Passed away suddenly, yet peacefully, at home Tuesday, August 31, 2005 in her 92nd year.
She was the last surviving member of the original Zeilstra family that immigrated to Canada in 1952.
Henny was predeceased by her husbnd Jake; father Auke Zeilstra; mother Wijtske Zeilstra; brother Gordon Zeilstra; and sister Alice Beetstra.
Tante Hinke is survived by three nieces and two nephews and their spouses; Art and Chris Zeilstra, Albert and Lucy Spaa, John and Vera Euverman, Bob and Janice Zeilstra, Don and Rita Bedwell; as well as may great nieces and nephews.
After living in Richmond for 42 years and working for CP Air for 22 of those years, Henny joined other family members in South Surrey in 1994 where she built her new life.
As an active member of White Rock Baptist Church, she enjoyed being the oldest member of the senior choir.
She will be missed by all those at “Friday Friends”, those at Bentley Wynd II and the many acquaintances in Ocean Park.
Graveside service for family members was held Friday, September 16, 2005 and a Memorial Service was held Saturday, September 17, 2005 at 11:00 am, at White Rock Baptist Church, 1657 – 140th Street, Surrey, BC, V4A 4H1.
In lieu of flowers, donations to White Rock Baptist Church Seniors would be appreciated.
