Gay L. Boyer
October 26, 1939 ~ January 17, 2024 (age 84) 84 Years Old
Gay Lee (Michalewicz) Boyer, 84, passed away Wednesday, January 17, 2024 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Gay was born October 26,1939 to Leolyn E (Taylor)DeMeester and Edward J. Michalewicz. She is survived by her daughters, Kristine, Alice and Michele as well as her 5 grandchildren, Katherine, Olivia, Adam, Megan and William. Gay was preceded in death by her daughter, Amanda Lee Boyer, her mother Lee (Leolyn) DeMeester, and her grandmother, Lida Taylor. Gay led a contented life over the last few years filled with family, reading, occasional painting and her cat Poopsie. She loved going to the library and book stores. Those were her favorite places in the world. She was a reader. She was a writer. She was an artist. She always had a goofy sense of humor that she passed onto her children and grandchildren. Her proudest accomplishment was receiving her bachelor's degree from Grand Valley State University. No funeral service will be held at this time. It was Gay’s desire to be cremated and to have her ashes scattered near the West Coast. Numbers 6:24-26 May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord look upon you with favor and give you peace.
