Obituary for Twila Belle Mercer

Twila Belle Mercer, age 91, a lifetime resident of Lapeer passed away April 19th, 2017. Twila was born on March 17th, 1926, in Lapeer to the late Lawrence and Tinnie Hayden. She was a graduate of Lapeer High School Class of 1943. She retired from her position as a bookkeeper for Federal Land Bank. It was those bookkeeper skills that qualified her for the position as treasurer for both the Rebekah's Lodge and the Suncrest Auxiliary. Twila was also an active member of Grace Episcopal Church in Lapeer. Twila loved snowmobiling, playing cards, and dancing. Most of all she was a loving mother, grandmother and "Granny".

Twila was preceded in death by her husband Hurley Mercer on September 21, 2000, and now they are dancing together again. Twila is survived by her daughter Shelley (Dave) Brown of Michigamme, MI; granddaughter Kimberly (Bret) Caywood of Maple Grove, MN, and their children Hayden Caywood, Addison Caywood, and Andrew Caywood; granddaughter Mindy (James) Taylor of Big Rapids, MI and their children Abby Saxton and Tyler Saxton; brother-in-law Ernie (Nancy) Mercer.
