Germaine was a hard worker with a strong personality, coming from her European-Belgium roots. She worked side by side with her husband on the farm.

She and her husband Andre loved to entertain both family and dear friends. With her strong forward attitude and solid catholic values, she made many friends.
Her daughter Lauraine, granddaughter Tamra and great-granddaughter Mekenna cared for her during the past 8½ years. Lauraine and Tamra were by her side when she passed peacefully. Germaine is preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Andre De Craemer in 1992 and her beloved son Robert De Craemer in 2012.
