Tina (Styntje) Huizing (nee Van Nes) was received into the glory of her Lord on August 7, 2014 in Abbotsford, BC. Tina was born March 17, 1931 in Rijsoord, Netherlands. She lived and worked in the Netherlands, earning her nursing training at VanderBergstichting, Bethesda and Eudokia in the Netherlands, working until 1958 when she moved to Alberta, Canada. Tina married Berend (Bert) Huizing on January 22, 1959 in the Netherlands. Shortly thereafter they returned to Canada to build their life there. Tina was passionate about her love for the Lord, her family, gardening, and animals. Mom was a great example of showing love to all creatures of our God and King, and was passionate about helping those for whom life was not easy, being a daily example of being the hands and feet of Jesus. She was very involved in working with the physically and mentally challenged throughout the years; providing respite, and forging loving friendships with so many. Tina is predeceased by her parents Flora and Klazina Van Nes, her siblings Annie Schop (Van Nes), Kees Van Nes, Dirk Van Nes and Bill Van Nes. She is survived by her beloved husband Bert Huizing, and their children, Chris (Diana) Huizing, Phil (Karen) Huizing, Howard (Sarah) Huizing, Joy (Bart) Saathof, Marlene (Andreas) Kammenos; their grandchildren, Nicole (Justin) Dudney, Joel Huizing, Megan Huizing, Amanda Huizing, Kari Huizing, Leah Saathof, Daniel Huizing, Bethany Saathof, Rebecca Huizing, Luke Saathof, Caleb Saathof, Nicholas Kammenos, Anna Kammenos, Joel Kammenos, Liam Huizing, Noah Huizing and Elijah Huizing, and their great grandchildren, Levi Dudney, Malachi Dudney and Hannah Dudney; also her honorary sons Sebastian (Anu) Naslund with their kids Asha and Jaiden and Zebulan Naslund. She is also survived by her sisters Corrie (Van Nes) Meyers and Hennie (Van Nes) Wubs.

Special thanks to Dr. Milne for his love, concern and compassion shown to our Mom. In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to Covenant House in Tina’s honour.
