Ruth Kaashoek, passed away on Saturday, April 15, 2017 and enjoyed Easter morning in the presence of her loving Savior.
Ruth was known for her servant spirit which expressed itself in her quiet way behind the scenes in so many tangible ways…many hours writing encouraging cards, extended conversations, and numerous photo memories of the entire family. She was a huge fan of the Christ Memorial choir and music and would attend multiple services to hear it all twice. Her nurturing ministry will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her loving husband, Garry; children, Gay Kaashoek, Garth & Lynn Kaashoek, Steve & Kerry Barkel, Kurt & Cathy Kaashoek; grandchildren, Jennifer & Brad Prince, Julie & Ian Kobes, John & Ruth Barkel and Kevin and Conor Kaashoek; great-grandchildren, Alexis, Elyse, and Laura Prince, Andrew and Lylah Kobes, Allison, Piper, and James Barkel; sisters and brother, Bernice & Jack Dykema, Gary & Judy De Haan, Marge & John Kuyers, and sister-in-law, Leona & Randy Kool.
