Lorraine E. Mentink

Lorraine E. Mentink, 90, of Oostburg, peacefully went home to her Lord on Sunday, November 27, 2022, at Pine Haven Christian Communities – Haven Drive.

Lorraine was born on October 1, 1932, to Benjamin and Effie (Prinsen) Schreurs in Cedar Grove. She attended Cedar Grove High School. On May 21, 1954, Lorraine married Meryl Mentink in Cedar Grove.

During their retirement years, Meryl and Lorraine enjoyed running an onion blossom stand fundraising for charity at various local events and transported motor homes throughout the whole nation for Morgan Drive Away.
