SMEENK

Irene (DeJong) Smeenk, age 84, was welcomed home to heaven Thursday, June 15, 2017.  She is being greeted there by her husband, Henry; her daughters, Leyla Gandiello, and Rachel Smeenk; two precious infants; her seven siblings; and many friends. 

Irene loved gardening, oil painting, singing, and sewing, but most of all, she loved her family and her Lord. 

Irene leaves to cherish her memory several dear friends and family, including her children, Nyla (Rob) Velting, Mike (Star) Smeenk, and former son-in-law, John Gandiello.  She was greatly loved by her grandchildren, Laura (Lane) DeKorte, Tricia (Joel) Brusk, Rachel (Micah) Lettinga, Kendra (Michael) Havemeier, Michelle Gandiello, Rebecca Smeenk, and Matthew (Kimberly) Smeenk.  Her five great-grandchildren thought their “Grandma-Great” was great indeed! 

Family and friends may gather for a time of visitation from 5-8 p.m. Sunday, June 18, 2017 at the Cook Memorial Chapel (East Building), 4235 Prairie SW, Grandville, and Monday, June 19, 2017 from 10-11 a.m. at Trinity Christian Reformed Church, O-60 Port Sheldon St. SW, Grandville.  A celebration of Irene’s life will follow at 11 a.m. at the church with Rev. Gerry Koning officiating. 

Her family welcomes memories and messages in their guest book online at www.cookcares.com.  In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Irene may be made to Gideon’s International or CRC World Renew.
