On Friday, November 22, 2019, Myrtle C. (DeWit) Jager, age 94, of Cutlerville, went to serve the Lord in heaven. A true servant of the Lord has gone to join her husband of 70 years, George, who preceded her to heaven. While she was here with us, she enjoyed spending time in her garden at home and teaching Sunday School at Pinegate Community Chapel. She also worked at the Calvinist Cadet Corps office. Myrtle made a difference in her community but also in her family. When you think of everything you could ever ask for in a sister, cousin, mother, grandmother, and wife, she was all of those things. For those who lived out of state, she kept in contact with handwritten notes. She would mention something about her day or week, ask how we were, and let us know that we were in her prayers. She sincerely cared for others and placed God, her family, and people in need before her own needs. Not to mention her blueberry, apple, rhubarb pies, and custom made baked goods catered to everyone's liking. Holiday family gatherings were in the comfort of her house. Her birthday happened to fall on Halloween, and all of us grandkids knew that grandma had first pick of candy from each of us when we returned home from trick-or-treating. She is leaving behind a family that loved her dearly, but we know that she is truly where she wants to be, at home in heaven with her loving husband, and her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Robert and Jane Jager, Barbara and Peter Kooreman, Beverly and Joel DeYoung; her grandchildren, Rob and Jenn Jager, Mike and Erica Jager, Matt and Sammy Kooreman, Mike and Jessica Kooreman, Mary and Steve DeBoer, Marcy and Raidel Leon, Scott and Erin DeYoung, Jodi DeYoung; and 18 great grandchildren. Visitation will be held on Monday, November 25, from 9:30 - 10:30 AM at Trinity United Reformed Church, 7350 Kalamazoo Ave. SE, where the funeral service will begin at 10:30 AM. Rev. Brian Vos will be officiating. Interment in Rosedale Memorial Park. Memorial contributions may be made to Zion Christian School or Camp Roger.
