Educational Fund Established for VanderWaal Children
An opportunity to contribute to an educational fund for Sue's children has been set up by friends and colleagues at


Sue VanderWaal, wife of Curt VanderWaal, research professor of social work and chair of the Department of Social Work, died Sabbath, Feb. 22, after a hard-fought, two-year battle with cancer. Sue and Curt have three children, Michael and Ben, who are students at Andrews University, and Emma, who attends Village Adventist Elementary School.

Condolences and memories may be posted in the comments below. Please remember the family and friends of Sue in your prayers as they mourn her loss.

Susan Denise Copin VanderWaal was born on October 27, 1964, as the youngest child of John and Edith Copin of Hickory Corners, Mich. She joined older siblings John, Jeanne and Teresa.

Sue grew up in the Battle Creek area and attended elementary and secondary school at Battle Creek Academy, from which she graduated in 1982. She continued her education at Andrews University and Lake Michigan College, receiving an associate degree from LMC and achieving her RN in 1985. She subsequently completed her BS from the University of Michigan and her Master of Science in Nursing with a clinical specialization from Andrews University.

In elementary school, one grade ahead of her, Sue met Curtis Jon VanderWaal. They completed school, worked at summer camp together, and married in Urbandale, Mich., on June 16, 1985. Sue was happy to expand her family to include Curt’s parents, Pat and Neal, and his siblings, and they became very dear to each other.

Together Sue and Curt continued their education and started their professional careers. Sue first embraced her vocation of caring for babies at the University of Michigan hospital, in the continuing care nursery. When the VanderWaals moved to the Berrien Springs, Mich., area in 1990, Sue began work at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Memorial Hospital of South Bend, Ind., where she pursued her career for the next 24 years. She began as a staff nurse, worked as a primary nurse, and later managed the unit’s computer systems and services. She also served as assistant unit director. In the course of her career, she was responsible for hands-on care of her tiny patients, training of new staff, transporting babies to and from the hospital, parent education and helping to administer the unit. Her colleagues universally remember her and speak of her as compassionate, patient, intelligent—a versatile, gifted nurse. Sue was especially empathetic to the stress of the new parents and bonded with many of them, keeping in touch through the unit’s annual family reunions at which she was rewarded by seeing her “babies” growing up happy and robust.

Sue and Curt welcomed their own babies into their family, beginning with Michael Jon in 1991, then Benjamin Edward in 1995, and Emma Denise in 2001. A devoted mother, Sue helped out at school, cheered them on at many games, supported their participation in the Berrien County Youth Fair, nurtured their many interests, helped take care of their animals, loved and “adopted” their friends, and loved each child unconditionally. Sue and Curt loved to travel with their family throughout the United States and also to Europe.

In early 2012, Sue and her family learned that she had breast cancer. She fought valiantly through surgeries, radiation and chemo, and enjoyed every minute with family and friends. But the disease progressed to her brain and spine, and Sue lost her battle on Saturday, February 22, 2014. She was tenderly nursed through the final days of her illness by her family and especially her dear friends Connie Guerra and DeEtta Chen.

Sue was preceded in death by her mother, Edith Copin, in 1981. She is survived by her husband Curt, her children, Michael, Benjamin and Emma (all at home), her father John Copin and her stepmother Della, her brother John (Ruth Ann) Copin, her sisters Jeanne (Dale) Dent and Teresa (Mark) Cope, her father and mother-in-law Neal and Patricia VanderWaal and their children, Greg (Kimberly), Gail (James) Micheff, Robert (Jennifer), and Chris (Macie), many nieces and nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews, and a myriad of friends.

Donations in Sue’s memory may be made to the Newborn Intensive Care Unit of Memorial Hospital of South Bend, c/o Diane Freel, 615 N Michigan Street, South Bend, IN 46601.

Alumna Publishes Book

Tracy Weakly, a McMinnville, Oregon, resident, recently published a book titled The Mission Through God's Eyes. The book presents the life and death of Christ in a narrative format from the perspective of the interaction of each member of the Trinity—God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

It was Weakly’s study of Jesus’ life that prompted her to write this book. As she dug deeper into the Bible and other commentaries, she began to imagine how a triune God experienced the events. Based on her research of Jesus’ life and the culture of that time, Weakly weaves in insights about the customs of Jesus’ day as she tells the familiar Bible stories as first-person accounts from each member of the Trinity.

