VAN BERKOM – The family of the late Marie Cecile van Berkom who passed away on January 31, 2017 would like to express their heartfelt appreciation and thanks to all those who supported us in our time of grief at the loss of our Mother, Oma and Super Oma.
Thankyou for the visits to the funeral home, flowers, cards, donations to the Alzheimer’s society, and attendance at the funeral service. Thankyou to all those who came from far and wide, flying or driving many hours, packed with children and with Dutch treats for the families. It was very much appreciated. Special thanks to Pastor Bob Doble for officiating the service at Knox Presbyterian church on February 17, 2017; to Ian Hepburn, pianist and harpist; Jim Forbes, piper; to all the grandchildren (pallbearers)– David, Tamar, Melanie, Marissa, Erica, Kate, Corey, and Noah; to Sebastian for his moving tribute to our mother, Lidwina for her wonderful and heartfelt words and Judith for her emotional tribute to a cherished  mother and friend; and to the Ladies at Knox who prepared such a delicious lunch after the service. We thank The Glebe Centre, Bankwood staff in Ottawa for the care they gave our mother in her last years. A special thanks to Anna Jesionka, KheelaNaw and Larry Sinardo for the extra care you provided to Marie at the Glebe Centre and to At Home Hospice staff for care provided both at the Embassy West and The Glebe Centre.  And finally, thank you to Lisa and her husband, Mark, from Hillcrest Funeral Home in Vankleek Hill for the delicate, efficient and compassionate handling of all the details.
