Service Information

Reta M. (De Mute) Van Houten 
Service: Held at a later date


 Reta Van Houten, age 83, of Kentwood, passed away on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 due to Parkinson's Disease and Dementia. She was preceded in death by her husband, Herman; and son, Daniel; her brother, Rodney; and sister, Deanna. Reta is survived by her son, Mark (Connie) Van Houten; and daughter, JoAnn (Jim) Rothley; brothers, Ronald and Richard (Marcia) DeMute; grandchildren and great grandchildren, Jesse (Melissa), Isabella and Colette Sefton, Aaron (Sarah) Shelby and Easton Van Houten, Amanda (Audra) Van Houten, Zack Van Houten, Lucas (Tiffany) Van Houten, Andy and Hunter Van Houten, Jennifer Martin, Nichole Knight and Gabriella Soenjeon. Reta treasured her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren above and beyond. They will always remember countless trips to 7-11, weekly goody bags, and breakfast at Bob Evans. Reta wished to continue helping others in her death by donating her body to medical study as her son, Dan, did with his brain tumor, but due to coronavirus, donations are not being taken at this time. She has been cremated. Since funerals and memorials are also suspended at this time, we have sent her lovingly and gently into that good night and God's eternal love. A memorial will be announced at a later date. Any cards and letters of condolences may be sent to JoAnn Rothley, 505 Harp St. SE, Kentwood, MI 49548.

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and in the hour of our death. Amen.
