She was born in the Fall of 1929 to the late Gerrit and Margaretha Huizenga. Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband of 45 years, Peter Feenstra who passed away in 1999 as well as by her sisters, Truss (John) Huizenga and Grace (John) Wisse and her brother Louis Huizenga.

Margaret was born in Chicago, IL but her family migrated to the Netherlands when she was just one years old. She would grow up on her family’s farm until 1948 when at the age of 18 she and her sister Grace would return to America, settling in Grand Rapids. It was in Grand Rapids she would meet her husband Pete Feenstra and they would start a family. Margaret will be fondly remembered as a warm, quiet woman who was devoted to her family and church.
