Thelma Pearl (DeVries) DeBraber, age 90, went to be with her Lord on Sunday, March 11, 2018.  She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 51 years, Leonard, on May 16, 1998, and her son, Gordon Dale; her parents, Dave and Vera DeVries; her brothers, Loren and Marvin DeVries, and her sister Bette LaRiviere.  She is survived by her sister-in-law, Loretta DeVries; her children, Leonard David (Dianne) DeBraber and Judith Evelyn (Robert) See; her grandchildren, Andrew (Liz) DeBraber, Sandra (Mike) Huitink, Robb (Ashten) See and Tami (Jason) Brush; and her great grandchildren, Anna and Ezra DeBraber, Luke and Katie Huitink, Sckyler and Dustin See and Kaelin and Kenzie Brush. While Thelma spent most of her life in the Grand Rapids area, she worked for a number of different companies as a bookkeeper.  She was often actively engaged in a wide variety of activities from sewing, knitting and crafting to bowling, camping and playing a wide variety of parlor games – especially with cards, and periodically the phantom would call.  She was a loving mother and grandmother who enjoyed spending time with her family.  Her wit and caring nature will be greatly missed. The family would like to express their grateful appreciation to Hudsonville Reformed Church for the care and visits provided throughout the last three decades.  In addition, they would like to thank the staff and her friends at Bishop Hills Assisted Living Center in Rockford for the exceptional care she received during the last year of her life. The family will greet visitors on Saturday, March 17, from 10 - 11 am at Stroo Funeral Home, where the service will begin at 11 am. Rev. James Ikerd will officiate. Interment will be in Rosedale Memorial Park Cemetery.  Contributions in memory of Thelma may be made to Hudsonville Reformed Church.
