Reed II at Northwestern Bible College where they both committed to become over-seas missionaries. The Lord had other plans for them.

Charles Reed, daughter Charlene Trerice, son Charles III, sister, Helene Kanengeiter and brother, Kenneth Mulder, sister-in-law Jeanette Mulder, brothers-in-law Alvin DeBerg, John Harms, and Donald Linder.
Our mother reflected the strength of her faith in God in the way she handled life’s challenges. She was a counselor, homemaker and an ever-present encouragement to her husband’s ministry. We feel we and those she came in contact with have had their lives enriched by knowing her. Funeral services for Mrs. Reed will be held at Calvary Baptist Church, 3001 W.
