Barbara Jean Kuiphof, age 81, born May 3, 1939, went to be with Jesus on Wednesday, December 9, 2020.  She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Mike (Sue) Kuiphof, Laurie (Randy) DeMann, Steve Kuiphof, and Jeff (Gwyn) Kuiphof; nine grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; her sister, Shirley Kooiker; sister and brother-in-law, Nancy and Jim Engen; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald; her sister and brother-in-law, Ken and Mick Kleinheksel; brother-in-law, John Kooiker; parents, John and Ethel VanLaar; mother and father-in-law, Peter and Anna Kuiphof.  Barb lived most of her life in Dutton. She loved the Lord first, then her family. She had a passion for refugees, and had friends from around the world, many of them adopting her as mom and grandma as well. We know that when she entered Heaven, she heard those words she hopes we all hear: “well done child, well done”. The family will greet visitors on Sunday, December 13, 2020, from 2 to 5 pm at Stroo Funeral Home, 1095 68th Street, SE. A private family committal service will be held on Friday, December 18, 2020 in Dutton Cemetery. Contributions in memory of Barb may be made to Kentwood Community Church Missions Fund.

Barb's love for the Lord was very evident in how she lived her life--she will be very missed. May you find comfort in loving memories.
