Obituary for Elizabeth (Libby) Anne Ellerbroek

August 19, 1968 - May 6, 2019
Zeeland, Michigan | Age 50


Beloved mother and wife Elizabeth (Libby) Anne Ellerbroek passed unexpectedly at her home in Vriesland on Monday, May 6th, 2019.

Libby was born to the late Mary and Donald Boes of Zeeland on August 19th, 1968. She graduated from Zeeland Public High School in 1986, and had a degree in business from Davenport College.

She was an active member of the Central Avenue Christian Reformed Church family, where she was also happily employed for many years. She is survived by her husband Karl Ellerbroek whom she married on December 9, 1988. She is also survived by her 3 children, Samantha, of Kalamazoo; Nathan and Nicki, of Holland; and Adrianne, of Fenton. She is also survived by her 2 sisters, Sally and Walter Fairbanks, of Grand Rapids; and Linda and Don Scott, of Dayton, Ohio; father and mother-in-law Karl and Adele Ellerbroek; sisters and brothers-in-law: Connie and Nate Dryer, Kelly and Lori Ellerbroek, Kevin and Jill Ellerbroek and several nieces and nephews.

Libby was one in a million. She loved to sing and dance, and did it often. Her voice was unforgettable, and it could be heard on Sundays in the church pews as well as in her kitchen while she was cleaning around the house. She loved her family and her animals, and always had a kind word and a warm meal for anybody who needed it. She was a good woman, wife, friend and mother. The world is a little less bright without her in it, and she will be dearly missed.

A memorial service will be held at 7 pm Monday, May 13, 2019 at Central Avenue Christian Reformed Church, 259 Central Avenue, Holland with a time of visitation from 5:30-6:30 pm prior to the memorial service.
