Corrie Terpstra, the daughter of Cornelis "Case" and Neeltje Van Holland Vonk, was born on September 2, 1916, in Marion County, Iowa.  She grew up in the Otley area and later the family moved to Reasnor, Iowa.  She completed the eighth grade in Jasper County.

On December 3, 1935, Corrie was united in marriage with Cornie Terpstra at the First Reformed Church parsonage in Sully, Iowa.  They were blessed with four children: Loren, Harris Lee, Stephen, and Logan.

Corrie enjoyed being a housewife and caring for her family.  She will be remembered for caring for her invalid son, her hard work, never complaining, always smiling, and her great sense of humor.  In her free time she liked to quilt.  Corrie was a faithful member of the First Reformed Church in Sully.

Corrie passed away Wednesday, January 8, 2014, at the Crystal Heights Care Center in Oskaloosa at the age of ninety-seven.  Those left to cherish her memory are: her son, Logan Terpstra of Sully and her daughter-in-law, Audry Terpstra of Pella; grandchildren: Jeff (Laurie) Terpstra, Christy (Alan) Radach, Steve (Amy) Terpstra, Todd (Erin) Terpstra, Wynette Terpstra, and Devin Terpstra; great-grandchildren: Ben (Kristin) Terpstra, Kristal Terpstra, Erin Radach, Leila Radach, Adam (Brooke) Terpstra, Kiley Terpstra, Johanna Terpstra, and Isaiah Terpstra; and two sisters: Effie Robison of Newton and Evalena Van De Wege of Denver, Colorado.

Corrie was preceded in death by: her husband, Cornie, in 1993; her three sons, Loren, Harris, and Stephen; and her four brothers and ten sisters.
