Obituary

CRAMER, MARGARET L.
of Kalamazoo, MI

Margaret Louise Cramer, age 90, passed away into the arms of Jesus on October 5, 2020. Marge was born December 26, 1929 in Sheboygan, WI, the daughter of the late Theunis and Gertrude Ribbens. She married the late John Cramer on August 23, 1957 and moved to the Kalamazoo area.

Marge knew at a very early age that she wanted to be a nurse and graduated from Calvin/Blodgett Nursing Program. She retired from Bronson Hospital in 1993 after working over 40 years in various areas of nursing. Marge was a longtime member of the Comstock Christian Reformed Church. She suffered with dementia the last several years but always responded to "Nurse Marge" and often tried to help fellow residents.

She is survived by her children: Rick (Wendy) Cramer, Chris (Roger) Selles and Kathy (Dave) Beukema; her grandchildren Andrew Selles, Eric Selles and fiancee Amanda Luykx, Molly (Ryan) Masters, John and Benjamin Cramer. Marge was preceded in death by all of her siblings.

Due to Covid concerns masks and social distancing will be required inside and outside the church. The family will greet friends from 10:00am to 11:00am on Monday, October 12, 2020 (outside the main entrance) at Third Christian Reformed Church (2400 Winchell Ave.) At 11:00am a service to celebrate Marge's life will begin inside the church main sanctuary with Pastor Kurt Selles officiating. A private family interment will be held in Comstock Cemetery.
