Leanne Joy Herrema, age 66, passed away on Monday, December 14, 2020.

Leanne was born in Ferrysburg, Michigan to Gerald and Marian Rosema. She graduated High School from West Michigan Christian and received her undergraduate degree from Calvin College. During her college years, she loved working at Camp Roger and passed that tradition to her children who also spent many summers there.

While teaching full time with three small children, Leanne returned to school to obtain her Masters in Education from Grand Valley State University. She was a beloved teacher for several years at Holland Christian, Borculo Christian, and West Ottawa schools.

Leanne enjoyed making others laugh with her quick wit and sense of humor. She loved to spend time with her children, always enjoyed a visit to the lake, and ice cream sundaes. Leanne and her family attended 14th Street CRC in Holland for many years

Leanne will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by her children Laura (Jessie) Groff, Robert (Chelsea) Herrema, and David (Liz) Herrema; 7 grandchildren; siblings Lynn DeYoung, Barb Phillips, Dan Rosema, and Dale Rosema, and several nieces and nephews.

The family is planning a memorial service in summer 2021.
