Berendina Wichers (nee Wiegers) was born in Leens , Netherlands on November 29, 1926. She came with her parents and sisters to America in 1927. She was welcomed into heaven by her Savior and Lord Jesus Christ on Saturday October 3. She was a very supportive and loving wife to Will for 71 years. She was also a loving and dedicated mother to their five children. Louis (Charis) Wichers, Sandra (Fred) Olthuis, Deborah (Don) Kiner, Wilbert Wichers Jr. and Thomas (Tara) Wichers. She was grandmother to 12 children and great grandmother to 25 children. Dina was a founding member of the Bradenton Christian Reformed Church and helped with the library, acted as secretary, sang in the choir, and was editor for the Gleanings newsletter. She was also a founding member of Bradenton Christian School. She was well known for her organizational skills and put it to good use at both. She collected bulletins, news clippings, and photos which were put into scrapbooks for the 50th year celebrations. She never sought the spotlight and even secretly cleaned the teachers lounge on occasion! Her contributions were very evident and greatly appreciated. Her servant’s heart and cheerful smile will be missed. Dina enjoyed relaxing at the beach with friends and family. She enjoyed entertaining, often trying out new recipes. Family vacations were well planned and fun for us. Dina enjoyed jigsaw and crossword puzzles. Will and Dina enjoyed many cruises; after the kids were gone! Dina will be missed by her family and friends; and welcomed by many who have gone before to be with their Loving Heavenly Father
