Obituary

Our earthly angel received her heavenly wings on Saturday, April 25th.

Dulci was a beautiful, beautiful blessing to our family and to those whose lives she touched.
Her strength and determination were so evident as she gracefully persevered through many disabilities beginning at the innocent age of 9 weeks. At an early age she showed signs she was different than the rest of us and she sure was, she was special.

Dulci was given only 10 years to live at the time of her diagnosis, but with her fighting spirit and the grace of God, she beat the odds until her last days. Her strength had no bounds which was evident through the battles she overcame.

Dulci could not sit, walk, eat, or speak. Despite these challenges, she communicated to all who knew her through her eyes, her smile, spunky attitude, and gentle wave of the arm. Without speaking a word, Dulci lived her sinless life with an abundance of peace, patience, and love. She was an inspiration to those around her, teaching us more about life than any able-bodied person ever could. Dulci was the glue that held her loving family together, showing us what was truly important. She is, and always will be, Mom's forever baby, beautiful lady, and joy. She was Dad's sweet angel, who gave him a sense of purpose. She was always known as the favorite in the family and her siblings lovingly nick-named her 'Booger face" and "Dulci Jeanie Weenie". Dulci's presence in her family's lives greatly impacted their paths.

She found joy in attending school and spending time with all her friends and family at Special Needs week. She especially loved music, bumpy car rides and spa days where she would fall asleep while being lathered up with lotion and getting her hair washed. We are forever grateful to Dulci's caregivers who cared for Dulci over the years and especially this last year. We could not imagine life without their support.

Dulci was preceded in death by her dad, Ronald and brother, Joshua. She is survived by her mom, Vonnie; siblings, Misty (Jordan) Sligh, DeeDee (Derek) DeFrell, Jordan Genzink, Belle (Matthew) Kuyvenhoven, Sadie Genzink; nieces and nephews, Max, Westin, and Auden, Griffin and Paisley, Oliver, Everly, Dexter; Grandma, Audrey Allen.

As her father and big brother Josh met her at those pearly gates, we are rejoicing in the promise of Heaven. We smile at the image of her long curly locks flowing behind her as she runs to meet her Savior. She is physically whole as she rests in Gods arms and just as perfect as she always was here on earth.

The family will have a time of visitation on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 followed by a committal service with Rev. Marvin Hofman officiating. Burial will be in Restlawn Memorial Gardens. Memorial contributions can be made to "CRCG - Special Needs Week" Christian Reformed Conference Grounds, 12253 Lake Shore Dr. Grand Haven, MI 49417.
