Wren Kay Dombrowski (Spear) age 3, passed away unexpectedly into the loving arms of Jesus Christ Friday, September 18, 2020. She was born to Joel Dombrowski and Whitney Spear on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 in Grand Rapids, MI. Although on this earth a short time Wren took advantage of every day God allowed her with us. She loved all animals but especially tigers, lions and dogs. She often imitated them and had many pretend pets. Wren was full of joy and laughter and put a smile on everyone’s face that met her. She will forever be missed until the day we see her again in our heavenly home. Wren is survived by her proud and loving parents Joel Dombrowski and Whitney Spear and her sisters and best friends Lydia, Esther, Amity and Layla. She was preceded in death by her Grandpa Gerald Spear. A private graveside service was held at Rosedale Memorial Park in Grand Rapids on Friday, September 25, 2020.

Vintage cars help raise funds for museum

Even an overcast morning with a few sprinkles did not keep the 58 registered auto buffs from bringing their vintage wheels to Morley Park last Saturday, July 27, according to Cedar Springs Historical Museum Director Sharon Jett. The annual car show each summer is one of the museum’s biggest fundraisers.

Historical Society President Fred Gunnell, welcomed me to the show and Sally Grayvold wanted to make sure I got my name in the bucket for the 50/50 drawing, which was won by Darwin Spear of Grand Haven.

There was a good mix of vehicles to look at as you walked the line. Some looked mint-out-of-the-box such as Phil Harrison’s 1957 Chevy, while others were works in progress. There were sports cars, family sedans and pickup trucks. Some were stock and others were modified like Gene Nielsen’s 1935 Ford pickup he had been working on for the last 3-1/2 years. Carl Anderson had it in his barn for a number of years before Gene picked it up and started work on it.

One gentleman had a pair of 1940’s era military jeeps. One painted Army olive drab with a pedestal mount machine gun and the other in Air Force blue. Both had trailers and were in better shape than my jeep was in the 101st Airborne Division back in the 1970s.

Music by the Patin Sisters, Pat and RoseAnne, drifted through the air along with the aroma of grilled hot dogs provided by the Cedar Springs FFA.

A big thank you to all the sponsors who helped make the fundraiser a success!
