Obituary for Dorothy E. DeBruin

De Bruin
-Dorothy Emma, age 88 years 5 months and 26 days, returned home to her heavenly Father and Creator on March 8, 2013 at the Christian Health Care Center. She was the last surviving child of the late Charles and Emma De Bruin. Prior to moving to the Longview Assisted Living Facility and then into Heritage Manor at the CHCC in January 2013, she had lived for over 80 years on Fifth Street in Fair Lawn, much of that time in a house purchased by her grandparents in 1903. She formerly attended the Madison Ave. Christian Reformed Church where she was baptized in 1925. Dorothy retired 24 years ago after working as the office manager and book keeper for Elliot’s Jewelers in Paterson, NJ for a period of 34 years. She is survived by two nephews: Robert C. and Gregory. She was predeceased by her brother and sister-in-law, Ted and Mary De Bruin and her sister and brother-in-law, Margaret and Ray Klemm. A visitation will be held on Saturday, March 15 from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. at the Vander Plaat Funeral Home, (vpfh.com), 257 Godwin Avenue, Wyckoff NJ. Following the visitation a procession will form to take Dorothy to her final resting place in Fair Lawn Memorial Cemetery, 22-21 Maple Ave., Fair Lawn, NJ 07410 at 10:30 AM where a graveside service will be conducted. Family and friends are invited to both. Contributions in Dorothy’s memory may be made to the Christian Health Care Center, 301 Sicomac Ave., Wyckoff, NJ 07481.
