WILLIAMSBURG — Autumn Rose Prohaska, 11, of Williamsburg and Hubbard Lake, passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2013, at Alpena Regional Medical Center.
Our precious, sweet Autumn left us today as a result of a tubing accident. She is in the arms of God, holding His hand, looking down on us and telling us everything is okay. She is everyone’s Angel now God told her.
Autumn was born in Traverse City on Nov. 15, 2001, to Mark and Michelle (Manczak) Prohaska. Autumn had attended East Middle School in Traverse City, just finishing sixth grade. She made the honor roll for the first time ever and was part of student council.
Autumn had a passion and love for animals. She left behind her faithful companion, Daisy Mae. The bed will be lonely now. She holds a very special place in her heart for her good friend, Cirrea, who taught her everything she needed to know about horses. Autumn was full of life and love. She was compassionate, kind, caring and always thought of others before herself. She always had a big smile on her face.
Surviving are her parents, Mark and Michelle; her sister, Brookie; grandparents, PaPa Bill and Grammie Dale Manczak, PaPa Jim and Grandma Betty Prohaska; her aunts and uncles, Uncle Mike, Aunt Kristy and Uncle Brian Felske and their children, Kaylin and August; and special “Aunt and Uncle,” Scott and Kristy Hale and their family, Austin and Kaitlyn.
Autumn has left behind several cousins to whom she was very close.
Autumn will hold a special place in her heart for each and every one.
Visitation for Autumn will be at the Bannan Funeral Home in Alpena on Friday, July 5, 2013, from 2 to 8 p.m., with a parish prayer service at 7 p.m. Visitation will continue on Saturday at St. Anne Catholic Church in Alpena from 10 a.m. until time of Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. with Fr. Gerald Okoli officiating. Interment will be in Pleasant View Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Wexford Animal Shelter in Cadillac (Autumn adopted Daisy from there).
