Edward Magnus Nystrom Obituary
Edward Magnus Nystrom Okemos Edward Magnus Nystrom, age 82, went home to be with his Heavenly Father on November 12, 2013. He was born in Cadillac, Michigan on June 18, 1931 to parents Anders Magnus and Ellen Marie Nystrom. He graduated from Cadillac High School, attended Milwaukee School of Engineering, and later earned his Master's degree from Michigan State University. He retired from Lansing Public Schools after 26 years of dedicated service. His students recall that he taught them even more about life than mechanics. With his mind he could have done anything; but with his heart, gave flight to others' wings. He married his best friend, Dorothy Beatrice Seelye, on September 16, 1950. He was an active member of First Baptist Church of Okemos for 50 years and served as a missionary in Glennallen, Alaska with Send International. He will be best remembered for his acts of service to God, his family, and others. His faith was of utmost importance, followed closely by his love for his family. He and Dorothy purchased a farm in White Cloud solely for the benefit of their family and took each of their grandchildren on an extended trip to Alaska or across the United States. His time was never kept for his own. He was preceded in death by his parents, Anders and Ellen Nystrom, infant sister Caroline, brother George Nystrom, sister Eleanor Cotter, and sister Lorraine Powell. He is survived by his Loving Wife of 63 years, Dorothy, children Vickie (Craig) Foerch, Pamela (Robert) Mouw, and Allan Nystrom along with ten grandchildren and twenty-two great grandchildren. His legacy of love will inspire many generations to come. Visitation will be held at First Baptist Church of Okemos on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 11a.m. until 12noon when a celebration of life service will begin. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made in his honor to the First Baptist Church of Okemos.
