Obituary for Janice "Jan" Vollink

May 9, 1937 - December 18, 2021
Holland, Michigan | Age 84


Janice "Jan" (Mokma) Vollink, age 84, of Holland passed away on Saturday, December 18th after a brief stay at Vista Springs.

Jan was proud to have been a charter member of Haven Christian Reformed Church and a current member of First Reformed Church of Zeeland. Jan married Bob Vollink in 1959 and after being a stay-at-home mom for nearly 15 years, Jan re-entered the workforce. She enjoyed working at the Dutchess shop in Zeeland, and then spent 20 plus years as a successful travel agent which allowed her to travel the world with her husband and extended family. Jan always said "work is what I do best" and when the travel agency closed she worked for another 20 years at Michigan West Shore nursery and became part of a new work family there.

Jan was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years in 2016, and her siblings and in-laws, Ken Mokma, Donna Mokma and Marcia Mokma, George & Thelma Vollink, Irene and Arnold Wykstra, John and Jenny Vollink, Gladys and Willis DeWys, and Stan and Lila Vollink.

Jan is survived by her children Vicki (Ron) Janowiak, Nancy (David) Houghtaling and Greg (Jodi) Vollink and grandchildren Alex and Sophie Vollink and Ethan Houghtaling. She is also survived by her dear sister Joan (Rich) Broersma of Zeeland and Ruth and Robert VanderLugt of Florida and numerous nieces and nephews.

A funeral service honoring Jan will be held at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 21, 2021 at Yntema Funeral Home, 251 S. State St., Zeeland. A time of visitation will take place prior, from 10:00 am – 11:00 am, also at the funeral home. Memorial Contributions may be given to Zeeland Christian Schools.
