made in the name of individuals who, in some way, were connected to the Fowlerville Schools or the Fowlerville community, such as a custodian, a coach, a faculty or Board of Education member, a bus driver, a hot lunch person, or a community supporter.

Donations received are recognized in both the alumni program & a published list in the Fowlerville News & Views. The FHS Alumni Association is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.

The 129th FHS Alumni gathering will be Saturday, June 10, at FHS. Details are still being worked out. The past two years FHS’ alums and friends have gathered at the Fowlerville Fairgrounds-Finlan Gazebo, due to COVID restrictions.

Donations can be sent to the FHS Alumi Association, PO Box 446, Fowlerville, MI 48836. While donations are accepted year-round, to be included in the 2023 program donations should be received by May 5th.

 Deborah (Debi) Jean Devine

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Deborah (Debi) Jean Devine—lost this past Saturday, January 14, 2023, at age 69, in Fowlerville, Michigan.

Debi was born June 24, 1953, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to her parents William and Gladys Horton. There, she lived with her brothers Donnie and Dale, all of whom she will be lovingly reunited with in death. After moving to Michigan, Debi found the love of her life and husband, Kerry (Pat) Devine, where they spent an incredible 47 years together.

Debi is survived by those she loved and supported unconditionally, including her children Keri and John Kinnunen, Kayla and David Martinez, William (Billy) Devine, and John and Andi McFadden, as well as her grandchildren Megan, Matthew, Brody, Tyler, Cici, Leah, Lilah, Kerissah, Teagan, Presley, Tayden, and Malcolm, and her brother Robert (Bob) and Ilona Horton.

Hardly a day ever passed when Debi’s beautiful family didn’t feel her support in one way or another; she was always everyone’s biggest fan. Even her hobbies embodied who Debi was as an encouraging soul, from cheering on the Spartans and the Detroit Tigers to spending time with her family and precious grandkids. She also spent much time as a cake decorator and, of course, on Facebook. Her energy will be missed dearly by those touched by her love.

In place of flowers, donations can be made to the Devine family to help with funeral and medical expenses. Visitation with family and friends took place on Thursday, January 19th from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at Herrmann Funeral Home. Online condolences may be expressed at pjherrmannfuneralhome.com
