KINGSLEY-DEPUIT - Announcing the passing of Helen Louise Kingsley-DePuit to the open arms of our Lord. The beloved wife of the late Ronald DePuit, Helen leaves behind a legacy of love and boundless energy.
Helen joins Ron leaving their children, Sandra Bosworth of Blacksburg, VA, Nancy Bosworth of Silver Spring, MD, and Thomas DePuit of Grand Rapids, MI/Union City, CA; their grandchildren, Michael DePuit, Susan DePuit-Jablonski, Jeff Bosworth, David Bosworth, Andrew Bosworth, Allison Bosworth-Spenard; her great grandchildren, Olivia, Alexander, Paris, and Sydney; her brothers, Pat Kingsley of Grandville, MI and Jim Kingsley of Fredricksburg, TX to remember her with love and respect for such a grand lady.
The Kingsley and DePuit families have resided in the Grandville-Jenison area since the turn of the 20th century. Helen touched so many lives during her many years as a teacher at Union High School. Helen loved golf and was instrumental in the formation of the first girls golf teams in the Grand Rapids Public Schools. That love of golf led to many happy times for Helen, Ron and so many others at Silver Lake and Sunnybrook Country Clubs. Helen was a person of many talents. She was a wonderful cook, an accomplished stained glass artisan, a gardener with a green thumb, and avid bridge player, and a mother who loved her family. We all loved her so much.
A Memorial Service will be held 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Cook Funeral Home west building, 4235 Prairie St. SW, Grandville. Visitation will be on Tuesday from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. at the funeral home.
