Marjorie Ann Boot, age 87, of Kalamazoo and South Haven, MI; Naples, FL; and most recently Grand Rapids, MI, died on May 25, 2018 surrounded by her family in the promise of eternal life through her Lord Jesus Christ. Marjorie is now reunited with her loving husband of 60 years Robert E. Boot. Marjorie's commitment to her family, friends and faith were the foci of her life. Her three children Sheri, Susan and Scott will miss their spirited mother, but are blessed to know she is now free from pain and resting in her heavenly home. Marjorie was born October 3, 1930 in Grand Rapids, MI to Dr. Harry and Josephine Kok. An only child, Margie enjoyed the daily event of a chocolate ice cream cone with her beloved father Harry, a renowned radiologist who passed away early in life. As a single parent, her mother Josie raised Marjorie instilling in her a love for the church, family, friends and Lake Michigan! Marge met Bob Boot at Calvin College and married him in 1950. They both treasured Calvin sponsoring scholarships and giving generously to their beloved alma mater for the rest of their lives. Marge helped Bob to start their own business the Robert E. Boot Insurance Agency. Marge and Bob lived in Kalamazoo for over 50 years before retiring to South Haven and Naples, FL. Margie was known as a wonderful hostess and homemaker. She loved to travel, garden and shop for everyone she met. Marge was a caretaker for the many children who she "adopted" as her own. Her life centered around her Christian faith. She would often remind her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren: "God loves you and so do I." Marjorie was a lifelong member of Third Christian Reformed Church of Kalamazoo and also attended Hope Reformed Church of South Haven and First Presbyterian in Naples. Marjorie was passionate about Christian education avidly supporting Kalamazoo Christian Schools including volunteering at the schools' store Second Impressions. She also worked with the children of Grace Place in Immokalee, Fl. Her volunteer years included working at Kalamazoo's Bronson Hospital. Marjorie enjoyed many part-time jobs: working at the Gatehouse in Naples, Fl as well as Cabbages and Kings in Saugatuck, MI. She loved to spend time with her family at "the cottage" where she enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking Lake Michigan, cooking Sunday dinners for her family, and creating unforgettable holiday celebrations such as "Christmas in July," a lifelong family tradition.
