On the evening of March 28, 2017, Jesus came and took a sweet lady, Margaret (Van Dyke) Kamerman (91), home to glory, having all four sons by her side.   Born December 14, 1925, the final preparations of her mansion have been prepared and she was longing to meet her Savior.    

She was a loving wife and caregiver to Bert Kamerman who proceeded her in death 27 years earlier.  She graciously and lovingly cared for him during his years of illness before he passed away.  They were married 36 years. 

Margie was mom to Brad (Sandy), Wes (Helen), Russ (Teresa) and Dan (Debbie).  They were her pride and joy, and she worked tirelessly to care for them, helping to provide for their Christian education and praying fervently for them and their families throughout her years.  She was Grandma to ten grandchildren:  Darcy, Daron (Tracy), Lindy, Justin (Stephene), David (Nicole), Dustin, Ethan, Rebekah, Tim and Patrick along with twelve great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.  She is survived by three brothers, Clarence Van Dyke, Bob Van Dyke and Will (Sylvia) Van Dyke; sister-in-laws, Joan Van Dyke, Betty Van Dyke, Ann Van Dyke, Betty Van Dyke, Coba Kamerman; and brother-in-law, Chip Kamerman.   Preceding her in death were her parents, Lawrence and Cora Van Dyke; brothers, Neal (Doweena), Arnold, Jim, Ray and Louie Van Dyke; and sisters, Sadie (Jack) Oostema, Bernie (George) Veltkamp and infant sister Margaret.  Kamerman family preceding her in death are John Kamerman, Harold and Minnie Kamerman, Henry and Louise Kamerman, Louie and Agnes Kamps, John and Cena Poelman, Gert Kamerman, and Nellie Kamerman.

Margie loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and knew without a doubt she was saved in Christ alone, by grace alone, thru faith alone, for the glory of God alone.  She loved her church Bethel Christian Reformed Church and wouldn't miss a service even if her life depended on it as evident with her first heart attack in 2015.  Besides her family, she loved her extended family and was a favorite aunt to many.  There was never a stranger Margie wouldn't befriend. 

She worked hard her entire life without complaining helping her mom raise her younger siblings and helping two of her older siblings raise their families and received her education at Highline School.  She had an egg route, raised chickens, worked in the potatoes and was the janitor at Amsterdam School helping to provide for her own family and being a suitable helpmate to her husband.  She served her Savior in simple ways, always behind the scenes by cooking, baking, cleaning and babysitting for anyone in need, and she loved to send cards along with her prayers.  She was a master gardener and loved her flower beds the most.  She crocheted numerous afghans, doilies, pictures and hankies treasured by those who were blessed to receive them.  She loved shopping trips with her dear friends and always had the coffee pot on for whomever dropped by for a visit. 

Our heartfelt thanks to the caregivers and medical professionals at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital, the staff at the Churchill Retirement Home, and to those in her church family who always made sure the worship service was available to the residents at the home.  The family also appreciates all of those who lovingly cared for her throughout her years as a widow. Memorials can be made to Bethel Christian Reformed Church - Web Stream Ministry, 7693 Churchill Rd., Manhattan, MT 59741.

Rest in peace Margie Kamerman.  You have fought the good fight, keeping the faith.  Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called. 

Visitation will be held Sunday, April 2 from 4 to 6 p.m. with family present at Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service.  Graveside services will be held Monday, April 3 at 10 a.m. at Churchill Cemetery followed by memorial services at Bethel Christian Reformed Church.
