Obituary for Margaret Starner-Daschke

Margaret Celia Starner-Daschke, age 90 of Berkley since 1952, passed away peacefully on February 15, 2018 at Woodward Hills Nursing Center, Bloomfield Hills, surrounded by family, friends, and caregivers. She was born May 18, 1927 in Detroit to William and Martha Szpount.

Margaret will be remembered for her love and dedication to her family and her passion for cooking, especially Polish cuisine. She was a longtime parishioner of Our Lady of La Salette Catholic Church and enjoyed bowling. Most of all, she loved her family and friends. Her greatest joy was making others happy—to know her was to love her.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Melvin Starner (1994); husband of 10 years, Joseph Daschke (2009); her parents; and her sister, Rita Golembiewski.

The family will receive friends Sunday 3-7 PM at the Sawyer-Fuller Funeral Home, 2125 12 Mile Road, Berkley (2 blks W of Woodward). Funeral service will be Monday 11 AM at the funeral home.
