On Saturday, June 6, 2020, our beloved wife, mother, Oma, Great Oma, sister, and aunt passed peacefully to her heavenly home with family by her side.
Tina will be forever missed by her beloved and devoted husband of 61 years, Adrian; her children: Joanne (Daryl), Wendy (Gary), Caroline (Dave), John (Marla), and Trish (Fred); 15 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, as well as her siblings: Aaltje, Aaf, Henk, Dirk, Piet, Klarie, their spouses, her special cousin Tinie, and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by both parents and her brother, Jan.
Tina was born in St. Jacobiparochie, Netherlands in 1929 and immigrated to Canada to pursue her nursing career, where she met the love of her life, Adrian, whom she married in 1958. The family would like to thank Dr. Adam Parrish and the staff of Allen Gray Continuing Care Centre in Edmonton for the excellent care Tina received over the last 11 years.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, a private memorial/celebration of Tina’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, if family and friends so desire, memorial donations in Tina’s memory can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta & NWT, #306 – 10430 61 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB, T6H 2J3.
