Our thoughts and prayers are with the DeVos family as they mourn the loss of their mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and wife. Helen was a true leader in our community, on her own and at the side of husband, Rich. Her support for health, education and the arts has touched nearly every person in West Michigan in some small or large way, including Davenport University, which has benefitted from the support of the entire DeVos family. We will miss Helen, but we know that her legacy shines on in the many lives so greatly enhanced by her generous spirit.
