On behalf of the family of Frank and Elizabeth Mwakasisi, I would like to inform you that the Mwakasisi family plans the funeral service for their beloved wife and mother on Saturday September 18, 2010 in Portage, Michigan. The funeral service will start with visitation, followed by memorial service, burial service and reception to celebrate Elizabeth's life.
