Mary (Maatje) Johanna Van der Haven
November 3, 1934 to January 13, 2017
Mary passed away peacefully into the arms of her Lord and Saviour, with her family by her side. She was predeceased by her daughter, Sylvia McIntosh in 2009.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of almost 60 years, Albert; daughters, Alice (Paul) Lutz, Sandra (Steve) Boulianne; grandchildren, Jennifer, Jeremy (Meagan), Cameron (Ileah), Seth, Zachary, Chloe and Emily. She will also be missed by her son-in-law Andrew McIntosh, two sisters, a brother and numerous extended family members in Holland.
The family would like to thank Dr. Huang, Dr. Carstens and Dr. Lombard for their care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kitimat Food Bank, an organization she volunteered with for many years.
A service was held on Friday, January 20 at the Kitimat Presbyterian Church.
Her gentle ways and smiling face
Are a pleasure to recall.
She had a kindly word for each,
And died beloved by all.
