January 17, 1956 to October 25, 2022
On Tuesday afternoon, October 25, 2022, after ten days of illness, the LORD took to Himself His special covenant child, Grace Henderika Homan. She was the beloved daughter of the late Jan† and Rienje† Homan. Dear sister to Gary & Linda† Homan, Jake† Homan, Henry & Annelies Homan, and Edith Homan, and dear sister-in-law to Maria Pereira.

She will be greatly missed by the residents and staff of Anchor Home where she resided for almost 36 years, being one of the original residents. She will also be missed by her many great-nieces and great-nephews.
God blessed Grace with the gift of music. She loved to listen to music and could sing every song in the Book of Praise. She could play all the melodies on the keyboard by ear. She will be remembered for her enthusiastic involvement in the Anchor Band, along with her humorous ways of keeping everyone in line.
