Miriam Horn Obituary

Miriam I. Horn passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 18, 2024, at the age of 82. She was born on July 22, 1941, in Alto, MI and was the beloved daughter of Clare and Helen (Kyser) Alderink.


She married James (Dewey) Horn a week after she graduated from Lowell High School in 1959 and they have enjoyed over 64 years of marriage and resided the past 51years in the Nashville area.


Miriam will be lovingly remembered by her husband, James Horn, her children, Jim (Sandi) Horn, Jeff Horn, Sandi (Brett) Verus, Suzi (Jeff) Hamilton, her grandchildren Jamie Horn, Jessica (Ryan) Gianoulis, Nick Horn, Meagan (Zak) Herrmann, Rachael (Damon) Davidson, Greg Hamilton, Tom (Graycen) Hamilton, Morgan and Karrson Verus, 9 great-grandchildren, brother, John (Marcia) Alderink, Ron (Katie) Alderink, brother-in-law, Greg Seeley(Lorna Scheid), brother-in-law, Neil (Marge) Horn, Sister-in-law, Linda (Bruce) Freeman and sister-in law, Carol Horn and several nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.


In the many years Miriam attended Nashville Baptist Church, she joyfully volunteered and served wherever there was a need and was always there with a smile. She also enjoyed walking weekday mornings at the church gymnasium with her dear “walker” friends. The numerous cards and visits during her stay at the hospital and then at the Flower House meant so much to her.


Miriam was brilliantly talented with crafts, especially sewing. She was known as the “bear” lady as she lovingly sewed hundreds of “memory bears”. She would use the clothing of late loved ones to craft bears in their memory, which brought comfort to many.


Her favorite name was “grandma”. Through many calls, cards, or FaceTimes, her caring presence was always available to her family. You always left her home with a full stomach, arms full of treasures and hearts full of her unwavering love.


Miriam was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters, Kay Alderink and Marcia Seeley, her In-law’s, Lawrence and Lucretia Horn, Nancy and Karl Sichler, and Ron Horn.


The family will have a private burial at the Barryville Cemetery, Nashville, MI.


A Celebration of Life service will be held at 12pm on Tuesday May 28, 2024, at the Nashville Baptist Church in Nashville, MI. Guests are invited to remain at the church immediately following the memorial service for a time of fellowship and luncheon. Memorial contributions can be made to the Nashville Baptist Church or to the Trucking Collective mission (TheTruckingCollective.org)
