April 18, 1930 – January 23, 2016
at the age of 85 years
“IN THE ARMS OF AN ANGEL” We announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother Franciska Stipdonk on January 23, 2016.
“Francis” was born April 18th, 1930 in Amsterdam NL and moved to Canada in 1972.
She loved nature with all the flowers and animals spending many a day basking in its beauty.
Francis was a strong woman who did whatever she set her mind to and ventured wherever her heart led.
Having coffee with her “girls” and playing games with friends and family were her joys that kept her busy and loving life.
We will smile when we think of her strong will, fun banter, changing the rules of the game, sneaking to Tim Horton’s and expecting you on time.
She leaves behind to watch over, her son Evert (Marion), Daughter Gerda , Grandchildren Melanie (Clayton), Robert (Katelyn), Jennifer (Derek) and 4 beautiful great grandchildren.
We would like to thank all our families and friends for their help and support and also Francis’s friends who have been so supportive!
“You were given life because you were strong enough to Live it!
