Mary Elizabeth LaSarge (Hoogterp)

May 1, 1931 ~ October 5, 2017 (age 86)

Mary Elizabeth LaSarge (Hoogterp), age 86, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 5, 2017, surrounded by family. 

Mary was a passionate musician, avid lover of the outdoors, and dedicated her life  to her family. Mary's passion for music was passed on to her family and all those around her. She was the first organist at St. Pius X Parish, using a portable military field pump organ. She was a member of the Grand Rapids Symphonic Choir, and taught herself to play the recorder so she could become a member of the University of Iowa Recorder Chamber Ensemble.  Mary's love of nature took us all camping, hiking, sailing and canoeing; including bon fires, seaweed fights, breakfast at the beach, "petty tones" and downhill skiing.  Mary taught her family to appreciate the beauty and values that God created. Music, nature and religion were all taught by her living it daily. She was a dedicated homemaker with a BS in Chemistry. 

Mary will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 67 years Eugene LaSarge; children Michael (Karen) LaSarge, Daniel (Donnita) LaSarge, John (Jeannie) LaSarge II, Paul (Jennifer) LaSarge, Robert (Lynne) LaSarge, Katherine (Kirby) Wilmore, Jeanne (Anthony) Bono, Mark LaSarge, Marianne (Jerry) Luyk; 22 grandchildren, four+ great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.  Services will be held Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at St Pius X Catholic Church, 3937 Wilson Avenue SW, Grandville, MI 49418. A Rosary will be held at 9am, an hour of visitation at 10am and a Funeral Mass at 11am. A private family Interment will be at the Grandville Cemetery at a later date.
