March 22, 2019
With love and sadness, we say good-bye to the amazing Hermien van Moorsel, who passed away on March 22, 2019 surrounded by her loved ones.
Hermien leaves rich memories of love, laughter, and friendship. She loved singing, art, crafts, nature, and meeting new people taking an interest in everyone she met. Her ability to make people laugh and feel special was truly a gift.
Hermien loved her family more than anything; she is survived by her loving husband Tom and their children Marsha, Mark (Vicky), David (Carmela) and Kelsey (Paul). She was also a proud Oma to five grandchildren: Lilyana, River, Liam, Tom, and Adam.
Thanks to the many dear friends who were there when she needed them the most. Thank you to Doctor Peter Mah, the staff from homecare, and everyone on Unit 32 at Red Deer Hospital.
Hermien requested that there be no somber funeral service but instead that a celebration of life event be organized for this summer, filled with laughter and happy memories.
In lieu of flowers, Hermien asked that donations be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation to fund Leiomyosarcoma research.
