Trena May Battjes, age 81, was born on October 11, 1937 and was welcomed into heaven by her Lord and Savior on Saturday, June 15, 2019. As a lifelong Christian her greatest achievement was spreading the teachings of the Bible and her love of our Lord Jesus Christ. She was a powerful prayer warrior and wanted nothing more than to have her family know and love Jesus. She lived her life walking closely with God and sharing her love of Jesus with everyone she met. Trena was a loving wife and enjoyed being a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and homemaker. She loved going to church every Sunday, reading her Bible, and doing her devotions daily. She loved to go to Bible study weekly at her church, Grace Reformed, and cherished time with special church and neighborhood friends. She loved to read, do puzzles, and take walks with her pet dogs that were loving companions throughout her life. Her greatest love in life was spending time with her family. Her husband of 44 years, John; parents, Lambert and Tena Seif; and brother, Leonard Seif; preceded her in death. She is survived by her six children, David (Michael) Battjes, Denise (Tim) Karsen, Mark Battjes, Melinda (Tony) Vandenberg, Kimberly (Pat) Jansens, Kelvin (Jill) Battjes; 21 grandchildren; 28 great grandchildren, whom she was blessed to have; brother, Marvin (Ann) Seif; sisters, Elaine (Dick) Williamson, Shirley (Ted) Schlepers; numerous nieces and nephews. Funeral Services will be held 11:00 am Friday, June 21, at Stroo Funeral Home, 1095 68th Street, SE, with Rev. Rick Oppenhuizen officiating. Interment will be in Floral View Memorial Gardens. Contributions in memory of Trena may be made to Faith Hospice. The family will greet visitors on Thursday from 6 - 8 pm and on Friday from 10 - 11 am prior to the service.

My Condolences to the family of Trena Battjes, I did her hair when she needed a up lift! I know she was ready to go with her Lord, also to see her beloved Husband. She always spoke of her children with love, every one of them! I am sorry you must go through the pain of losing Mom, but be consoled that she is with Jesus and John.

We extend our prayers and thoughts to the family as you say your final goodbyes to one who obviously was very special to one and all. We are out of town and unable to attend the memorial service but will be remembering you in your time of loss.
