Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Doris Knipple, known by many as simply “grandma”, went to be with
our Lord on Friday, July 17, 2015 in the early morning hours. She was known for her unconditional love and support to those that have been blessed to have her in their lives. At the time of her death she was surrounded by her
grandson, Chad, his fiance Desiree, and her great-grandson Braylon. She
will always be remembered as a spunky, caring person who had nothing but
love to give. She has opted not to have a funeral, and requested to have a
luncheon celebrating her life instead. Luncheon date is yet to be
determined and will be hosted by Chad and Desiree. Contributions and
condolences can be made to them as well, should you wish to. She was
survived by her children, Pam Dekkinga, Douglas Knipple, and James (Nancy)
Knipple; her grandsons, Chad Dekkinga and Morgan Fitzgerald; and her three
great-grandchildren, Braylon Dekkinga, Draven Fitzgerald, and Isis
Fitzgerald.

Honoring her wishes, cremation will take place. Arrangements are entrusted to Michigan Cremation & Funeral Care, Grand Rapids

    I only know of Doris through her son Doug. I believe some of our legacy lives on through our children after we are gone. Knowing Doug, this woman contributed something rare and special. May the Lord comfort all who are grieving by her loss.
