Obituary of Sarah Noteboom

September 17, 2006 | Bellingham Herald, The (WA)
Section: Obituaries

Sarah (Noteboom) Bennink went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sept. 13, 2006. She was 97. Visitation hours will be from 1 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, September 17, at Gillies Funeral Home in Lynden. Burial will be at 1:15 pm. on Monday, Sept. 18, in Monumenta Cemetery followed by funeral services at 2:00 p.m. in Faith Reformed Church, 7th & Liberty Streets, Lynden, with Revs. Ron Van Der Werff and Paul Van Maaren officiating.

Sarah was born to Gerrit and Susan (Brower) Noteboom on Dec. 14, 1908 in Corsica, SD and attended a country school in Corsica through the 8th grade. In 1932 she married Gerard Bennink and they moved to Armour, SD and farmed until moving to Lynden in 1944 where they continued farming. Up until a few weeks ago, she lived independently in her own apartment and led a very busy fulfilling life.

Sarah was a charter member of Faith Reformed Church. She loved the Lord and found joy in regularly attending services and Bible studies. Having a servant's heart, she would bake cookies and, with a friend, visit shut-ins. She also enjoyed playing games (and "winning"). Playing games with a group of women friends was a frequently scheduled Monday activity. When not visiting or playing games, Sarah would watch the Mariners, read or write cards to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She seldom missed a birthday. All who knew and loved her were inspired by her independent spirit, her servant's heart and her quiet faith.

Preceded in death by her husband Gerard in 1980; her seven brothers; seven sisters and daughter-in-law, Donna Bennink.

The Bennink Family would like to thank the Lynden Adult Family Home for their loving care of Mom during the last three weeks of her life.

Memorials in Sarah's memory may be made to Words of Hope, 700 Ball Ave. NE, Grand Rapids, MI. 49503 or to Faith Reformed Church, 300 7th Street, Lynden, WA. 98264.
