Arlene Johns (Kooman)

February 10, 1933 ~ November 11, 2017 (age 84)

JOHNS (KOOMAN) -   Arlene Johns, age 84, went to be with her Lord, Saturday, November 11, 2017. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Johns; her parents Albert Sr. and Gladys Kooman; and her nephew, John Kooman.

Arlene will be lovingly remembered by her son, Randall (Kendra) Johns; her grandchildren Alexis Johns and Tyler Johns; her brother, Albert Jr. (Deanna) Kooman; her nephews Wayne (Cathy) Kooman, Richard (Bobbie) Kooman, Brian (Melinda) Kooman; and her longtime friend, Norma Schrickel.

Arlene was born in Jamestown Township. She grew up farming and found a love for horses. Arlene was Valedictorian of her class at Hudsonville High School. Her hobbies were traveling, shopping, watching movies, and floating in a pool to relax. She worked as a credit processor at Union Bank for many years. Arlene loved her “retirement job” as a driver for Grand Rapids Auto Auction in Jenison, because she got to explore the open road, listen to music, and stop for her favorite foods at lunch.

A memorial service will be held 3 PM Wednesday, November 15, 2017, at Cook Memorial Chapel, 4235 Prairie St. SW, Grandville, Michigan. Pastor Harvey Heneveld will officiate. In honor of Arlene, contributions may be made to Spectrum Health Hospice. The family welcomes memories and messages in their guestbook online at
