Henry Diedering, age 95, of Kentwood, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, September 24, 2021. He was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Tena in 2016; his daughter, Teresa in 2002; brothers, Herman Diedering, John and Ruth Diedering; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Maynard and Ann Hofstra, Wilbur Hofstra, Shirley Hofstra, Chris VanLonkhuyzen. Henry will be deeply missed by his daughter and son-in-law, Cathy and Henry Atsma; his grandchildren, Eric Henry (Brooke) Atsma, Emily (Mitchell) Nol; his great grandson, Charles Henry Atsma; sisters (in the Netherlands) Tiny (Cees) Baan and Hannie (Bas) Van Beuzekom; sisters-in-law and brother-in-law, Betty Diedering, Joan Hofstra, Harry Hofstra, Lucy VanLonkhuyzen; and many nieces and nephews. Special thanks to nephew, Harold and Marcia Diedering for faithfully bringing him to church and nephew, Dean and Susan Diedering for weekly shopping and lunch. Henry served in the Dutch Marines in Indonesia between 1945 and 1948. He immigrated from the Netherlands with his then fiancé, Tena in 1950. They wed in 1951. Henry was a humble man who loved and served his family. He enjoyed travelling and photography and shared this by creating travelogues that he presented to many church and senior citizen groups. Henry was the founder of Harvest Health Foods where he worked until the age of 92. He leaves a great legacy of hard work, dedication, and love for others that his family is honored to carry on. He had a passion for helping others and had a true servant’s heart. Henry was a long-time, dedicated member of Kelloggsville CRC, where he served as deacon and elder for many years. The family wishes to thank the Holland Home staff for their excellent care of Henry. The family will greet visitors on Monday, September 27 from 5-8 pm at Kelloggsville Christian Reformed Church, 610 52nd St. SE and one hour prior to the celebration of life service (10 – 10:45 am) which will be held on Tuesday, September 28, at 11 am with Rev.
