Betty (Hoekstra) Burg

Mrs. Betty (Hoekstra) Burg, age 79, of Cedar Springs, passed away on Tuesday, January 10, 2012. She was the most loving wife, mom, grandma, and great-grandma. Betty loved working in her flower beds, watching the birds and squirrels out of the feeders that her husband made. She enjoyed watching ice skating. Betty was the “best” cook and baker, everything from scratch, a true “Betty Crocker.”  Betty especially loved listening to her great-grandson, Ivan when he played his cello, especially the “fast songs” and loved watching Tom and Jerry with her other great-grandson, Audun. Her family has many memories of horse back riding, camping, and the downpours of rain. We are so proud of the fight she put up. Leaving behind are her husband of 61 years, George Burg; two daughters, Deb and Mike Coalter, Kathy and Bob Woodward; two grandchildren, Jacob and Michell Woodward and Lindsey Woodward and Mark Lee; two great-grandchildren, Ivan Woodward and Audun Lee; brothers, Richard Hoekstra, Gerald and Caroline Hoekstra, and Kenneth and Charlotte Hoekstra; and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her sister, Juanita Wease and her parents, Gerrit and Ora Hoekstra. Honoring her wishes, cremation has taken place. Those planning an expression of sympathy in memory of Betty are asked to consider Hospice of Michigan, 989 Spaulding Ave. SE, Ada, MI 49301.
