Obituary of Hennie Van Wilgenburg
VAN WILGENBURG (BOERSMA), Hendrikje “Hennie” – age 83, Hantsport, NS
Hennie left this world peacefully on June 15, 2020 at Harbour View Haven in Lunenburg, NS. Hennie was born in Groningen, Netherlands in 1937 and immigrated to Canada in 1952 where she met her husband Willem (2004). Hennie loved people, and she had a special love for children and animals. One beloved pet who cannot go without a special mention was “Nellie”. We all knew and loved Nellie too. Hennie is survived by her children Tony (Teresa), Andrea (Rogerio), Steven (Enid); as well as her grandchildren Winnifred, Fiona, Sophie, Declan and Dylan, and her three great grandchildren (Ruth, Wyatt, and Willem). The family would like to thank the staff at Harbour View Haven for the loving care provided to Hennie and for being able to laugh at her mischief. We are also thankful for the love and support of Hennie’s siblings and close friends over the years, she loved you all dearly and you were a source of strength for her during life’s difficult times. By request, there will be no visitation at this time. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations in Hennie’s memory can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia. Arrangements have been entrusted to Sweeny’s Funeral Home, Bridgewater where online condolences and donations may be made by visiting www.sweenysfuneralhome.com.
