Grace Hattie Boulter, 91

Grace Hattie Boulter, 91, passed away peacefully on Dec. 27, 2019.

She was born March 26, 1928, at home in Pine Plains, N.Y., to Elmer and Julia Hobert.

Grace loved her family and bringing people joy. She was kind to others and loved to send cards with a $2 bill and notes to the kids who rode her school bus. She worked for 44 years as a school bus driver for Plainwell Community Schools.

Her hands were always busy. She was either baking, crocheting, sewing, canning, gardening or doing many other things that she loved.

Grace is survived by her sons, Andy (Jean) Boulter of Gobles, and Jon (Lisa) Boulter of Plainwell; a daughter Lori (Kent) Robinson of Westerville, Ohio; nine grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

Grace was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Julia Hobert; two brothers, Carl (Boss) Hobert and Howard (her beloved Buddy) Hobert; and two sisters, Ida Nelson and Vera VanTassel. She was also preceded in death by her oldest daughter, Cindy Boulter Edson, in 1990. What a reunion in Heaven there will be for all of them.

Cremation will take place at Hills Funeral Home in Westerville, Ohio. There will be a memorial service at Doster Community Reformed Church in Plainwell on Saturday, Feb. 8, at 1 p.m. Pastor Steve Slater will officiate. A luncheon will immediately follow.

Interment will be at a later date at Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Bath, Mich., where her parents are buried.
