Carol Marie (Braeutigam) Hallman, age 86, formerly of Saginaw, passed away on Friday, April 29, 2022 at her daughter’s home at Hart Lake, Greenville, under the loving care of her family and West Michigan Hospice.

The daughter of Edwin & Esther (Zuellig) Braeutigam, she was born on February 25, 1936 in Saginaw.  After graduating from high school, she attended college for one year and when she was young worked for Liebermann Trunk Company and later for Bell Telephone Company.

She especially enjoyed making bibs, baby changing pads, stuffed animals, toys, and many other useful items that she freely donated to a wide variety of beneficiaries, setting a wonderful example of Christian love and service.

She was preceded in death by her parents;  her husband;  and a son, Matthew Hallman.  Surviving are a son, Steve & Pam Collier-Hallman of Frankenmuth;  two daughters, Linda Hallman of Grand Rapids, and Mary Hallman & Neil Endsley of Greenville;  a sister, Esther Watson;  siblings-in-law, Ethel & Hugh Stevenson, and Wilmer & Cathy Hallman;  two grandsons, Michael & Kamryn Hallman, and Christopher Hallman;  several nieces, nephews, and adopted grandchildren;  and long-time dear neighbor,  Mel Zoellner.

    Mrs. Hallman will be forever remembered by me for her kindness and sweet nature to us neighborhood kids. I just loved sitting and chatting in the evenings with her and Mr. Hallman. They always humored Kim and I with short sweet visits.
    It was a pleasure growing up and being able to have a special friendship with them. Sending hugs and prayers to all of you kids.
