Marion Vink


Pella —

He leaves his sisters: Alma Ruth Atkinson of Meridian, Idaho, and Arlene Joyce and Reynold Reinsma of Lansing, Illinois; a mother-in-law, Vera Swearngain of Knoxville, Iowa; and many sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, and extended family.
Preceding him in his death were his wife, Carole; granddaughters: Hope Suzanne Kruid and Kayli Jo Kruid; his parents and brothers: Arthur John and Terrence (Terry) Gene Vink; father-in-law Bert Swearngain, parents-in-law Bernie and Lenora (Van Rees) Nikkel, and many aunts and uncles.
Among his many hobbies and duties were farming, boating & water-skiing, collecting firearms, being a realtor, and serving as President of Crown Broadcasting (KCWN), which he helped spearhead, establish, and contribute countless hours of labor.  However, he found his greatest pleasure in Christian fellowship with his family.
 Funeral services were held on Friday, April 26, 2013 at the Covenant Reformed Church in Pella.  Arrangements were handled by Van Dyk – Duven Funeral Home.
