Condolences to Vicki Janowiak, GRCC’s executive director for operational planning, on the loss of her mother.
Janice “Jan” Vollink, 84, of Holland passed away on Saturday, Dec. 18.
Mrs. Vollink was proud to have been a charter member of Haven Christian Reformed Church and a current member of First Reformed Church of Zeeland. She married Bob Vollink in 1959 and after being a stay-at-home mom for nearly 15 years, Jan re-entered the workforce. She enjoyed working at the Dutchess shop in Zeeland, and then spent 20-plus years as a successful travel agent, allowing her to travel the world with her husband and extended family.
Mrs. Vollink always said “work is what I do best,” and when the travel agency closed she worked for another 20 years at Michigan West Shore nursery and became part of a new work family there. A funeral honoring Mrs. Vollink is planned for 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 21, at Yntema Funeral Home, 251 S. State St., Zeeland. Visitation is planned for 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., also at the funeral home. Memorial Contributions may be given to Zeeland Christian Schools.
Very sorry for the loss of your Mother.
So sorry to learn of your Mother’s death. She certainly was a talented woman. The old saying ”the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” rings true here! Thinking of you and your family.
