Tribute & Message From The Family


Rosella "Rosie" Strabbing, age 80, of Hudsonville, went to be with Jesus her Savior on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.

Rosie was a gentle woman who cared deeply for her family. She was a good listener, a mediator when she needed to be, and had a smile that could light up a room. Along with her husband, Clif, Rosie traveled throughout all 50 states. After Clif died, she expanded her travels to many places around the globe.

Rosie was a woman of deep faith. She was a charter member of Fairhaven Ministries in Hudsonville (as well as a charter member of Faith Reformed in Zeeland). She was active in Bible studies and was a prayer warrior.

Rosie is survived by her sons: Brent (Jane), Blake (Paula) and Rev. Chad (Jennifer); 12 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren (with 2 more on the way); in-laws: Carol Strabbing, Donna Vander Veen, Bud Beukema; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Clifford Strabbing in 2010; granddaughter, Grace Elizabeth; and sister Laurie Beukema.

The Strabbing family will be having a private funeral service at Yntema Funeral Home. Burial will be in Georgetown Cemetery.

The family would like to express deep appreciation to the wonderful staff of Reflections at Sunset for the loving care they gave to Rosie in the final months of her life. Memorial contributions may be given to Hospice of Holland. To leave a condolence for the family or to view the service online, please visit www.yntemafh.com.

I am so sorry that I am not able to speak with you all personally to express my condolences on behalf of Fair Haven Church. What a difficult time this is to lose your dear mother and grandmother. I am sure many church members have fond memories of your parents and would love to be able to express them to you. When I visited your parents I was always struck by their devout faith and easy friendly ways. What a joyous reunion your parents must be having as their rejoice with their Lord and Savior.
