Cain, Mildred A.  
Mildred A. Cain Mar. 27, 1929 - July 23, 2016 NILES - Mildred A. Cain, age 87 years, formerly of Niles, Michigan, died peacefully at 11:58 a.m. on Saturday, July 23, 2016, with her family gathered around her bed at The Sanctuary at Holy Cross in South Bend, Indiana, following a brief illness. The staff and fellow residents of The Sanctuary made her feel loved like family, and very at home. She was born on March 27, 1929, in the family home on Brick Road in South Bend, to Dewey and Ruth (Syson) Thompson. She was graduated from South Bend Clay High School, and had lived in Niles since 1950. She was first employed at the former Niles plant of Simplicity Pattern Company, and later at the former Niles K-Mart, and for many years at the former Silverbrook Manor (now The Chalet). Millie was a member of Hope Community Church in Niles, and had formerly attended Community Baptist Church in Edwardsburg, Michigan, and Grace Baptist Church in South Bend. She enjoyed baking, creating apple pies and chocolate chip cookies that were highly regarded. She also enjoyed maintaining flower and vegetable gardens, traveling throughout the United States - usually camping along the way, and had made a special trip to Paris, France. She was a great fan of the Chicago Cubs baseball team, and loved every dog or cat that came into her presence, but was all second to the love that she has for her family. On September 1, 1950, in South Bend, she married Joseph F. Cain, who adored her through forty years of marriage prior to his death on July 25, 1991. She was also preceded in death by a great-grandchild, Violet Cain, and by a sister, Marian Carter. Surviving family includes her children, Marcia (& Tom) Rentfrow of Niles, Michael (& Michele) Cain of Jacksonville, Florida, Becky (& Jim) Helfrich of Niles and Linda (& Scott) Meador of Niles; grandchildren Joshua (& Tiffany) Cain, Jonathan (& Ashley) Cain, Melissa (& Brian) Shumaker, Dale Holloway, Alise (& Jimmy) Gilley, Kelsey (& Ian) Edwards, and Theresa (& Jason) Lingle; great-grandchildren Adonaia, Ezeriah, Ariella, Zuriel, J.J., Grace, Clare, Kennedy, Gabrielle, Lilly, and Davey; and Millie's sister, Marlene Bishop of Granger, Indiana; and several nieces and nephews. The funeral service for Millie Cain will be at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 31, 2016, at the Halbritter Funeral Home in Niles, with the Rev. Ronald Smith of Hope Community Church officiating. Committal services will follow at Mission Hills. The family will receive relatives and friends beginning at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday at the funeral home. Contributions in memory of Millie Cain may be made to the American Diabetes Association. www.halbritterfunerals.com

Carmean, Donabelle  
Donabelle Carmean July 5, 1937 - July 27, 2016 MISHAWAKA - Our mother, Donabelle Grace (Mudgett) Carmean, age 79, left this temporary home on July 27, 2016 and is now resting peacefully in God's arms. Dona was born on July 5, 1937 to Paul and Dorothy (Jester) Mudgett, and was the oldest of three children. Dona married Robert Charles Carmean on December 11, 1955. He preceded her in death May 15, 2013. Dona leaves behind three children, Carmen Megonnell of Plymouth, Dorinda (Steve) Carner of Hope, Alaska, and Mark (Tammy) Carmean of Mishawaka; eight grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and one great grandson due later this year; one great-great-grandson; her brother-in-law, Lee Carmean of North Carolina; and sister-in-law, Jean (Louie) Sherk of Edwardsburg, MI. She was preceded in death by her husband, our father Robert; a brother Ronald; sister Barbara; her baby, Robert Paul; grandmother, Grace Wakefield; parents, son-in-law, Rick Megonnell; and grandson, Jeremy. Dona knitted and crocheted in her younger years, which she loved and was taught by the late Marjorie Rowe during The Women's Group meetings at Apostolic Temple of South Bend which she attended. Her favorite hobbies were crossword puzzles and watching football. Her grandchildren always had what they needed or wanted and she was always generous to her children. Amish Acres was her favorite place to go and buy sweets for her family, dinners, and things she just insisted we needed. She participated in her children's younger years in neighborhood water fights, and she would watch from the porch as a bunch of “out of control kids” played kick ball and kick the can. Words cannot express our gratitude to the entire DeBaillie family for their care, concern and Sunday meals they provided for our mother and the love they showed to her since our father passed. We would also like to thank St. Joseph Hospital of Mishawaka for true compassion from all nurses and doctors as they tried to make her comfortable in her last days. We take comfort, and peace knowing she is no longer in pain or suffering. This is not goodbye, but it is, until we see you again as we walk together on the streets of gold. Family and friends will be received on Saturday, July 30, 2016 from 12-2 PM at Chapel Hill Funeral Home, 10776 McKinley Highway, Osceola, IN 46561. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, July 30, 2016 at 2 PM with Pastor David Sjorberg.
