Helen Mae (Bosscher) Zoodsma, a loving and caring woman, who spent her life dedicated to her faith and her family, was welcomed into heaven by her beloved husband of 68 years, Richard; sister, Gerda (Al) Walcott; and those she loved at the age of 87, on Friday, September 6, 2019.  As a mother, her enduring love will continue to guide her children. Helen was born on October 18, 1931 to Peter and Reka Bosscher. Her spirit is carried on in her four children, Nancy (Ken) DeBack, Judy (Tom) Thompson, Beverly Nilles, and Randy (Ruth) Zoodsma; ten grandchildren, six great grandchildren; and brother, James (Angie) Bosscher. Helen was immersed in the Christian community which included volunteering her time. This community would be her lifelong support from an early age. Above all things, she loved her family. We will miss her each and every day and look forward to seeing her again in Heaven. A celebration of her life will take place in the Chapel at Samaritas, 2000 32nd St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI. The family will greet visitors on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 1 to 2 pm, with the funeral service beginning at 2:00 pm. We have felt the devastation Alzheimer's has had on our mother and our whole family, so in lieu of flowers, we would appreciate memorial contributions be made to the Alzheimer's Association for Disease Research alz.org/augmatch; National Processing Center, P.O. Box 96011; Washington, DC 20090-6011.
