Life Story / Obituary
Mary Ellen Lunderberg, 83, passed away unexpectedly on December 6, 2016 living as the healthiest, most active, octogenarian at the Warm Friend in Holland, Michigan. Mary Ellen was a devoted wife, loving mother, and dear friend to us all. She was one of the most caring, benevolent, and merciful individuals. She lived life large and made the most of every minute. Mary Ellen touched many people in life as nurse and founder of the infant program at the Ottawa Area Center, as an active member in her church, as a member of several boards, as an avid sportswoman, as a champion knitter, and as a friend and confidante to many. She lived life fully serving as a bright light in our world. We all strive to follow her legacy. Mary Ellen is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Norm; sister-in-law, Dee Ginthner; brothers Roger (Kitty) Johnson and David (Carol) Johnson; son Jon (Marla) Lunderberg; daughters Pat (Dave) Van Wylen and Carol (Bill) Stauffer; and grandchildren Nathan (Hannah), Thomas, Madison, Mark, Eric (Elisira), David, Anna, Jacob, and Max along with many relatives and friends.
