Sandra L Tuinstra
June 30, 1950 – September 19, 2020
Sandra Lee Tuinstra, 70, of Lake Odessa, Michigan, left this world to be with her Heavenly Father on Saturday, September 19, 2020 after battling so courageously from a heart attack she suffered almost two weeks before.
Sandy loved traveling with the love of her life, her husband Bob of 51 years, whom she adored. Their motorhome provided them the opportunity to travel all over the country together, but it also allowed them to host the beloved Holland State Park camping week with their grandchildren and children. They also enjoyed many winters in Hawaii and Florida or wherever life took them.
Sandy was wonderfully loyal to those she held dear. She loved unconditionally, laughed so freely, and was compassionate beyond measure. What a blessing it was to receive one of her hugs, which she gave so generously. Her love of the Lord was in the forefront of everything she said and did. She found joy in all things; she admired God’s handiwork in the sunsets she so often would photograph, faithfully watching her grandkids participate in various activities, or just enjoyed sitting with her husband Bob watching TV on any given evening. But what she loved most was the sound of her children, grandchildren, great-granddaughter, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and friends filling the rooms of their house. Everyone was welcome, their door was always open.
Bob and Sandy’s marriage and life together is a true testament of a Christ-centered commitment to each other and to their family. God blessed them with 51 years of marriage and a family that treasures them and will miss her beyond what words can say. Sandy is survived by her husband Bob, son Rick Tuinstra, daughters Jodi Coburn(Clyde), Jennifer Erdody(Jarrod), and Julie Paarlberg(Adam), grandchildren Holly, Taylor, and Paige VanStee, Jacob, Jadyn, and Jordyn Erdody, David, Caleb, Peter, and Michael Paarlberg, and her precious great-granddaughter Olivia, sisters Kathy Underwood(Dennis), Sharon Long, brother Gary DeVoll, sisters-in-law Mary Rhew(Dick), Pat Potter(Gregg Rairigh), Carol Cecil(Tom), brothers-in-law Dick Tuinstra(JoAnn), Don Tuinstra(Tammy), Ed Tuinstra(Becky) and MANY nieces and nephews, their spouses and children, and friends. Sandy was preceded in death by her parents, Ronald and Eila (Thayer) DeVoll, her brothers Ronald DeVoll, and William DeVoll.
A private visitation and Celebration of Life is being held at Faith Bible Baptist Church located at 7455 Woodland Rd, Lake Odessa, Michigan 48849.