The Role of Doubt
In Religious Identity Development
and Psychological Maturity

Presented by

Ron Coffen, Ph.D.
Professor of Counseling and School Psychology
Director, Andrews Community Counseling Center
Andrews University


Tiago Baltazar, EdS
School Psychologist
Berrien Regional Education Service Agency.

Saturday afternoon at 3:30 pm

Chan Shun Hall
Andrews University


Dr. Coffen has provided a preview of their presentation:

Religious educators at the elementary, high school, and college levels are concerned with the religious identity development of their students. We will explore a theory of general identity development (based on Erik Erikson’s theory of psychosocial development) and illustrate similar processes for religious identity development. We will analyze doubt as an essential factor for successful religious identity achievement. We hope to end with a discussion of potential educational interventions to create school environments that promote, rather than inhibit, religious identity development.

Alum Serves Local Community

When Tonya Snyder graduated from Andrews University in June 2000, she headed right to the Berrien Regional Education Service Agency without missing a proverbial beat.
However, the path to a public relations degree took time to emerge, as Snyder said.
"If my current self were to visit my college or high school self, I would probably not believe the career path I find myself in," Snyder said, laughing. "I pictured myself more along the journalism side, or (being) the author of a book."
These days, Snyder wears two hats.

Berrien Springs Camera Club March Meeting

 The Berrien Springs Camera Club will meet on Wednesday, Mar. 5, at 7 p.m. in the Berrien Springs Community Library at Cass and Union.

Cheryl Thomas, president, states that for the March meeting members are invited to submit up to 5 digital images for projection and critique. They may wish to turn in pictures rejected by judges during recent competitions.

The club’s monthly meetings alternate between competitions, with three judges at each one, and other kinds of presentations. Members always notice how very subjective judging can be: Sometimes an image that is “out” one month may be resubmitted in another competition, with different judges, and receive “honor” status.

The March meeting will feature some of these rejected images and let the whole group try to decide why they were not accepted and how they could be improved. Submission guidelines can be found on the club’s Web site

The public is welcome. To submit pictures, one must be a member. Refreshments are served at each meeting.

"I Had No Idea..." Raising Awareness about Eating Disorders and Body Image

"I Had No Idea..." Raising Awareness about Eating Disorders and Body Image

To promote a healthy body image and increase awareness about eating disorders on our community, the Andrews University Counseling & Testing Center will be sponsoring an interactive event during the National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (February 23 – March 1, 2014).

Faculty, staff, and students are welcomed to participate during our Awareness Event on Wednesday, February 26th, 2014, from 11:30am-2pm. All are invited to post messages of acceptance and encouragement, learn about the impact of eating disorders on mental health, discuss the role of culture and media in distorting body image, and discover ways to help a friend or family member who might be struggling with these concerns.

Also, we will be offering confidential screenings. The eating disorder screening consists of a brief, anonymous questionnaire designed to provide students with insight into symptoms they might be experiencing and receive helpful treatment and referral information, if necessary. In addition to in-person screenings during the Awareness Event, students can access an anonymous screening online at

Excessive preoccupation about weight and diets can lead to disordered eating habits. These unhealthy habits can be difficult to recognize, but over time, can develop into an eating disorder.  The majority of students struggling with eating disorders are not receiving treatment. The screenings available help direct students to the appropriate care they need.

Eating disorders are more prevalent on college campuses than many people realize. In fact, 95 percent of those who have eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25. Twenty-five percent of college-aged women report engaging in bingeing and purging as a weight-management technique. And college males are not immune. Increasingly, men are feeling the pressure for physical perfection which can lead to excessive exercise and fixation on low body fat percentage.

Come, participate, and help in promoting a healthy body image and greater awareness of eating disorders in our community. For more information, contact Dr. Luis G. Cruz-Ortega at or call the CTC at 269-471-3470.

Student Gardens Partner with Health Department

If the people can't get to the farm, bring the farm to the people.

That's the philosophy behind a new partnership between the Berrien County Health Department and Andrews University's student garden to operate a mobile farmers' market this year.

