Celebration of life Monday for Genevieve VanderWeele

Genevieve “Gen” A. VanderWeele, 97, of Dorr, died Wednesday, Feb. 28.

Gen was preceded in death by her husband, Robert VanderWeele; parents Edward and Wilmina (Rozeveld) Van Dyke; three brothers Thomas, Sam, Everard; four sisters Laura, Henrietta, Eva, Christine; son-in-law, Christopher Sorrentino; and great-great-grandchild, Kayde.

Visitation with friends and relatives will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 3, at Kubiak-Cook Funeral Home, 4330 18th St., Dorr. A celebration of Gen’s life will commence 10:30 a.m. Monday, March 4, with visitation one hour prior, at Dorr Christian Reformed Church, 420 18th St. Interment will be at Ft.
