Reta Marie Van Dyk , age 91, of Grand Rapids Michigan passed away unexpectedly on June 5, 2019. Marie was married to the love of her life, Kenneth Van Dyk, celebrating their 69th wedding anniversary in April 2019. In her younger years, Marie enjoyed getting “all dolled up” and going polka dancing with her husband. She carried a love of music with her throughout her whole life. Marie was a loving mother and doting grandmother to her three sons, two daughters-in-law and four grandchildren. She was an active & involved Grandma, attending school functions, sporting events & graduations without fail. Marie brought love, joy and a bit of spunk to any situation with her kind heart, sense of humor and quick wit. She enjoyed spending time with her family and never let a holiday or celebration go by without a thoughtful card, phone call or celebratory cake (“save the corner piece with extra frosting for Grandma!”) Marie was an avid collector of porcelain dolls and ceramic dogs; always on the look out for a “good deal” to add to her collection. Marie’s quiet strength and uplifting personality set a lasting example for her family. She will be greatly missed. Marie was preceded in death by her son Terry Van Dyk. Marie is survived by her husband, Kenneth Van Dyk, her sons Tom (Sue) Van Dyk, Tim (Cindy) Van Dyk, and her grandchildren Caitlin Van Dyk (Nicholas Rapisardi), Ryan Van Dyk (Candace Monacelli), Jacey Van Dyk (Pierce Postma) and Jordan Van Dyk (Hannah Stone).

Visitation will be at Reyers North Valley Chapel starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday June 11, 2019 until the time of the Funeral service at 11:00 a .m.
