Ted Breakie

In loving memory of Theordore B. Breakie, age 76, born December 9, 1926 in St. Clair Shores, Michigan and entered into rest on August 10, 2003. Funeral services were held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, August 13 at the Waterford Riverside Seventh-day Adeventist Church in Waterford, Michigan. Paster Michael Conley officiented. Dryer Funderal Home in Holly made the arrangements.

Ted was the son of Andrew and Anna (Brown) Breakie. Ted retired after 40 years as a physical therapist. We was an active member of the Waterford Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Surviving are his wife Lois, four children -- Lee Breakie of hio, Nancy Breakie of Waterford, Patricia Riley of West Virginia, and Ken Breakie of Ohio; five grandchildren, three great-grandchildren; one brother, Clayton Breakie of Tenesee, and one sister, Barabara Keyes, also of Tennessee.Note from Shiwassian Editor, Carroll Post: Ted and Lois spent all of February and few days of March this year with us, camped in my side side. In spite of all the wet ground and other obstacles, they appeared to enjoy the break from the cold Michigan weather.They left in early March to go to the Michigan Academies Reunion at Altamonte Springs, and after visiting some of their friends in central Florida came back to pick up their camper and head back to Michigan by way of West Virginia and Tennessee.

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord."1 Thess 4:16,17
After a few months "at home" Ted came down with pneumonia and spent 11 days in the hospital. When he felt well enough to come home we was brought home only to find that we was still having some breathing problems.Another trip to the doctor found with with 24/7 oxygen to assist in his breathing. It was not many more days before he died at home. They had purchased 2 lots many years ago ($200 each) in Holly and that is his final resting place.)
