In memory of

   Geraldine DeWitt



Geraldine DeWitt (Engbrenghof), most recently of East Grand Rapids. Geri's life on earth ended rather abruptly on Thursday, March 5, 2009 after a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in January. During her final weeks, she was characteristically brave and strong and was able to spend quality time with the people she cherished. Vivacious and feisty, smart and resourceful, intuitive and decisive, creative and artistic, caring and generous, intelligent and inquisitive, her life was filled with wonderful experiences. She believed in actively following her passions, primarily focusing on her family, of whom she was very proud. After retiring from her teaching career, Geri was blessed to be able to spend many years pursuing the things that gave her joy and fulfillment - friendship, reading, traveling, lifelong learning, photography, and all things Japanese. Geri was predeceased by her husband, Jim in 2003. She leaves behind her loving family; sons, Jim (Linda) DeWitt Jr., Chris (Sandy) DeWitt, Tony (Angie) DeWitt; daughter, Cindy (Steve) Allen; grandchildren, Fiona (Kelly), Gerrit (Heather), Iain, Roland (Cathy), Mark, Richard, Rebecca, Cole and Carly; brother, Lewis (Corinne) Engbrenghof; nieces, Linda, Jill and Pamela; very special friends, Jackie Garter and Marion Coppe. A private internment has taken place and a Memorial Service will be announced at a future date at Fountain Street Church. A special thanks to the caring and compassionate staff of Spectrum Health Hospitals and Spectrum Health Hospice. Please consider contributions in Geri's memory to Spectrum Health Hospice, Fountain Street Church or GRCC Foundation - McCabe Marlowe House.
