GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (May 24, 2014) – More than 200 people came to St. Mary’s Catholic Church on Saturday to say goodbye to Berta Yolanda Reyes.

Reyes’ body was found May 16 at a construction site.  Police are calling her death a homicide.

She was reported missing April 24 after failing to report for work at a greenhouse in Walker.

There were a lot of tears shed and  hugs shared – as well as well-wishes from those who attended the memorial service, supporting Reyes’ family and friends.

Reyes, 40, leaves behind four children.​

When the memorial service ended, a line was formed at the back of the church towards the front alter, where donations were deposited into a box with a photo of Reyes’.

Police are still looking for information regarding Reyes’ death and haven’t made any arrests.  If you have any information, call Walker Police at 616-791-6800.
