Inge E Whittemore

I was born in Haarlem, The Netherlands and grew up in both Winnipeg MB, Canada and Grand Rapids, Mi.  I attended Calvin College for a period of time and then went to work as a banker in 1978.  I attained an associates degree in financial administration at Davenport University during my early banking years and worked for Comerica Bank for my entire 38 year career. The last 25 years I was a Vice President for the SE Grand Rapids market area.

I met Ray Whittemore (dec'd 2013) in 1976 and we were married in 1980 when I was 24 years old and I became a full time co-parent with him to his three teenage daughters.  They then married and made us happy grandparents 6 times and since Ray's passing there are now 3 great-grandchildren.

I attended the Local Pastor Licensing school in 2016 and was quickly honored with a wonderful offer of a position at East Nelson UMC.

I am happy to be here!
