Valeree Kay Gross, age 74, of Caledonia, passed away unexpectedly to be with her Lord on Tuesday, July 6, 2021. She was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Vernon. She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Matthew and Marsha Gross (Jack) of Alaska, David Gross and Erin Osman (Ash, Chase, Bryce) of Holland, Kim and Lauren Wright of Grand Rapids; great grandchildren, Phoenix, Felix, Evelyn May, and Remington; and other extended family and friends. Valeree was a proud mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and she was devoted to her two long-haired dachshunds. Her family was the center of her universe. She touched the lives of many through her kindness and generosity. She enjoyed watching the birds and wildlife in her backyard. She liked to explore the West Michigan area while antiquing with her husband. Shopping brought her joy and she was just as good at it online as she was in person. Funeral services will be held at 6 pm Tuesday, July 13, 2021 at Matthysse Kuiper DeGraaf Funeral Home, 616 E. Main St., Caledonia. Entombment at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. Relatives and friends may meet the family Tuesday, July 13 from 4-6 pm at the funeral home. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to any pet rescue or a local food pantry of your choice.
