She enjoyed immersing herself in family functions, beautiful music, and being an avid card player.  Funeral services will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019, 11 am at Matthysse-Kuiper-DeGraaf Funeral Home (Grandville) 4145 Chicago Dr. SW.  Interment Grandville Cemetery.  Relatives and friends may meet the family Saturday from 9:30 to 10:45 prior to the service.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Camp Concordia, 13400 Pinewood St., Gowen, MI 49326.