Garth Woodruff, an Andrews horticulture instructor who oversees the garden project, said it is unbelievable that there are people in Berrien County who can't get freshly grown produce.

"It is shocking to me that in this county, where 90 percent of the land is used for agriculture, where you can't find better vegetable growing land in the region, and probably the United States, you would have food deserts in areas such as Berrien Springs, Benton Harbor and Niles," Woodruff said.

Revive Vespers

 Join us for another Friday Vespers this week for a powerful message on Righteousness by Faith presented by Akeem James.  In his message entitled, “We Would Serve the Egyptians,” Akeem, a student at the seminary, will be looking at the parallels between the deliverance of the Israelites out of Egypt and our spiritual journey as Christians.  We know that we are spiritual Israel, but what if the “spiritual Egypt” is still very real in our lives? Why are we wondering in this wilderness so long? Why do we want to go back to Egypt of sin? The answer lays in Jesus our Passover. Join us and be blessed as we dig into God’s word on this all important question!

Place: Biology Amphitheater

Time: Friday, February 14 @ 7:30pm.

Adventist Engaged Encounter

Adventist Engaged Encounter (AEE), an enrichment weekend for engaged and recently married couples, is being held on the Andrews University campus. The weekend experience offers couples the insights, tools, and confidence to enrich their relationship and strengthen their love and commitment for one another.

Tuition Freedom Day

Did you know? Because Andrews is a non-profit institution, students are charged less for their education than it costs to provide. In fact students at Andrews are only charged 65% of the actual cost. Donations from alumni, parents, friends, faculty and staff make up the difference.

February 11 marks 65% of the school year that has elapsed, and which has been paid for by students. It's called Tuition Freedom Day because from here on out, gifts from donors are covering the cost of an Andrews education.

Come join us in celebrating our amazing donors who help make an Andrews education possible for so many students. We'll be set up in the student center on February 11 from noon to 2:00 pm, and students are welcome to stop by, sign thank you notes for donors, and grab some treats.

Plus, be sure to attend University Forum at 11:30 am in the HPAC for a special video presentation from our students about Tuition Freedom Day!

The Sacred Theater of Knowing Meeting

"The Sacred Theater of Knowing:
The Epistemologies of Hamlet on Film.”

Presented by

Dr. L Monique Pittman
Director of Honors
Professor of English
Andrews University

Sabbath Afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
February 22, 2014

Chan Shun Hall
Andrews University

Dr. Pittman has provided the following autobiographical information :
A former student of the Andrews University English Department, I began teaching here in 1999. I returned because the English Department had provided me with a stimulating and nurturing place in which to develop a mature intellectual and spiritual life. I also loved and admired the comradery characteristic of the faculty relationships with each other and with their students.
After completing my B.A. in English with a minor in music at Andrews (1991), I earned an M.A. from The College of William and Mary (1993), and finished a Ph.D. in Renaissance literature at Purdue University (2000).  The literature and history of the English Renaissance has fascinated me since I was a child (I even had a postcard-sized portrait of Elizabeth I in my high school locker); as a scholar and teacher, I find the Renaissance's nuanced and complex treatment of the human condition endlessly satisfying.
My husband Paul analyzes numbers instead of literature as a CPA at a public accounting firm. We enjoy entertaining, cooking, baking, kitchen gardening, and working home improvement magic.

Regarding the topic of her Forum presentation, she says,
I’m considering the epistemological crisis of the sixteenth century as manifested in the play and in two twentieth-century film versions.

Revive Vespers

This week, we will still be having vespers at our usual place and time entitled, "For the Love of Christ Constraineth Us" with Melissa Bresnahan.

So many of us struggle with sin and some of us seem to face defeat day in and day out or continue to struggle with our "cross." Still others strive to keep God's law and find it to be a cumbersome load. How can you experience God's power in our lives to overcome sin?  How can we find lasting peace and joy that comes from daily victories in our life?  How can we experience the satisfaction that God promises to give us when we live according to His commandments? How can we help friends or family who are wrestling and struggling with their own sins or find the Christian life to be dissatisfying? 

Come and be blessed at vespers this Friday as we delve into this all-important topic!
