Doris E. Johnson, age 89, of Grand Rapids, was called to her heavenly home on Wednesday, May 1, 2019. Doris was faithfully devoted to the Lord and her church, Grand Rapids First. She had a servant's heart and loved volunteering in the kitchen for events. She worked in the food industry over 45 years, first as a waitress, then as a deli manager making pizzas. Doris was known for blessing others with her chocolate dipped confections. She was fiercely devoted to her family whom she passionately loved. She was selfless, resilient, hardworking, purpose driven with a smile and had a heart of gold. She was a true reflection of Jesus Christ. Doris was a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother and will be deeply missed by her children, Gerry (Darrell) Gray, Arlene Roe, Rhonda (John) Pike, Michelle (Ron) Mick; 12 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren; seven great-great grandchildren; brother, Keith (Polly) Stinson; sister, Luella Merritt; sister-in-law, Evelyn Stinson; many nieces and nephews; and several important friends in her life who were family to her. She was preceded in death by her son-in-law, LeRoy Roe; a great-great grandson, Trevor M. Tyler; brothers and sisters, William Stinson, Gwendolyn Holiday, Hazel Midlan, Edward Stinson, Lewis Stinson, George Stinson, Guy Stinson, Shirley Davenport, and Lila Stinson. The family wishes to thank the Russo Family Restaurants, Tandem 365, and Hospice of Holland for the loving care provided to their mother. The family will greet visitors on Tuesday, May 14, from 10 - 11 am at Grand Rapids First, 2100 44th St. SW, followed by the memorial service at 11 am. Pastor Larry French will officiate. In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Doris may be made to Hospice of Holland.

My condolences to Doris's family love ones and friends Doris was a strong Christian woman who loves Jesus with all her heart. She was quick witted with a great sense of humor she and I would joke around with some bloopers. I will miss her but I don't sorrow as those without hope as I'll see her again. Doris, Rest in the arms of Jesus.

I would like to extend my condolences to Doris’s family. Doris was a God fearing woman and friend with a lot of spice. I served with Doris at Grand Rapids first where she was always dedicated to serving Jesus, with her love for families. Doris, was a giving person she brought me waters from home every time we served, because she was a generous and loving person. Doris, made serving fun too, with all her laughter and young talk. If you knew Doris you will know what I mean. Doris you will be greatly missed. I know you are in Jesus presence. Love you Doris

We will miss you Doris, but I suspect we will always remember you fondly. Thank you for being a part of our lives for 15 years.

Tom and Nancy
