Service Information

Barbara Jean DeVries
Service: Private family service
Cemetery: West Cemetery, Paris, MI
Memorials: Make a Wish Foundation OR The Child Discovery Center

Barbara Jean (Freeland) DeVries, age 77, of Kentwood, passed away on Monday, August 31, 2020. She was born to the late Wessley and Doris Freeland on October 3, 1942, and preceded in death by her brother, Michael and daughter, Mindy. Barbara was born and raised in Big Rapids, Michigan. Upon graduation from Big Rapids High School in 1960, she began working in the nursing field until she began her most cherished role as a mother. She spent later years working in the service industry, as a courier, and as a caretaker for loved ones. Despite her busy schedule, spending quality time with family was always Barbara’s joy. Whether it was playing cards, baking with grandchildren, canning with her girls, or just having small talk over a cup of coffee, Barbara cherished the moments with loved ones. Road trips and cruises with family were among her most treasured memories. Barbara is survived by her husband, Robert; her children, Anne (John) McCurdy, Michelle (Brent) Pierce, Heather (Sharri) Shaw-Colorado; step-children, Kenneth (Vicki) DeVries, Calvin (Andrea) DeVries, Niki (Jack) Thompson; many grandchildren and great grandchildren; and sister-in-law, Kay Freeland. As Barbara requested, cremation has taken place, and interment took place on the Freeland family plot at West Cemetery, Paris, MI. Memorial contributions in memory of Barbara may be made to Make a Wish Foundation or The Child Discovery Center.
