Mary Ellen Johnson, was born January 1, 1931, and passed away on Thursday, October 5, 2017. She was born in Grand Rapids to Ben and Dorcas Hoekstra. They moved to Clarksville when she was 10 years old, and her mother passed away when Mary Ellen was 11. She was brought up with tender loving care by her grandmother and her father. At age 16 her father remarried to a lovely woman, Josephine Potter, and she moved back to Grand Rapids. Mary Ellen married Bernard Johnson in 1953 and they made their home in Wyoming. They were the proud parents of Michael (Carmen) Johnson, Jeffrey (Deb) Johnson, Steven (Sharon) Johnson; seven grandchildren; one great grandchild with one on the way. They took much pride in all the school activities and especially sports. Honoring her wishes, private family services will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Paws with a Cause or the Arthritis Foundation Michigan.

So sorry to read of Mary's passing. I worked for Dr, DeYoung and Dr. Nykamp. I also was in TOPS with her.
My prayers are with all her family.
