Allegonda “Connie” (Wouters) Kazemier, age 75 of Lowell, MI, passed away Saturday, February 18, 2017. She is survived by her three daughters, Oranda (Jay) May, Cathy Kazemier, and Sheila (Douglas) Kelly; 10 grandchildren, Tara May Tesimu, Tabitha (Dan) Lyon, Justin Kazemier, Tad Rodgers, Madison Rodgers, Fiona Kelly, Gavin Kelly, Gwynneth Kelly, Jessica and Jocelyn Johnson; and seven great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Sjouke “George” Kazemier; her son, Theodorus “Ted” Kazemier; and twin granddaughters Alisabeth and Merideth Kelly.She was blessed with numerous brothers and sisters, and a loving family in the Netherlands, as well as many lifelong friends all over America and Canada. Connie emigrated from the Netherlands to America to start a new life with her husband and son in 1963. They lived in Grand Rapids for several years before moving to Lowell and joining St. Patrick’s Parish, which became the basis for their long friendships in the Parnell area.  Connie lived an active and full life. She played Bunco at the church, weekly volleyball games, and exercised at the YWCA. She was an avid knitter, joining a knitting group in Lowell and creating beautiful sweaters and hats for her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many families in need. Connie loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, including jumping on the trampoline and tending to her flowers in the yard. She enjoyed traveling to Texas every winter to be with her friends. Connie and George loved dancing together their entire lives and passed on their love of music and dancing to their children and entire family. She will be greatly missed by the local community, too many close friends to name, and her family the world over. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
