Mrs. Boss was born June 9, 1921, in Petoskey, Michigan the daughter of Alfred and Julia (Pierson) Heynig. A loving & devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend & Christian woman. Edie (as she preferred) loved spending time laughing, telling stories, jokes, singing and volunteering time to build God’s kingdom. She was able to travel the world with the love of her life, Bill. She told her nurse & friend Ricki, “When we traveled Bill would be in charge of the camera equipment & I the children.” Then they’d have a big laugh. She loved her church family, Christian service & looked forward to sharing her time, talents & treasures to build God’s kingdom. She looked forward to her weekly trips collecting items and food to donate to organizations like Helping Hands in Howard City. After living in Sand Lake for decades she & Bill moved into Clark Retirement Community in Grand Rapids. At Clark, she spent a lot of time encouraging her friends in the nursing unit to eat. She created stained glass lamps & night lights used as fund-raisers. She also participated in their young children’s reading program. Everyone who knew Edie said she lived her life with an uplifting & positive spirit, sharing the love of Christ with everyone. Edie will be remembered with love. We will remember how with every sunrise she prayed for her family and praised “God’s beautiful paintbrush.” On behalf of all her family, we’d like to thank you for your support and prayers. We wish all of you Christ Jesus’ peace and comfort. God bless and keep you.
