Obituary for Dawn Marie Slenk

September 12, 1949 - August 28, 2018
Holland, Michigan | Age 68


Dawn Marie Slenk, daughter of Jacob and Earlene Bakker, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, August 28, 2018.

It was her life, her example, her mistakes, her joy, her faith, and her heart that molded her family into who they have become, and the fingerprints of her life are visible on many of her friends today. Dawn was a quiet hero. She had strong commitments to her faith, her family, and her friends. She modeled what it looks like to love others above herself.

She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Dave, her children; Ben and Jennifer Slenk, Becky Genzink, Joe and Chanda Slenk; grandchildren: Christian, Elizabeth, Noah, Hannah, Taryn, Lauryn, and Camryn; siblings: Loran and Kathy Bakker, Cheri and Steve VanLoo; brothers and sisters-in-law: George VandeVoort, John and Phyllis Slenk, Harry and Sue Slenk, Bonnie and Roger O'Connor, and Gretchen TenBrink.

A special thank you to the many family, friends, and medical professionals (especially Butterworth 5 Center, Spectrum Bone Marrow Transplant Team and Blodgett Acute Rehab) who selflessly cared for Dawn throughout the last two years.

Visitation will be 2 - 4 and 6 - 8 pm Thursday, August 30, 2018 in the chapel of Christ Memorial Church, 595 Graafschap Road, Holland. The funeral service will be at 11 am Friday, August 31, 2018 in the sanctuary of Christ Memorial Church, 595 Graafschap Road. Memorial contributions may be given to Vista Springs for the continuing care of Dave Slenk or to Holland Christian Schools.
