Linda G. Verhey

January 30, 1946 ~ February 20, 2022 (age 76)


Linda G. Verhey, age 76, passed away on February 20th, 2022, surrounded by loved ones. Linda was born on January 30th, 1946, to Andrew and Ruth (Castorf) Ver Woert in Sully, Iowa. She grew up in Sully, Iowa on their family farm with her 3 siblings and graduated from Lynnville – Sully High School.

While in high school, she met Gerrit during a study hall and instantly fell in love with his fun personality. Gerrit and Linda were married on July 10th, 1964, and to this union they were blessed with three children: Lisa Dawn, Marcy Jane, and Timothy Gerrit.

Linda enjoyed spending time with her family. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Linda loved to spoil her grands and greats with gifts and always gave the best cards. She cherished her loved ones and was there for guidance and support.

In her free time, she enjoyed yard work, tending to her flowers, helping others, and sharing the word of the Lord. Linda helped us see God’s work, through the good times, and the bad. Her contagious spirit blessed many and will continue to do so from the heavens above. Her bubbly smile is beaming at us all, and letting the world know “It’ll be okay”.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband Gerrit and their family:
