    • SOURCE: HILLSBORO OREGON ARGUS OBITUARY

      Mrs. Margaret (Joosten) Van Dyke died Tuesday at a local hospital after a four day illness. She was well known for her many church activities, but particularly as the founder of the Verboort Annual Sausage and Kraut Dinner, which last November celebrated its 25th year. Mrs. Van Dyke was born April 8, 1880 at Little Chute, Wisconsin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Joosten. She came to Verboort at the age of sixteen, and on May 7, 1901 she was married to Walter Van Dyke, who preceded her in death in October 8, 1940. Mrs. Van Dyke was a member of St. Anne's Altar Society and was active in work of Catholic Overseas Relief. She went to Rome in 1950 and received the papal blessing.

      Mrs. Van Dyke was a mother of fourteen children, all of whom survived. They are, eight sons, Joseph of Gaston; George, Theodore, Clarence and Ralph all of Forest Grove; Albert M. Van Dyke of Walla Walla, Wash.; Raymond of Hillsboro; and Howard of Cornelius; six daughters, Mrs. Henry (Minnie) Holzmeyer and Mrs. George (Cecelia) Duyck of Forest Grove; Mrs. Edward (Christine) Sahlfeld, Mrs. Clarence (Florence) Waibel and Mrs. Edward (Leona) Puncochar all of Hillsboro; and Mrs. Aloysius (Loretta) Vanderzanden of Banks; 82 grandchildren and 30 great grandchildren.

      Pricketts Mortuary Forest Grove has charge of Arrangements. Casket bearers will be six grandsons; Alvin, Wayne, Harvey and Jack Van Dyke, Richard Holzmeyer and Lloyd Duyck.


      Another Van Dyke legacy: Margaret Van Dyke, known to most as Maggie, suggested a sausage and sauerkraut dinner for the annual parish meal in 1938. Regarding that first parish dinner, the Verboort Centennial said, “the community served 150 dinners, 198 pounds of sausage and 10 gallons of kraut, and it was not enough.”
