Obituary for Marie Lampen

March 19, 1923 - January 27, 2020
Holland, Michigan | Age 96


Marie June Lampen left her 96 yearlong journey on Monday, January 27, 2020 to settle into her eternal home. Marie loved Christ, her husband, children, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren, relatives, friends and church family. She served the Lord by being devoted to those she loved with a servant's attitude.

She was born on March 19, 1923 in Allegan, Michigan to Harry and Leah Weaver. She graduated from Allegan High School in 1940 and married Herbert Lampen in 1942. They spent the first three years of their marriage living in Three Rivers, Michigan until they purchased their farm in Diamond Springs, Michigan. She was a member of the Diamond Springs Wesleyan Church from 1944 until her death. Over the 69 years of marriage, she and her husband especially enjoyed their country life style, which included farming, raising cattle, growing evergreens and camping with their best friends, Jack and Ada Krause.

Her husband and best friend, Herbert, preceded her in death on January 22, 2011 and their son, Donald Lampen, on July 17, 2012. Her parents, Harry (1895-1979) and Leah (1893-1984) Weaver preceded her in death along with her only sibling, Geraldine TerAvest in 1973. The following brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law preceded her in death: Harold and Leona Lampen, John and Delia DeYoung and Louis and Betty TerAvest along with her father-in-law and mother-in-law Herman & Hermina Lampen.

Marie leaves behind a daughter and son-in-law Jane and Bob Ashby (Holland MI), daughter-in-law, Judy Lampen (Paw Paw MI); seven grandchildren Richard (Lori) Lampen (Bolivia), Amy (Chip) Kietzmann (Arkansas), Ryan (Abbie-Jo) Wilcox (Ann Arbor MI), Megan (Jim) Zimmerman (Holland MI), Clay (Christina) Ashby (Zeeland MI), Jennifer Lampros (Paw Paw MI) and Melisa (Steve) Lautenschleger (Hopkins MI); eleven great grandchildren Kaylynn Lampen, John (Emily) Kietzmann, Samuel Kietzmann, Adelyn & Annelle Wilcox, Kiona (Jacob) Assink, Logan Zimmerman, Kaylee Ashby, Josh Lampros, Taylor (Brandon) Holczman and Cameron (Kelly) Lautenschleger; five great great grandchildren. Also surviving her is close friend Gloria Bareman (Drenthe MI).

Her favorite verse is Psalm 28:7: "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; therefore, my heart exults, and with my song I shall thank Him."
