Hallie lived with a fun-loving, courageous luminescence that brought good will to her life, family, friends, and the good of others. She died in 2016, after a four-year fight with ovarian cancer, during which she was a constant torch bearer for the fight against ovarian cancer.
Now, Hallie's Hearts Endowment will help to continue her effort in carrying that torch.
What impression will you make? Let's give it forward, together.
In memory of Otho Mathias, a scholarship fund was established by his brother, Emer Mathias. Otho was born in Mancelona on March 12, 1912.
