Obit MaeMae Kosters

Born on the farm near Duvall to John and Grace Spoelstra.

Mae grew up with two brothers and one sister. She participated in all the farm work and local and school activities.
Surrounded by grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and many friends in the area, she worked hard but also enjoyed swimming in the river, playing basketball in the hayloft and school and church activities.

She was a graduate of the old Duvall High School and served in the Air Watch Station during World War II.
On Oct. 27, 1944, she married Gerrit (Bob) Kosters. Together they had three sons, who also grew up on their family dairy farm that she so loved.

Mae was proceeded in death by her husband, parents, brother, sister and many cousins and friends. She is survived by her brother Ted Spoelstra of Forks, Wash., sons Ken (Eunice), Ted and Bob (Linda), her 6 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Until quite recently, Mae was extremely active gardening, canning, visiting friends, helping plan school reunions and participating in the Duvall Historical Society. On her 93rd birthday, she climbed on and rode her great granddaughter’s horse because she could!

We want to thank everybody who has shared their lives and time with Mom. She is, and will be greatly missed by many.
A celebration of her life will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on May 23, 2015, at the Swiss Hall on Tualco Rd., Monroe, Wash.
