January 30, 1927 - September 10, 2021
Mrs. Shirley L. Klett, age 94, passed away Friday evening, September 10, 2021, at Grand Pines Assisted Living Center in Grand Haven. She was born January 30, 1927, in Muskegon to Lester and Ida (Carver) Westenfelder. Mrs. Klett resided in Muskegon all of her life, and enjoyed wintering in Zephyrhills, Florida for many years with her husband. She was a member of Lakeside Baptist Church, where she sang in the choir, and Spring Lake Baptist Church. Mrs. Klett worked at JC Penney for many years before retiring. On September 26, 1947 she married Aubrey C. Klett and lived happily with him for 65 years. In their life together they built their own home and raised three children. Their loving partnership was easy to see in the way they planned favorite family camping vacations to Silver Lake and large annual holiday feasts featuring pumpkin pie, escalloped potatoes, and meat loaf. The meals were always a busy, happy occasion with many smiles and much laughter. Mrs. Klett was always deeply involved in her children’s lives, first as a mother but also as a den mother through many Cub Scout and 4H meetings and outings. She was always supportive and generous with her time, even after her children had left home. She developed many friendships at work, at church, and, lately, at Grand Pines in Grand Haven. Mrs. Klett is survived by her three children: Dr. Paul (Dorothy) Klett, Pamela (Nate) VanderMolen, and Debra (Jack) Meyer; 3 grandchildren, 4-great grandchildren, and 3 great-great-grandchildren. The funeral service will be Thursday, September 16, at 11:00 AM at Lee Chapel, 6291 S. Harvey Street, Norton Shores, MI 49444. Visitation will be Wednesday, September 15 from 5-8 PM, also at the funeral home. Burial will take place at Lakeside Cemetery. Contributions in memory of Mrs. Klett may be made to Lakeside Baptist Church or Hospice of N. Ottawa.
