Kathryn Lock ’47 Kornoelje
Kathryn J. Kornoelje, age 93, of Grand Rapids, went to be with her Lord on Saturday, May 4, 2019.
She is survived by her children Joanne Kornoelje of Montclair, NJ; Carol and John Boruta of Mason, MI; and Sheryl and Jose Santos of Holland, MI; grandchildren Sarah, David and Andrea Boruta; and great grandchildren Mackenzie and Connor.
Kathryn was a graduate of Hope College and taught mathematics before marrying Bob, who passed away in 2017. They were married 69 years. She was a dedicated wife and mother, creating a welcoming home for her children, grandchildren, and friends. Her infectious high spirits, good humor and contentment in life inspired those around her to the end.
Throughout her life she especially loved her family, her children, her church and her garden. She was a welcoming and excellent hostess, often at their cottage in Spring Lake with her favorite chocolate desserts. They loved to travel and later in life spent winters in Florida. She was a life-time member of Bethany Reformed Church, now Orchard Hill Reformed.
