Carla Denice Dimkoff, age 49, of Hudsonville was healed as she entered Heaven on Wednesday, October 15, 2008 after a decade-long battle with breast cancer. She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Bernice (Frost) Keller. She is survived by her husband, Professor Gregg Dimkoff; children Brandy (Nick) Piccard of Jacksonville, NC; Reverend Ryan (Gabrielle) Tarrow of Lafayette, IN; Andrew Tarrow of Grand Rapids, MI; sisters Linda (Rick) Robbins and Nancy (Truman) Thompson; brothers Kevin (Amy) Keller; David (Debbie) Bissett; Larry (Leigh) Keller; Billy (Patty) Keller; Todd Keller; grandchildren Dana, Eric, and Isaac Piccard; and best friends Cindy and Gene Davidson.
She will be remembered especially for her intense passion, her love of life, and the many gatherings of her family and friends to share Christmas celebrations in her home decorated like a Christmas fairytale. She had a huge impact on all those who knew her, and will be terribly missed by many, many people.
There will be a private family service. Those who wish to do so may make memorial contributions to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Arrangements are by Lakeshore Memorial Services. An online registry book is available at www.lakeshorememorial.com
