Obituary: Matthew Mauer, 93, of Scottville. 

Matthew Joseph Mauer, 93, of Scottville, passed away on Tuesday, September 27, 2022. 

Matt was born April 21, 1929 in Kalamazoo.  He was the son of Mathew Paul Mauer and Elizabeth Kalinowski Mauer. On November 19, 1955, he married the love of his life, Nancy Lee Robbins.

Matt Graduated from Michigan State University in 1958.  After having several jobs in southern Michigan and West Unity, Ohio, Matt and Nancy purchased a dairy farm in Victory Township.  He milked cows for 35 years before retiring.  Since retiring from dairying, he worked as a greeter at Meijer until just before his 91st birthday.  He loved talking to people, finding out where they were from.

Matt served in the United States Navy for four years during the Korean War.  He was a member of St. Simon Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus, and American Legion.  Matt served on the Victory Township tax board for many years.
