In Memory of Corol (Yurick) Vrieling. Feb. 15, 1926 ~ Feb. 27, 2014. Corol (Yurick) Vrieling passed away unexpectedly, following a short battle with congestive heart failure, into the arms of her Saviour on February 27, 2014, at the age of 88, at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. She is survived by her children, Byron Yurick, Darryle Yurick, Sheree (Allan) Hlavach with their children Laura (Bernie), Lindsay, and David; stepchildren, Dianne (Gary) Marty; Nelly (Hans) Speelman and children Anthony, Jacob, Peter, Marguerite; Bill (Carolyn) Vrieling and children Kevin and Arianna, as well as siblings Ruth (Dale) Walkey, Elizabeth Geist, and George Dinwiddy, and 11 nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her first husband, John Yurick, in 1990; by her sister Rebecca Mitchell, in 1993, and by her second husband, Klaas Vrieling, in 2012. Corol was a gentle and devoted mother and Nana who will be deeply missed by her family. While raising her family, she trained and became a much-loved preschool teacher, and, in recent years, a dedicated caregiver to her husband Klaas, lovingly making it possible for him to remain at home until his final illness. Friends and family are invited to celebrate Corol's life; a memorial service will be held Friday, March 14, 10:30 am at Gateway Community Christian Reformed Church, 2884 Abbotsford Mission Hwy, Abbotsford, with Pastor Bert Slofstra officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Corol to Covenant House or another women's ministry of your choice.
