Griet Kerkhof

In Memorial

October 24, 1930 ~ August 21, 2016

It is with great sadness that our dear Mother and Oma passed away at age 85 at Maple Ridge Seniors Village. Predeceased in 2009 by her husband Simon, Griet will be deeply missed by her daughter Barb, son-in-law Jason, grand daughters, Afke, Sonja, her many relatives and friends. Born in the Netherlands, Griet worked as a seamstress until she married and moved to Canada. She resided on Texada Island, Powell River and Maple Ridge. She was a wonderful friendly person who always made you feel very welcome with a big smile. She took great pride in watching her grand daughters grow up and they were very close. Her family meant everything to her and always came first.

A memorial service will be held at St. Patrick’s church, 22561 – 121st Avenue, Maple Ridge on Tuesday, August 30th at 11 am with a reception to follow.

We would very much like to thank all the doctors and staff at Maple Ridge Seniors Village for the exceptional care and comfort that they provided.

Expressions of sympathy can be made below.

    Dear Barb and family
    I am so sorry to hear about your moms passing. She was a very kind and loving lady. I had the pleasure of knowing her through my grandparents ( Jan and Jacoba van Dok).
    I was older when your parents got married so never had the opportunity to meet you, but heard many wonderful things about you.
    Take care and all the best.
