Life Story / Obituary
Irene Betty “Peach” VanDort Bagladi, 98, passed away December 23, 2020 at Resthaven Care Center.
She was born October 17, 1922 in Holland, Michigan to Anthony and Janet VanDort. She married James E Bagladi on December 31, 1947 and had one son, James E “Clip” Bagladi. Peach was not just a mother to Clip, but also to her niece and nephews, who considered her their other mother. When their mother died at a young age, Peach was there to fill that void. She was not only an aunt, but a mother, grandmother and friend. Peach was truly a saint in the eyes and hearts of her extended family.
She was preceded in death by her husband Jim, son Clip, and nephew Bruce “Buzz” Bruursema.
Peach is survived by many nieces, nephews and their children and grandchildren that will keep her memory dear to their hearts.
A private family visitation and graveside service will be held on Thursday, December 31, 2020.
Burial will be in Pilgrim Home Cemetery.
Arrangements are by the Dykstra Funeral Home-Mulder Chapel
