Helen (King) Scheuerman, 86, of Holland, formerly of Adrian, died January 6, 2016 after a 10 year battle with Alzheimer’s. Helen was born in Tipton, Michigan on April 21, 1929 to Owen and Marie (Bornfleth) King. She graduated from Onsted High School in 1946. In 1950 Helen married Ernie Scheuerman at St. Joseph’s Shrine in Irish Hills, Michigan. They lived and worked in Adrian until 1968, then moved to Howell, Michigan. In 1978 they moved to Holland. Helen was a career woman before that term became popular. Always good with numbers, she combined a bookkeeping career with successfully raising her family. In Howell, she worked in Human Resources at McPherson Community Health Center, until the move to Holland where she worked as an administrative Assistant at People’s State Bank and at the end of her career a computer operator at DeBoer Bauman. Helen was an avid boater and enthusiastic golfer. Retirement years were spent cruising Lake Michigan, RV traveling, and golfing between Michigan and Florida and wintering in Florida. Helen was a charter member of Our Lady of The Lake Catholic Church and Bayshore Yacht Club. Helen is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Ernie; daughters Barbara (Steven) Naber and Karen (Jim) Gardner, all of Holland; grandchildren Jeff (Peggy) Naber of Grand Rapids, and Kelli (Nathan) Linnneman of Chicago; nieces and nephews.
