Marjorie Ruth Klamer

August 9, 1926February 22, 2021

Marjorie Klamer, age 94, went to be with her Lord and Savior Sunday, February 22, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents Joe (Wilnora) and (Rose) Schreur; sisters Dorothy Schreur, Elaine Boone, Hazel VanKlompenberg; and brother, Ted Schreur.

She will be lovingly missed by her husband of 73 years, Maynard Klamer; children Robert (Gail) Klamer, Marilyn (Ed) Westhouse, Maynard (Linda) Klamer, Monica (Tim) Steffen, Shelli (Gordon) Berkenpas; special nephew, Bruce (Kathe) Klamer; 15 grandchildren; 40 great-grandchildren; siblings Donald (Mae) Schreur, Esther (Harold) Huizinga; sisters-in-law Lorraine Vanderband, Marian Klamer, Lois Smallegan, Barb Klamer; many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Marjorie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She loved her family more than anything else in the world. She also loved crocheting afghans and dishcloths for her family and church family. She already has her dishcloths made for next Christmas. She knew her Lord and Savior on a very personal level and we have so much comfort knowing she is sitting at the feet of Jesus today.

Marjorie’s funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Friday, February 26, 2021 with an hour of visitation prior to service at First Byron Christian Reformed Church, 8541 Byron Center Ave. SW, Byron Center 49315.

I will always remember Marge’s cheerfulness. She was always so positive and always looked at the brighter side of things.

I’ll always remember your wife,mom and grandma as our Christian school bus driver for Dorr CRC. She would wait (briefly) if we were not outside in time. She knew how to keep law and order on bus! She and Maynard (and family) were long time friends and neighbors to us. Marge always shared hand me downs from her girls to our family and made many of them. I will miss her. I and my siblings have many good memories growing up with our family. She has now joined my parents (Herm and Clarice) in heaven. May God comfort you and keep you all in His care.

I remember going to Marilyn's house on Sundays. Marge would almost always make jello and addd ice cubes to have it ready for supper time. I have never forgotten that. It was the first time I had ever seen it. I still make jello and EVERY TIME I do I make it like Marge did by adding ice cubes too. Always liked going to Marilyn's house.
