Tribute & Message From The Family

Linda Kay Weemhoff age 71, of Grandville, escaped the ravages of cancer to enter the open gates of heaven to see Jesus on Thursday, October 22, 2020.

She was preceded in death by her father, Harvey Scholten, and her parents in law, Neal and Elaine Weemhoff. She is survived by her husband of 48 years, N. David Weemhoff; children and grandchildren, Tami and Jason Sivy (Sabine, Jonas), Ryan and Jessica Weemhoff (Salel, Brook), Shawn Weemhoff; mother, Marian Scholten; Siblings, Donald and Ruth Scholten, Marcia and Tom Veltman, Clyde and Toni Scholten, Dennis and Maureen Scholten, Kari and Tom Dykhuis; in-laws, Susan Kloosterman, Cindra and Henry Marshall, Sharon Weemhoff; and many nieces and nephews.

Linda was a graduate of Holland Christian Schools and Calvin College. Shortly after she married Dave, they followed their call as Christian educators to Sussex, NJ and then Phoenix, AZ. They and their growing family became active members of these church and school communities. Thirty-three years ago, they returned to West Michigan, where Linda completed her M.S. in Special Education at Calvin College. She dedicated herself to her students at Hudsonville Christian Middle School and Calvin Christian High School as a reflection of her belief that all are made in God's image and deserve caring teachers to guide them to their full potential. Then, until a year ago, she served as a consultant for several schools as a representative of All Belong (formerly CLC), including a 6-year stint in NW Iowa. But, she was foremost a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, dedicated to serving God in these roles.

Linda was a member of Calvary Christian Reformed Church in Wyoming. She and Dave continued to be active in service there and formed meaningful relationships with friends in supper club, book club, and other situations. Many treasured people throughout the country were important parts of their lives and have been a comfort to them in the past years.

A memorial service will be held at 1 PM, Friday, October 30, 2020 at Graafschap Christian Reformed Church in Holland, with Dr. Carl Zylstra officiating. Masks and social distancing will be required. Interment will be in Graafschap Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be given to All Belong or Jubilee International. The family is being served by Langeland-Sterenberg Funeral Home.

Linda will be greatly missed. She was a huge part of our daughter Kyle's life. Kyle was sad to see Linda leave Calvin Christian just in time for her senior year. You two are together in Heaven laughing as you did here on Earth. Missing you, always and forever.

Keeping you all close in our prayers as you mourn the loss of Linda's physical presence in your lives. The photo tribute was beautiful to watch and hear the words that in Christ alone she /we stand and are His as her testimony. We rejoice that she is with Him but He is also with you all. Praising the Lord that He never leaves us or forsakes us.

Dave and family,
I enjoyed getting to know Linda. We met each other while both attending Ramblewood doing classes together and then over coffee after class. We enjoyed sharing recipes and book titles and many other topics of conversation. Her love of God and family and country was an inspiration to all around the table after class.
Then after her diagnosis, she was such an inspiration to me. She never gave in self pity, but was always upbeat and had a good sense of humor. I will miss her at our coffee table at the gym once this Covid deal is over.

I am so devastated to hear of Mrs. Weemhoff's passing. She was my saving grace in high school and is the reason I made it through. I genuinely enjoyed my time getting to know her at CCHS and I will forever be grateful for her. I had no confidence in myself and she never gave up on me. She was a beautiful soul who cared so much for her students. Sending love to all! I am so sorry.

Our sincere condolences on the loss of a fine Christian lady.

Mrs. Weemhoff was a great teacher. I loved her warm and friendly personality. She had such a sweet smile and a kind heart. She was a very big help to me while I was at CCHS. I remember one time I accidentally popped one of the yoga balls in her classroom and she didn't get mad. I want to let her family know that she was a special lady in my life. I will pray for you to feel God's comfort and peace.

Dave, our early morning class will never be the same without our dear Linda. She is probably the strongest person I have encountered and am blessed to have called a friend. She was something very very special and will always be remembered so fondly. Blessings for you and your family. Jeff and Margaret Ingle

Dear Dave, Shawn, Tami & Ryan,
After working side-by-side with Linda at CCHS for several years, I feel like I "know" all of you. I grieve with you in the loss of your wife & mother...and my dear friend. Linda had such a big heart for the kids in the classroom and also, loved you all so much. Her eyes would sparkle whenever she talked about those sweet grandkids, too! I consider myself blessed to have been allowed to share some of this earthly life with her. In the last few years, we would meet for breakfast or lunch to "catch up". I so look forward to "catching up" again with her in heaven some day!
You can count on my prayers for all of you in the days, weeks & months ahead. I am asking God to ease the loneliness and sadness by filling the void Linda left in your lives with Himself.
Much Love and Sympathy,
Nyla Velting

So very sorry for your loss .... have some great memories of both Linda & David from their days in Sussex NJ at Sussex Christian School. May God bless you and give you the comfort & strength you need at this difficult time. Sincerely - Alice Van De Weert (formerly Vander Groef)

My son was one that benefited greatly from Linda and her love for seeing special needs children reach their potential. She was a big reason why kids in his class were so accepting of him, even though he was different than them. They have become his greatest cheerleaders and encouragers...and Linda was the start of all that! Linda was one of a kind and will be missed. Thanks for sharing her with us over here in NW Iowa!

I so appreciated Linda's service at Calvin Christian. She helped us be better teachers, especially for those who needed learning adjustments. I join the chorus of voices singing, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

I had the privilege of working with Linda through our school's partnership with All Belong. She was a wonderful caring woman whose love for children with special needs was very evident. She will be greatly missed!

To my Uncle Dave and my dear cousins, we are deeply saddened by the loss of Aunt Linda. She was a joy to be around and an amazing model of a committed follower of Christ. She is now enjoying Him.

Dave and family,
It was of great honor to be able to have met you both. I was very saddened to hear of Linda's passing, as she had such optimism of her treatments, but God's will is always His plan. Your love for the Lord was very evident in the way you lived so passionately for children and their commitment for success. Linda had such an infectious smile, and I enjoyed our time together very much. Please know you are in my prayers during this time of loss. May you be surrounded by your beautiful family, the comfort of God's peace, and the promise of being united once again in glory.
