Welcome to Smith Miner

Shelia Marsh Hutek, 74, a resident of Clearwater, FL (formerly of Midland), passed away on Thursday, May 7, 2020. A memorial service and interment will be held at a later date. 


Shelia was born on September 14, 1945, in Midland Township, the daughter of Clarence and Rozannah (Holey) McRoberts. She graduated from Midland Public Schools and proudly served in the Women’s Army Corps (WAC) Band during the Vietnam War from 1963-1968.


After attending Jacksonville State University in Alabama and Delta College in Saginaw, Michigan, Shelia graduated with honors from Saginaw Valley State University with a BA in English and Music Ed in 1976. She enjoyed teaching special needs and music for many years in both Michigan and Florida.


Shelia will be remembered for her love of music and interest in genealogy. Some of her notable highlights: co-wrote Saginaw Valley State University’s alma mater, owned/conducted the Summit Orchestra in Largo, FL; published a group of family poems “Dad’s Still Playing His Guitar”; wrote music for several original works written by her brother (Richard), arranged musical programs for local retirement homes, and supported other civic organizations in Clearwater, FL.

Miller of Midland, and Carol (John) Cottenham of Gladwin; brothers: Donald (Karen) of Brighton, David L. (Linda), Jerry R. (Angela) McRoberts, and James A. McRoberts of Midland; and many nieces and nephews.


Shelia was preceded in death by her father, Clarence L. Marsh McRoberts and mother, Rozannah Holey; brothers Clarence Junior, Richard, and William (Bill); and sister Jane Crawford.


In lieu of flowers those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider the Salvation Army.

    Sister, you were such a huge impression on your younger sisters. Jane and I love you so much. When you wanted to learn something, you went for it every time with great gusto. It was quite impressive and I did not have your talents nor your drive for accomplishment, I watched you with pride. You left a mark on us all..and if their is a band in heaven, I’m sure your in it. I leaned from you integrity, honesty, (you forced me to face things head on), and to never stop trying. It has been one of the best lessons I learned. So proud of you, and love you so very much. I’ll see you again. Love sis Carol
