John (Jack) Jousma, age 100, of Alaska, MI, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, December 17, 2017, and went to be with his Lord. Born in the village of Alaska, MI in 1917, Jack completed his education while in the 7th grade so he could work on the family farm for his father, who was in ill health. With a strong work ethic, Jack quickly became a "jack of all trades", and spent his life willingly helping his family and devoting his time to his church in any way he could. He spent most of his life in the dairy industry, driving truck as a milk hauler for many years before finishing his career as a lab tech.  He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of nearly 80 years, Dorothy; three sons, Frederick Jousma, John Jousma (friend, Sharon Pullen), Donald (Anne) Jousma; seven grandchildren; many great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren; sister, Adriann (Jim) Cramton; many nieces and nephews. According to Jack's wishes, cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held Friday, December 29, from 10 - 11 am at Alaska Community of Christ Church, where a memorial service will begin at 11 am, with Elder Robert Loesch and Elder Douglas Gregory officiating. A reception will follow at the church. Interment will take place at a later date in Alaska Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Alaska Community of Christ, 8147 68th St. SE, Alto, MI 49302.
