Kathleen Rae Shetenhelm | Obituaries

Kathleen Rae (Sprik) Shetenhelm, 75 years old, went to Lady Lake, Florida, home to see her Savior on January 10, 2022.

She was a resident of Cadillac, Michigan and Lady Lake, Florida.

Kathy was born on April 19, 1946 in Cadillac Michigan to Donald J. and Edna (Batts) Sprik. She grew up in Lake City and Okemos, Michigan.

Kathy was married to high school sweetheart Larry for 59 years, and they had three children, nine grandchildren, lots of moves and lots of adventures. Kathy could make a home anywhere.

Not only was Kathy a devoted wife and loving mother, but she was also a very talented seamstress and was involved in the quilting community throughout.

Kathy emphasized the importance of family roots for her 100% Dutch family. Even more important to Kathy was the time she spent preparing and teaching Bible studies in both Michigan and Florida.

Kathy leaves behind her loyal husband Larry Shetenhelm, their children Joy (Kedon) Lamphere, Larry Scott (Deanne) Shetenhelm, and Kelli Simons; her grandchildren, Elya (Aaron) Vitt, Veronika Lamphere, Katie Simons, Mitchell (Belle) Shetenhelm, Jonathan “Jack” Simons, Kedon Izaak Lamphere, Carter Shetenhelm, Erin Shetenhelm and Mark Simons; her siblings Sandra Veldheer, Peggy Burkholder, Dawn (Dave) Gould, Lori (Kim) Sandow and Don (Cindy) Sprik. She also leaves a brother-in-law, Steve (Lorna) Shetenhelm and sister-in-law, Judy Shetenhelm and many nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Her parents and her brother-in-law preceded her in death: Jim Veldheer and Bruce Burkholder.

A memorial service will be held in Lady Lake, Florida on January 15, 2022.

Family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of Kathy’s life held at Jennings Community Church in May.
