Obituary for Bernadine "Bunny" Hovenga

August 26, 1924 - July 13, 2019
Holland, Michigan | Age 94


Bernadine "Bunny" Hovenga went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at the age of 94 on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at the American House of Holland.

Precious time was spent with family during the days prior to her journey home to heaven. Bunny loved the Lord and her presence in this world was an example to those who were blessed to know her and were the recipients of her prayers. Bunny worked for many years at Skip's Pharmacy and later volunteered at Holland Hospital in the gift shop. She was a member of Bethany Christian Reformed Church and was preceded in death by the love of her life, William "Bill" Hovenga, in 2012. They were married for 68 years.
