Zylstra, Sia (Siertje) 7/3/1936 - 2/8/2017 Ionia It is with great sadness and joy we remember Sia (Siertje) Zylstra, who went to be with her Lord and Saviour the evening of February 8, 2016. Thankfully, she was surrounded by her family. Sia loved Jesus and made sure everyone she met knew they could be loved by Him too. Sia was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the youngest of nine children. Her sister, Wilhelmina (Willie) Willems and several nieces and nephews in the Netherlands will miss her. She is loved by her husband of 51 years, Dirk, and children Sonia Noorman (Mike), Lisa Zylstra-Jacoby (Andrew), and Edo Zylstra (Christi). She adored her nine grandchildren Hannah Noorman (Schaddebadatje), Kate Noorman (Snoekepoek), Luke and Megan Dimmer (Liefke), Haley Jacoby (Lachabekje), Eli Jacoby (Knuffeltje), Aeden Jacoby (Poekie Doe), Ellen Zylstra (Roeske Boeske), Jonas Zylstra (Mien Jonkje), and Noah Zylstra (Schattebol). Visitation with the family is on Tuesday, February 14 at 6:00-9:00pm at Third Reformed Church 2060 Michigan St NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. In lieu of flowers or donations, please love someone and pay it forward. If you knew Sia and have a memory you would like to share, please post it on her Memorial page on Facebook.
