Midge served in many capacities at the church, including religion teacher for 20 years, serving on the funeral meal committee and singing for weddings and funerals. She enjoyed riding motorcycles, gardening, volunteering at the Pleasantview Home and attending her children's and grandchildren's events and activities. Midge also spent 70 consecutive years with family in Northern Minnesota on the annual fishing expedition.

Survivors include her husband of 61 years, Mike of Kalona, two sons: Rick Brenneman of Kalona, Lance (Brenda) Brenneman of Kalona, three grandchildren: Blair (Larry) Moore, Mitch Brenneman and Colin (Emma) Brenneman, two great-grandchildren: Brooklyn and Caden, and two siblings: Tom (Marilyn) Walker of La Grange, TX., and Regina (Myron) Jones of Kalona, and Midge's cat Susie.
