Julene Ruth (Yonker) Eiten, age 89, of Kentwood, went to be with her Savior on Wednesday, July 31, 2019.  She was born December 18, 1929, in Hospers, IA, to Peter and Hendrika (Waanders) Yonker. She moved with her family to Grand Rapids, MI, in 1943, graduating from Grand Rapids Christian High School in 1947 and receiving her LPN degree in 1954. On October 8, 1954, Julene married Harold Eiten. After military service in Texas, the couple returned to MI to begin their family. The family moved to Pella, Iowa, in 1969. In 1973 they settled in Steamboat Rock, Iowa, where they would live for the next 27 years. Julene worked as a clinical nurse until her retirement in 1994. The couple returned to Cutlerville, MI, in 2000. Julene was generous, had a caring heart and a good sense of humor. She was known to be a competitive game player and a crazy-good Scrabble opponent. She loved to quilt, stitch, sew and bake. She put love into everything she made whether it was food, cross-stitch or quilts. Her quiet, loving manner, Christian faith and values were shining emblems to her children, grandchildren, family and friends. She is survived by her husband, Harold, of Kentwood, MI; five children, Daniel (Mary) of Denison, Iowa; Keith (Pam) of Wheaton, Illinois; Leisha of Omaha, Nebraska; Beth (Greg) Miller of Grand Rapids, MI; and Jonathan (Julia) of Gorham, Maine; 12 grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; brother, John; and many beloved nephews and nieces. Julene is preceded in death by her son, Gary; father and mother; brothers, Allen and Carroll; and sister, Jean VanderHoek. Memorials may be directed to Timothy Christian School – Wellsburg, IA or the Mercy Quilting Group at Cutlerville East CRC of Grand Rapids, MI. The family will greet visitors on Monday, August 5, from 5 - 8  pm at Stroo Funeral Home, and Tuesday, August 6 from 10 - 10:45 am at Cutlerville East Christian Reformed Church, 501 68th St. SE, where the funeral service will begin at 11 am. Rev. Ed Visser will officiate. Interment will be in Wellsburg, IA on Saturday, August 10, at 1:30 pm.

Beloved Julene who exemplified what a godly woman looks and acts like will be greatly missed. Not only by John and I but by anyone who knew her and came to love her character and joyous personality.

Sad we will no longer be able to give her hugs and kisses but so happy she is with her beloved Lord Jesus Christ where we expect to join her before too many more years.
