HASTINGS, MI - Helen (Yurisich) Noteboom, age 80, of Hastings, went to be with our Lord Jesus Christ and his blessed mother, Mary, Queen of Heaven on December 30, 2019 at 3 p.m. (the hour of Divine Mercy), after a six-month battle with cancer.
She is survived by her husband, James Noteboom; sons Terry (Brenda) Noteboom, Mark (Koleen) Noteboom, Robert Noteboom and daughter, Joan Smith; 20 grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren; one sister, Sue Yurisich, and a brother, George Yurisich.
Helen was born on March 5, 1939 and married James on November 10, 1956. Helen had a great devotion to the sacred heart of Jesus and the immaculate heart of Mary. Helen’s greatest prayer was for her family, friends, and everyone she met to make it to Heaven. We will miss her as she was the spiritual adviser for our whole family and many, many others. Helen spent many years volunteering for Barry County Right to Life and Bethany Christian Services.
Helen was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Steve Yurisich and Rose Hollister.
We would like to thank all the family, friends and hospice for their prayers and support.
Memorial contributions can be made to Barry County Right to Life.
The funeral mass was held Monday, Jan. 6, 2020 at St. Rose of Lima Church, 805 S. Jefferson St., Hastings, with luncheon to follow.
