Barbara Harms (nee Baukje Viersen), age 95, died on Friday, April 26, 2019 at Sunset Manor in Jenison. She was the daughter of the late Jacob and Grace (nee Grietje Dijkstra) Vierzen and was the widow of Hendrik K. Harms. The Harms family immigrated from the Netherlands in late 1958 and lived in Grand Rapids, then Cutlerville, and for the last 10 years she lived in Jenison. She struggled with progressive memory loss for years but remained happy and cheerful until her ability to remember and speak were gone. She is survived by her sons, Herman and Sylvia Harms, and Dick and Joan Harms; her grandchildren, Angelique and Matt Walter (Jared and Jenna); Ingrid and Scott Johnson (Mikayla and Annika); Rick and Lisa Harms (Russell and Storm Harms, Caleb, Steven, and Naomi), Chris Harms and Kate Harms. In addition to her parents and husband, Barbara was preceded in death by her son, Jacob; daughter, Grace; great grandson, Alex; all her siblings, Tina, Janke, Ike, and Dirk; and her nieces, Jackie and Jenny. The family thanks the many dedicated staff members of Sunset Manor who provided her care and suggests memorial gifts be sent there. The memorial service will be held at 11 am Friday, May 3, at Cutlerville East Christian Reformed Church, 501 68th St. SE, with visitation one hour prior to the service at the church. Rev. Ed Visser will officiate. Interment will be in Blain Cemetery.
