Leona "Toots" Overholt, passed peacefully on Friday, April 16, 2021, at the age of 97; and is awaiting the return of her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Born June 4, 1923 into a farming family, she worked as a "Rosie the Riveter" during WWII at the Ypsilanti bomber plant, and she continued working full time to fund her children's Christian education. She loved God, reading the Bible and devoting time to prayer. She was a long-time member of Burton Heights Christian Reformed Church and later Millbrook. Her loved ones were very dear to her, and she always remembered everyone's birthday. She also enjoyed flowers, travelling with Bob, and keeping fit with her daily walks. Family and friends will miss her lively sense of humor and independent mind. At the age of 89, Lee got her first passport and went on a European tour, visiting London and Paris. In her later years, she was cared for by her daughter Marjorie. Her husband, Bob; and her son, Cal, preceded her in death.  She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Richard (Mary) Overholt, and Marjorie Plunkett; her grandchildren, Jessica (Tom) Johnson, Stephanie (Kyle) Tullock, Shawn (Chris) Plunkett, Dr. Erin (Eugenio) Donadoni-Plunkett; great grandchildren, Jasmine, Savannah, Ashtyn, Justice, Luca, Cali and Noel; many special nieces, nephews, and cousins.  A graveside committal service will be held 2:30 pm, Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, with Pastor Bob Daniel officiating. Cards and condolences may be sent to 7640 Quail Run, SE; Grand Rapids, MI 49508.
