Barbara F. Pierce of Cedar Springs passed away peacefully in the care of At Home Memory Care in her home on Tuesday, February 17, 2015. Barbara was born December 26, 1921 in Honolulu, Hawaii as Barbara Frances Smith. She was the mother of seven to Louis Patrick, Margaret Anita, Cynthia Sue and Martin Edward; grandmother and great grandmother and friend to many. Barbara was both mother and father to her children. She allowed her children to make their own mistakes but never said, “I told you so.” She was preceded in death by her husband, Vernon Harvey; sons, Donald, Michael and daughter, Patricia. She always had the best looking lawn in town. She was a hard worker, homemaker, gardener and all around beautiful person. Barbara loved going for walks or riding her bicycle around. She also loved a nice day when she would pull out her convertible, put the top down and put the pedal to the metal, letting her hair blow in the wind. She would like us to think of her, not gone but forever remaining in our hearts. We would like to thank At Home Memory Care for taking great care of our beautiful mother/grandmother. The family received friends Monday, February 23 at the Bliss-Witters & Pike Funeral Home, Cedar Springs. Interment Elmwood Cemetery.
