Midge was born to the late Cyril Sr. and Alice (nee Parker) Skole on January 10, 1953, in Joliet and was a lifelong resident. She was employed at Ascension Hospital and retired after 24 dedicated years.
In her free time, Midge loved tending to her garden and in the heat of summer, you could always smell the scent of her beautiful wildflowers.

She is also survived by her devoted canine companion, “Baby Boy”, who always held a special place in her heart.
Midge is preceded by her parents; and one nephew, Scott Swanson.
