OBITUARY — Mrs. Helen Langridge


Helen Langridge

Mrs. Helen Langridge, age 77, of Rockford passed away on Saturday, June 16, 2012. She was a 1953 graduate of Union High School. Helen helped her husband, Phil, at Langridge Pharmacy; after it was sold, she worked part time at FMB Bank, which soon became a full-time position.

Her children were the focal point of her life. She and Phil built their dream home together, and she enjoyed every moment there. Helen graciously opened her home to family and friends; she was the perfect hostess who had class, a joyful personality, and provided a great time for all. She tolerated Phil’s passion for hunting, camping, shooting, and being one of the founders of Rockford Ambulance. Helen enjoyed and had a passion for playing bridge and was a master bridge player.

She is survived by her children, Amy and Jerry Polley of Plainwell, Lynne and Steve Pfeffer of Farmington Hills, Bruce and Connie Langridge of Ispheming, Leon and Cheryl Langridge of Mason; grandchildren, Matthew Pfeffer, Jesse Renfors, and Shannon Dorris; great-grandchildren, Owen, Alex, and Irelynn; sisters, Mrs. Rita Bulkowski, Mrs. Betty Jones; brother, Wally (Kimmi) Ziemski; in-laws, Mrs. Dorothy Bauman, Janell and Richard Dennis; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Phil Langridge; and her grandson, Nicholas Pfeffer.

The service for Mrs. Langridge was 11:00 a.m. Wednesday at the Pederson Funeral Home with the Rev. Tony Russo officiating. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider DeVos Children’s Hospital, 100 Michigan NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503, or Faith Hospice, 2100 Raybrook NE, Suite 300, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

Arrangements were made by Pederson Funeral Home, Rockford.
