Born in Grand Rapids in 1953, Char attended Grand Rapids Central Christian High School. She enjoyed singing, gardening, and bicycling-holding a record (1990) for the 24-hour challenge.

She will be greatly missed by her former husband, David Terpsma; her brothers, Don and Shirley Oppenhuizen, Roger and Lois Oppenhuizen; her sisters, Marie and Tom Rogers, Karen and Sonny Garber; former sister-in-law, Sally Terpsma; former brother-in-law, Dan Terpsma, former mother-in-law, Mary Terpsma, along with many cousins, nieces and nephews. Char was predeceased by her parents, Engelus (Oppie) and Gladys Oppenhuizen, former father-in-law, Peter Terpsma, and former brother-in-law, Peter Terpsma. A Celebration of Char’s life will be held 1 pm on Saturday, September 19, at Rosedale Memorial Park (50 Lake Michigan Drive, Grand Rapids) with Rev.
