Kathleen Marie (Morgan) Izenbaard

April 23, 1934 — January 3, 2023

Portage

Kathleen Marie Izenbaard, age 88, passed away January 3, 2023. She was born April 23, 1934 in Kalamazoo to the late Harry W. and Cora M. (Lemmer) Morgan.

Kathleen lived to glorify her Lord in everything she did. She was a prayer warrior and prayed without ceasing. She was a homemaker, caretaker, cleaning lady (even nicknamed Aunt Clean from a nephew) and world traveler. She loved visiting Israel and Greece to walk where Jesus and Paul walked. She loved her children but REALLY loved her grandchildren.

Kathleen was preceded in death by her h­­­­­­­usband, Marvin; two daughters, Jan Gernaat and Carol Hamminga; grandson, Eric Izenbaard; brother, William Morgan; and two sisters, June Kloosterman and Christal Delger.

She is survived by her children, Tim (Karin) Izenbaard, Jim (Kathy) Izenbaard, Maria (Richard) Reinbold, son-in-law, Tom Gernaat; grandchildren: Kristin (Jason) Guhl, Carrie (Jeff) Watson, Nicole (Kevin) Sampson, Danielle (Craig) Lackie, Matthew (Melissa) Izenbaard, Alexandra Aguilar, Dana Rojo, Emily (AJ) Tumminello, Heather (Dustin) Doroh, Jonathan (Joy) Reinbold, and Victoria Reinbold; and great-grandchildren: Alanah, Kaylyn, Audrey, Elyse, Clara, Patrick, Erin, Olivia, Max, Adilynn, Charlotte, Sarah, Obadiah, Isabella, Amelia, Killian, and John.

A special thank you to Kalena Adams and family at Living Waters AFC for loving Kathleen and taking care of her as one of their own.
