Obituary for Henrietta Noteboom

Henrietta Noteboom, age 90, passed away Monday, January 7, 2019. Henrietta was known for her laughter and open door policy in making everyone feel special and welcome.

Henrietta was born October 28, 1928, at the family farm on the Polinder Road to Gerrit and Wilhelmina (Heusinkveld) Polinder. Henrietta graduated from eighth grade at Lynden Christian and then received her high school diploma from Lynden High School in 1946 where she and Don were classmates.

She married Don Noteboom on August 30, 1950 after he returned from college. They had three children Dan, JoAnn and Gayle. Together they dairy farmed in the valley for over 40 years.

Henrietta worked at the Lynden Department Store, Jude’s Sporting Goods, and McLain Drug. She was a life time member of First Christian Reformed Church and one of the original leaders of the Calvinette program. She enjoyed playing softball for Farmers Equipment, being a 4-H leader, and singing in the choir. In retirement years, Don and Henrietta would get together to play pinochle, have coffee with the 46ers, and attend all of the grandchildrens’ activities. Henrietta enjoyed her board service for the Lynden Senior Center.

Henrietta is survived by her children Dan (Terri) Noteboom, JoAnn (Hank) Roorda, Gayle (Carl) VanWeerdhuizen; her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren: David, Isaiah and Ethan VanWeerdhuizen, Mark (Anna) and Dani June and Neil Kelly VanWeerdhuizen, Ria VanWeerdhuizen, Chase VanWeerdhuizen; Jamie Noteboom, Danny (Sade) and Haven, Trey and Tatum Noteboom, Angie (Eric) Larissa and Laszlo Archambault, Jason Noteboom; Amber Noteboom; Tom (Heather) Roorda, Stephanie (Andrew) and Elias and Avery Rennie, Dawn (Matthew) Payton Lukas, Caleb Chastagner, Gretchen Roorda; brother Gerrit Polinder, sister Joanne (Pete) Dykstra, brothers in law Bill Noteboom and Bud Neevel, and sister in law Dorothy Noteboom and many nieces, nephews and other relatives.
