DE BOON, Jannie Rozina
May 15, 1919 Hardinxveld,
March 29, 2017 Calgary, Alberta,
After a complete and wonderful life, Jannie Rozina de Boon went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at the age of 97 years. She was blessed with a strong faith in God and her enjoyment of family and friends was paramount.
Jannie was born in the Netherlands and in October 1944 married her late husband, Arie de Boon. In July 1954, they came to Canada and settled in Red Deer. Jannie lived in Red Deer for over 60 years before moving to Calgary to be closer with her immediate family in November 2014.
She is lovingly remembered by her son George and his wife Janet; three grandchildren, Samantha (Russell), Kristy and Stephen (Megan); and one great grandson, George, all of Calgary. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and friends, both in Canada and the Netherlands. Jannie was predeceased by her husband; three sisters; one brother; and numerous brothers and sisters-in-law.
The family would especially like to thank all those who supported and cared for her after her late husband, Arie de Boon, passed away in July 1994. She lived a long life after his death and could not have done it without the love and support of family, friends and caregivers.
Those wishing to pay their respects may do so on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Eventide Funeral Chapel (4820-45 Street) in Red Deer. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made directly to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. A celebration of Jannie’s life will be held at the First Christian Reformed Church (16 McVicar Street) in Red Deer on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 11 a.m. with Pastor Gary Bomhof officiating. Interment will follow at Alto Reste Cemetery.
