Obituary for Gale Senti

Gale Senti, age 77, was ushered into the presence of Jesus on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at
Silverado Care Center in Bellingham.

Gale was born September 27, 1941 in Dispatch, Kansas to parents Harold and Gertie (Folger)
Senti. Gale attended Oak Creek School and graduated from Downs High School. Gale enlisted into the Army in 1961. He graduated from Dordt College with a Bachelor of Arts, then attended Western Washington University for a fifth year. He married Gladys Roosma on August 14, 1968. Gale was a teacher in Prinsburg, MN and Hull, IA and a painter/drywaller in Lynden.

Gale enjoyed woodworking and reading in his quiet time. He had a great sense of humor and
enjoyed making people laugh. Gale loved talking about his Kansas home, his family and
grandchildren. He took genuine interest in getting to know people for who they were, and he
enfolded people who seemed to be left out. Gale held on to a deep gratitude for God’s amazing grace in Christ.

Gale is preceded in death by his parents Harold and Gertie Senti and brothers Gary and Larry.
Gale is survived by wife Gladys; children Chris and Jeana Senti of Caledonia, MI, Joel and
Shauna Senti of Lynden, Mitch and Rochelle Senti of Bellingham; Grandchildren Clayton,
Lincoln, Gabriella, Sophie, Sam, Joshua, Jovi, Johnathon, Elisha, and Peter. He will be greatly
missed by siblings Bob and Eve Senti of Downers Grove, IL and Karen Clavadetscher of
Billings, MT; in-laws Dave and Marj Van Boven, Jerry and Joyce Libolt, Ron Roosma, Keith and Roxie Roosma, Jo Senti, and Janet Senti.

Memorial donations are appreciated for Envision Mission, 710 E Sunset Dr, Bellingham, WA
98225. The family wishes to thank the staff at Silverado Care Center for their love and support.
The Graveside Committal with family will be at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at
Monumenta Cemetery followed by a 3 p.m. Memorial Service at Third Christian Reformed
Church. Memorial arrangements are entrusted to Gillies Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
