Sally Anne Gelderloos, a loving mother, grammy, and friend was born in Washington D.C. on July 26, 1945 to the late Walter and Margaret Schad and passed away at home on May 28, 2018. Sally is survived by her two daughters, Mary and her husband, Joseph Clawson, Suzanne Gelderloos; grandchildren, Elijah Reginald and Jeremiah Clawson; sister, Teresa (Tom) Aument; sister in law, Lori Schad; several nieces and nephews. Along with her parents she was preceded in death by her brother, Bill Schad.  Sally graduated from Aquinas College in 1973; she was a Dominican Sister from 1963 to 1968.

Sally worked at First of America Bank, and retired from the Ottawa County Road Commission. She was a  seamstress, and loved using her artistic abilities while being active in the churches that she attended. She enjoyed reading, antique collecting, cooking, singing in choir, yard-sales, gardening, wood working, being creative, and always had a curious spirit, and appreciated a challenge. Sally enjoyed being an active member in the churches she attended, Sacred Heart Church, Our Lady of Grace, and Spring Lake Wesleyan Church where she  participated in setting up the yearly pageant.  She also attended Olivet Evangelical Free Church 6790 Harvey Street in Spring Lake, where a funeral service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 3, 2018.  Visitation will be held at the church from 2:30 p.m. until the time of service at 3:00 p.m.  Interment will be next to her family in Riverside Cemetery near Custer, Michigan.  She is loved and will be missed dearly.

    We were truly blessed to have had the privilege to know Sally. She was always so kind and sweet. For her family, take comfort in knowing what a special person she was and how deeply she filled your lives. We will always remember her smiling face. God Bless you Sally.

    I offer  my  sincere  condolences  to  the Gelderloos family.  It can be hard to  find  comfort  after the loss  of  a loved  one. In these  times we often  wonder  will suffering  ever end.  The bible tells  us  that  “soon suffering  will be no more.”  and that we can “look to God for comfort in all of our trials.” (Revelation  21: 3,4) – (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4) jw.org

    Sincerely, Heather Walton
