In loving memory of Carolyn MacGregor Getty October 24, 1948 – November 12, 2023. On November 12, 2023 Carolyn MacGregor Getty, a beloved mother, grandmother, and sister, was gently embraced by her Savior after more than a yearlong courageous battle with cancer. She was predeceased by her devoted husband, William, her infant daughter, Renee Louise, her loving parents, James D. and Louise MacGregor, her sister, Debbie Kroes, and her nephew, Greg Williamson. Carolyn leaves behind a legacy of love and strength in her three precious daughters, Kelly Schondelmayer, Kary and her husband Michael Henning, and Tracy and her husband Chip George. Her spirit will continue to guide her cherished grandchildren, Harper Phillips, Milan George, Daniel George III, and Ashely Andree, who will forever carry her memory in their hearts. She is also survived by her siblings and their spouses, Eley and Ken Kollar, Barbie and Chris Auten, Jane and David Peet, Bruce and Julie MacGregor, Scott and Beth MacGregor, and Sandy and Jim Ahrens. Each of them will remember Carolyn for her unwavering love, support, and the joy she brought into their lives. Carolyn Graduated from Ottawa Hills High School and then went on to Hope College, where she received her teaching Certificate. She taught middle school for 32 Years at Thornapple Kellogg Middle school. She was a long-time member of Gun Lake Community Church. A private graveside service will be held to honor Carolyn’s life and her steadfast faith. Her strength, love, and faith will forever be remembered and cherished. As we say goodbye, we celebrate the life of a woman who was a beacon of love and resilience, and whose spirit will continue to inspire all who knew her.
