Obituary for Jerome "Jerry" Allen Kirshman

Jerome Allen “Jerry” Kirshman, age 66, died early Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at his home in Lakeview.  He was born August 9, 1952 in Fenton, the son of Bernard and Sylvia (Becker) Kirshman.  On August 25, 1972, he married Dorinda Nielsen.  His early career was spent at Kelsey Hospital in Lakeview, where he began in maintenance.  He worked hard to become a respiratory therapist, and became one of Montcalm County’s very first EMTs.  Jerry went on to work at Bollinger’s for 27 years, where he was a true jack of all trades.  He and Dorinda have been longtime Settlement Lutheran Church members.  Jerry loved being outside and especially enjoyed feeding the birds and mowing the grass.  He loved playing and watching sports and was a big MSU Spartans fan.  He had a great sense of humor, and was a loving and giving man.  He was an incredibly supportive dad, attending every sporting event his son and daughter participated in.  Jerry was preceded in death by his father, Bernard Kirshman; and parents-in-law, Calvin and Shirley Nielsen.  He is survived by his wife of more than 46 years, Dorinda; son, Jason (Rosie Vizineau) Kirshman of Six Lakes; daughter, Kris Kirshman of Lakeview; grandchildren, Jasmine, Jessa, and Jaden; mother, Sylvia Kirshman of Lake Stanton; brother, Randy (Tammy) Kirshman of Greenville; sisters-in-law, Alicia (Dennis) Dombkowski and Heather Nielsen; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, other relatives, and friends.  Funeral services will be held at 12:00 pm Saturday, January 5, 2018 at Settlement Lutheran Church, Rev. Betsy Kamphuis officiating.  Visitation will be Friday from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Hurst Funeral Home, and Saturday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at church.  Private interment will be in Little Denmark Cemetery.  Memorial contributions may be given to the Settlement Lutheran Church Altar Guild or Hope Lodge.
