VELDSTRA; Tryntje (Tina)

On the morning of May 30th, our Lord called His dear child, our mother, grandmother (Beppe) and great-grandmother, Tina Veldstra, home. She was born January 31, 1921 (94 years) in Hemrik, the Netherlands, in the Dutch province of Friesland. She leaves to mourn her children, Freda (John), Ann (Al), Clare (Bill), Clarence (Kathleen), Janet, (son Mike, deceased), 14 grandchildren, and 23 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by many relatives in the Netherlands. Tina was predeceased by her parents, brothers and sisters in the Netherlands, her loving husband Arjen (1991) and son Mike (2011). Tina was a woman of great faith, a legacy for all of us to follow. We take comfort that she is now home with her Lord and Savior, a place where she longed to be, especially during these last few months of her earthly journey. The family would like to thank the staff at ARH (Cheam 2 and 3) and Tabor Home for all the wonderful loving care she received during her last 4 months. A Memorial Service for Tina was held at Living Hope CRC on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 1:00 pm. Pastor Bert Slofstra officiated.
