Obituary for Genevieve Dunn

August 15, 1928 - June 29, 2017
Holland, Michigan | Age 88


Genevieve Waters Dunn completed her earthly journey Thursday afternoon, June 29th. Gege was a servant of Christ and a delightful Christian woman. She taught us not to "sweat the small stuff" and to serve and love others unconditionally. Throughout her life she faced every trial and tribulation with a smile on her face, laughter in her voice and a faith that was rock solid.

She is now reunited with the love of her life, Walter, her beautiful son, Carl, her devoted brother, Bob and countless friends, all who greeted her at the gates of heaven with songs of praise and glory!

Genevieve leaves behind, to continue good works for others, her daughter Laurie Boer, (Marlin), grandchildren whom she adored, Todd Marten, and Jonathan (Katie), and a wonderful extended family.
Gege's legacy is written in the hearts of many, to be a blessing to others and to live each day to the fullest. She truly believed we should always find the best in people and to always cherish moments with family and friends.

She loved the great hymns of faith and is now singing in the heavenly choir these words," Day by day and with each passing moment, Strength I find to meet my trials here; trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,
I've no cause for worry or for fear. He whose heart is kind beyond all measure, Gives unto each day what He deems best— Lovingly, it's part of pain and pleasure, Mingling toil with peace and rest."

A private graveside service is being planned. There will be no visitation, but a celebration event will take place later this summer! A special thanks to the staff at American House of Holland and the wonderful servants of Hospice of Holland. In lieu of flowers, Gege would want us all to give to the charity of one's choice and be challenged to serve others as boldly as she served her Lord.
