Sandra Kay Kerkstra-Goodin, age 60, went to be with her Lord, Friday, September 1, 2017.  She was recently preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Elaine Kerkstra, and her step-son, Andrew Selders.  Sandi will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Mindy and Jake Uitvlugt; her cherished grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Isaak, and Dylan Uitvlugt; her sisters Carole and Dave Koster, Judy and Bob Slopsema; her step-son, John Gallegos; and many nieces and nephews. 

Sandi made jewelry and sold it at the Fulton Street Market.  When you first met her she was quiet and reserved, but she was spunky and fun when you got to know her.  There was never a short phone call or a quiet moment at the dinner table.  Sandi had a generous heart.  In a last example of her selfless generosity, Sandi’s corneas were donated through EverSight Michigan. 

A time for relatives and friends to visit with Sandi’s family will be held from 5 to 8 PM Thursday, September 7, at Cook Funeral Home in Grandville, 4235 Prairie St. SW (west building). 

A private interment service will be at Georgetown Cemetery. 

In honor of Sandi, contributions may be made to Talons Out Honor Flight.
