Obituary for Jessica Lynn Paauwe

March 14, 1991 - March 24, 2018
Grand Rapids, Michigan | Age 27


Jessica Lynn Paauwe, has left her earthly home to be with the Lord on Saturday March 24th 2018. Daughter of Brian Paauwe and Linda Deveson, she was born on March 14, 1991 in Holland, MI. She graduated from Holland Public Schools and was continuing her education at Grand Rapids Community College.

Jessica was the most loving, caring and thoughtful woman who cared deeply about her family, friends, animals and others. Jessica's values and selflessness were influenced at an early age by her Grandmother Beatrice E Paauwe. In life, Jessica cared more about others and looked for ways to help. Our world could better itself by learning from her generosity. So when we learned that she was an organ donor and was qualified to donate her organs to help others we weren't surprised. She will be able to help so many others, who may not have had any other options, with the Gift of Life.

Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her family: Her loving partner Seth Hanson; Mother Linda and Steve Deveson; Father Brian Paauwe and partner Mary Harter; Brother Josh and Alyssa Paauwe; Sister Jennifer and Ben Mokma; Brother Jason and Melissa Paauwe; Brother Jeff Paauwe; and Brother Harry Deveson. She was also survived by her two Uncles, that were role models and father figures, Dan and Rick Paauwe and special Aunt Lisa Lichtenwalter. Grandmother Carol Bos. Her nieces: Caitlin Paauwe, Carly Mokma, Cailey Mokma,Ava Paauwe and Anna Bea Paauwe. Her Nephews Carter Mokma and Jackson Paauwe. Her Cat Patches. She is also survived by so many other Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, and cousins.

A time of visitation will be 5-8 p.m. Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at Langeland-Sterenberg Funeral Home, 315 E. 16th St. Holland. Interment will be in Pilgrim Home Cemetery. A private family memorial service will take place on Wednesday, March 28, at Trinity Reformed Church, Holland.
