Along with all those who knew and loved her, Evangelism Explosion mourns the death of Helen DeVos, who passed away on October 18 at 90 years of age. The beloved wife of Rich DeVos, Amway co-founder and a former member of the EE Board of Directors, Mrs. DeVos was a loving wife, mother and grandmother with a heart of compassion for others. A devoted follower of Jesus, in whose presence she now stands, she is renowned for her philanthropy, having given generously throughout her life to ministries, Christian education, children’s health, and the arts.

Helen and Rich were good friends for decades of the late D. James and Anne Kennedy. When in Florida, the DeVos’ regularly attended Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, where Dr. Kennedy, the founder of Evangelism Explosion, served as senior minister.

Our deepest condolences and prayers are extended to Rich DeVos, at the loss of his dear wife and treasured life companion, as well as to Rich and Helen’s wonderful family.

A Celebration of Life public reception for Mrs. DeVos will be held Tuesday, Oct. 24, from 3:30-6:30 pm in the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel Ambassador Ballroom in Grand Rapids, MI. To learn more about the extraordinary legacy of love, Christian witness, and generosity Mrs. DeVos has left for her family and thousands of others, visit HelenDeVos.com.
