Roeke, Mary

It is with profound sadness that our amazing, sweet Mother, Oma, Great Oma, Sister, Sister in Law, Auntie, Cousin, and beloved Friend to so many, passed away on February 4, 2018. Mary will be deeply missed by her children, Ken (Anita), Ed (Laurie) Allan and Marilyn as well as her grandchildren Joshua, Jarrod (Alyssa), Kristin (Cory), Katrina, Justin, Amanda, Aaron, Andrea (Matt) and great grandchildren Jack, Ethan, Twila and Jordan. Also mourning the loss of Mary are her siblings Willy (Peter) Dyksterhuis, Marina Van Oosten, Francine (Panc) VanVeen, Arnout (Stacy) Steenhart, Mike (Sheena) Steenhart, Jack Steenhart, Cathy (Bryan) Shepperd and various nieces and nephews both in Canada and abroad.

Mary was predeceased by her loving and devoted husband Gerald, her oldest son John (Carol), her beloved grandson Travis and her parents, Jacobus and Maria Steenhart.

Mary was born in Cadzand,August 20, 1933 in the Netherlands in the province of Zeeland. A few years after Hollands liberation Mary, 17 years old at the time, immigrated to Canada with her family and settled in the Taber, AB area. About a year later Mary met the love of her life, Gerry.
