OOSTERVEER, Wilhelmina "Willa" Theodora - Peacefully at Caressant Care Nursing Home on August 20th, 2015 in her 102nd year. She was born in Leidschendam, Holland on August 15th, 1914. Beloved mother of Anne (Tom) Utting and mother in law of Claire Westley. Dearly loved by grandchildren, Monique (Bill) Vail, Evan Oosterveer, Brian Oosterveer and Amanda (Gus) Oosterveer. She will also be missed by her great grandchildren, Jessica Vail, Alyssa Vail, William Vail; Jack Oosterveer and Eden Oosterveer. Dear sister of Truus van den Akker and sister in law of Joop and Engelien Oosterveer of Holland. Predeceased by her husband Jake (May 1983), son Jack (Oct. 1983) and her brothers Jan de Bouvere and Karel de Bouvere. Willa immigrated to Canada with her husband and two children in 1949 and was a stay at home Mom. She loved to swim and was well known at the Southside Pool. As she hated snow and cold she spent her winters in Florida from age sixty three to ninety six. Willa never forgot her home country and took several trips there to visit family. While there, she would take side trips to other countries, either alone, or with cousins or nieces who were always happy to spend time with her. Every summer for thirty years she would spend at Port Burwell camping with the entire family and celebrating her birthday there. She lived life to the fullest and was an inspiration to us all. She will be greatly missed. Visitation will be held at the BROCK AND VISSER FUNERAL HOME , 845 Devonshire Ave., Woodstock 519-539-0004 on Friday August 21st 2015 from 7-9 pm. The Mass of Christian Burial will take place at Holy Trinity Catholic Parish, 1420 Devonshire Ave., Woodstock, on Saturday August 22nd 2015 at 11:00 am. Interment St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery. If desired, memorial contributions to Holy Trinity Catholic Church or charity of one's choice would be appreciated. Online condolences at www.brockandvisser.com
