She had 7 brothers and 3 sisters that preceded her in death. Her baptism was on June 21, 1959. She will be remembered for her love of God and love of her family, always caring and thinking of others. She always helped with church activities and church camp until her eyes would not let her anymore. Funeral services will be held Friday at 11:00am at Stegenga Funeral Chapel, 3131 S. Division Ave, Wyoming, Michigan. Officiated by Nephew Kenneth Bush. Burial will be at Chapel Hill Cemetery. Relatives and friends may meet the family on Thursday from 6-8pm.

My condolences to all the family members and friends. Praying for peace and strength during this time. “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”

Grandma you sure will be missed: She was such a warm welcoming person but never travel to far cause she would always have a comment coming, some was a learning thing, some was funny, most was just her dealing with what was going on at the time. I will always cherish the memories and the time I did spend with her and grandpa in my younger years.
