Obituary of Margaret Tamminga

Tamminga, Margaret Grace -  On Friday, October 6, 2017 the Lord took to Himself Margaret Tamminga in her 62nd year. She will be lovingly remembered by her parents, John and Corrie and her siblings, Jack and Nelly, Peter and Mary, Anthony and Grace, Dave and Dinie, Carolyn and Tim and by many nieces and nephews. The Bethesda staff, her friends and roommates will lovingly remember her as well, as they were as much part of her family.
Margaret had special needs (cerebral palsy) and was deaf and mute from birth. She lived in Pine Rest, Grand Rapids, MI for 20 years, and since 1980 has lived in the Bethesda Homes, Vineland, ON.  We thank the many staff and caregivers who have been part of her life for many years, for their love, care and support.

The funeral service will be held on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in the Vineland Free Reformed Church, 3685 King St., Vineland ON. Interment will follow the funeral service at the Vineland Cemetery.  Memorial donations may be made to the Bethesda Foundation.


“Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
 Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
And the tongue of the dumb sing.
And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”
Isaiah 35: 5-6, 10
