After moving to Grand Rapids in the early 60’s she and Don settled in on raising their six boys. She enjoyed driving for the Red Cross and travelling the states with her kids and the world with Don. She was the rock of this family and we will all miss her very much. The family would like to thank the wonderful people of Trillium Woods (Faith Hospice) for their amazing care in making our mom comfortable in her final days and weeks.
