Life Story / Obituary


Geraldine Martinie, age 83, went home to be with our heavenly Father on Wednesday, November 9, 2016, with her family by her side. Geri is lovingly remembered by her family as a devoted mother and grandmother, and by others as a giving and hospitable person. She was always willing to lend a hand and had a kind, compassionate heart. She delighted in music, and played the piano and organ at Calvin Christian Reformed Church for many years. In her later years she played the keyboard for Bible studies at American House where she lived. Her beloved Baldwin piano music was enjoyed by the residents who lived around her.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Harold, along with her great granddaughter, Grace Olivia Tubergan.

Geri is survived by her daughters, Valorie (Bill) Weerstra, and Vicki (Tom) Lowing; grandchildren, Mitchell Weerstra, Kristin (Brandon) Tubergan, Kate Goff and Rob Goff; great-grandchildren, Jack and Emily Tubergan; brother, Julian (Carolyn) Bouwer; sister, Glenda (Morris) Gort; sister, Rosalyn (Julian) Smit; sister-in-law, Florence Martinie; brother-in-law, Theodore (Betty) Martinie; sister-in-law, Ruth Lynema; brother-in-law, Preston (Marva) Martinie.
