“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:7-8) This Scripture was used in her father’s last sermon on December 25, 1959, before he was called home unexpectedly that afternoon. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to Grandville Calvin Christian Schools.
