"Margarete Hasserodt lived a life filled with love of family, nature, and community. She used her seemingly boundless energy as an activist and as a volunteer for organizations that were very important to her such as the National Organization for Women and the Grosse Ile Nature and Land Conservancy. As a naturalized U.S. citizen she was also very committed to democracy and the preservation of voting rights; she was proud to serve many years as an election precinct co-chairperson for the Township of Grosse Ile. Her biggest honor was to be named the 2008 Citizen of the Year by the Grosse Ile Rotary. Her most favored role, however, was always to be "Oma" to her four grandchildren. Margarete was strong, tenacious, a true force of nature! Her family is grateful that she was able to die peacefully at home surrounded by her beloved family and friends. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her."
