A memorial service to honor Marlys will be held on Saturday, April 10th, 2021, at 10 am at Trinity Reformed Church in Orange City.

Marlys was born on a farm near Steen, MN on July 18, 1936, and grew up in Sioux Center, Iowa, and graduated from the Sioux Center High School. On August 14, 1956 she married Henry Van Aartsen and a couple of years later they moved to Orange City, Iowa. They had two children, Susan Lynn and Bruce Henry. Marlys was a stay-at-home mother until both her children were in school. She then attended Northwestern College in Orange City and earned a BA in education. Marlys worked 18 years in technical services at Ramaker Library at Northwestern College.

Marlys’ life showed her strong faith and obedience to God. She was an active member of Trinity Reformed Church, where over the years she taught Sunday School, sang in the choir, helped sponsor youth groups, and was active in Reformed Church Women.

Marlys was also active in community affairs. At one time she was president of the hospital auxiliary and she also served as president of the Northwestern auxiliary, and was active with the Gideons. She also enjoyed participating in the Orange City Tulip Festival and spent many years as an Adult Dutch Dancer and walking in the “Mode” Show wearing an authentic Dutch costume from Overijssel, given to her from Dutch relatives in the Nijverdal area.

One of her gifts was hospitality. She loved meeting new people, having guests and serving meals. She loved to plan special occasions and trips – she and Henry loved to travel. Her hobbies included making cards, learning new things on the computer and staying in touch with family through many emails, She also loved to play games, especially Bridge, Rummikub, and Hand and Foot.

Her parents were John & Ethel (Vander Haar) Bonnema. She had one sister, Phyllis De Kriek, and three brothers, Norman, Merle, and Gene Bonnema.
