Jane Grace was born on November 5, 1937, at Rock Rapids, the daughter of Henry and Johanna Cornelia (Vermeulen) Rens. She was raised on a farm northwest of Lester and completed the twelfth grade at the Larchwood high school. She attended Northwestern Junior College in Orange City for two years and received her teaching certificate in 1957.

On July 23, 1958, she married Howard William Haverdink in Lester. They made their home on his family’s farm south of Orange City. She briefly taught school before the couple started their own family. She enjoyed working on the farm, helping with the pigs, milking cows, and anything else that needed to be done. She also worked as a librarian at the Orange City Public Library for more than 34 years. In 1994, they moved to a home in Orange City. Howard passed away on April 25, 1999, in Sioux City, after more than forty years of marriage. In January of 2018, Jane became a resident of the Landsmeer Ridge Retirement Community.

Mrs. Haverdink was baptized and made her profession of faith at the Bethel Reformed Church in Lester. She later became a member of the First Reformed Church in Orange City where she participated in the Priscilla and Mary-Martha Circles, women’s work groups, the Tulip Festival church stand, and had served as president of the Reformed Church Women’s Ministries. She was also a regular volunteer at the Prairie Ridge Care Center in Orange City.

Jane was an avid reader and never stopped learning new things.
