POOL, Geertje (nee Stolte)

February 20, 1914 – March 9, 2011

In the early hours of March 9th, Mom passed on to glory and is now at home with her Lord. She was born in Nieuwleusen, Netherlands and immigrated to Canada in June, 1947. She was predeceased by her husband John in 2004 and was the last remaining member of her Stolte siblings. She is survived by her 4 children; John (Gertie), Jennie (Sid), Archie (Diane) and George (Claire) as well as 11 grandchildren, 28 great grandchildren and 11 great, great grandchildren. After the loss of her husband of 67 years Mom resided at MSA manor and in spite of her increasing loss of memory, limited recognition of visitors and often physical pain, she never grumbled or complained. The family wishes to thank the staff of MSA manor for their wonderful care and love that they have shown our mother for the last 6 years. Friends and family are invited to celebrate her life; a graveside service will take place Tuesday, March 15 at 11:00 a.m. at Hazelwood Cemetery followed by a memorial service at 1:00 p.m. at Trinity Christian Reformed Church, 3215 Trethewey St. Abbotsford.
