Grosse Pointe Park resident Arnolda “Nolly” Edith Vermet, 90, passed away Thursday, December 5, 2019.

She was born December 23, 1928, in The Hague, Netherlands, to Bertus Bats and Tona Hofland Bats and graduated high school in Voorburg, Netherlands. She attended an extensive secretarial school program and was proficient in several languages, including Dutch, French, German, Latin and English. Nolly also was proud she was proficient in shorthand in multiple languages. She worked as an executive secretary in the Microbiology Department at Delft University in the Netherlands.

Immigrating in 1953 to the United States, Nolly and her husband Wim lived near their sponsors in Philadelphia. They traveled to many states for Wim’s work as an aeronautical engineer. They also lived in Kansas City, Kan., Harper Woods, Mich., Hartford, Conn., and Brownsburg, Ind., before settling in Grosse Pointe Park where Wim began a new career in Diesel Engines with General Motors Detroit Diesel Allison. Nolly worked at Jacobson’s in The Village and then Grosse Pointe Public Library Central Branch for more than 15 years.

Nolly loved gardening, bike riding, being out in nature, feeding birds and squirrels, observing freighters and watching geese and swans on Lake St. Clair. She loved all animals, especially dogs, cats and birds. She carried dog biscuits in her car to pass out to friendly pooches. Nolly loved to sit at Windmill Pointe Park and watch the sailboat races.

Additionally, Nolly was an avid sewer and knitter and crocheted, as well as did crewel embroidery. She was a talented crafter and created lovely floral arrangements as well.

Nolly was a member of the Detroit Garden Club and Deeplands Garden Club. She was an active volunteer for many years at Grosse Pointe Memorial Church, sewing and knitting with Presbyterian women to raise money for various charities.

Nolly loved spending time with her family and adored her grandchildren and proud of their accomplishments.

Nolly is survived by her sons, Dominick A. Vermet (Lori) and Edward J. Vermet (Christina) and grandchildren, Corbin Vermet and Mitchell, Jennifer and Stephanie Vermet.

She was predeceased by her husband, Willem K. Vermet; sister, Diny Synja and brother, Edward Bats.

Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to Chas. Verheyden Funeral Home.

A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, December 21, at Grosse Pointe Memorial Church, 16 Lakeshore, Grosse Pointe Farms.

Nolly’s family extends their deepest appreciation to her private caregivers, as well as the Hospice of Michigan team.
