Obituary of Sieglinde Fairchild

Please share a memory of Sieglinde to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.


On February 21, 2024 we said good bye to Sieglinde Fairchild of Bridgeport, Michigan.  She was born April 5, 1939 in Augsburg, Germany to the late Karl and Maria Buttner. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  She is survived by her loving husband Waldo L. Fairchild; her 3 children, Sandy Fairchild, Jackie (Rich) Kwaiser, and Matthew Fairchild (Kris Arnold); her grandchildren, Mya(Phil) Franzo, Jacob (Cassie) Kwaiser, and Rebecca Kwaiser; her great-grandchildren, Colten, Maria, Easton, Abram, Kaylie, Annalise, and Dominick; and many more nieces, nephews, and cousins both in Michigan and in Germany. She was predeceased by her only sister and brother-in-law, Brigette and Ernst Neumair. 


As co-owner of Saginaw Garbage Services with her husband, she spent tireless hours maintaining the office, raising her children, and later babysitting her grand children.  She was known to her customers and acquaintances as "the little German Lady" because of her strong German accent.  She was a kind and amazing woman with an adventurous spirit and silly sense of humor.  Some of us were lucky to be her traveling companion on her visits to her homeland and family in Germany.  Known for her huge holiday dinners among family, she loved to cook.  Reading, gardening and going to the casino were her other favorite things to do.  The Sound of Music movie always made her homesick as did the song Edelweiss.  In the evenings she enjoyed watching the wildlife in the backyard of her home.  This brilliant and energetic lady will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by all who knew her and shared a part of her life.  We were truly blessed.  Honoring her wishes there will be no service.  She wanted to be remembered in our hearts as the unique person she was to each of us in her own way.  To sign online guestbook, visit  Arrangements made with the Cremation Society of Mid Michigan.
