A Man of Integrity and Influence Cornie Noteboom, of Lynden, Washington, passed away on Sunday, February 27, 2011 at the age of 92. Cornie was intelligent, loyal, and a man of integrity. He was a man of humble influence who would want everything said and done in his honor to in turn honor the Lord. Cornie was a dairyman, world traveler, scholar, golfer, fisherman, avid hunter of virtually every North American game, and a long-time elder, leader and Sunday School teacher at First Reformed Church. He was an astute businessman, and served with loyalty as Secretary/Treasurer at Darigold for many years. His sense of humor, grasp of the facts, and mild manner helped draw people together to come to a solution for the betterment of everyone. He was a peacemaker who touched and influenced hundreds if not thousands of lives - with integrity - in the farming community, Darigold, Kiwanis, and his church. In short, Cornie loved to rally behind a cause, especially in the sharing of Scripture, and was a humble fix-it person who gained the trust and respect of his entire community. And he loved teaching the nurses at the nursing home a few Dutch words right up until the end. Cornie was preceded in death by his brother, Russell Noteboom, and daughter-in-law, Joan Noteboom. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 70 years, Alma (his little sweetheart his myn meisje lieveling); children, Irwin (Marlene) Noteboom, Marilyn (Lyle) Bennink, and Denny (Arlene) Noteboom; grandchildren, Kim (Jeff) Strating, Kyla (Jim) Gibbs, Kari (Randy) Fehr, Julie (Dan) Ranson, Lisa (Alan) Hickey, Scott Noteboom, Denise (Ken) Koenig, Susan (Michael) Cummings, Melisa Lancaster, and Hank Lancaster; nineteen great-grandchildren; his brother, Leroy “Pete” (Nancy) Noteboom; sister-in-law Margene Noteboom, and numerous nieces and nephews. A Graveside Committal will be held Monday, March 7, 2011 at 1:00 PM at Monumenta Cemetery, followed by a Celebration of Cornie’s Life, and Reception, at 2:00 PM at First Reformed Church, Lynden.
