REMEMBERING MY LATE GRANDMA KATHRYN SCHAAP KOK WHO DIED ON APRIL 15, 1951 . I never personally knew my grandma Kathryn, but from all accounts I’ve heard she was a beautiful, caring,loving mother & wife who died too early in life from a brain tumor in Holland, Michigan. She was married to my late grandfather Rev. Gareth Kok and together they were the parents of Sherwood (deceased) , James (my dad), Faith, Kay, & Gary. My grandfather Gareth was a Christian Reformed Church pastor and grandma Kathryn was with him as a pastor’s wife in Hills, Minnesota; Bellflower, California; and Holland, Michigan, if not elsewhere as well ( I continue to put the pieces of the puzzle together periodically and due to the overwhelming complexity of my extended family I don’t always get it all right in terms of times, dates, & places but I am fairly confident the above is correct).
